MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- TomaGold Corporation (TSX VENTURE: LOT) ("TomaGold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the start of a 2,500-metre drilling program on the Monster Lake gold property, located 44 km southwest of Chibougamau, Quebec. The program will be carried out jointly with Quinto Real Capital Corporation (TSX VENTURE: QIT) ("Quinto"), TomaGold's partner in the Monster Lake project. Quinto has an option to acquire up to a 70% interest in the Monster Lake property (refer to press release dated November 26, 2012).

The main goal of the program is to test the extension of the 325 Zone at a depth of 125 to 300 metres. A 45-kg metallurgical sample taken previously from the 325 Zone returned an average head grade of 4.8 g/t from metallurgical testing.

David Grondin, President and CEO of TomaGold, stated that: "The metallurgical test results and previous drilling on the 325 Zone, one of five main zones identified along the four-kilometre gold-bearing corridor on the Monster Lake property, were very positive and show interesting gold potential. We therefore feel we should continue testing this zone at depth, and then do metallurgical testing on a composite drill core sample to determine the average gold grade at depth."

A summary of the best results obtained to date from drilling on the 325 Zone is as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Hole From To Length g/t Au Zone(#) (m) (m) (m)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------M-16-10 46.0 50.6 4.6 5.3 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-18-10 78.0 83.0 5.0 5.4 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-25-11 49.5 54.0 4.5 101.2 325 incl. 49.5 51.5 2.0 223.2----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-36-11 95.0 97.0 2.0 8.4 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-37-11 103.0 105.0 2.0 19.4 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-38-11 96.0 99.0 3.0 7.2 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-43-11 131.0 132.0 1.0 11.1 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------M-44-11 125.0 129.0 4.0 4.9 325----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Monster Lake property is located in northwestern Quebec, 44 kilometres southwest of the town of Chibougamau. It is easily accessible by road and near a major power line. Over 30,000 metres of diamond drilling has been done since 1984 along the four-kilometre mineralized corridor. During the winter of 2012, TomaGold drilled 16 holes for a total of 2,420 metres, and made a major discovery of 237.6 grams per tonne gold over 5.7 metres in Hole M-12-60. The mineralization is associated with dark quartz-sulphide veins within a shear zone 3-10 metres wide in basaltic units.
