VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 -- True Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: TGM) ("True Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report that the recent metallurgical core drilling campaign at the Company's Karma Gold Project ("Karma Project") in Burkina Faso, West Africa is now complete, and samples have been shipped to McClelland Laboratories in Nevada for column leach test work.
The most recent metallurgical drill results were returned from the Kao and Nami deposits, two of the five deposits at the Karma Project. Assay highlights from Kao include:
-- 53.66 g/t gold over 10.0 metres, including 263.0 g/t gold over 2.0 metres, in KAO-DD-13-187-- 2.57 g/t gold over 32.0 metres, in KAO-DD-12-097-- 4.73 g/t gold over 16.0 metres, in KAO-DD-12-098-- 2.03 g/t gold over 8.0 metres, in KAO-DD-12-099-- 1.31 g/t gold over 34.0 metres and 1.65 g/t gold over 14.0 metres, in KAO-DD-13-188-- 2.28 g/t gold over 18.0 metres, in KAO-DD-13-189
Assay highlights from Nami include:
-- 22.50 g/t gold over 2.0 metres, in RMB-DD-13-065-- 0.93 g/t gold over 33.5 metres, in RMB-DD-13-067

The holes were drilled as part of a comprehensive column leach sampling program to support the Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") currently in progress on the Karma Project, and were designed to capture oxide, transition and sulphide material on representative cross sections throughout the Karma Project deposits.
The HQ-sized core drilling campaign totaled 822 metres in 14 holes at the Kao deposit and 314 metres in four holes at the Nami deposit, with all holes drilled within the planned pit shells. The holes were drilled at 270 and 360 degree azimuths within the central portion of each deposit, with dips ranging from -55 to -75 degrees, and a maximum depth of 99.50 metres.

True widths are estimated to be 50 to 90% of the intersected widths. Samples were assayed by ALS Chemex in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, West Africa. Assays were by Fire Assay with AAS finish and repeats of all AAS assays over 1.0 g/t by Fire Assay with gravimetric finish. Control samples (accredited standards, blanks and duplicate samples at the preparation stage) were inserted on a regular basis every ten samples. Results were monitored on receipt of assays.
