VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- Prosperity Goldfields Corp. (the "Company" or "Prosperity") (TSX VENTURE: PPG) reports assay results from the first four drill holes from the ongoing winter drill program on its 100% owned Kiyuk Lake gold property (the "Property"). Multiple zones of gold mineralization have been intercepted in three of the first four drill holes from the Rusty Zone. Highlights include:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Hole KI13-001 35.9 m at 4.95 g/t Au from 134.1 m----------------------------------------------------------------------------Hole KI13-003 12.0 m at 6.61 g/t Au from 80.0 m----------------------------------------------------------------------------Hole KI13-004 24.1 m at 3.40 g/t Au from 34.0 m 28.0 m at 1.53 g/t Au from 66.0 m 8.0 m at 8.24 g/t Au from 168.0 m 30.0 m at 2.87 g/t Au from 224.0 m----------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Our initial holes at Rusty Zone further define this robust breccia-hosted gold system by demonstrating continuity of mineralization, confirming strong gold grades, and that mineralization begins near surface," commented Prosperity CEO, Adrian Fleming. "Grades quoted are for a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off using a rigorous statistical treatment. At a zero g/t Au cut-off and averaging all of assays of the mineralized core in hole KI13-004 we see a wide gold zone; 249.8 m at 1.6 g/t Au from 8.2 m. Although more drilling is required to adequately define the Rusty Zone, it is clear from these early holes that we are dealing with a strongly mineralized gold system. I'm looking forward to the assays from the balance of our current two-drill program."

Gold mineralization at Rusty is hosted by brecciated sandstone with a matrix composed of varying proportions of albite, actinolite, calcite, dolomite and quartz. Magnetite and pyrrhotite occur in the matrix of the breccia creating an intense magnetic high visible in ground magnetic data collected in 2012. KI13-001 and KI13-004 drilled through the core of the magnetic body (see Figure 1, Drill Plan: These holes demonstrate continuity of mineralization by filling a 200 m gap between 2012 drill holes (previously reported KI12-001 and KI12-003) and by extending the zone of mineralization further to the west-north west. As shown by the intercept at the bottom of KI13-003 gold mineralization also occurs within magnetic low zones flanking the main body. The reported widths of composite intervals are apparent thicknesses and the overall shape of the mineralized zone is not yet known. KI13-004 ended in mineralization at target depth (see Figure 2, Hole 4 Cross Section:

To date nine drill holes have been completed at the Rusty Zone, three at Bancroft, two at North Snake and one at Rasmussen. Further assay results are pending. Additional drilling is proceeding at untested targets including Rasmussen. Table 2 provides details of collar coordinates and Figure 3 ( shows details of the current winter drill program.

The exploration program is being directed by Adrian Fleming, CEO and a Director of Prosperity with additional specialist expertise in geology, geochemistry and geophysics being provided by CSA Global Geoscience Ltd.

A comprehensive QA/QC program is in place to monitor precision and accuracy of assay results. Drill core samples are submitted with certified reference materials and analyzed by SGS Minerals Services, Red Lake, Ontario. Gold analyses are by fire assay using a 30 g charge and an atomic absorption spectrometry finish. Over-range assays greater than 3 g/t are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish. SGS Mineral Services is ISO 9001 accredited.
