ABOUT AVNEL GOLD

Avnel is a TSX-listed gold mining, exploration and development company with operations in southwestern Mali in West Africa. The Company's focus is to redevelop its 80%-owned Kalana Gold Project from a small-scale underground mine into a large open-pit mining operation, which has a 30-year exploitation license and covers an area of 374 km2.

In March 2014, the Company reported the results of a PEA prepared by Snowden that outlined a 14-year open-pit mine life recovering 1.46 million ounces. Utilizing a gold price of $1,110 per ounce and a 10% discount rate, the PEA reported a net present value of $194 million after-tax and imputed interest and an internal rate of return of 53% on a 100% project basis. The Company is now advancing the project to Preliminary Feasibility, which is scheduled to be completed near the end of 2014.
