Title:     New High-Grade Gold Lode Discovered at Surface on Finnish Project

Parties Extend Joint Venture Conditions

Toronto, Canada, September 14, 2011 - REBgold Corporation ("REBgold" or the "Company", TSX.V: RBG) is pleased to announce results from the remaining 1270 m of drilling on the 53 hole, 6073 m program of resource delineation drilling at the Rantasalmi gold property. The Rantasalmi property forms part of the joint venture with Belvedere Resources Ltd. ("Belvedere", TSX.V: BEL) which was entered into on 21st July 2011. A new resource statement will be issued in late September incorporating the results of the last two phases of drilling.

  • New high-grade gold lode discovered at surface with BELOSI077 intersecting 15.65m @ 9.96 g/t gold 48m east of the discovery hole BELOSI044 which intersected 14.18m @ 9.14 g/t Au .
  • BELOSI 67 significantly opens up the down plunge potential of the S Lode system at shallow levels.
  • BELOSI 75 continues to infill the up-dip portions of the U lode system
Mark Burridge (Chairman) commented, "The latest set of drilling results demonstrate the potential for a new high grade lode system to the East, highlighting the exploration potential along strike. The latest drill holes also continued to successfully infill the main lode system, confirming the likely consistency of high grade shoots."

Table 1: Intersections using a 1.0 g/t Au cut-off with a grade thickness greater than 3 gram meters. No top cut is applied. Maximum grade is 33.7g/t Au over 1.13m, one of five individual samples over 15 g/t Au (0.5 oz/t). Intersections are estimated to be 90% of true width.

Osikonm�ki Geology: The Osikonm�ki project occurs in a three kilometer long shear complex, hosted by a Proterozoic aged Tonalitic Intrusion. Most of the drilling to date has focused on the Eastern 800m of the shear where the mineralization is primarily associated with a 45 0 south dipping shear zone between 4 and 30 m thick. A series of higher grade chutes pitch at shallow angles across the plane of the main shear, plunging 200 to the ESE contain the better part of the mineralization and extend for at least 600 m down plunge. These chutes have been grouped into three principle lode systems the S, T and U lode systems. This drill program has been focused on infilling previous drilling to 40 meter centres between the bedrock surface and 100 meters vertical.

The drilling was undertaken by Drillcon SMOY of Finland, providing 42 mm diameter core. Samples are comprised of half Diamond core. Intersections are estimated to be 90% of true width. No top cuts are applied with the highest individual assay being 50.8 g/t gold over 0.49 metres. Core samples are sawn in half on site, prepped and assayed by 30g fire assay with an AAS finish at the Internationally accredited laboratories of ALS Chemex in Finland. The quality assurance-quality control (QAQC) program of Belvedere consists of the insertion of certified standards of known gold content every 20 samples, with blanks at the beginning of each batch. In addition, ALS Chemex inserts a number of blanks and standards into the analytical process. Standards, blanks and duplicates make up approximately 15% of the samples assayed. The remaining half core is retained on site for verification and reference purposes.

Amendment of the Joint Venture Terms:

Under the terms of the Shareholders' Agreement, REBgold has the right to earn up to a 50% interest in a special purpose joint venture company which holds the Kiimala and Rantasalmi projects by contributing expenditures of C$6 million over a 4 year period. To maintain its earn-in right, during the first year REBgold must contribute at least C$1.5 million on the projects, including reimbursing Belvedere for certain recent exploration expenditures (the "Pre-Existing Expenditures"). The parties have amended the Shareholders' Agreement to provide that 50% of the Pre-Existing Expenditures shall be reimbursed by REBgold on or before September 19, 2011, with the balance of the Pre-Existing Expenditures to be reimbursed by November 18, 2011. Currently, Belvedere Resources Finland Oy (a wholly-owned Finnish subsidiary of Belvedere) holds a 100% interest in the special purpose joint venture company. The Shareholders' Agreement will come into force upon satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions precedent, including a condition that REBgold shall have completed an equity financing as required to fund the first year's expenditure commitment. The time period for satisfying this condition precedent has been extended to November 18, 2011. Upon execution of the Shareholders' Agreement REBgold paid C$100,000 to Belvedere Resources Finland Oy. After the earn-in has been completed, a decision will be made whether to proceed to a feasibility study. If REBgold proceeds with and completes the feasibility study it will increase its stake in the projects to between 55% and 75% depending on the level of Belvedere's contribution to the study. A further 5% can be earned if REBgold's bioleaching technology can lead to a material improvement in the project economics.

Without limitation, statements regarding future plans and objectives of the Company (including statements relating to future drill results) are forward-looking statements that involve various degrees of risk.
