"We are most pleased and encouraged by the extent of gold mineralization we have intercepted in this first release of our southern step out drill holes. Our current Zone 1 resource is contained within 1,100 meters of strike length. Today's drill results extend our southern strike by 200 meters. On April 07, 2011, AGG released 27 northern step out drill holes that extended our northern strike length by 2,000 meters. In essence, our Zone 1 mineralized strike length currently extends over 3,300 meters and remains open in both directions along strike and at depth. Our 2011 RC drill program is comprised entirely of step out drilling to a maximum vertical depth of 100 meters. We continue to drill RC fences on 100 meter spacing up to 1,200 meters south of our current resource. We are drill testing the strike extensions of our recently announced new gold discovery at Foroko North and we are testing lateral targets that lie as much as 5,000 meters east of the Zone 1 deposit, in addition to, distinct targets that are situated up to 8,000 meters north of Zone 1, along perceived strike. This year's field program is intended to bring visibility to the 2,000,000 oz Au threshold, as an interim target, derived from within the oxide profile of the deposit. We envision both a low capital and operating cost operation with bulk open pit mining and gravity alone gold recovery," states AGG Director, Pierre Lalande, P. Geo.

Sampling - QA/QC Program

RC cuttings are recovered at the bottom outlet of the RC rig cyclone into 50-kg capacity poly-weave bags to recover the cuttings from each 1 meter of drill penetration. Each one meter sample weighs an average of approximately 19 to 23 kg. Each sample is passed through a 3-tier Jones Riffler (1 to 8 split), the samples are riffled twice to obtain from 3 to 5 kg of cuttings which are put in a numbered sample bag. Each bag is sealed and picked up on site by ALS Chemex Laboratories for delivery to its Burkina Faso facilities. The remaining 14 to 18 kg of cuttings (field rejects) are stored in camp under tarps to protect the bags against the elements.

Original samples are analyzed using Leachwell on 2 kg of pulp. Leachwell is a bottle roll cyanidation procedure with the addition of a catalyst to speed up gold dissolution. A QA/QC program is in place and includes: blank (1 in 20 samples), duplicates (1 in 20), standards (1 in 20), external lab checks (1 in 30) and two different analytical procedures checks (1 in 100).

African Gold Group, Inc., based in Toronto, Canada, is engaged in the identification, acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects that are situated along significant gold trends within West Africa. To date, the Company controls a total of eleven gold concessions that are consolidated in four distinct stand alone exploration projects. Three of these projects are located in Ghana and one project (Kobada) is located in Mali, West Africa.

Additional Information is available on the Company's website at and on and through the Company's offices at: Sun Life Financial Tower, Suite 2518, 150 King St. West, Toronto, Canada M5H 1J9.
