SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2013) - Manitou Gold Inc. (News - Market indicators) ("Manitou" or the "Company") reports Diamond drill results from the Sherridon project located in Northwestern Ontario. The company completed two shallow Diamond drill holes in the fall of 2012 which both intersected visible gold. Manitou has now vested 100% into the Sherridon project.

The company completed 27 short, widely spaced Diamond drill holes (4,968 metres) since optioning the project in 2009. Diamond drilling has focused on surface gold showings, geophysical anomalies and follow-up holes on gold intersections discovered during the drill program. Fourteen of the drill holes have intersections containing coarse visible gold associated with sheared volcanic rocks. The relatively high number of visible gold occurrences within the wide spaced drill holes over several kilometres suggests the presence of considerable gold in the system. 

Diamond drill holes SH-12-27 and SH-12-28 (reported in this release) were completed on the same section as Diamond drill holes SH-12-24 and SH-12-25 (see news release May 22, 2012). DDH SH-12-28 intersected three discrete shear zones including 16.8 g/t Au over a core length of 0.6 metre and is located 35 metres down dip from SH-12-27. The three gold bearing shears have only been tested to a vertical depth of 125 metres and remain open. Drill hole SH-12-27 intersected 7.5 g/t Au over a core length of 1.1 metres which is located 25 metres down dip from Hole SH-12-25. Both SH-12-24 and SH-12-25 contained multiple shear zones with visible gold including 18.8 g/t Au over 4.5 metres in SH-12-25.

Todd Keast, President and CEO of Manitou commented "The widespread distribution of gold within the system is a positive exploration feature. Our focus in future exploration programs will be to expand the extent of the known gold bearing shear structures and to identify larger scale structures."

Manitou is a Canadian exploration company with a 189 square kilometre land package of highly prospective gold properties located in the historical Gold Rock District, in Northwestern Ontario. This under-explored area has a very attractive geological setting hosting 61 known gold occurrences including three past producing mines (Big Master, Laurentian and Elora). Until recently, the area has remained relatively untouched by modern-day exploration, pointing to excellent discovery potential over this large land package.

The 2013 exploration program is currently underway with 5,000 metres of Diamond drilling in progress on the Elora property directly adjacent to Manitou's high-grade Kenwest project. (See news release February 13, 2013).

Todd Keast, P. Geo., is the Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101 who has reviewed and is responsible for the technical information presented in this news release.
