WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2013) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce that the winter drill program has commenced on its Rice Lake area properties optioned to San Gold Corporation ("San Gold"). The program started in mid-February, and San Gold intends to complete more than 9,000 metres of Diamond drilling prior to spring break-up.

San Gold's 2013 drilling plans for Wildcat's properties include approximately seventeen holes with an average core length of 500 metres. The focus will be the Mike Power property, which is located immediately west of San Gold's properties at Bissett, MB. Targets in the current drill program include the west-northwest trending Rice Lake shear and sub-parallel shear zones, cross-cutting shears and the unconformity at the base of the San Antonio formation. At the Rice Lake mine, structural traps and lithologic contacts are productive sites for gold deposition.

In August 2011, Wildcat optioned its Mike Power, Poundmaker and Jeep properties to San Gold under a multi-year agreement. This agreement was made following mineral exploration work by Wildcat, including drilling in early 2011 in which a wide shear zone of intermittent, anomalous gold mineralization along 180 metres of strike length was intersected in three holes (see news release March 23, 2011). Recently, San Gold re-inspected and re-assayed the core from Wildcat's holes MP-11-01, 06 and 07 on the Mike Power property. The results confirmed Wildcat's earlier conclusion that intermittent elevated gold mineralization exists across assayed core lengths of up to 150 metres. As a consequence, San Gold is focusing its current exploration efforts in the vicinity of the gold-bearing shear zones.

Wildcat's exploration program is managed by Tom Lewis, P. Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, who has reviewed all technical information in this release.
