Orezone Improves on Final Bombore Metallurgical Results

Indicated gold recoveries of 82% for oxide and 80% for transition resources

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2009) - Orezone Gold Corporation (TSX:ORE) is pleased to report the final column test results on its 100% owned Bombore gold deposit located in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The final test results for the near surface oxide and mixed oxide/sulphide (transition) resources are better than the interim results announced on October 14, 2009.

Metallurgical Highlights

Column Leach Test

--  82% weighted gold recoveries for the oxide and 80% for the transition
    resources after 44 days of leaching (see Table 1); 
--  Cyanide consumption of 0.19 kg/t for the oxide and 0.43 kg/t for the
    transition resources; 
--  Recent Agglomeration Optimization: 3 kg/t cement for the transition and
    7 to 8 kg/t for the oxide resources, depending on rock type. Initial
    testing using 9 kg/t cement for the oxide resource yielded good flow
    rate and fair to excellent pellet condition after 44 days (see Table 2).


These results indicate that the projected processing costs could be reduced by a further 17% for the oxide and 9% for the transition material from what was estimated based on the initial results announced on October 14, 2009.

Drilling Programs

Although the Company's primary focus is the expansion of the oxide and transition resources, a six hole 3,000 m diamond drill program is underway to test the geological model to a depth of 300 m below four pit shells. The program will be completed by year-end with results expected to be announced during the first quarter of 2010.

In 2010, the Company will carry out a $3 Million delineation drill program to both increase and upgrade the oxide and transition resources. This drill program will be completed by the end of the second quarter. Updated scoping study results and a baseline study of the project foot print will be released in the first quarter. The Company is continuing to study power costs for grinding and processing of the sulphide resource using conventional milling techniques as they may provide additional upside for the development of the project beyond a heap leach operation.

The Bombore gold deposit hosts 0.93 Million ounces of Indicated resources and 1.78 Million ounces of Inferred resources at an average gold grade of approximately 0.5 g/t in the near surface oxide zone and 1.0 g/t in the underlying primary sulphide resource. Approximately half of the inferred resource is oxide and transition material amenable to heap leach processing.

The Bombore property has the potential to host a large, open pit gold project with very good infrastructure in place compared to many projects in West Africa as it is located just 80km east of the capital city of Ouagadougou and adjacent to a major national highway, near a large water reservoir, and accessible to an international power grid expected to be constructed in the near future.

Dr. Pascal Marquis, Vice President of Exploration for Orezone, supervised the metallurgical sampling program. Alex Mitchell, Principal Metallurgist with GBM Minerals Engineering Consultants Limited, designed and supervised the test work program. The test work was performed by AMMTEC laboratory in Perth, Australia. The samples sent to AMMTEC were selected to be representative of the various grades and rock types for 85% of the Bombore gold resources. Mr. Mitchell and Dr. Marquis are both Qualified Persons under National Instrument 43-101 and approved the technical information in this release.
