Gitennes Receives Payment on Urumalqui Project and Amends Agreement

VANCOUVER, May 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Gitennes Exploration Inc. ("Gitennes or the Company", GIT-TSXV) has received $150,000 and 107,000 common shares from AndeanGold Ltd. under the Share Sale and Mining Agreement (the "Agreement") which gives AndeanGold the right to purchase a 40% interest in the Urumalqui Project.  The Agreement required AndeanGold to make a payment of $350,000 and 250,000 commons shares on May 17 but the Agreement has been amended by deferring $200,000 and 143,000 common shares to September 17, 2013 and extending all future payments by four months.  All other terms of the Agreement remain unchanged.  AndeanGold is exploring Urumalqui under the Agreement and a 60% Option Agreement that together allows AndeanGold to own 100% of Urumalqui.

Under the 60% Option Agreement Andean Gold must complete a further 1,929 metres of drilling at Urumalqui by July 8, 2013 to honour the terms of the option agreement.  AndeanGold announced on May 15 that it has signed a drilling contract for 2,000 metres of diamond drilling and that two drill rigs are being mobilized to Urumalqui.

About Urumalqui:

Urumalqui is an advanced silver-gold project located approximately 70 kilometres by road east of the port city of Trujillo, Perú.  Gitennes acquired Urumalqui in 2003 in a joint venture and In June 2005 the joint venture was terminated and Gitennes assumed 100% control of the Project.  Exploration activities between 2003 and 2008 included three core drilling campaigns totalling 47 holes.  In 2010 the project was optioned to AndeanGold Ltd whom undertook a fourth diamond drilling campaign (31 holes totalling 5,071 metres).  In November 2011 an Initial Resources Estimate for the Urumalqui Vein (the principal focus of drilling up to that date) was prepared by Mine and Quarry Engineering Services, Inc.  The technical report supporting the estimate is available under both AndeanGold and Gitennes' company profiles at www.sedar.com.
