Golden Band Intersects Significant Gold on the Bingo Structure at Roy Lloyd Mine

SASKATOON, Sept. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Golden Band Resources Inc. (TSXV: GBN) (OTCQX: GBRIF) is pleased to announce that both shallow and deep drilling have intercepted significant gold mineralization on its Roy Lloyd Mine in the La Ronge Gold Belt of Saskatchewan.

Shallow drilling from surface on Bingo focused on defining near-surface open pit mineralization for inclusion into a surface mining operation. See Table 1 (http://www.goldenbandresources.com/gbn-nr-12-sep-12.html#table1) for summary results; highlights include:

HOLE No. INTERVAL m CORE LENGTH m TRUE WIDTH m g/t GOLD
OPN-08 14.00 - 19.85 5.85 3.30 15.06
OPN-10 15.25 - 20.00 4.75 3.36 9.15

Deep drilling from surface was completed for mine planning purposes and to explore the continuation of the Roy Lloyd underground mine mineralization to depth. See Table 2 (http://www.goldenbandresources.com/gbn-nr-12-sep-12.html#table2) for summary results, which include the following excellent hole:

HOLE No.   INTERVAL m CORE LENGTH m TRUE WIDTH m g/t GOLD
WD-206   394.20 - 407.84 13.64 11.73 19.80
including 395.00 - 401.09 6.09 5.93 33.29
including 397.07 - 398.15 1.08 0.93 99.13
including 405.31 - 407.54 2.23 2.07 25.73

As announced on September 5, 2012, the last hole of the underground drill program, RLUG-27, intercepted bonanza gold mineralization, further confirming potential for deep extension of economic mineralization in the Roy Lloyd Mine; see Table 3 (http://www.goldenbandresources.com/gbn-nr-12-sep-12.html#table3) for summary results (note that final calculations for true widths in this news release differ slightly from the September 5, 2012 news release):

HOLE No.   INTERVAL m CORE LENGTH m TRUE WIDTH m g/t GOLD
RLUG-27   233.06 - 241.23 8.17 5.32 66.85
including 234.00 - 240.79 6.79 4.42 80.12
including 238.14 - 240.79 2.23 1.73 128.37

RLUG-27 is the deepest intersection obtained in the Bingo deposit in this drill cycle, some 45 metres deeper than the nearest hole (RLUG-19). The deepest holes historically, WD-184 and WD-188B, are 157 to 200 metres north and 70 to 80 metres deeper and returned the following true-width intercepts: 1.99 g/t gold over 4.4 m, including 19 g/t gold over 0.3 m; and 1.16 g/t gold over 0.38 m, respectively.

The recent drilling confirmed gold mineralization both laterally to the north and deeper within the Bingo Structure. The near-surface mineralization was confirmed and Golden Band has proceeded with a small surface mine program to extract it. Potential for significantly increasing the underground resource has been verified within the drilling area with studies underway to define Measured and Indicated Resources over the area that is currently covered by Inferred Resources only. The updated resource estimate is expected soon, with mining potential to be defined in the coming weeks.

Further results are provided in Tables 1, 2, and 3, are also available on Golden Band's website, along with a longitudinal section (Figure 1 (http://www.goldenbandresources.com/gbn-nr-12-sep-12.html#figure1)). Additional discussions of prior results are provided in news releases of May 3 and September 5, 2012.

All samples from these drilling programs were assayed in the Company's Jolu Lab. The Jolu Lab is a non-accredited facility. Results are based upon a Standard Fire Assay method utilization of a 30-gram assay charge. Fire Assay results greater than 5 g/t gold were re-assayed using the Screened Metallic Assay method. Quality assurance/quality control of the assay results were monitored with a series of sample standards and sample blanks that Golden Band inserted into the sample sequences.
