GOLDEN BAND RESOURCES CONFIRMS KOMIS DEPOSIT'S HIGH-GRADE GOLD MINERALIZATION ALONG STRIKE AND TO DEPTH

SASKATOON, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - Golden Band Resources Inc. (GBN: TSXV) announced today the drillcore assay results of the previously announced resource expansion drilling program at the Company's 100% owned Komis gold deposit (see news releases of October 28 and December 23, 2010). A total of 1,532 metres of diamond drilling was completed in November 2010.

The Company is pleased to report that diamond-drillhole KO-10-06, with trace to minor visible gold, returned 907 g/t gold over 0.2 metres within an overall intersection grading 119.86 g/t gold over 1.5 metres. Diamond-drillhole KO-10-05 intersected 3.36 g/t gold over 10.5 metres. These drill holes tested the on-strike extension of the Komis deposit to the west of the deposit.

Diamond-drillhole KO-10-08, that tested the down-dip extension of the Komis deposit, intersected 111 g/t gold over 0.2 metres, within an overall intersection grading 23.42 g/t gold over 1.0 metres. An additional intersection in this diamond-drill hole returned 4.99 g/t gold over 7.0 metres.

A summary of the Standard Fire assays results are in Table 1, with plan and composite section figures available on the Company website. (http://www.goldenbandresources.com/gbn-nr-16-feb-11.html)

Ron Netolitzky, Executive Chairman, notes, "These assay results are extremely pleasing from the perspective that we can move forward with an aggressive development program for the Komis deposit. Our intention for this year will be to conduct more systematic drilling to the west and below the known resource, dewater the historic underground workings and commence the planning cycle for developing this deposit for production late in 2011."

QA/QC

The assay results are based on the standard fire assay method derived from split NQ drill core and utilization of a 50g standard fire assay charge. The final results for this program include check assay results of the significant intervals. Standard Fire Assay results greater than 5 g/t gold will be assayed using the screened metallic assay method for the significant intervals. All widths listed represent the downhole length of the interval and not the true width.

The quality assurance/quality control of the assay results is monitored by a series of sample standards and sample blanks which are routinely inserted by Golden Band into the sample sequences that are consigned for assaying to the Saskatchewan Research Council Geoanalytical Laboratories operating under ISO 17025 Standards.

Since 1994, Golden Band has assembled through staking and strategic acquisition a land package of more than 750 km2, including 12 known gold deposits, five former producing mines, and a licensed gold mill. Golden Band's key value drivers are the methodical and systematic targeting of primary to advanced-stage exploration while progressing along a parallel path to becoming a sustainable gold producer. The Company is aggressively pursuing its near-term goal of commercial production of its Bingo, Komis, and EP deposits with processing at the 100%-owned Jolu mill. The Company's objective, supported by a positive Pre-Feasibility Study completed in January 2009, is the annual production of at least 75,000 ounces of gold over a ten-year project life. Other longer-term objectives include the continuation of its highly successful exploration and acquisition strategy.
