These three holes were drilled approximately 100 metres to the west of the three holes described in the Company's news release of March 16, 2011. A 200 metre-long segment of the main Urumalqui Vein has now been defined at 50-metres intervals up to depths of 200 metres below surface. AndeanGold intends to take an one thousand-metre length of the mineralized structure to this level of drill testing which should be sufficient for a maiden resource estimate, which AndeanGold plans to commission upon completion, and subject to the results, of the current drill program. A Longitudinal Section of the current drilling at Urumalqui Vein may be found at the Company's website www.gitennes.com/projects/urumalqui.

AndeanGold has in place a QA/QC program that includes chain of custody of samples; standards and blanks. Analyses and assays are performed by Inspectorate Lab in Lima, Peru; with a check assay program that includes sending a proportion of the sample pulps to a second independent laboratory.

In February 2010 Gitennes signed an option agreement with AndeanGold Ltd. whereby the Company granted it the right to earn a 60% interest in the Urumalqui project. In order to earn its interest AndeanGold must spend $3,000,000 in qualifying exploration expenditures on the project over a four-year term, which shall include a minimum of 3,000 metres of drilling by the end of the second year and 7,000 metres of cumulative drilling by the end of the third year. Andean must also issue 80,000 shares to the Company in four tranches of 20,000 shares each. Except for the first trance Gitennes may elect to receive cash in lieu of shares, with the amount not to exceed $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000 with respect to the first, second and third year anniversary date payments, respectively. If the market value of the shares on the respective payment dates exceeds the maximum cash payment amount on such date, the difference will be paid in equivalent shares.
