Giyani Gold Commences Drilling Program in South Africa

OAKVILLE, ON, July 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Giyani Gold Corp. ("Giyani Gold") is pleased to report drilling will commence at the Klein Letaba and Frankie projects in South Africa.  A total of 27 drill sites have been selected at the Klein Letaba and Frankie mine site targeting new structures identified from extensive geophysical surveys recently completed by Giyani Gold as previously reported on June 12, 2012.

Drilling will initially commence near to the original mine shaft of the Klein Letaba gold mine then backing up to intersect the Middle Zone and Frankie zones.  This Phase I 6,000 m drill program will assist Giyani Gold in determining the location of holes for future drilling programs to quickly define a NI 43-101 compliant resource/reserve.

The core will be split and logged at Giyani Gold's new core logging facility in a secure compound in the vicinity of Giyani, South Africa. Assaying and sample preparation will be conducted at ALS Chemex in Johannesburg, South Africa.

R.S. Middleton, VP of Exploration for Giyani Gold Corp., is responsible for the drilling program including the core logging, sampling of the drill core and assay procedures and quality assurance/quality control measures.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by R.S. Middleton P.Eng. who is acting as the Qualified Person for Giyani Gold.
