Jinfeng February production to be impacted by power supply



    TORONTO, Jan. 29 /CNW/ - Sino Gold was advised yesterday that full power
may not be available to Jinfeng until after the Chinese New Year holiday
(around the 21st of February). The authorities had previously advised that
work to the power lines and supply would be completed by the 28th January.
    Recent severe winter ice storms have impacted delivery of coal to power
stations in southern China, resulting in electricity supplies being restricted
by authorities in Guizhou Province.
    Gold production will continue at Jinfeng during this period but will be
less than previously forecast gold production for February of 12,700 ounces.
    The Company will advise the market as soon as full power to Jinfeng is
restored.

contingencies. The Company cautions the reader that such forward-looking
