VANCOUVER, Oct. 21 /CNW/ - PMI Gold Corporation (TSX.V:PMV) - the Company is pleased to announce that it has paid in full all amounts outstanding to Trafalgar Capital Specialized Investment Fund, FIS with respect to a $3.5 million bridge loan originally advanced on July 8th, 2008. Mr. Jeffrey Sternberg, who joined the Board to assist us with the loan, has tendered his resignation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Sternberg and Trafalgar Capital for their assistance with our purchase of the Kubi Gold project in Ghana.

In addition, the Company announces that the next phase of exploration drilling at Kubi will commence shortly, with a series of drill holes designed to test along strike and down dip of gold mineralization which was previously noted in hole KV-09-513 (please see our News Release dated September 9, 2009:

http://www.pmigoldcorp.com/s/News.asp?ReportID=362551&_Type=News-Releases&_Title=New-Gold-Zone-Discovered-At-Kubi ).

New drill targets are also being developed with a program of auger drilling to test for gold mineralization at the base of the alluvium in areas defined by our recent ground electromagnetic geophysics. Much of the Kubi project area is covered by circa 5 metre thick surficial deposits that geochemically mask underlying gold mineralization. The significant gold mineralization in hole KV-09-513, first outlined by the ground electromagnetic survey, had no definable surface geochemical signature.

The Company is also commencing a third party review of near surface gold resources that may remain at our Obotan Gold project in Ghana, with respect to a potential toll milling operation. Resolute Amansie Limited -- a subsidiary of Resolute Mining of Australia -- between 1997 and 2002, mined a total of 730,000 oz. of gold from Obotan at an average grade of 2.2 g/t.

Resolute published a final estimate of mineral resources at Obotan, post mining, in their 2003 Annual Report, filed with the Australian Stock Exchange: http://www.asx.com.au/asxpdf/20031021/pdf/3jfw9h0jq1yh9.pdf .
