Golden Band Resources Project Financing Update


    GBN: TSX Venture Exchange

    SASKATOON, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - Golden Band Resources Inc. (GBN: TSXV)
announced today that a letter of engagement has been signed with a New
York-based investment bank with which it has entered into advanced discussions
for the financing for the Company's La Ronge Gold Project. The Company
believes that this alternative structure will secure the project financing on
terms that are more beneficial for the Company and which will not result in
the dilution of our existing shareholders. Given the clear advantages to the
Company of this alternative financing structure, the Company has decided to
not pursue the debenture financing that was previously announced (see news
release of July 2, 2009).

    About Golden Band

    Golden Band Resources, already Saskatchewan's leading gold explorer, is
now poised to also become a gold producer. Golden Band is a well-financed,
Saskatchewan-based, publicly listed company (GBN: TSXV) whose focus is the
long-term, systematic exploration and development of its 100%-owned La Ronge
Gold Belt properties. Since 1994, Golden Band has assembled through staking
and strategic acquisition a land package of more than 750 km(2), 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.
