TORONTO, April 14 /CNW/ - St Andrew Goldfields Ltd. (T-SAS), ("SAS" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the ongoing second phase of drilling at the Taylor Project that has better delineated the gold mineralization at the West Porphyry and Shoot zones and continued to intersect a new footwall zone to the West Porphyry Zone. The Taylor Project is located in the western portion of the Company's land package in the Timmins Mining District.

Highlights of Drilling:

West Porphyry Zone

          Hole TA11-002: 7.50 g/t Au over 16.1 metres
      Including       16.17 g/t Au over 6.6 metres
          Hole TA11-003: 3.82 g/t Au over 13.6 metres
      Including       33.29 g/t Au over 0.7 metres

Shoot Zone

          Hole TA11-005:  4.33 g/t Au over 5.9 metres
      Including       27.80 g/t Au over 0.5 metres

Note:  All lengths are reported as true width

The current drilling program is designed to provide additional data in areas where previous drilling was widely spaced, thereby providing higher confidence in defining the gold distribution, and to continue to test possible extensions at the West Porphyry and Shoot zones. Generally, the recent drilling results are in agreement with previous drilling results.

In addition, drilling on the West Porphyry Zone continues to confirm the presence of a new zone of gold mineralization 60 metres below the previously defined zones. This newly defined zone extends westwards onto the recently acquired Bourgeois claim along a strike length of approximately 600 metres. The zone varies in thickness along strike from 2 metres to 25 metres and remains open in all directions. Recent results from the ongoing drilling campaign are summarized in the table below:

2 Visible Gold observed.

"The drilling at Taylor continues to prove positive results in grade, intercept widths and continuity" said Jacques Perron, President & CEO of SAS. "These results solidify our confidence in the potential for the future development of the Taylor Project, which we will continue to drill during 2011. We currently have 2 drills focussed on infill drilling and testing the extensions of the zones at depth with additional drills being added in the coming weeks."

Drilling, Assaying and QA/QC

Surface drilling at the Taylor Project was completed by Orbit Garant. Analytical work was performed by ALS Minerals in Sudbury, an accredited lab. SAS utilized a quality control/quality assurance program consisting of a number of sample standards and blanks that were inserted into the group of samples, which represented approximately 5% of the total sample population.

Qualified Person

The exploration programs on the Company's various mineral properties are under the supervision of Michael Michaud, P.Geo, the Company's Vice President of Exploration, who is the qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, and who has reviewed and approved this news release.

Specifically this news release contains forward-looking information regarding the interpretation of exploration results received to date from the Taylor Project, and the continuance of additional exploration programs on this project throughout 2011. This forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward‐looking information. Factors that may cause actual results to vary materially include, but are not limited to, uncertainties relating to the interpretation of the geology, continuity, grade and size estimates of the mineral resources, unanticipated operational or technical difficulties which could escalate operating and/or capital costs, fluctuations in gold prices and exchange rates, insufficient funding or delays or inability to raise additional financing as required on satisfactory terms, changes in laws or regulations, changes in general economic conditions and changes in conditions in the financial markets.
