African Gold Group, Inc., Drilling at Kobada, Mali Focused on Surpassing 1,000,000 oz Gold Threshold

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 18, 2010) - African Gold Group, Inc., ("AGG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AGG) is pleased to report that a reverse circulation ("RC") and diamond drill ("DD") campaign has begun at Kobada, Mali.

The primary objective of the program will be to surpass the 1,000,000 oz gold threshold within "Zone 1" of the Kobada deposit. "Zone 1" currently measures 1.2 km in strike length and represents 10% of the 12 km anomalous Kobada trend.

The drill campaign was initiated February 17, 2010, and consists of a minimum of 10,000 meters of RC drilling with selected diamond drill holes to comprise a part of the overall program.

Throughout the 2010 program, AGG will focus its exploration efforts on the Kobada structure and a coincident 12 km long arsenic-in-soil anomaly. Drill holes have been planned to:

1. Explore the Kobada structure to the north-northeast. Drill holes will target coincident airborne geophysical (high resolution magnetic/radiometric) and geochemical anomalies and be guided by geologic concepts developed in the area of the current Mineral Resource at Kobada.

2. Expand the current Mineral Resource by step out drilling to the immediate north and south, plus shallow drilling to the west.

3. Improve confidence in the resource area by infill drilling to a minimum of 50 m spacing, and in some areas 25 m spacing.

The Company is pleased to advise that it has engaged the services of Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates ("Scott Wilson RPA"), to assist AGG in achieving the above mentioned objectives associated with this multi-phase program at its Kobada, Mali gold project.

Asankrangwa Holdings, Ghana

The Company has determined that it will initiate its exploration activities at its Asankrangwa Holdings with the commencement of an airborne geophysical survey that will encompass the entire 456 sq km footprint. The objective of the program will be to identify structural targets, on a regional scale, that will be followed up with regional geochemistry to assist in the identification of drill targets. The Company is in the process of evaluating quotations submitted by airborne geophysical survey companies and is expected to select a service provider in the near future. The Company is confident that work will commence at its Asankrangwa Holdings on or about March 31, 2010.

AGG's Asankrangwa Holdings, located in Ghana, West Africa, represent a 456 sq km footprint, comprised of five contiguous concessions, of which the Assuowunu concession, located in the north-west quadrant of the region, is on strike and contiguous with Keegan Resource's 3.5 million ounce Esaase gold deposit.

African Gold Group, Inc., based in Toronto, Canada, is engaged in the identification, acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects that are situated along significant gold trends within West Africa. To date, the Company controls a total of twelve gold concessions that are consolidated in five distinct standalone exploration projects, of which three projects are located in Ghana and the remaining two are located in Mali, West Africa.
