[Editor's note: there are three photos in the PDF associated with this Press Release.]

Kilo Goldmines Ltd. ("Kilo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) is pleased to provide an update on its gold exploration activities on the Company's Somituri and Masters projects in the north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Somituri Project

The planned 10,000 metre diamond drilling program commenced on target in February at the Adumbi site, a former gold producing mine that was active between 1943 and 1958. One drill rig is currently on site (Figure 1) with a second rig expected to arrive by mid-March. In addition, 3 adits (Figure 2), spaced at approximately 200 metre intervals through the Adumbi gold deposit have been sampled. Continuous horizontal channel samples were collected from one wall in each of the adits (Figure 3); the foot wall and hanging wall zones of the previously mined gold bearing quartz vein were sampled. All of the samples from two of these adits as well as some of the samples from the third adit have been shipped to ALS Chemex in Tanzania for sample preparation. The results for these samples are expected in April 2010. 

Masters Project

Diamond drill core samples from 20 drill-holes completed in 2009 have recently been shipped to ALS Chemex in Tanzania for sample prep; pulps will be shipped to ALS Chemex in Johannesburg for gold analysis. The results for these samples are expected by mid to late April 2010. 

Quality Control (QC) and Analytical Procedures

The QC procedures for the diamond drill-core samples are as stated in Kilo's December 17th 2009 News Release. Kilo's quality control procedures for the adit samples include the insertion of duplicates, commercial standards and blanks with each batch of adit samples submitted for sample preparation and analysis. The diamond drill core samples as well as the adit samples were transported from the DRC by a commercial carrier to ALS Chemex in Mwanza, Tanzania for preparation. A pulp of each sample will be couriered to ALS Chemex in Johannesburg, South Africa for gold analysis by the FA-AA method on a 50 gram charge. ALS Chemex is an internationally accredited laboratory.

The diamond drilling and adit sampling programs were planned and supervised by geological consultant Stanley Robinson. Stanley Robinson, M.Sc., P.Geo is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who has reviewed the scientific and technical information contained in this release.

PDAC Conference

Kilo Goldmines management would like to extend an invitation to visit us at the PDAC Convention in Toronto at booth #2833 in the South Convention Center Pavilion. Representatives of the Company will be available to discuss the Company and its projects in further detail.
