African Gold Group, Inc. Randgold Resources Reports RAB Drilling is Underway at Bagoe Concessions

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - African Gold Group, Inc., ("AGG" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AGG) is pleased to report that Randgold Resources advises it has commenced a RAB drill program at the Company's Bagoe concessions, held in joint venture with AGG.

The Bagoe Joint Venture between AGG and Randgold Resources was announced in a press release dated November 15, 2007. Exploration work over the two concessions started December 19th, 2007, with a broad reconnaissance mapping program including some pitting and soil geochemistry over areas of interest. The aim of this initial project was to gain a general understanding of the geological and structural setting of the permits, to produce some base maps with which to work with and to formulate models which will be tested by further exploration work during 2008. A camp has been established in the village of Tienkoungoba which is situated on the main Bougouni-Sikasso road and is 1km west of the Baoule River bridge.

Three geological settings were identified in the region: the Kekoro Formation in the west, the Morila Formation in the center plus the Banifin shear and the Madinani Formation to the east.

AGG submits the following verbatim excerpt from Randgold's December 31, 2007 quarterly report:

"In Mali South, work has focused on the reconnaissance of the Bagoe East and Bagoe West permits held in joint venture with African Gold Group (AGG).
