Angus Mining Provides Update of Drilling Results Following Completion of Phase One Exploration Program at Ondundu Gold Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2011) - Angus Mining (Namibia) Inc. ("Angus Mining" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ANA) is pleased to provide an update of drilling results from the Ondundu Gold Project in Namibia following the completion of its phase one exploration program.

In the first phase of exploration, the Company completed over 12,900 meters of diamond drilling, and 1,200 meters of reverse circulation drilling across 61 drill holes. The program was designed to test the strike extent and width of the Ondundu Main Zone ("OMZ"), and to delineate a low grade, bulk tonnage gold resource. A map of the Ondundu gold project is available at

Through the addition of a second assay laboratory in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Company has worked through outstanding assay issues, and is satisfied that the results returned to date provide an accurate representation of the extent of gold mineralization in the OMZ Zone.

Angus Mining CEO, Fraser Buchan comments; "while on the whole results at the Ondundu Project have been slightly lower grade than we expected, mineralization has been widespread and consistent, and the potential for defining a large open pit deposit remains intact. The Project merits further exploration work, which we expect to complete through our partnership with Forsys Metals, with the aim of further defining an economic gold resource."

The Company expects to provide a corporate and strategic update related to the Ondundu Gold Project, and the Company's majority ownership position in SilverReef Resources, in the coming weeks.

Highlights from the Phase One Exploration Program at the Ondundu Gold Project are presented in a table 1, on page 2. Portions of these results have been previously disclosed.

About the Ondundu Gold Project

The Ondundu Gold Project is located on a 19,969 hectare contiguous license in the Damara Belt of West-Central Namibia, approximately 250km from the Capital of Windhoek. Gold mineralization at Ondundu occurs in bedding-conformable quartz veins and in wall rocks adjacent to the veins. The OMZ Zone is located within the sheared common limb of an anticline and syncline, with mineralization extending along a strike length of 2.7km, with widths up to 400m and depths to 250m.
