Birim Goldfields Inc.: Kuri Gold Anomaly Extended by a
Further 1,000 Meters

MONTREAL, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 24, 2005) - Birim Goldfields Inc.
(TSX:BGI) ("Birim" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that a
further 1,000 meter extension to the Company's Kuri gold anomaly has
been defined by soil sampling. The Kuri gold anomaly is situated on the
Kuri Prospecting Licence, which is currently being converted from the
Bui Reconnaissance Licence to enable drilling activities to commence.

As referenced in the Company's new release dated January 20, 2005, a
newly developing node of galamsey activity (1,400 meters northeast of
the Kuri anomaly) prompted the expansion of the sampling grid since it
was expected to have strike continuity with the Kuri gold-in-soil trend.
Within this distance, a 1,000 meter extension to the main anomaly has
been defined bringing the total length of the target to 6,000 metres.

Approximately 265 soil samples were collected from a 200 meter by 50
meter soil grid that was specifically planned to investigate the
proposed continuity of the Kuri gold anomaly to the new galamsey
workings. The extension to the Kuri anomaly is defined by soil results
greater than 50 ppb gold (see attached map) and the maximum value
reported was 2,540 ppb gold.

The soil sampling was supervised and completed by internationally
recognized exploration consultants RSG Global Pty Ltd. Richard Hyde
(BSc, MAIG), Manager for RSG Global in West Africa and a Qualified
Person under National Instrument 43-101, supervised and directed all
work associated with the soil sampling program.

Soil samples were submitted to SGS (Ghana) Laboratories for aqua regia
digestion and gold analysis by atomic absorption. Appropriate quality
control samples (duplicates, standards and blanks) were inserted into
the sampling sequence.

In addition to lithological and structural mapping on the Kuri anomaly,
a drill program in excess of 10,000 meters is being planned to
investigate the weathered zone of a portion of the Kuri anomaly.

Birim Goldfields Inc. is a royalty-based exploration company and trades
on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol BGI.
