Brigadier Gold Limited 'TSX-V BRG'-Reports Significant Gold Assay Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 25, 2005) - Brigadier Gold Limited (TSX VENTURE:BRG) is pleased to report that significant gold assay values have been returned for the M-Island Property located in the Kirkland Lake - Larder Lake gold area, Ontario. These results confirm that the trenches blasted and sampled in the 1930's do contain significant concentrations of gold. Excluding the visible gold samples for which no assays were done, the best value is 8.98 grams gold per tonne over an interval of 1.2 metres (0.26 ounces gold per ton over 3.9 feet) and the best interval is 5.0 grams gold per tonne weighted over 2.88 metres (0.15 ounces gold per ton over 9.45 feet).

A total of 66 samples were sent to Laboratoire Expert Inc., Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec for gold fire assay -gravimetric analysis: 61 portable rock diamond saw cut channel samples, four saw cut panels and one grab sample. The majority of the samples are of a sheared and altered, pyrite-bearing, beige to pink, medium-grained syenite porphyry containing white to slightly smoky quartz veining.

Trench "B", in which we found visible gold, was channel sampled over a length of 11.42 metres recovering 22 channel and 4 panel samples. The panels were cut as 0.5 by 0.5 metre squares adjoining each other to form a one metre square. Trench "B" channel samples returned values of 1.65 grams gold per tonne weighted over an interval of 8.74 metres (0.05 ounces gold per ton over 28.7 feet) which included 5.14 grams gold per tonne weighted over 1.15 metres (0.15 ounces gold per ton over 3.8 feet). The panel assay results are: 2.41 grams gold per tonne (0.07 ounces per ton), 1.183 grams gold per tonne (0.035 ounces per ton), 1.54 grams gold per tonne (0.05 ounces per ton) and 1.44 grams gold per ton (0.04 ounces gold per ton).

Trench "C", was channel sampled both over a length of 29.05 metres and an additional separate interval of 2.0 metres, recovering 36 channel samples. One area of the trench has a weighted value of 4.16 grams gold per tonne over an interval of 3.68 metres (0.12 ounces gold per ton over 12.07 feet) includes a high value of 8.98 grams gold per tonne over an interval of 1.2 metres (0.26 ounces gold per ton over 3.9 feet). Two other separate areas of Trench "B" returned weighted values of 0.62 grams gold per tonne over an interval of 8.67 metres (0.02 ounces gold per ton over 28.44 feet) and 2.14 grams gold per tonne over an interval of 1.75 metres (0.06 ounces gold over 5.74 feet).

The results indicate a potential exists for the discovery of an economic gold deposit in the M-Island Project area. Allan J. Willy, P.Eng, Geologist and Qualified Person, is recommending a diamond drilling program and Brigadier Gold Limited has begun taking steps towards initiating this program.
