Cabia Goldhills Inc. Announces the Acquisition of the Mejia Mines

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2012) - Cabia Goldhills Inc. ("Cabia") (TSX VENTURE:CGH) is pleased to announce that it has entered into binding agreements to acquire four artisanal mines which are adjacent to its 100% owned Mejia Project, in the San Lucas gold belt of the Bolivar Department, Colombia.

The Mejia Project is located within the under explored San Lucas gold district where intense artisanal mining is present, including four artisanal mines adjacent to the Mejia Project, namely La Gloria Mine, El Fogaje Mine, Los Romanes Mine and El Turco Mine (the "Mejía Mines").

The La Gloria Mine is exploiting an underground mine exploiting one of the main veins in the area. Reconnaissance work done by Cabia suggest the presence of a base metal-carbonate type auriferous system with gold mineralization characterized by the presence of massive sulphide mineralization containing sphalerite, galena, pyrite, minor chalcopyrite and quartz. This high-grade vein was sampled by Cabia and returned grades as high as 171.5 g/t Au. El Fogaje, Los Romanes and El Turco are exploiting additional high grade veins with similar geology. Samples taken by Pierre O'Dowd, returned grades as high as 155.5g/t Au, as reported in Cabia's NI-43-101 report on the Mejia Project available on the company's SEDAR profile at

Pursuant to the agreements, Cabia will realize the exploration of the mineralized zones for a period of two years, renewable at the option of Cabia. Upon the registration of the final transfer of title to the properties and the completion of a NI 43-101 compliant report, Cabia will pay to the owners an amount of US$10 for each ounce of reserves encountered on the property. In addition, Cabia will pay a royalty corresponding to 15 % of the net profits and will reimburse the owners for the cost of their equipment and capital assets. Cabia can return the properties to the current owners at all times and without further obligations if it does not discover sufficient reserves which can be exploited economically.

"We are please to have concluded these agreements which will enable Cabia to expand significantly the advancement and development of our Mejia Project." states Michel Delisle, President and CEO of CABIA Goldhills. "Having access to the workings of these artisanal mines will enable our geological team to gain a better understanding of the area and could enable Cabia to become a precious metal producer earlier than anticipated" he added.
