CB Gold Inc. Continues to Intercept High Grade Mineralization at The Vetas Gold Project Including 1.43m at 36.41 g/t Au and 1.88m at 7.14 g/t Au and 404.13 g/t Ag

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2012) - CB Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBJ) ("CB Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to provide summary drilling results from its Vetas Gold Project, District of Santander, Colombia ("Vetas Gold Project"), located 10km south of AUX's La Bodega and La Mascota deposits and an update on the project geology.

Real Minera Stockwork Zone Drilling Results:

The Company has now received assays from Platform 16's hole 84, and holes 91, 94, 97, 101 and 104A from Platform 12. The table below shows the significant intercepts of mineralization, and full results can be viewed at the CB Gold website (www.cbgoldinc.com).

These holes were drilled along the north and western boundary of the granodiorite intrusive at the Real Minera Stockwork Zone. The Company is pleased to note that the sheeted vein type mineralization extends to the northern and western extent of the intrusive body. In addition, the drilling also confirms that the fault-fill vein mineralization of the San Bartolo Vein Systems extends into the intrusive boundary. While significant intercepts of mineralization were found (e.g. 6.36m at 2.02 g/t Au, RM-DDH12-094 218.84m to 225.30m), the Company believes this to be the northwest edge of the mineralization seen to the east and south (for example from Platform 17) and represents a thinning of the mineralized structure.

Recent drilling from Platform 20, approximately 180 metres south of Platform 17 and close to the centre of the intrusive body surface expression, has shown significant intercepts of sheeted vein mineralization, with numerous occurrences of visible gold. Assays are pending for the first of these holes and will be released in due course.

The Company is also pleased to note that the intercepts of the fault-fill vein structures around the north-western edge of the intrusive show significantly higher silver grades (up to 438g/t Ag) and represent the extensions of high-grade veins from the north and west. These western extensions are interpreted to be a continuation of the San Bartolo Vein System.

All tables show only those intercepts with grade *thicknesses greater than 3g *m/t. For a complete list of intercepts, tabulated at a cut-off grade of 0.15 g/t, please visit www.cbgoldinc.com. Composite intervals were chosen using a cut-off grade of 0.15 g/t Au, and 1.0 g/t Au for some of the higher grade intervals. Waste intervals were included only if they could be carried above the cut-off grade by the weighted average grades of adjacent samples. This criterion was met in all cases while averaging both up and down the hole to remove undue influence from single high grade intercepts. AuEq in this table and the subsequent tables was calculated using the 12 month trailing average for Au and Ag through March 1, 2011 (US$1268/oz Au and US$22.28/oz Ag). Using ratio of US$Au:US$Ag (56.9), assuming 100% recovery of both metals and no NSR the AuEq formula is: AuEq = Au g/t + (Ag g/t / 56.9).

Eldorado Vein System Drill Results:

New results from the El Dorado vein system (holes 76, 79, 83, 85, 87, 90 and 93) confirm the consistent nature of the structure, as well as the persistence of mineralized zones of the grey silica fault-fill veins. Higher grade intercepts in these holes occur at the depths predicted by the existing 3D model developed in conjunction with SRK, adding further confidence to the predictability of the vein system. In combination with drilling from the Santa Isabel property, the El Dorado vein system has now been drill defined over 1,000 metres and has potential to extend 700 metres to the southwest and 300 metres to the northeast.

Holes drilled from Platform SI 2 (holes 82, 86, 89 and 92) demonstrate a continuation of the El Dorado Vein structures. Holes 86 and 82 are drilled closer to the intersection zone of the El Dorado and San Bartolo vein systems and the Company is pleased to announce that the expected thickening of alteration and mineralization is shown in the intercepts in these two holes, with high grade veins interspaced with thicker, lower grade intervals.

Drilling since the start of 2012:

The Company has drilled 42 holes up to August 16, 2012, totalling 21,300 metres. Results are still pending for 20+ holes that contain comparably encouraging visual indications of mineralization, including intercepts with visible gold at both the Real Minera and El Dorado Zones. The Company expects to announce the drill results as they are received.
