Choice Gold Corp. Prepares for Phase 1B Drilling at Sugarloaf Peak

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2012) - Choice Gold Corp. (CNSX:CHF)(MUN:OCG) ("Choice Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement for phase 1B of the drilling work to be completed at its Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project in southwestern Arizona. The reverse circulation drilling will be performed by Brown Drilling, an Arizona based contractor that has strong experience in the district and performed the previous phase of drilling work on the property. The drilling is expected to commence by mid-February.

The phase 1B drilling program will consist of approximately 15 RC holes of up to 100 metres in depth. Most of phase 1B is a follow up to the 2,012 metres of diamond drilling that was completed as phase 1A in 2011. All the holes drilled in 2011 returned anomalous values of gold over the first 100 metres and tested only a small portion of the broad altered and mineralized area defined by the mapping and sampling program at the surface. The goal of the present campaign will be to discover intervals of economical grades, confirm the controls for the mineralization, define the main gold mineralogical assemblage, and start defining a resource. Particular attention will be given to find the extension of the mineralization intersected in hole SGL-11-04 which returned 1.76 g/t Au over 9.91 meters (as per press release of October 6, 2011). The program will also verify some of the best reported grades intersected in historical holes in addition to testing other gold mineralized areas over the property. Choice Gold will continue this investigative work to advance the property towards a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource.
