Consolidated's Cahuilla Project Continues to Expand With Assay Results Including 1.5m of 484.6 g/t Silver Within 25.9m of 123.0 g/t Silver

RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2012) - Consolidated Goldfields Corp. ("Consolidated" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS:CDGF) is pleased to announce drill program assay results from its Cahuilla gold-silver project in Imperial County, California. Drilling continued along the margins of the known precious metal mineralization and has again significantly expanded gold-silver mineralization into untested areas. Exploration drilling was also initiated in areas where little to no drill data exists to search for new mineralization where drilling can be focused in the future to further enhance existing precious metal mineralization.

The Company is pleased to report the following drill results:

*CAH holes intersected silver values of greater than 100 grams (2.92 oz/t) in one or more 1.5m sample intervals.

**CAH-263 intersected 25.9m of 123.0 grams silver (3.59 oz/t) from 102.1 to 128.0m with a high of 484.6 (14.15 oz/t) over 1.5m from 102.1 to 103.6m.

As reported in our previous news releases, assays continue to be very favorable and demonstrate the existence of many high grade gold/silver veins which are commonly associated with moderate to lower grade, broadly mineralized zones. These high grade precious metal assay results are being encountered throughout all areas presently being drill tested at the Cahuilla project. This is exemplified in CAH-217 and 218 by the high grade gold veins that were intersected and in CAH-260 through 264, and especially CAH-263, where high grade silver has been encountered in numerous sample intervals.

Assaying of the reverse circulation samples was conducted by Inspectorate Laboratory in Reno, Nevada. Drill samples were collected by Mr. Paul Stubble (project geologist), split on site, placed in sample bags and delivered to Inspectorate Laboratory in Reno, Nevada for analysis. In addition, blanks and certified standards have been inserted into the sample stream at random intervals for quality control purposes.

The Cahuilla Project is a large epithermal, paleo-hot springs system hosting multiple high grade veins that occur within an extensive body of disseminated gold-silver mineralization. For further information on the Cahuilla project refer to the NI 43-101 technical report entitled "Cahuilla Property 43-101 Technical Report," dated October 25, 2007 prepared by Todd Wakefield, MAusIMM of AMEC E&C Services filed on Sedar on November 15, 2007.
