Drill Rig Mobilized for Resource Expansion and Exploration Drilling

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - REBgold Corporation ("REBgold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RBG) is pleased to announce that a drill rig has been mobilized to the Osikonmaki Property at its JV in Finland. Drilling will commence in early January 2012.

At least 2000 meters of core drilling is planned for the first phase of the 2012 drill program. As the results come in from the first phase, the second phase of drilling will be planned. Drilling will target along strike and down dip extensions of the Osikonmaki East mineralization, including the high grade shallow mineralization discovered in the 2011 drilling campaign. Depending on results, additional targets along the 3km long structure could also be tested. These targets include the historic resource at Osikonmaki West and a number of geophysical and geochemical anomalies.

Other work planned for the next few months include metallurgical test work and assaying of historic holes.

Mark Burridge, Chairman, comments, "We are excited at the prospect of expanding the resource base and discovering additional mineralization at our projects in Finland."
