Ethos Gold Corp. ("Ethos" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ECC) is pleased to announce that Craig Roberts, P.Eng. has agreed to join the Board of Directors of the Company and to accept an appointment as Vice President of Corporate Development. Mr. Roberts' appointment will be made effective upon the closing of the proposed financing as outlined below.

His career has focused on mineral exploration and project development. In 2008 he received the Spud Huestis award for having made "a significant contribution to enhance the mineral resources of British Columbia and the Yukon". Mr. Robins is the cofounder of Hunter Exploration, Stornaway Diamond Corporation, Kivalliq Energy Corporation, North Country Gold Corp. and Kaminak Gold Corporation. Mr. Robins was also involved in the successful sale/merger of several pubic companies including Grayd Resources Corporation (Agnico Eagle), Troon Resources (Grenville Strategic Royalty), Arauco Minerals (Kinross), Creston Moly Corporation (Mercator) and Northair Silver (Kootenay Silver).

Gary Freeman, President and CEO, stated, "Mr. Roberts' and Mr. Robins' broad range of experience in acquiring, financing and developing resource projects will greatly assist in accelerating the Company's efforts to create long term shareholder value by reviewing and securing a high quality mineral asset."

The Company also announces that it proposes to undertake a non-brokered private placement of up to 3,847,058 units ("Units") at a price of $0.17 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $654,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant exercisable for a term of two (2) years (the "Warrants"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of Ethos at an exercise price of $0.30 per common share during the term of the Warrants.
