Handeni Gold Inc.: Gold Anomalies Confirmed on Mjembe Target

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 23, 2013) - Handeni Gold Inc. (the "Company" or "Handeni Gold") (OTCQB:HNDI) is pleased to provide an update on the exploration activities conducted on its exploration licenses in the United Republic of Tanzania.

This news release is an update on the results of the soil sampling program and ground magnetic survey conducted on the Mjembe target as reported in a news release published on 16 July 2013. A total of 232 samples were selected from a database of 5068 soil samples collected on the 23km2 area comprising the Mjember target. The independent laboratory results confirmed the effectiveness of the soil sample selection method based on XRF analyses as 57% of the samples assayed returned anomalous gold values. The Company will thus continue to use this cost effective method of exploration applicable to its Handeni licenses.

The latest results outlined two highly anomalous areas defined by geochemistry (Au), airborne TEM geophysics and ground geophysics) on the 23km2 Mjembe target. The Company will now conduct a detailed mapping, pitting and trenching program on these areas in preparation for possible further ground geophysics and drill target generation. The Company is also continuing exploration on its other targets.
