Kalimantan Gold Completes C$1.1 Million Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2008) - Kalimantan Gold Corporation Limited (TSX VENTURE:KLG)(AIM:KLG) (the "Company") has raised $1.1 million from a non-brokered private placement financing involving the sale of 11,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.10 per share. The common shares issued are restricted from trading through the TSX Venture Exchange until October 14, 2008.

Significant new investors in KLG include Macquarie Bank Limited, a member of the Sydney-based Macquarie Group, which has purchased 3,000,000 common shares for $300,000. The bank, which is already active in Indonesia, has agreed to work with KLG to devise strategies to evaluate debt financing and hedging alternatives for any of its coal or gold projects. In return, Macquarie will be invited to offer its services to arrange and provide such debt financing or hedging to the Company.

The Company is also pleased to welcome Passport Capital, LLC as a shareholder following its purchase of 5,000,000 common shares for $500,000. The San Francisco-based global investment firm has a particular focus on mining and energy with an emphasis on emerging players in these markets.

With the remaining $300,000 of the placement taken up by several investors in the United Kingdom, CEO Rahman Connelly said he was very pleased both with the outcome of the placement and with the quality of new investors. "It's a very good result in a challenging market place and the placement was significantly oversubscribed. Energy and in particular coal projects are currently attracting considerable interest around the world and we look forward to working with investors such as Macquarie and Passport as we progress our portfolio of coal projects."

The money will be used to fund the Company's ongoing gold and coal exploration programs in Indonesia, as well as for general working capital purposes.
