Kaminak Commences Exploration Program on the "TBN" Platinum-Palladium Property, Thunder Bay Area, NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) - Kaminak Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KAM) today announced it has initiated the 2009 exploration program on its 100% owned "TBN" Platinum-Palladium project located approximately 50 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, Ontario. This newly staked property adjoins the northern margin of Magma Metals Limited Current Lake property, where high-grade mineralization has been discovered in diamond drilling (see Magma Metals news release dated April 8th, 2009).

Kaminak has contracted Aeroquest Ltd. to complete a 1,470 line-km high-definition AeroTEM 2 electromagnetic and magnetic helicopter-borne survey over Kaminak's TBN claim block. This survey is now underway and is designed to delineate any ultramafic rocks which could host potential mineralization. The survey is being flown under fly-to-drill specifications, where dense 50m spaced lines and low-level instrument heights (a 30m EM bird height and two magnetometers situated at 31m and 47m above ground level) will help accelerate the project directly to the drilling stage. Final survey products are expected within 6 weeks of completion of the survey.

Staking of the TBN property resulted from an extensive in-house geological compilation of the Pt-Pd potential in the Thunder Bay region by Kaminak and Geovector Management Inc. Detailed structural analyses and data from regional geophysical surveys suggests the emplacement of the host ultramafic intrusion at Current Lake is controlled by intersecting East-West trending structures and North-South trending structures. Kaminak's TBN property is interpreted to have similar trending structural intersects and Kaminak believes the property has potential to host ultramafic intrusive rocks.

Kaminak's disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Rob Carpenter, Ph.D., P.Geo., Kaminak's President and CEO, who serves as a Qualified Person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101.
