Kaminak Drills New Gold Discoveries at Supremo: At Least Five Gold-Bearing Structures Are Open Along Trend and at Depth

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2010) - Kaminak Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KAM) is pleased to report assays from exploration drilling from the Supremo trend, located on the Company's 100% owned Coffee property, located in the newly-recognized White Gold District, Yukon Territory. The Supremo trend is one of three significant gold discoveries made to date by Kaminak in 2010 on the Coffee property. The other two discoveries are the Latte and Double Double trends which are located approximately 1.5km south and southeast of the Supremo trend, respectively.

Drilling earlier this season by Kaminak at Supremo focused entirely on testing the north-south trending "T3" structural zone where results include 17.1 g/t Au over 15.5m; 3.26 g/t Au over 17.35m and 21.3 g/t Au over 8m (see Kaminak news releases dated May 26 2010, June 10 2010 and August 5 2010). The T3 trend has been traced for at least 550m along strike and remains open. Field work at Supremo by Kaminak in 2010 successfully identified several new structural zones parallel to the high-grade T3 structure (T2, T4, T6, and T7) all occurring within a 600m wide envelope with individual structures ranging from 5-50m wide each. Gold-in-soil data and ground geophysical surveys suggest these new structures are traceable for several hundred meters along trend. This release provides results from the first ever holes drilled on these newly defined structural trends.

"Gold mineralization at Supremo consists of several steeply-dipping and stacked structures which are all open along trend and at depth," stated Rob Carpenter, Kaminak's President and CEO. "These results significantly increase the potential for Supremo to host high-grade and bulk tonnage gold deposits.

Key Results

T2 Structure - 3.73 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) over 16m starting at 92m core depth and a lower intercept of 7.07 g/t Au over 2m starting at 178m core depth (both from hole CFD-29)

T6 Structure - 2.11 g/t Au over 14m starting at 4m core depth and a lower intercept of 2.38 g/t Au over 19m starting from 33m core depth (both intercepts from hole CFD-34)

T7 Structure – Two holes collared in alteration and mineralization with hole CFD-26 yielding 4.65 g/t Au over 4m starting at 8m core depth
