AREQUIPA, PERU--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - Gold Horizons Mining Co. Ltd (G.H.M / the Company) (FRANKFURT: GKW) is pleased to report their joint venture partner, Atlantis Gold SAC, has found a vertical shaft in the Blanca vein at the Gloria Mine. The shaft was immediately opened up and investigated. It is approximately 40 meters deep by 3 meters wide. Several mineral samples were taken and submitted to the lab for further analysis. Preliminary lab results of the mineral appear to be positive. Our first sample, collected at the bottom of the shaft, reported 23.17 grams per ton (see below). Assaying for the Gloria property was carried out by Laboratorios Analiticos del Sur, located in Arequipa, Peru.

Atlantis Gold SAC is currently working with a mining engineer consultant and has been advised to start excavating to at least 50 meters in depth; the belief being the mineral will get richer as you go down in elevation. Mining and exploration activities are currently being performed near the surface, in the superficial part of the vein. Assuming assays taken from the Blanca shaft continue to report above 15 grams per ton, mining and exploration activities will shift to these lower elevations.
