Reliant Announces Commencement of Drilling at its Borden Lake South Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 16, 2012) - Reliant Gold Corp. ("Reliant" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:REC) is pleased to announce that Probe Mines Limited ("Probe") (TSX VENTURE:PRB) has commenced exploration on the Company's 100%-owned Borden Lake South Property (the "Property"), for which Probe has entered into an option agreement to acquire up to a 70% interest. The exploration program entails the diamond drill testing of favorable coincident ground IP and magnetic targets located in the north east part of the Property. The Property is comprised of 20 mining claims representing 294 claim units covering approximately 4,704 hectares and is located 10 kilometres east of the town of Chapleau in Northeastern Ontario and two kilometres south of Probe's Borden Lake gold discovery.

The exploration program will comprise approximately 1,500 metres of drilling and test up to 10 priority targets identified from the geophysical survey. The program represents the first drilling ever to be undertaken on this Property. The drill targets were selected from a larger group of anomalies, based on character and strength, and will test a significant section of the stratigraphy to the south of Probe's Borden Lake gold discovery. Surface prospecting suggests that the Property shares many geological similarities to the area hosting Probe's Borden Lake gold zone, and therefore has potential to host similar gold mineralization. Results from the current program will be used to develop further exploration programs on the Property.

Dr. Trevor Boyd, Ph.D., P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument NI 43-101 ("NI 43-101") and Vice-President of Exploration for Reliant, has reviewed the technical information contained in this press release in compliance with NI 43-101.
