Serengeti Announces Start of Drill Program at Kwanika, Sampling Results from Valleau Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2012) - Serengeti Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SIR)(FRANKFURT:34S) reports that it has initiated a follow-up drill program at Kwanika testing several targets in the vicinity of the Central copper-gold Zone as well as a high priority geophysical target located 15 kilometers to the south on the Kwanika property. Results from a geochemical survey completed earlier in the summer on the Valleau property which outlined a 1600m long, high contrast gold-copper soil anomaly are also reported.

At Kwanika, drilling has recently started on a 1500 meter, 4 to 5 hole program. Specific targets include: one hole testing a strong induced polarization (IP) chargeability anomaly identified on two widely separated lines with adjacent copper-gold soil anomalism, located 15 kilometers south of the principal deposit area; two holes testing a gap in the drilling north of the Central Zone where prior holes have intersected good grade mineralization but where widely spaced drill density has limited the resource estimate; and one to two holes testing a newly reinterpreted IP geophysical anomaly that extends up to 800 meters north of the current Central Zone resource area.

On the Valleau property, located 20 kilometers east of Kwanika, soil sampling has extended a high contrast gold and copper anomaly to over 1600 meters in length by up to 800 meters in width. The strongest part of this anomaly lies in an overburden covered area east of a partially delineated open-ended IP anomaly where prior trenches have returned up to 1.0 g/t Au over 10 meters. This is an attractive target that could rapidly be upgraded to drill target status with limited additional IP geophysics.
