Simba Gold Corp.: Independent Geological Consultants Visit Miyove Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2012) - Simba Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGD)(FRANKFURT:S7G) is pleased to announce that Beak Consultants GmbH of Germany has visited the Miyove Project in northern Rwanda in conjunction with a report on Rwanda's mineral potential. Beak Consultants GmbH is an independent geological company contracted by the Rwandan Government.

This independent visit is important for the continued development of the Company because the mineral potential of the Miyove Project is supported. The Beak consultants were impressed with the project area's geology, structures and especially the metal grades, and took several samples for assaying so that more detailed information can be presented to the Government of Rwanda in their report. The report will be used as a framework for carrying out geological studies and additional work, aimed to better evaluate the mineral wealth of Rwanda.

Simba completed a comprehensive surface exploration program at the Miyove Gold project in December 2011. The program, consisting of a ground magnetic survey, soil sampling and detailed geological mapping, will provide detailed information on property scale structures which, based on historic information, are known to host gold mineralization. The current program will provide sufficient information for designing a drill program, to commence in the spring of 2012, which will assess the structural continuity of the various known gold zones identified on the property.

About the Miyove Gold Project

The Miyove gold project comprises 2,937 hectares and is located in the northern portion of Rwanda, approximately 65 kilometres from the capital city of Kigali. Infrastructure at the property includes excellent road access, water and commercial power access. The project consists of an exploration licenses issued by the MINITERE, MINIRENA and MINIFOM, in the Republic of Rwanda.

The Miyove gold project comprises three mineralized zones referred to as Karenda, Baradega and Masogwe, all of which lie along a northwest-southeast mineralized trend which extends for six kilometers. Three types of structurally controlled gold mineralization has been identified and includes stringer-vein zones, silicified (quartz) and ferruginous shales, and less frequently, quartz veins with varying amounts of iron oxides and hydroxides (in the weathering crust). The host rocks are commonly shale, and to a lesser extent, sandstones. A fourth type of gold mineralization has been identified on the property and includes alluvial and deluvial placers.

Dr. Armitage is a Director and the Senior Technical Advisor of Simba Gold, and is the Qualified Person, as defined by NI 43-101, for the Miyove Gold project.
