SnipGold Extends Iskut Drill Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2012) - SnipGold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SGG) ("SnipGold" or the "Company") (formerly Skyline Gold Corporation) is pleased to provide shareholders with an update on the current diamond drill program underway at the Company's Iskut Property in northwestern British Columbia.

As of August 02, 2012, total of 1517meters of drilling in six holes, SG12-22 to SG12-27, have been completed. Phase-1 of the drill program is designed to complete initial drill tests of a small set of electro-magnetic ("EM") conductors located in the southwestern part of the Property. The program objectives include determining the character of the structural controls and style of any mineralization associated with the EM conductors.

Four holes have been completed along the Burnie Trend. One hole at the C-1 area and the first hole at Johnny Flats have also been completed. Please refer to attached map for 2012 drill hole locations.

The program is proceeding below the projected cost, allowing for the drill contract to be extended and holes at Gorge and along the Snip-Bronson Trend have been added to the program. The drill is currently at Gorge and is then scheduled to move to the Snip-Bronson Trend and then to Johnny Flats.

The initial assay data is anticipated to be available for public release within two weeks.

In addition to adding metres to the program, the cost effective execution of the 2012 exploration will allow for Borehole Pulse Electromagnetic ("BPEM") surveys to be carried out on the Property. A BPEM survey crew has been mobilized to the Property and is expected to complete surveys in both 2012 drill holes, as well as, key historical holes.
