MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 11, 2016) - Maurice Giroux, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stellar AfricaGold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SPX) ("Stellar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Stellar have completed a ground follow up of a previous Airborne Magnetic and Electromagnetic survey that covered all of the Company 100% owned Opawica Project.

This program was aimed to visit and find outcropping areas where electromagnetic and magnetic anomalies were outlined in the previous survey. A Beep Mat, Model BM4+ was used to find mineralized boulders as well as in situ shallow mineralized structures susceptible of representing the source of the anomalies. A total of 44 channel and grab samples were collected in the course of the campaign.

Some very positive results were obtained in channel samples across historical Philibert 1 showing. Six channel using a rock saw were cut across a unit of sheared Gabbro rich quartz veins and veinlets containing tourmaline and 1 to 2 % sulphide.

The following table show the best results obtained:
