Suparna Gold Commences Diamond Drilling at Sara Creek Concession

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2012) - Suparna Gold Corp. ("Suparna" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SUG) is pleased to announce that a 5,000 metre diamond drilling program, to be completed by Surecore Portable Diamond Drilling Ltd., has commenced on Suparna's Sara Creek Property located in east central Suriname, South America. Drilling activities are expected to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure a continuous operation.

The first eleven holes, planned for the Gran Creek target area within the central part of the Sara Creek Property, have been delineated to investigate a lithological contact zone (mafic and felsic units) associated with an implied shear zone. The shear zone is associated with two sets of vein systems (shear and tension veins) within the mafic unit, both of which may be auriferous. Initial investigations on drillcore show that the first hole, GRA-001 (end of hole at 214 m) has intersected surface clay and saprolite as well as underlying felsic and metavolcanic units, both of which contain sulphide rich (pyrite and chalcopyrite) sections associated with quartz veins.

Assay procedure

The Company uses both Filab Suriname and the Assay Office in Suriname for sample preparation and fire assays and periodically inserts blanks with sample submissions in conjunction with the Company's QA/QC procedures. In addition, the Company will be sending a percentage of prepared samples to SGS Peru (ISO certified) for additional QA/QC measurements.
