Taku Samples 6.17g/t Au Over 5.0m in Trench at Rosebute Project in White Gold Area of Yukon

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2012) - Taku Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAK) is pleased to announce results of a recently completed trenching program in the western part of the 544-claim (11,260-hectare) Rosebute project located approximately 55 kilometres due south of Dawson City, Yukon. A map of the trenching results can be viewed by clicking http://bit.ly/RDZUvz. The property was acquired in March 2010 from well-known Yukon prospector Shawn Ryan.

A total of 1,341 metres (m) of trenching was done in seven trenches to test the southern end of the Hudbay zone where strongly anomalous gold values up to a maximum value of 0.90 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) were obtained earlier this year from an area 500m long by 350m wide (Taku Press Release - August 28, 2012). Broken bedrock in the trenches was sampled systematically at five metre sampling intervals and a number of parallel, north-trending gold zones were identified. Highlights of the sampling include 6.17g/t Au over 5m from 35.0m in Trench 12-02 and 1.50g/t Au over 20.0m from 130.0m in Trench 12-04. The trenching results are summarized as follows:

Trench From (m) Length (m) Wt. Avg. g/t Au Max. g/t Au

210.0 36.0 0.18 0.55

"The trenching results validate the strong soil geochemical results and confirm the presence of a gold-bearing structure at Hudbay that merits further exploration," comments Zak Dingsdale, President and CEO of the Company.

All analytical results referred to in this release were determined by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Vancouver. Acme is accredited under ISO 9001. Trench rock core samples were prepared by crushing one kilogram to 80 per cent passing minus 10 mesh and then pulverizing a 250-gram subsample to 85 per cent passing minus 200 mesh. Each subsample was analyzed for gold by 30-gram fire assay, ICP-ES finish. Taku follows an independently designed and monitored quality assurance/quality control program involving the insertion of standards, blanks and duplicates into the sampling stream.
