WestKam to Begin 2015 Drill Exploration at Bonaparte Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 5, 2015) - WestKam Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WKG) ("WestKam" or the "Company") reported today that exploration teams and equipment are preparing to mobilize to its Bonaparte Project for the commencement of the 2015 Exploration Drilling Program.

The company plans to test a number of prospective targets where anomalous gold and copper soil geochemistry and coincident IP chargeability and resistivity anomalies have been delineated. The targets include the down-dip and southern extensions of the high-grade gold mineralization in quartz veins encountered in the Discovery Zone. In addition, several parallel zones of anomalous geochemistry and geophysics are to be tested for Discovery Zone style mineralization, as well as for evidence of copper-gold porphyry system processes.

All appropriate permits are in place for the 2015 Drilling Program, and recent clear cut logging on the property has afforded WestKam excellent access logistics, supporting an efficient program.

WestKam is also pleased to announce it has renewed its relationship with Stk'emlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation ("SSN"). A renewal agreement includes a framework for WestKam's continued activities on SSN's traditional territory, including the carrying out of a cultural heritage study.

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed by R. Kemp, P. Geo., a qualified person as that term is defined in NI 43-101.
