Kilo's 960m Step-out Drill Hole Intersects 11.45m grading 3.33g/t Gold on the Adumbi Prospect, Somituri Project, DRC

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Oct. 21, 2010) - Kilo Goldmines Ltd. ("Kilo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) is pleased to announce analytical results of diamond drill hole number 6 on the Company's Adumbi Prospect of the Somituri Project in north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC").

Somituri - Adumbi Prospect

Diamond drill-hole SADD0006 was collared 960 metres southeast of the previously reported (see July 11, 2010 press release) diamond drill-hole SADD0001. Drill-hole SADD0006 targeted the mapped southeast strike extension of the former gold producing colonial era Adumbi mine; the gold intersection is summarized below and illustrated on Figure 1 (

Drill Hole SADD0006 Azimuth 40 degrees Length 303.55 metres
  From (m) To (m) Interval (m) Gold g/t
  86.25 97.70 11.45 3.33
includes 87.20 92.70 5.50 4.20
and 94.70 97.30 2.60 4.02

The gold is hosted within a chemical metasedimentary unit consisting of chert with later stage quartz veins and pyrite mineralization. The chemical metasedimentary rocks are hosted within metasedimentary shale and greywacke as well as tuffaceous metasedimentary rocks. The names of lithological units are based on field interpretations unverified with petrographic studies.

The gold intersection in diamond drill hole SADD0006 is very significant as it extends the gold mineralization nearly 1,000 metres along the mapped southeast strike extension of the gold bearing Adumbi prospect structure. Geological mapping indicates lithological and structural continuity along this southeast extension. Additional drilling is planned to confirm continuity of the gold mineralization.

The Company's Executive Chairman, Peter Hooper, stated "This very significant intersection demonstrates the gold mineralization remains open to the southeast. Moreover, geological mapping and our interpretation confirms the interval in this hole is contiguous with the area of historical exploitation and the gold bearing structure now extends over a strike length exceeding 2 km."

Diamond drill hole SADD0006 was collared 960 metres southeast of drill hole SADD0001 on a magnetic azimuth of 040 degrees and at an inclination of -50 degrees and completed to a depth of 303.55 metres. The true thickness of the gold bearing interval is estimated at approximately 75 percent of the drill hole intersection interval. A 0.63 g/t gold cut-off was used to calculate the intersection; internal dilution is not present.

About the Somituri Project

Records from the colonial era, unverified by the Company, indicate that during the 1940s until its closure in 1958 the Adumbi gold mine produced about 200,000 ounces of gold from quartz vein ore that averaged 11 g/t gold.

Five drill holes have been completed on the past producing Kitenge gold mine and three holes have been completed on the former Manzako gold mine. According to historical records, unverified by the Company, the Kitenge and Manzako mines produced about 100,000 ounces of gold prior to about 1942. In addition, one drill hole has been completed on a separate target and trenching and deep soil sampling is being carried out.

Diamond drilling is in progress with two rigs and the Company intends to complete sufficient exploration prior to year-end 2010 for a party independent of the Company to prepare an NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource calculation.

QC and Analytical Procedures

Quality control of analytical results is monitored by the company with the insertion of commercial standards and blanks in every batch of samples submitted for analysis. For additional details the reader is referred to Kilo's previously announced (see May 4, 2010 press release) quality control and analytical procedures.
