TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2011) - Kilo Goldmines Ltd. ("Kilo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) is pleased to announce results from diamond drill holes no. 20 and 22 on section 19755E and diamond drill holes no. 25 and 27 on section 19595E of the Company's Adumbi Prospect, Somituri Project in north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC").

Somituri - Adumbi Prospect Drilling

Diamond drill-holes SADD0020 and SADD0022 were collared on drill section 19755E and drill holes SADD0025 and SADD0027 were collared on drill section 19595E, to explore the horizontal and vertical continuity of gold mineralization intersected in the drill holes collared on sections 19835E and 19680E (see Nov. 23rd 2010, Jan. 5th 2011, Feb. 1st 2011 and Jun. 2nd 2010 press releases). The gold intersections are summarized by section, from east to west, below. The drill holes collared on section 19755E are illustrated in Figure 1 and the drill holes collared on section 19595E are illustrated on Figure 2.

Intersected by diamond drill holes SADD0020, SADD0022, SADD0025 and SADD0027 is the sub-vertical chemical metasedimentary rocks predominantly characterized by intervals of chert, chert banded with haematite iron formation (BIF), as well as minor intervals of chert banded with black shale and several narrow intervals of black shale; quartz veins occur throughout the chemical metasedimentary rocks. Quartz veining is characterized by several dominant veins with widths in excess of several metres oriented parallel or sub-parallel to the regional strike of the lithologies; one of these referenced as the 'Main Vein' occurs in close proximity to the contact with the footwall tuffaceous metasediments and greywacke and it was the subject of exploitation by colonial-era mining over a strike length of nearly 2 kilometres.

Peter Hooper, Executive Chairman of Kilo stated, "The intersections of gold bearing mineralization in all of the drill holes collared on each of these section lines is very encouraging as horizontal and vertical continuity of the gold zone is being confirmed."

Drill holes SADD0020, SADD0022, SADD0025 and SADD0027 were drilled on a magnetic azimuth of 220 degrees at an inclination of -50 degrees to depths of 109.80m, 295.70m, 126.30m and 270.70m, respectively. Drill hole SADD0020 terminated prior to reaching the footwall rocks due to technical difficulties. It is estimated that the true widths of the mineralized intervals in all of these drill holes are approximately 75 percent of the intersected widths in the drill holes.

About the Somituri Project

The Company completed 31 diamond drill holes, including 6 abandoned drill holes, for a total of 6,610.78 metres in 2010 exploring a 2.04 kilometre strike length of the Adumbi Prospect. Records from the colonial era, unverified by the Company, indicate that during the 1940s until its closure in 1958 the combined production from the Adumbi and Bagbaie mines totaled about 200,000 ounces of gold; the Adumbi gold was hosted in quartz vein ore that averaged 11 g/t gold.

In addition, five drill holes have been completed on the past producing Kitenge gold mine, three holes have been completed on the former Manzako gold mine and one drill hole has been completed on the Monde Arabe target, which may be the northwest strike extension of the Kitenge gold bearing structure. 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, trenching and deep soil sampling is being carried out.

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.
