TomaGold Hits 26.9 g/t Gold Over 1.5 Metres at Monster Lake07:00 EDT Thursday, October 25, 2012MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2012) -TomaGold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:LOT) ("TomaGold" or the "Company") is pleased to report additional results from Phase 1 of its 10,000-metre drilling program at its Monster Lake gold property near Chibougamau, Quebec. Two of the three holes shown below were drilled down-dip from Hole M-12-60, which recently intersected 237.6 g/t gold over 5.7 metres. Technical difficulties prevented Holes M-12-72-b and c from reaching the depth of the M-12-60 intersection. However, these holes confirmed new, high-grade gold zones near surface.Annie ZoneHoleFrom (m)To (m)Length (m)g/t AuM-12-72b (down-dip)33.00 42.0034.50 46.501.50 4.5010.8 2.3M-12-72c (down-dip)33.75 40.5035.25 42.751.50 2.2526.9 12.6M-12-85172.50174.001.504.0David Grondin, President and CEO of TomaGold, said that: "These are very positive results, as they help confirm the extension of the high-grade mineralized zone intersected by Hole M-12-60.
