Freegold Reports Results from Resource Expansion Drilling Golden Summit Project, Alaska13:09 EST Thursday, November 15, 2012VANCOUVER, Nov. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL, Frankfurt: FR4N) ("Freegold") is pleased to report results from last two holes of the Dolphin/Cleary drill programs. Results from these holes were not incorporated into the recently released NI 43-101 resource calculation as they were designed to test the potential for expansion to the north of the current resource. These holes are situated 120 metres to the north of the previous drilling. Results confirm that the resource continues to remain open to the north for further expansion. Additional drilling is planned to expand upon the current NI 43-101 resource which using a 0.30 g/t cutoff, is 73,580,000 tonnes @ 0.67 g/t Au - represents 1,576,000 ounces in the indicated category and 223,300,000 tonnes @ 0.62 g/t Au - and represents 4,437,000 ounces in the inferred category.   The resource estimate was completed by Giroux Consultants LtdHole NumberHole InclinationDepth of Hole (ft)From (ft)To (ft)Interval (ft)Interval (m)Aug/tUncutAu g/tDolphin Area        GSDL1225-554189127718656.70.47    384.540419.55.92.05          GSDL1226-55 70075120.545.513.90.75    148171237.01.69    243307.564.519.71.913.37   339.53422.50.89.3    45545941.237.637.6   57270012839.00.46 Width refers to drill hole intercepts, true widths can not be determined due to uncertain geometry of mineralization.  Values greater than 30 g/t Au were cut to 30 g/t Au.Drilling at Golden Summit is expected to recommence in January with two rigs.
