Renaissance Gold Reports Start of Drilling Woodhills South

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Renaissance Gold Reports Start of Drilling Woodhills South12:05 EST Thursday, February 14, 2013 WHITE ROCK, British Columbia (Business Wire) -- Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX: REN) (“RenGold”) is pleased to announce the start of drilling at Wood Hills South. This project is believed to be the SW extension of the Pequop Gold District as defined by geologic and geophysical reconstruction. Importantly this round of drilling will test the microgravity survey low near drill hole WHS11-007 that returned a 10.7 m (35 feet) of 0.40 g/t (0.013 opt Au) gold within a 60 m (197 feet) interval of anomalous gold and Carlin-type trace elements (Press Release February 6, 2012). Reverse circulation drilling is being done by Envirotech and is to include 5-6 holes of about 300 m (984 feet) each, to focus on this anomaly. The operator is NuLegacy Gold Corp. (NUG:TSXV) and the project is being over seen by Dr. Roger Steininger. Richard Bedell President & CEO comments: “We are very excited about the possibility of these holes. What led to the successful drilling at Long Canyon was recognizing that mineralization occurred in between the dense dolomite blocks. This microgravity low could be a proxy for such a target. Nonetheless the importance of drill hole WHS11-007 cannot be underscored. We expect to see this project grow.” Qualified Person All technical data disclosed in this press release, including sampling, analytical and test data have been reviewed by the Company's qualified person Mr. Eric M. Struhsacker, M.Sc., and Certified Professional Geologist as recognized by the American Institute of Professional Geologists. Renaissance Gold Inc.
