Barisan Gold Discovers Second High Grade Zone at Upper Tengkereng Gold-Copper Porphyry Discovery With 272 Metres of 0.6 g/t Gold & 0.6% Copper (1.0% Copper Equivalent) Intercept

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Barisan Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BG) is pleased to announce that drilling at hole UTD-006 has confirmed the presence of a second distinct high-grade zone located in the south-central part of the Upper Tengkereng gold-copper porphyry discovery, located in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia.

Assays have been received from the first 600 metres of hole UTD-006, which confirm the existence of a second high-grade zone. From 142 to 414 metres, UTD-006 returned 272 metres of 0.6 g/t gold + 0.6% copper (1.0% copper equivalent at current market prices) within a wider intercept of 458 metres of 0.6 g/t gold + 0.5% copper (0.9% copper equivalent at current market prices). This new high-grade zone remains open down hole and is anticipated to return meaningful grades until at least the 730-metre mark in length.

This newly validated high-grade zone was initially encountered in the upper part of hole UTD-002, where 114 metres at 0.3 g/t gold + 0.7% copper from 226 metres to 340 metres was intersected. UTD-006 was drilled approximately 110 metres north of UTD-002, also on an east-west axis, and intersected that same mineralization, hence validating this as a high-grade zone. An updated investor presentation has been uploaded onto the Barisan Gold website, where a number of tables and maps show the location and grade distribution of this newly discovered high-grade zone.

This high-grade zone (#2) is separate and distinct from the high-grade zone previously discovered in the eastern part of the deposit (#1) by holes UTD-002/003/005. High-grade zone #2 is characterized by covellite rich mineralization located within a strong advanced argillic altered zone. High-grade zone #2 starts close to surface (intersected at approximately 100 metre true depth in UTD-006) and contains a higher concentration of copper-to-gold, 60:40 (Cu:Au ratio at current market prices). On the other hand, high-grade zone #1, located in the eastern part of the porphyry discovery is characterized by chalcopyrite-chalcocite rich mineralization located within a strong advanced argillic-phyllic/chlorite-sericite zone. High-grade zone #1 has been intersected deeper (intersected at approximately 400 metre true depth in UTD-003) and contains a more balanced concentration of copper-to-gold, 45:55 (Cu:Au at current market prices).

The following table summarizes the results received in the first 6 holes of the two high-grades that have been validated.

"We are extremely pleased with the results of hole UTD-006", said Alex Granger, Chief Executive Officer of Barisan Gold. "Discovering a new high-grade zone that sits right at surface and has the highest copper values intersected so far has significantly improved the economics of the Upper Tengkereng deposit. The Upper Tengkereng discovery continues to produce stellar results with all six holes drilled so far returning meaningful intercepts over 1% copper equivalent. We have now validated two material high-grade zones and identified the potential for two more that have yet to be validated. Additional blue sky opportunities remain under the limestone cap located to the east of the deposit, under the hydro-breccia located to the south of the deposit and below the high-grade soil geochemistry anomalies."

As a whole, UTD-006 is the highest-grade hole that has been drilled so far at Upper Tengkereng. UTD-006 is mineralized 4 metres from surface and returned a 596-metre intercept grading 0.5g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.7% copper equivalent at current market prices) over the entire length of the hole so far.

Following the discovery of a new high-grade zone located in the south-central part of the porphyry, Barisan Gold has decided to build a new drill platform at the southern end of the deposit. Hole UTD-008, which is currently in the preparation stage, will target the high-grade zone #2 on a north-south axis (UTD-002/006 were both drilled on an east-west axis) to determine the true width of the high-grade zone on that axis. UTD-008 will also target a high-grade intercept from hole UTD-004 further to the north where UTD-004 returned 242 metres of 0.6g/t gold + 0.4% copper (0.8% copper equivalent) from 664 metres to 906 metres. More details about hole UTD-008 will be provided once drilling plans are finalized on this new platform.

Barisan Gold remains well financed to advance the next stage of drilling at its Upper Tengkereng gold-copper porphyry discovery.

Barisan Gold retained the laboratory services of PT Intertek Utama Services of Jakarta, Indonesia, which, in the case of UTD-006, employed the fire assay method (FA50) on gold samples and for other precious and base metal analyses, ICP with multi acid digestion.
