(BRG-TSXV) Awaits Assay Results From Initial Drilling On The Incamayo Project In North West Argentina

March 29, 2011 - Toronto

Brigadier Gold Limited (BRG-TSXV)

Bigadier Gold Limited's drilling contractor, Falcon Drilling (Barbados)Succursal Argentina, has, since the commencement of drilling in earlyMarch,completed approximately 641 metres of the planned 1500 metres on theIncamayoproject in northwest Argentina.

An initial two holes have been completed to test the northern end of knownmineralization on the property, with the first hole at -60° twinningCG97-07(the best of nine holes drilled on the property in 1997 by MansfieldMinerals)and the second hole drilled at an angle of -50° to aid in definingfurtherparameters to the mineralization.

The nine holes drilled by Mansfield were originally designed to test foreconomic grade mineralization below several well-mineralized sectionsencountered in trenches excavated during the previous exploration season.TheMansfield discovery hole (CG97-07), located 600 metres to the northeast ofothermineralized holes, was reported in a Mansfield November 14, 1997, newsreleaseon Stockwatch ( and is available on Sedar(

Brigadier's DDHCG11-01 has intersected massive to disseminatedmineralizationover a 53.0 metre interval from 106.3 metres to 159.3 metres in depth thatmatches the intersection as described in the original Mansfield reversecirculation hole, including a 7.0 metre interval from 106.3 to 113.3 metrescontaining numerous intervals of massive to semi-massive sulphide veins.Below160 metres disseminated sulphides occur to the end of the hole at 298.5metreswith an interval of sulphide breccia from 288.35 to 289.33 metres.

The second hole completed (DDHCG11-02) was drilled at -50° to overcutDDHCG11-01, and predominantly intersected disseminated mineralization.Silicifiedbreccia and variably silicified sandstone occur from 18.4 to 25.6 metreswithstrong vuggy iron oxidation. From 80.8 - 127 metres occurred variablesilicification with breccias and up to 8% disseminated and massivesulphides.Vuggy goethitic oxidation is often associated with the breccias andsilicification. Hole DDHCG11-02 did not cut the massive to semi-massivemineralization as seen in DDHCG11-01. This may be an indication thatmineralization is improving with depth.

Results of the IP survey, which was commenced on the property by ArgaliGeophysica of Antofagasta, Chile in December, 2010, and was completed priortothe start of the drill program, show that the above holes are located atthesoutheastern edge of a large, untested chargeability anomaly.

As noted in Brigadier's February 8, 2011, news release on Stockwatch( and available on Sedar (, a review ofthe1997 drill program had determined that many of the 6 drill holes on thesouthernpart of the property were oriented incorrectly to test the mineralizedzonesexposed at surface.

Hole DDHCG11-03 is located approximately 600 metres southwest of holes 1and 2and was drilled at -60° and designed to cut a series of mineralized(auriferous)silicified zones exposed on surface and in trenches. This style ofmineralization differs markedly from that seen in DDHCG11-01 and 02 andprobablyrepresents a different mineralizing event.

DDHCG11-03 intersected several zones of mineralization comprising quartzstockworks with ubiquitous iron oxides after sulphides, the most importantbeingfrom 0 to 4 metres, 17.2 to 27.6 metres, 32.4 to 40.3 metres and 69.1 to80.0metres. From 82.5 to 83.9 metres and from 106.5 to 109.2 metres occurnumerousnarrow veins of massive to semi-massive sulphides. This hole is located inanarea where 4 Mansfield holes are believed to have been drilled to testsurfacemineralization.

Assay results on the above holes are pending and will be reported oncereceived.Drilling is continuing apace.

Qualified person and quality assurance/quality control: Tom Carpenter, BSc,PGeo, of Discovery Consultants, and a qualified person as defined byNationalInstrument 43-101, has supervised the preparation of the scientific andtechnical information that forms the basis for this news release. Mr.Carpenteris not independent of Brigadier by virtue of being a holder of incentivestockoptions.

Brigadier's work programs are supervised by Mr. Carpenter, who isresponsiblefor all aspects of the work, including the quality control/qualityassuranceprogram. On-site personnel at the project rigorously collect and tracksampleswhich are then sealed and shipped via bonded courier to the facilities ofAcmeAnalytical Laboratories (Argentina) S.A. in Mendoza, Argentina, foranalysis.Representative blank, duplicate and standard samples are forwarded to Acmeforquality control purposes.

Acme's quality control system complies with International Standard ISO9001:2000 requirements. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored bytheanalyses of reagent blanks, reference material and replicate samples.Qualitycontrol is further assured by the use of international and in-housestandards.
