TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2012) - Kilo Goldmines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:KGL)(FRANKFURT:02K) ("Kilo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that registration of the exploitation licenses comprising the Somituri Property has now been completed. The registration had been pending and the exploitation licenses are now officially registered in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in the name of Kilo's 75% owned subsidiary, KGL Somituri SPRL. The exploitation licenses are valid until 2039.

Under DRC mining law, 5% of any project is assigned to the DRC state, resulting in net ownership by KGL in the project of 71.25%. The registration triggers a final payment to the minority shareholders of KGL - Somituri SPRL of 250,000 euros which, subject to regulatory approval, will be satisfied by cash payments of 30,000 euros and the issuance of 1,405,777 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.203321 per share.

Alex van Hoeken, President and CEO of Kilo, commented, "We are pleased that the registration, which has been pending for some time, has now been completed as it provides the Company with the highest degree of legal tenure in the DRC for the Somituri exploitation licences."
