VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -(Marketwired – May 17, 2013) – Klondike Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KG) (the “Company”) hereby announces Richard Hughes has tendered his resignation as Chairman and Director. The Company wishes to thank Richard for his many years of service, specifically for founding the Company and for assembling the largest mineral claim block in the Klondike Gold Fields which host the Eldorado and Upper Bonanza Creek drainages. His early work in the Klondike advanced the search for hard-rock gold sources and set the stage for the material advances the company made during the 2012 exploration season. Eldorado and Bonanza Creeks are recognized as having historically the most productive placer claims, per area, some of which still continue to produce today. Underlying these rich placer operations are Klondike Gold Corp.’s hard-rock claims. Significantly most of the placer gold being mined on Eldorado and Upper Bonanza originated from sources on the Lone Star Ridge which was the centre of Richard’s attention for many years. Thanks to his efforts this property is now in the hands of Klondike Gold Corp. The Company appreciates Richard’s foresight and historic support and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.


Klondike Gold Corp. is a Canadian exploration company with offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Dawson City, Yukon. The Company is focused on the development of its Yukon gold properties, and also holds a large portfolio of gold and base metal projects in southeastern British Columbia, and Portugal.
