Tembo Gold Corp. Obtains Shareholder Consent for Previously Announced Strategic Private Placement

October 25, 2013

Toronto, Ontario – Tembo Gold Corp. (TSXV: TEM) (FRANKFURT:T23) ("Tembo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has obtained the necessary shareholder consent to move forward with its private placement of up to C$8.657M previously announced on October 8, 2013. The Company expects to enter into a subscription agreement ("Subscription Agreement") with NAMF II (Mauritius) Limited, NAMF II South Africa Partnership (together "NAMF"), Stratex Gold A.G. ("Stratex") and Concept Capital Management Limited ("CCM") (collectively, the "Investor Group") in the comings days. It is expected that the Subscription Agreement will provide for the Investor Group to subscribe for up to 44,380,000 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price per Subscription Receipt of C$0.15 for gross proceeds of up to C$6.657 million.. Additionally, the Company intends to raise up to C$2M independently from the Investor Group.

David Scott, President and CEO of Tembo, stated: "We are very excited with the prospect of a strategic partnership with the Investor Group and I believe that the addition of such respected technical and financial partners could be a promising step towards advancing the Tembo project. If completed, it is expected that this financing will secure the crucial funds required by the Company to advance the Tembo property and continue to expand on the results seen in the previous 35,000m of drilling while working towards establishing a maiden mineral resource calculation."

The last hole the Company drilled (as previously announced on January 15, 2013), TDD0041, was its most promising to date and it returned results of 22.81g/t Au over 15.00m from 299.00m including 34.78g/t Au over 9.70m from 302.30m. The Company intends to conduct follow up drilling on Ngula 1, by re-entering TDD0041 and completing this hole which has some 150m to completely traverse the known zones of mineralization encountered at shallower depths. Additional deep drilling will then follow at Ngula 1 to test the continuity of high grade mineralization intersected in TDD0041 and other holes at this target. Further, early stage drilling at Nyakagwe East, Nyakagwe Village and along the Buly structural extension, which is yet to be drilled, will be aimed at assessing the priority of each of these targets for further drill planning intended to establish a maiden mineral resource at Tembo.

The proposed Investor Group, and their board of director nominations, are expected to bring along a wealth of technical knowledge and a long-term investment outlook. The Board of Directors considers that the introduction of the Investor Group upon completion of the private placement and conversion of the Subscription Receipts will favorably expand the potential capital base of the Company going forward. The strategic intention of the Investor Group is to prioritize continued advancement of the exploration of the Tembo project with an aim to develop a mineral resource base. With one diamond drilling rig already on site, the Company intends to recommence drilling on the Tembo project immediately following the closing of the private placement.
