Indigo Exploration Starts Sampling Exploration Program at Moule Gold Permit in Burkina Faso

Indigo Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IXI) reports that it has started a comprehensive fall 2010 sampling exploration program on its Moule Gold Permit in Burkina Faso, West Africa, in preparation for drilling expected to follow next month.

The program will consist of rock and soil sampling and trenching focused in areas that previously graded greater than 1 g/t Au. Results of the sampling program will be used to optimize and rank the sequence of the multiple drill targets.

The Moule Gold Permit covers 249 square kilometres of prospective Birimian greenstone geology. Much of West Africa is underlain by the Birimian Greenstone Belt, one of the most prolific gold producing areas in the world.

Past and current artisanal workings are scattered over the entire Moule permit. To date, there has been property-wide mapping and sampling of quartz veining and quartz float. Previous explorers subsequently focussed their efforts in a 7 kilometre by 6 kilometre area with a soil grid, detailed mapping and local induced polarization (IP) survey. Rock sampling on this grid returned 46 of 480 grab samples with gold values between 1 g/t Au and 16.5 g/t Au. Multiple long and wide linear targets are evident within the grid. One target is a 500 metre wide northwest trending corridor, traceable for at least 1.6 kilometres, where multiple shear zones and parallel multiple quartz float trends have coincident chargeability, elevated gold soil anomalies and local artisanal workings. A second target is a 2.5 kilometre long linear gold soil anomaly with coincident quartz float, chargeability high and local artisanal workings. A third target is a 0.8 kilometre long trend of quartz veining which can swarm to at least 50 metres wide, where grab samples reached a high of 7 g/t Au. In addition, other quartz trends on the property with elevated gold values in soils and rocks and local artisanal workings are worthy of future attention. Indigo geologists have identified multiple prospective targets for bulk tonnage gold systems, based on the artisanal workings combined with previous sampling programs.

Indigo plans an initial program of rock sampling, trenching and soil geochemistry over selected quartz trends to optimize drill targets. A phase one combination air core/reverse circulation drilling program up to 5,000 metres is scheduled for late November.

Indigo is earning a 100% interest, subject to a 1.5% Net Smelter Return (NSR) royalty in the Moule Gold Permit by making cash payments totalling US$410,000 over 3 years. Indigo retains the right to purchase the entire 1.5% NSR for US$1,800,000.
