Barisan Gold Completes Extension Of Exploration Licenses

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- February 20, 2013 -- Barisan Gold Corporation (TSXV-BG) wishes to inform shareholders that its majority-owned Indonesian subsidiary, PT Gayo Mineral Resources ("Gayo"), has received an extension to its Exploration Izin Usaha Pertambangan ("IUP"). The IUP has been extended until March 5, 2015. This, combined with the two IUPs extended in December 2012 (see press release dated December 24, 2012), completes the IUP extension process for all our exploration licenses in Indonesia.

The Gayo IUP is 80% owned by Barisan Gold and is solely operated by the Company. The IUP contains the Upper Tengkereng, Lower Tengkereng, Upper Ise-Ise and Sekeulen gold-copper porphyry prospects. Gayo continues to work with local government authorities seeking forestry borrow-use permits, which would allow it to resume drilling at Upper Tengkereng and other gold-copper porphyries.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
