November 3, 2011 (Vancouver, BC) – Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL, Frankfurt: FR4N)(“Freegold” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide assays for the last three holes from the Phase One drill program on the Dolphin Zone on Golden Summit , Alaska.
A total of 28 holes were completed totaling 6,328 metres during the Phase One program. Drilling in this phase was designed both to upgrade the resource category as well as expand the known resource. An updated NI-43-101 resource estimate is expected to be completed on the Dolphin Zone by the end of 2011. The holes drilled in the Phase One program were within and adjacent to the main intrusive of the Dolphin Zone (http://www.freegoldventures.com/i/maps/110311FVL_Map1.pdf) and were designed to expand the resource to the east, south and to depth.
Highlights of the Phase One program to date include – GSDC 11-32 which returned 452 m @ 0.68 g/t Au, and GSDC 11-47 which returned 149.2 m @ 1.03 g/t Au (from 367 – 516.2m) and GSDC 11-38 which returned 207.4 m @ 1.00 g/t Au, including 74.1 m @ 2.3 g/t Au, GSDC 11-41 which returned 187 m @ 0.65 g/t Au and GSDC 11-51 which returned 56.1 m @ 0.68 g/t Au. See press releases dated June 13th, 2011, August 2nd, 2011 and October 11th, 2011 respectively.

Depth of Hole (ft)
ALS Chemex was used to analyze core samples via fire assay analysis for gold plus multi element ICP-AES and ICP-MS analysis using 4 acid digestion. Quality control entailed insertion of blanks and standards into the sample stream, at the rate of approximately one QA/QC sample every tenth assay. Reported standard and blank assay values were within an acceptable margin of error.
The Qualified Person who has reviewed the technical disclosure contained in this release is Curt Freeman, MSc., PGeo, a qualified person under NI-43-101.
A Phase 2 10,000 metre drilling program was initiated in mid August and is expected to continue until March of 2012. Drilling is underway at the Cleary Hill mine prospect where 15 holes have been completed to date. Freegold hopes to develop the first NI 43-101 resource in that area.
In addition to the Golden Summit drill program Freegold completed three diamond drill holes (2,984 feet in total) on it’s Rob Gold Project. Assay results are pending.
