2012 News

March 15, 2012 (Vancouver, BC) Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL, Frankfurt: FR4N) (“Freegold”) is pleased to report the results of from its ongoing drill program on the Golden Summit Project located near Fairbanks, Alaska. Drilling is presently underway on the project with two rigs. Both rigs are focused on the Cleary Hill/Dolphin areas with a goal of tying the Cleary Hill Zone into the existing Dolphin Resource in the next resource update. The current resource (December 2011) at Dolphin using a 0.35 g/t cutoff is 14,840,000 tonnes @ 0.66 g/t Au - representing 316,000 ounces in the indicated category and 50,460,000 tonnes @ 0.61 g/t Au - representing 991,000 ounces in the inferred category. To date 4,017 metres of drilling have been completed in the Cleary Hill/ Dolphin zones since mid January of which assays have now been reported for 1,832 metres. The total program planned for 2012 for Golden Summit is 20,000 metres.

Significant new results from the Cleary Hill area are reported below:

Width refers to drill hole intercepts, true widths can not be determined due to uncertain geometry of mineralization.

Each of these reported holes are towards the western edge of the Cleary Hill vein system. Current drilling is continuing to move west toward the Dolphin resource. Hole CL 12-05 is the southern most hole on the western edge of the Cleary system. Additional drilling is designed to extend this mineralization further to the south and west towards the Dolphin resource area.

In addition to the drilling on the Cleary Hill area, Freegold has completed its initial drilling on the Christina area, a +5,000 foot long shear zone which hosts several past- producing high grade gold mines. Drilling has indicated that the Christina area may have potential for bulk tonnage mineralization similar to that being explored in the Cleary Hill/Dolphin areas. To date 1,686 metres have been completed in the Christina area since mid January of which assays have now been reported for 1,175 metres. Additional drilling may be conducted at Christina following evaluation of these drill holes.

The Qualified Person who has reviewed the technical disclosure contained in this release is Curtis J. Freeman, M.Sc., PGeo who is the primary geological consultant for the project.

Drill cores were cut in half using a diamond saw, with one-half placed in sealed bags. Core samples were picked up on-site by ALS-Chemex Labs and transported to their facility in Fairbanks, Alaska. A sample quality control/quality assurance program was implemented.
