DR. REINHARD RAMDOHR TAKES REINS OF AFRICAN QUEEN’S YELLOWJACKET GOLD PROJECT

Vancouver, British Columbia — AFRICAN QUEEN MINES LTD. (the “Company”)is pleased to announce that experienced, world-class senior geologist Reinhard Ramdohr, Ph.D., has now joined the Company as Head of Exploration and Project Manager at the Company’s Yellowjacket Gold Project, which covers an aggregate of 228.04 sq. km in the historic Pine Creek and Spruce Creek areas 9 km East of Atlin, B.C. (the “Project”). His efforts will be focused on exploration of the hard-rock potential of the Project on a district basis with a view toward delineation and development of one or more commercially viable gold deposits. Initially, he will oversee the 2016 exploration program, which includes core drilling set to commence shortly in two phases.

Dr. Ramdohr is highly qualified as an exploration geologist and mining engineer with 40 years’ experience in gold, base metals, iron ore, uranium and gemstone exploration around the world. His experience runs the gamut from grass roots exploration and mapping to sophisticated geophysical and drilling programs, to ore reserve calculation, feasibility studies as well as overseeing formal training and education programs. Dr. Ramdohr is a German national, resident of Weinheim, and will be on site at Yellowjacket through the end of the work season in November. He has a Mining Engineering degree from Clausthal,-Zellerfeld Technical University and a Doctorate in Geology from Heidelberg University. He is a frequent lecturer and published technical writer.

Dr. Ramdohr’s arrival at the Company reunites him with the Company’s management and technical teams which successfully carried out development of projects for Pan African Mining Corp., which was sold to Asia Thai Mining Co., Ltd. in 2008. Dr. Ramdohr successfully oversaw exploration for Pan African, with a focus on drilling and development of uranothorianite deposits in the Tranomaro area of southern Madagascar. More recently, he has served for nearly 4 years as Exploration Manager for Russian major Nordgold in Burkina Faso, West Africa. He contributed to gold projects Bissa (now in production) and Bouly (slated for production in near future). Dr. Ramdohr has worked for a host of other companies, large and small, over his lengthy career, in diverse locations with a focus on Africa and Australia. Dr. Ramdohr replaces Fionnuala Devine, Senior Project Geologist, who has departed the Company to pursue other commitments after nine months of service.

Throughout his career, Dr. Ramdohr has contributed his time and talents to educating third world geologists and mining engineers and training other technical personnel in state-of-the art techniques. He participated in a number of different projects for the German Third World assistance program (“GTZ”), supporting small scale mining ventures in Africa, as well as for the German Senior Expert Service. He has also recently been lecturing in Saudi Arabia at King Abdullah University for Science and Tecnology.

According to Irwin Olian, CEO of the Company, “We are honored that Dr. Ramdohr has agreed to take the reins of our Yellowjacket Gold Project. We had a great relationship with Reini when he served our predecessor company Pan African Mining Corp. in Madagascar. His experience and qualifications will be invaluable to us again and should enhance our potential for success at Yellowjacket.”
