    ABV GOLD–ABVG (pinksheets) Germany AB8

    ABVG may prove to be a very interesting pinksheet play. The company as per recent press release is looking to acquire mineral properties. (read the brief description below) The company also announced the intent to buy back over 100 million shares , may do wonders for the stock price

    ABV Gold Inc. (Pink Sheets: ABVG, Frankfurt: AB8) is a gold and precious metals mining company founded as an exploration company to locate, explore and mine world-class deposits. Headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, we currently hold claims in three different properties located in Nevada and Northern Quebec: the Toiyabe Uranium, the Parin Mining, and the Dun Glen properties.

    Because our acquisition program is key to the success of our company’s business plan, we have retained Sattva Capital Corp., which has been advising junior mining companies on property acquisitions for the last five years and has completed numerous high profile property acquisitions in 2006 and 2007 for a number of TSXv junior mining companies.

    Sattva’s record speaks for itself: they have secured great properties for their clients and investment capital soon followed. We are sure we can benefit from their expertise.

    ABV Gold, Inc. Subsidiary in Advanced Discussions to Purchase a 2 Million Ounce Gold Deposit

    MONTREAL, Aug 13, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) —
    ABV Gold, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ABVG) (FRANKFURT: AB8) is pleased to announce that it is in advanced discussions to purchase a 2,000,000 ounce gold deposit in New Mexico.

    “ABV Gold Inc. is pleased to announce that it is in advanced discussions to purchase a 2,000,000 ounce gold deposit in New Mexico,” reported Daniel Ryan, President of ABV Gold Inc. “This purchase is going to be done through a 100% wholly owned subsidiary. The subsidiary is completing the purchase in order to maximize the upside for our current shareholders. It is our intention to take this subsidiary public through the CPC (Capital Pool Company) program on the TSX Venture Exchange (www.tsx.com) in Canada. We have secured commitments for initial funding of $2.3 million CDN in three separate rounds in order to complete the transaction. Information on the CPC program can be found at the following URL: http://www.tsx.com/en/listings/listing_with_us/ways/capital_company.html.

    “This purchase is a significant milestone for ABV Gold Inc.,” continued Mr. Ryan. “This milestone will have a significant impact on the net asset value of the shares of ABV Gold, Inc. Our cash cost on this new project is $385 per ounce. We have completed thorough research and we can conclude from comparables on the TSXv that the market should give our new pubco a market valuation in excess of $80 million CDN. Post financing ABV Gold will retain 65% of the equity giving our company a very valuable holding.”

    Furthermore, Mr. Ryan commented, “We will be working with an investment advisor at Canaccord Adams Inc. to complete the CPC transaction. Our schedule calls for a 90-day closing window. I have been involved in two similar transactions during the past year and have found them to be a great vehicle for raising capital and they tend to be very well received by the market. The subsidiary will be announcing a separate management team including directors with Canadian public company experience. Once we complete this transaction we will entertain subsequent CPC RTOs on an as needed basis. Our team at ABV Gold is seeing high quality deal flow and we can envision an important number of of transactions being completed at the ABV and subsidiary level.”

    ABV Gold, Inc. Announces the Acquisition of 132 Million Shares of Common Stock

    MONTREAL, Aug 14, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) —
    ABV Gold, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ABVG) (FRANKFURT: AB8) is pleased to announce that it has acquired 132 million shares of common stock.

    “ABV Gold Inc. is pleased to announce that it has acquired 132 million shares of common stock. This acquisition of stock is part of our ongoing restructuring of the company in order to maximize shareholder value,” said Daniel Ryan, President of ABV Gold Inc. “This purchase will allow us to reduce the issued and outstanding common stock of the company from 323 million to 191 million shares. This reduction in the outstanding shares gives a higher asset value on a per share basis for all remaining stock holders.”

    “This purchase was completed in a combination of open market and private transactions,” reported Mr. Ryan. “This purchase of stock was considered a wise investment given our expectation that ABV Gold Inc. should have an asset value in excess of .50 USD once all our pending transactions are completed. Our team is working on innovative financing methods in order to attract continued investment in the projects undertaken by our company. The CPC RTO announced yesterday is just one example of our ongoing commitment to a business model which is aimed at building shareholder equity.”

    In closing, Mr. Ryan stated, “Shareholders should expect to see the more announcements in regards to other deals which fit our business model. Our intention is to build a company which we can move to the OTCBB in early October. I expect our team will be successful in delivering value to all our shareholders. We are targeting an asset base increase to $100 million USD by year end which should ultimately be reflected in a higher share price.”
