TNR Gold Corp. Finalizes Los Azules Settlement with McEwen Mining
Vancouver B.C., February 05, 2013: TNR Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "TNR") Is pleased to announce that in follow-up to its press release of November 12, 2012, whereby TNR Gold Corp. announced that it and its wholly owned subsidiary, Solitario Argentina S.A. had reached a settlement with McEwen Mining Inc. with respect to the Los Azules Copper Project located in San Juan Province, Argentina, formal documentation and the details pertaining thereto have now been signed and will be filed on SEDAR under TNR's profile at http://sedar.com.
The Company is also pleased to announce that the 1 million shares of McEwen Mining Inc. that form part of the settlement have now been issued (information about McEwen Mining can be found at http://www.mcewenmining.com and on Sedar at http://www.sedar.com). The Company expects that the delivery of the certificates representing such shares will occur upon the transfer of the mineral rights to the Escorpio IV mining tenure to McEwen Mining Inc, which it anticipates will take place later this month. The shares will be subject to the minimum statutory hold period.
About Los Azules
The Company has a 25% back-in right in the northern part of the Los Azules property which is exercisable following the completion of a feasibility study. If the Company elects to back-in for 5% or less or has its interest diluted to 5% or less, TNR will receive a net smelter royalty of 0.6%.
The Los Azules copper deposit is located in the San Juan province of Argentina. McEwen Mining Inc. is the current operator on the Los Azules copper deposit and the Company advises that on January 17, 2013, McEwen Mining Inc. issued a press-release in relation to the deposit. The press release is accessible on Sedar at http://www.sedar.com and on McEwen Mining Inc's website at http://mcewenmining.com.
The press release issued by McEwen Mining Inc. dated January 17, 2013 includes preliminary results from drilling operations on the Los Azules copper deposit for the current exploration season. McEwen Mining Inc.'s press release appears to have been prepared by qualified persons, but no independent qualified person engaged by TNR Gold Corp. has done sufficient work to analyze, interpret, classify or verify McEwen Mining Inc.'s information to determine the accuracy of the current mineral reserve or resource or other information referred to in the press release. Accordingly, the reader is cautioned in placing any reliance on the subject results and estimates.

Over the past twenty-one years TNR, through its lead generator business model, has been successful in generating high quality exploration projects around the globe. With the Company's expertise, resources and industry network, it is well positioned to aggressively identify, source, explore, partner and continue to expand its project portfolio.
TNR's subsidiary, International Lithium Corp. (TSX:ILC.V), demonstrated the successful application of TNR's business model in which TNR shareholders benefited from a unit distribution upon spin-out of TNR's lithium and rare metals projects. Gangeng Lithium Co. Ltd. is a leading China based, multi-product lithium manufacturer, and strategic partner and investor in ILC. TNR remains a large shareholder in ILC at 25.5% of outstanding shares.
At its core, TNR provides significant exposure to gold and copper through its holdings in Alaska and Argentina; and teamed with the recent acquisitions of rare-earth elements and iron ore projects in Canada confirm TNR's commitment to continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.
