Golden Reign Outlines High-Grade Initial Resource of 95,000 Indicated Gold Equivalent Ounces and 805,000 Inferred Gold Equivalent Ounces at San Albino Mine Area, Nicaragua

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Golden Reign Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GRR) (the "Company" or "Golden Reign") is pleased to announce an initial mineral resource estimate from the first 15 months of drilling completed the San Albino Mine area of its San Albino-Murra Property (the "Property"), Nicaragua.

Highlights:


--  Indicated resources of 95,000 ounces gold equivalent at 8.47 g/t
    contained in 348,000 tonnes using 0.5 g/t open pit and 1.5 g/t
    underground gold equivalent cut-offs 
--  Inferred resources of 805,000 ounces gold equivalent at 7.43 g/t
    contained in 3,371,000 tonnes using 0.5 g/t open pit and 1.5 g/t
    underground gold equivalent cut-offs 
--  Mineral resources are at shallow depth, within approximately 300 metres
    from surface 
--  Potential to add resources through additional in-fill and step-out
    drilling. An Exploration Target beyond the resource estimate (along
    strike and down dip) has been identified with an estimated 3 to 5
    million tonnes at a grade between 6 to 10 grams gold equivalent per
    tonne. The potential quantity and grade of the Exploration Target is
    conceptual in nature, there has been insufficient exploration to define
    a mineral resource, and it is uncertain if further exploration will
    result in discovery of a mineral resource

Only 0.6 square kilometres of the 2 square kilometre San Albino Mine area has been drill tested. All mineralized zones remain open at depth and along strike in both directions.

Golden Reign is very encouraged by this initial resource calculation, which provides a cornerstone from which it can grow, adding additional potential resources in the San Albino Mine area and from numerous regional targets currently being assessed within its much larger 138 square kilometre land package.

Since first optioning the Property on June 26, 2009, the Company has made rapid progress, drilling 15 out of the 36 months (41%) spent working on the project. In addition, Golden Reign has successfully:


--  earned an initial 80% interest in and to the Property approximately 1.5
    years in advance 
--  acquired the remaining 20% interest in and to the Property 
--  outlined an initial resource calculation via exploration drilling in an
    area substantially untested by prior drilling or other modern
    exploration techniques.

Mineral Resource Estimate Notes and Parameters:                             
 1. Mineral Resource estimates are based upon an October 31, 2012 two year  
    trailing average gold price of US$1,592 per ounce, a 95% recovery rate, 
    bulk density of 2.8 t/m3, open-pit mining costs of US$3 per tonne, pit  
    slopes of 45 degrees, underground mining costs of US$48 per tonne,      
    milling costs of US$20 per tonne, and general and administrative costs  
    of US$5 per tonne;                                                      
 2. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated 
    economic viability.There is no certainty that all or any part of the    
    Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves;    
 3. The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected by         
    environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political,     
    marketing, or other relevant issues, although the Company is not aware  
    of any such issues;                                                     
 4. The quantity and grade of reported Inferred resources in this estimation
    are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to  
    define these Inferred resources as an Indicated or Measured mineral     
    resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in      
    upgrading them to an Indicated or Measured mineral resource category.   
 5. Gold Equivalent was calculated on the basis of 1 gram gold = 60 grams   
    silver.                                                                 

The San Albino resource model consists of three flatly dipping, high grade, narrow vein systems over a strike length of 850 metres, down dip extension of 925 metres, with a minimum true width of one metre and average true width of 2.6 metres. Grade capping varied from no capping to 100 g/t depending on the vein system. All silver assays were capped at 100 g/t. Inverse distance cubed grade interpolation was on 2m x 2m x 6m blocks utilizing Gemcom. 166 of 201 drill holes and trenches on the Property were utilized in the resource estimate calculation.

The resource estimate was completed by P & E Mining Consultants Inc. ("P&E") of Brampton, Ontario, Canada. P&E prepared a mineral resource estimate for the San Albino Mine area in accordance with the Canadian Securities Administrators ("CSA") National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") and resources have been estimated using the Canadian institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by CIM Council.

The Mineral Resource estimates in this news release were prepared by Eugene Puritch, P.Eng. and Antoine Yassa, P.Geo. of P&E, each an independent qualified person, as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Puritch has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

An independent NI 43-101 compliant technical report relating to the initial Mineral Resource estimate for the San Albino Mine area will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of this news release.

Quality Assurance

The Company's rigorous QA/QC program utilizes best industry practices, involving insertion of appropriate standards, blanks and field duplicates. All drill holes were sampled on at most a 1.0 metre interval within the mineralized zones, with drill core split on site and one half then being transported to the Inspectorate America Corporation ("Inspectorate"), a certified USA based laboratory (UKAS, NAMAS, STERLAB, ISO 17025), preparation facility in Managua. The samples were then transferred to Inspectorate's analytical laboratory in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. Duplicate samples were also sent to Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for comparative analysis. Gold and silver analyses were carried out by fire assay. In addition, for samples assaying greater than 1 g/t gold, check assays were also carried out by the metallic screen method to verify high-grade sample assays obtained by fire assay and to minimize gold nugget effect.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
