TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Carpathian Gold Inc. (TSX:CPN) (the "Corporation" or "Carpathian") is pleased with the significant achievements made during 2012, one of which will result in the transformation of Carpathian into a gold producing company by the second half of 2013, with annualized production forecasted to be in the order of 100,000 ounces of gold per year. The Corporation hosts a large gold plus copper resource base of measured plus indicated resources that totals 8.1 million ounces of gold (inclusive of proven and probable reserves of 830,000 ounces) and 1.4 billion pounds of copper (see details at the end of this press release) from its two wholly owned assets: 1) Riacho dos Machados Gold Mining Project (the "RDM Mine" or "Project") in Brazil and; 2) the Rovina Valley Gold-Copper Project in Romania. This resource and reserve base provides the means for the Corporation to achieve its goal of becoming a gold producer in 2013 and, with its current asset base advance itself towards a gold production profile of a significant mid-tier mining company.
Despite 2012 being another year that saw unsettled and turbulent markets, especially for gold mining and exploration equities, the Corporation was able to substantially advance its projects as a result of its cash position, as well as the arrangement of a senior debt loan facility with Macquarie Bank Limited ("Macquarie Bank") dedicated to the development and construction of the RDM Mine.
Some of the Corporation's achievements in 2012 are described below.
RDM Mine, Brazil:
-- Commenced the construction and development of the RDM Mine. -- As at December 31, 2012 the development of the Project that will mine 7,000 t/d of ore from an open pit operation and will treat ore utilizing a standard crush, grind and CIL processing facility, was approximately 60% complete. The Project development remains on track for production in the second half of 2013 at an annualized rate of approximately 100,000 ounces of gold for an initial period of +8 years. -- All major contracts were finalized and signed and the delivery of the crushers, grinding mill and mining equipment was completed. -- Senior debt project financing with Macquarie Bank was increased to US$90 million to complete the construction of the Project that has a projected initial capital cost of approximately US$160 to US$165 million. All documentation finalizing the debt facility was signed on January 11, 2013, with expected drawdown of the facility to commence by the end of January 2013. -- A 5,720 metre exploration-drilling program was completed to evaluate on- strike near surface mineralization both to the north and south of the RDM open pit. These targets are a short distance from the crushing operations so that any new, economically viable, mineralized zone could easily be trucked to the processing facility that has a capacity of 9,000 t/d. The exploration program included soil geochemistry, rock- float sampling, trenching, auger drilling, and diamond core drilling. Three targets north and one south of the mine were drill tested while several additional targets were scout drilled through drilling activity that was completed by the end of December 2012. Assay results are still being received for the latter part of the drill program and completed results to date from this program are currently being evaluated and interpreted. Some highlights from results received to date include the following: -- Cinco Mil Target (less than1 km north of the pit) -- Trench TRCM1 with 11 metres (m) at 3.23 g/t Au -- Diamond drill hole FCM-13 intersected 11 m with 4.10 g/t Au (0-11 m hole depth, located below TRCM1) -- Manguinha Target (2 km north of the pit) -- Diamond drill hole FMG-05 intersected 11 m with 1.02 g/t Au (14-25 m hole depth) -- Diamond drill hole FMG-07 intersected 8 m with 1.34 g/t Au (31-39 m hole depth)
Note: Intersections utilize a 0.30 g/t Au cut-off allowing a maximum 1.0 m dilution. All above intersections are in weathered oxide zone. True widths are not known at this time. The following are azimuth (degrees)/dip (degrees)/total depth (metres) of the drill holes listed above: FCM-13: 290/-60/73.0; FMG-05: 90/-85/102.0; FMG-07: 290/-55/81.2
Rovina Valley Project, Romania:
-- Completed 5,290 metres of resource definition drilling, 7,837 metres of exploration and satellite target drilling, predominantly at the Ciresata porphyry and 915 metres of geotechnical drilling to complete drill programs initiated in 2011. A total of 305 diamond drill holes have been completed on the project for a total of 136,705 metres. -- Announced a resource update on July 17, 2012, which increased the previous measured plus indicated gold resource category by 134% to 7.19 million ounces and increased the measured plus indicated copper resource by 84% to 1.420 billion pounds of copper. In addition, the measured plus indicated gold resource grade increased by 12.2 % from the previous resource and the tonnage by 110%. The 2012 resource update is shown below. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Resource Tonnage Au Cu Gold Copper Au eq(i) Category (MM t) (g/t) (%) (MM oz) (MM lbs) (MM oz) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Measured Rovina (open-pit) 31.8 0.36 0.30 0.37 209.0 0.91 Colnic (open-pit) 29.4 0.64 0.12 0.61 75.0 0.80 Ciresata (underground) 29.7 0.86 0.16 0.82 105.0 1.09 Total Measured 90.9 0.62 0.19 1.81 389.0 2.80 Indicated Rovina (open-pit) 73.5 0.27 0.23 0.64 370.0 1.59 Colnic (open-pit) 106.3 0.47 0.10 1.59 226.0 2.18 Ciresata (underground) 135.1 0.72 0.15 3.15 435.0 4.26 Total Indicated 315.0 0.53 0.15 5.38 1,031.0 8.03 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total Measured + Indicated 405.9 0.55 0.16 7.19 1,420.0 10.84 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Comparison to 2008 Resource Estimate +110% +12.2% -11.1% +134% +87% +113% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Resource Tonnage Au Cu Gold Copper Au eq(i) Category (MM t) (g/t) (%) (MM oz) (MM lbs) (MM oz) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Inferred Rovina (open-pit) 13.4 0.19 0.20 0.08 60.0 0.24 Colnic (open-pit) 3.8 0.32 0.10 0.04 8.0 0.06 Ciresata (underground) 9.6 0.67 0.14 0.21 29.0 0.28 Total Inferred 26.8 0.38 0.16 0.33 97.0 0.58 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Comparison to 2008 Resource Estimate -85% -43.7% -3.1% -92% -85% -90% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- - (i)Au eq. determined by using a gold price of US$1,370 per ounce and a copper price of US3.52/lb.

This study was completed by a consortium of Romanian certified consultants and included resource-reserve assessments, mining and processing evaluations, environmental-social baseline and impact risk assessments, health and safety evaluations and closure plans. The conversion to a Mining License is not expected before mid-year 2013. -- A consortium of well-known engineering groups and specialists, led by AGP Mining Consultants Inc. ("AGP") performed worked for a Pre- Feasibility study for the project during 2012. The Pre-Feasibility study contemplates a 45,000 t/d mining operation from two open pits and one underground mine, utilizing a standard copper flotation processing facility. It is expected that the results from this study will be released by the end of Q1, 2013. Corporate: -- The Corporation arranged with Macquarie Bank to increase the Project Loan Facility (the "Facility") from US$80 million to US$90 million for the RDM Mine. As previously reported (see press release dated January 12, 2012) the Corporation had entered into price protection programs in the form of currency swaps for the Project's CAPEX (R$1.90 to $US1.00) and OPEX (R$1.983 to $US1.00) as well as a gold price protection program comprised of 216,600 ounces of gold (approximately 26% of the open pit reserves) at a price of US$1,600 per ounce. -- On January 11, 2013 the Corporation, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Mineracao Riacho dos Machados ("MRDM") and Macquarie Bank signed the definitive Facility Agreement. The Facility Agreement is a five-year agreement with standard commercial terms as is customary in agreements of this nature. Subject only to interest breakage costs, the Corporation may repay the Facility at any time, with no adverse penalties. In consideration for increasing in the Facility and extending the completion guarantee date for the Gold Purchase and Sales Agreement (see press release of May 5, 2010) the Corporation has granted Macquarie Bank 20 million common share purchase warrants at an exercise price of $0.40 per warrant for a period of three years, as well as a call option on an additional 10,000 ounces of gold at $2,000 per ounce for a three year period. -- In 2012, the Corporation spent approximately US$66 million on the RDM Mine development. In 2013, the Corporation will fund approximately an additional US$10 million from its current treasury and then use the net proceeds from the US$90 million Facility Agreement for the construction and development of the RDM Mine. -- In 2012, the Corporation spent approximately US$10.0 million on the Rovina Valley Project to fund the various drilling programs, resource update, Pre-Feasibility study and technical studies for the mining license application and social programs.
The Corporation's priorities are to complete the construction and development of the RDM Mine and the commencement of gold production as scheduled, as well as to continue to advance the Rovina Valley Project. Additionally, the Corporation will continue to evaluate any other opportunities that may add significant shareholder value.
The following lists the major objectives for each of the RDM Mine and the Rovina Valley Project for 2013.
2013 Objectives for the RDM Mine, Brazil
-- Complete the construction and development of the Project for mid-2013 gold production at an annualized rate of 100,000 ounces per year. -- Continue to evaluate exploration targets primarily on-strike from the open pit mineralization to outline additional shallow resources for future growth and extension of the mine life of the Project. -- Evaluation studies for the exploitation of deeper resources via an underground operation with the objective of adding approximately 50% more mineable material approximately half way through the open-pit mining operation. -- Continue EIA and SIA programs throughout the year. 2013 Objectives for the Rovina Valley Project, Romania -- Obtain final approval for the conversion of the Exploration License to a Mining License. -- Complete a reserve estimate for the project. -- Complete a Pre-Feasibility study. -- Initiate a Feasibility Study. -- Evaluate the possibility of further satellite drilling on the project. -- Continue EIA and SIA programs throughout the year as well as all long- lead time programs that will be required for permitting of the project. -- Initiate the detailed permitting process required to put the project into production.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
