Carpathian Reviews 2012 Achievements and Reports RDM Mine Construction now 60% Complete and Remains on Schedule for Gold Production in H2 2013

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.

--  The final Rovina Valley Exploration report and full documentation of a
    mining study was submitted to the National Agency of Mineral resources
    ("NAMR") for the conversion of the Rovina Valley Exploration License to
    a Mining License. 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. 

2013 Outlook

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.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
