Commenting on these results, Chantal Lavoie, President and CEO of the Company said, "The fourth quarter results continue to support Crocodile Gold's growth objectives. I am pleased to announce that the Company has achieved its production guidance with 155,000 ounces produced in 2012 and cash costs in line with forecasted figures. I believe that we have now built a stable base upon which to profitably grow gold production. We expect production in 2013 to exceed 2012 levels by 10%-15% as Cosmo enters into commercial production in the first quarter of 2013 and as we move other new projects forward."

Financial Discussion

Crocodile Gold has posted revenues of $101,770,213 for the fourth quarter of 2012 on gold sales of 59,541 ounces, a sequential increase of 26% over the third quarter gold sales of 47,121 ounces.

The mine operating earnings in the fourth quarter were $12,410,636 compared to $7,028,408 for the third quarter, an increase of 77%. The cash cost per ounce of gold sold in the fourth quarter was $998 per ounce sold, compared to $1,176 per ounce sold in the third quarter. Cash costs have been positively impacted by strong gold sales and contained operating costs with average annual cash costs of $1,167.

Cash generated from operations for the fourth quarter was $39,143,792, up 20% from $32,511,747 in the previous quarter. The increase in cash from operations was driven by strong gold production, a robust gold price environment and diligent cost management.

The Company used $30,460,554 for investing activities during the fourth quarter, which include $24,499,905 for underground development and resource definition at Cosmo and Fosterville and $5,338,902 for the purchase of plant and equipment, which related largely to infrastructure at Cosmo as it ramps up to commercial production. Other cash expenditures during the fourth quarter included $1,734,512 in equipment loan repayments and $2,471,448 to settle gold swap transactions entered into in conjunction with the company's credit facility with Credit Suisse.

The Company is in the process of preparing its detailed financial statements, which will be audited and released as part of the Company's audited Annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012, together with the accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis, which will be filed on SEDAR by April 2, 2013.

(i) Crocodile Gold acquired, and accounted for, the Fosterville and Stawell 
gold mines with effect from May 5, 2012. Information presented prior to this
date is for comparative purposes only.                                      

Operational Discussion

At the Cosmo Mine, development and production ramp-up continued, with an average of 575 meters of development per month. Stoping activities continued to increase during the quarter, resulting in total underground ore production of 105,824 tonnes, up from 97,359 tonnes in the third quarter and 57,070 tonnes in the second quarter. Mill production was supplemented by 113,446 tonnes of lower grade stockpiles resulting in total throughput of 225,055 tonnes at a grade of 1.95 g/t Au. Mill recovery was 90.7%, resulting in gold production of 12,829 ounces, up from previous quarter's production of 7,356 ounces as a result of higher throughput and continued strong recoveries.

The Fosterville Gold Mine produced 193,096 tonnes from the underground during the quarter at a grade of 4.92 g/t Au, compared to 176,036 tonnes in the third quarter at a grade of 4.7 g/t Au. Ore mined was supplemented by open pit material and total mill throughput in the fourth quarter was 207,838 tonnes at 4.92 g/t Au, compared to 183,854 tonnes at 4.68 g/t Au in the previous quarter. Fourth quarter gold production totaled 26,650, up 17% from 22,857 in the previous quarter, due to higher tones at better grades. Mill recovery was 83.8%, a 2% improvement from the prior quarter.

The Stawell Gold Mine continued with its transition plan that will see underground activities being completed in 2013. Ore mined for the fourth quarter was 209,849 tonnes at 4.13 g/t Au, compared to 201,789 tonnes at 2.81 g/t Au in the previous quarter. The average grade showed improvement as production was focused on stoping in the higher-grade GG6 area. Mill throughput of 218,485 was down 3% from the previous quarter, although strong grades and a mill recovery of 89.2% resulted in gold production of 22,669, up from 15,750 ounces in the third quarter. Capital development is now complete and remaining planned production will require minimal ore development.

Financial Position

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had a cash balance of $24,741,357 compared to $20,383,957 at the end of the third quarter. The net working capital deficiency at December 31 was $14,483,909, compared to a net working capital deficiency of $24,839,259 at September 30.

The working capital deficiency is impacted by the valuation of the derivative liability based on the gold price forward curve at quarter end. However, forward gold prices are not reflected in the valuation of current assets, such as in inventory, which continue to be carried at cost and do not reflect the eventual increased value realized through the sale of gold. The Company believes that macroeconomic factors will continue to support a strong gold price in the near to mid-term, enabling the Company to continue to generate strong cash flow from operations.

Outlook

The 2012 financial results presented herein are preliminary in nature and unaudited. They have not been reviewed by the Company's auditors. Additional details of the fourth quarter will be provided in the Company's audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 and accompanying management discussion and analysis, which will be filed on SEDAR by April 2, 2013.

The Company is presently finalizing its three and five-year Strategic Business Plan. The Strategic Business Plan aims to prioritize those growth initiatives with the highest return on invested capital. The Company is in the final stages of analyzing each of its growth projects and expects to communicate its longer-term capital allocation strategy, including which projects the Company will advance and when, with the release of fourth quarter earnings.

Cautionary Notes

Results are Preliminary and Unaudited

The financial results for the period ended December 31, 2012 presented herein have been prepared by and are the responsibility of the Company's management. As of the date of this press release, the results are considered preliminary because they have not been audited and the Company's independent auditor has not performed a review of these results in accordance with standards established by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.

Non-GAAP Measures

Crocodile Gold believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. The indicators are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

"Cash cost per ounce" is a non-GAAP performance measure that could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness at the operations. It is determined by dividing the operating expenses, excluding stock-based compensation allocated to operating expenses and net of silver revenue, by the number of ounces of gold sold. There are variations in the method of computation of "cash cost per ounce" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. The following is a reconciliation of the cash cost per ounce of gold sold, to the reported operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, September 30, June 30 and March 31, 2012:
