TNR Gold Shareholders will finally get to cash in on Giant Los Azules Copper Project.

TNR Gold Corp. and McEwen Mining Inc. Agree to Convert
TNR’s Back in Right to a NSR on the Los Azules Copper Project, Argentina

Vancouver, B.C. October 17, 2014, TNR Gold Corp. (the "Company" or “TNR) (TSX VENTURE:TNR.V ) announces that it has entered into a transfer agreement (the “Transfer Agreement”) with McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE:MUX, TSX:MUX) ("McEwen") pursuant to which the Company will convert all of rights and interests (the “E&O Agreement Rights”)  under a Cordon de Los Azules Exploration and Option Agreement dated effective as of May 15, 2004, as amended April 26, 2005 and November 8, 2012, including its 25% back-in right (the “Back-In Right”) in the northern portion of the Los Azules Copper Project (the “Project”) in San Juan Province, Argentina.  The Back-In Right is exercisable following the completion of a feasibility study and if the Company elected to back-in for 5% or less or had its interest diluted to 5% or less, TNR would receive a net smelter royalty of 0.6% from the northern portion of the Project (see TNR News Release November 12, 2012).
In exchange for TNR converting the E&O Agreement Rights, McEwen will:
 (1) cause its  wholly owned Argentinian subsidiary, Andes Corporacion  Minera S.A. (“Andes”) to enter into a net smelter royalty agreement with Compania Minera Solitario Argentina S.A.  (“Solitario”), an Argentinian company controlled by TNR,  pursuant to which Andes will pay Solitario a 0.4% net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) in respect of the entire Project;

(2) issue TNR 850,000 common shares; and

(3) pay TNR 1% of any purchase price paid to and received by McEwen in respect of any sale, assignment of transfer of all of its interest in the Project, to a party other than to an affiliate of McEwen, on or before the third anniversary of the Transfer Agreement.

The Company believes converting the E&O Agreement Rights are in the best interest of its shareholders because it clarifies the ambiguity surrounding the details of the Back-In Right and the conditions under which the Back-In Right can be exercised.

Gary Schellenberg, President and CEO of TNR commented, “We have noted significant confusion in some of our shareholders regarding the particulars of the Back-In Right. It is the goal of TNR, through its lead generator business model, to advance toward the royalty ownership model as our projects, identified at an early stage of exploration, are advanced toward development by joint venture partners. This latest agreement with McEwen now completes the process for the Los Azules Project.”

 “We are very pleased to reach this agreement with McEwen. I would like to thank Rob McEwen personally for his efforts to work with us to find an amenable solution to simplify the Back-In Right at Los Azules. I am confident this transaction will facilitate the advancement of the Los Azules Project. Los Azules is a unique, long-life, copper mining opportunity in Argentina. Recent acquisitions which include the Las Bambas copper mining project in Peru acquired by Minmetals Group from China and the Taca Taca copper deposit in Argentina acquired by First Quantum Minerals Ltd. confirm there is significant value to be realized for projects in this region. TNR Gold now carries an industry standard NSR on the entire Los Azules project which also allows McEwen Mining to facilitate further strategic transactions with this Project and I believe the shareholders of TNR will benefit as the Project advances through the feasibility stages,” commented Mr. Kirill Klip, Non-Executive Chairman of TNR.


The Los Azules copper deposit is located in the San Juan province of Argentina. McEwen is the current operator on the Los Azules copper deposit and the Company has previously advised that on May 15, March 28, and March 13, 2013, McEwen Mining Inc. issued press releases in relation to the deposit, which are accessible on SEDAR at and on McEwen Mining Inc.’s website at
McEwen's press releases appear to be prepared by Qualified Persons and the procedures, methodology and key assumptions disclosed therein are those adopted and consistently applied in the mining industry, but no Qualified Person engaged by TNR has done sufficient work to analyze, interpret, classify or verify McEwen's information to determine the current mineral reserve or resource or other information referred to in their press releases. Accordingly, the reader is cautioned in placing any reliance on the disclosures therein.


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 recently reported an inferred mineral resource at the Shotgun Gold project in Alaska containing 20,734,313 tonnes at 1.06 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold for a total of 705,960 ounces gold (“Au”) using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off (see news release dated 22 April 2013).
TNR is also a major shareholder of International Lithium Corp. (TSX:ILC.V) (“ILC”), a company created by TNR to advance its internationally acquired lithium prospects. TNR currently holds about 25.5% of the outstanding shares of ILC.
At its core, TNR provides significant exposure to gold and copper through its holdings in Alaska and Argentina and is committed to continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.
John Harrop, PGeo, FGS, is a "Qualified Person" as defined under NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.

Mason Graphite CEO "pleased" with new drill results

Mason Graphite Reports High Grade Intercepts from Infill Drilling in the GC Zone, Including 27 Meters at 40.3 % Cg, and Announces the Appointment of a New Director of Sustainable Development

Mason Graphite Inc. ("Mason Graphite" or the "Company") (TSX.V: LLG; OTCQX: MGPHF) is pleased to report the second batch of assay results from the 2013-2014 drilling program at its Lac Guéret project in northeastern Quebec. The drill program consisted of 97 holes totaling 15,108 metres and was designed to pursue three objectives:

to explore for mineral extensions to the North-East and beyond the defined resource envelope of the GC Zone (18 holes totaling 2,085 metres) – Results previously reported in the press release dated July 29, 2014;
to explore for mineral continuity within the defined resource envelope of the GC Zone (68 holes totaling 11,323 metres); and
to conduct exploration drilling on graphite showings on the property located beyond the areas where drilling had previously been conducted (11 holes totaling 1,700 metres).

This press release reports assay results from drilling conducted in the GC zone. The remaining drilling results will be reported in upcoming communications.

Results Confirm Presence of High Grade Areas in the GC Zone

"We are very pleased that these new results confirm the continuity of the mineralization within the GC zone. Furthermore, we continue to obtain high graphite grades, which supports our belief in the exceptional quality of the Lac Guéret property. These latest results will be combined with those from the North-East extension to update our resource estimate, which is expected to lead to the upgrade of the resource categories and to also allow for the optimization of the mining plan during our Feasibility Study.” said Benoit Gascon, President and CEO of Mason Graphite.

Drilling was performed in a quincunx pattern, with new holes drilled roughly in the middle of four (4) existing holes, resulting in an average distance of 35 metres between holes. The former drilling followed a grid pattern, with average spacing of 50 x 50 metres.

Intercept highlights from drilling conducted inside the PEA open pit envelope in the GC Zone include:

Hole LG-403 intersected 76 metres at 27.5 % Cg, including 38 metres at 39.3 % Cg;

Lomiko Metals drilling for more Graphite in Quebec

Drill Permit Issued for Lomiko's La Loutre Crystalline Flake Graphite Property in Quebec 
 by Marketwire

Lomiko Metals Inc. ("Lomiko") (TSX VENTURE: LMR)(PINKSHEETS: LMRMF)(FRANKFURT: DH8B) and Canada Strategic Metals Inc. ("Strategic Metals" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CJC)(FRANKFURT: YXEN)(OTCBB: CJCFF) are very pleased to announce that a drilling permit for the La Loutre Crystalline Flake Graphite Property has been issued which allows for up to 29 drill holes. On September 23, 2014 Lomiko optioned 40% interest in the La Loutre Crystalline Flake Graphite Property located in Quebec last month. A full set of results was reported in that news release.

The goal of the exploration program is to identify high-grade, near-surface graphite mineralization suitable for conversion to battery-grade graphite. The graphite industry could see exponential growth based on new demand for lithium-ion batteries, which use 10 to 15 times as much graphite as lithium.
Telsa Motor Cars and Panasonic announced a new Lithium-ion Giga-factory in Nevada which is estimated to double the yearly supply of Li-ion batteries by 2020. Currently, synthetic graphite with consistent carbon purity of 99% or more is used in Li-ion batteries. This effects the graphite market in two ways. One, the price of synthetic graphite is likely to increase based on increased demand for all graphite products. Two, if a natural, cost-effective source of consistently high carbon purity graphite is derived from a property, groups such as Telsa could use the material directly in their batteries.

Of particular interest to Lomiko was an area of the property which reported grab samples up to 22.04% Carbon Flake Graphite (CFG) and Carbon Purity Test results reporting up to 100.00% Carbon Purity in the Large and Extra Large Flake Graphite. 

Graphite grab sample assay results derived from a recent sampling and mapping program on the has confirmed a graphite bearing structure covering an area approximately 7 kilometers by 1 kilometer with results of up to 22.04% graphite in multiple parallel zones of 30-50 meters wide. Another area has also been identified covering approximately 2 kilometers by 1 kilometer in multiple parallel zones of 20-50 meters wide which includes results up to 18% graphite. Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent the average grade of a deposit. The drilling program is designed to test these areas.

Rodinia Lithium Raises US$440,000 With Sale Of Certain Non-Core Assets

Toronto, Ontario, September 17, 2014: Rodinia Lithium Inc.  (“Rodinia” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: RM), has entered into a sale agreement with a private Argentine borate mining company to sell 600 hectares of mining rights comprising a portion of the Salar de Centenario (“Centenario”) property, held by the Company.  In exchange for the sale of a 100% interest in the mining rights comprising the 600 hectares of Centenario, Rodinia will receive US$440,000 payable in 22 monthly installments of US$20,000.   The sale agreement helps strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and does not impact Rodinia’s flagship Salar de Diablillos property. 

William Randall, President & CEO, commented, “The sale of the Añatuya & El Quevar claims that formed part of the Centenario group of claims helps strengthen the Company’s financial position, as we expect these monthly payments to cover the entirety of our fixed costs in Argentina, including on-site processing work and maintenance, overhead, and other associated local office costs associated with our flagship property.”

The first payment under the sale agreement has been received, and future payments are expected to be received by the Company on the first week of each month over the next 21 months.  The sale of the Añatuya and El Quevar claims reduces Rodinia’s Centenario property interest to approximately 500 hectares.  The Company has previously completed preliminary exploration on the Centenario claims and determined that in light of the quality and size of its Diablillos resource, continued advancement of Diablillos would create greater shareholder value than work at Centenario.  As a result, future work at Centenario was not anticipated in the foreseeable future and the Company determined that its sale would best support the Company’s current needs.

About Rodinia Lithium Inc.:
Rodinia Lithium Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company with a primary focus on Lithium exploration and development in Argentina.  The Company is also actively exploring the commercialization of a significant Potash co-product that is expected to be recoverable through the lithium harvesting process.
