VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 9, 2012) - International Tower Hill Mines Ltd. ("ITH" or the "Company") - (News - Market indicators) (NYSE Amex:THM) (FRANKFURT:IW9) ) has named Thomas E. Irwin as the Company's new Alaska General Manager at its Livengood gold project near Fairbanks, Alaska. Mr. Irwin joined ITH in March 2011 as Livengood Construction Manager with over 37 years of experience in the natural resource industry having constructed, optimized, operated and permitted major mining projects with companies such as Amax Gold and Kinross. He succeeds Karl Hanneman, who will become the Livengood Placer Manager and will oversee the Company's investigations into potential placer gold extraction in the vicinity of the Livengood deposit. A resource study is currently underway to determine the size of the placer gold deposit and it is anticipated that a subsequent Preliminary Economic Assessment will be completed in first half of 2012.

As the new Alaska General Manager, Mr. Irwin will be responsible for the management and technical direction of permitting and development of the Livengood project. Prior to joining ITH, Mr. Irwin served for six years as the Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. From 1996 to 1999, he was the Operations Manager responsible for mine start-up and operation at the Fort Knox mine located 60 miles southeast of the Livengood project and General Manager of the mine from 1999 to 2001. From 2001 to 2003, he was the Vice President, Business Development for Fairbanks Gold Mining Inc., a subsidiary of Kinross Gold, responsible for new project permitting, business development and governmental and public relations in Alaska. Prior to his work at Fort Knox, Mr. Irwin was General Manager of Amax Gold's Sleeper Mine in Nevada and manager of the Climax mine in Colorado.

In his new role as Livengood Placer Manager, Mr. Hanneman will lead the Company's investigations of the potential for near-term gold production through placer operations in the vicinity of the Livengood deposit as well as providing technical support on the Livengood gold project. Prior to joining ITH in May 2010 as Livengood Project Manager and working with Teck Resources on project development and permitting in Alaska from 1997 to 2010, Mr. Hanneman carried out extensive placer mining operations in the Livengood District dating back to the early 1990s.

"Tom's new role with the Company is in recognition of the tremendous Alaskan mining and permitting experience he brings to our team and the significant contributions he has been making to the Company since his appointment last year. We are also grateful to Karl Hanneman for his contributions to date and, given his intimate knowledge and experience with placer operations in the Livengood district, we are excited to have him oversee our investigations on this matter," said James Komadina, Chief Executive Officer of ITH. "Tom and Karl's combined expertise and experience will be invaluable to us in advancing the Livengood project towards development into a major new gold mine in North America."
