SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - November 7, 2012) - International Minerals Corporation (TSX: IMZ) (SWISS: IMZ) (the "Company" or "IMZ") expects to release its financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012 (the "Current Quarter") after the close of markets on Wednesday, November 14, 2012.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2012 (IMZ's fourth fiscal quarter of the 2012 fiscal year), the Company reported a net loss of $27.7 million, which was due primarily to the net write down of $23.2 million from discontinued operations (which includes $53.2 million for the Company's Ecuador resource properties). For the Current Quarter, the Company will not incur any write downs relating to discontinued operations. Current Quarter earnings are expected to be consistent with average quarterly earnings reported before write downs for the 2012 fiscal year, which were approximately $7.0 million after tax.

During the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011 (the "Prior Year's Quarter"), the Company reported net income of $15.2 million. However, during the Prior Year's Quarter, the silver and gold price averaged $38.79 and $1,700 per ounce respectively compared to $29.91 and $1,655 per ounce respectively for the Current Quarter. As such, the Company anticipates that net income for the Current Quarter will be between 30% and 40% lower than the income reported in the Prior Year's Quarter.

All dollar amounts in this news release are reported in US Dollars, unless otherwise noted.
