Goldgroup Announces Changes to Officers and Executive Management

VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Goldgroup Mining Inc. ("Goldgroup" or the "Company") (TSX: GGA) announced today that Chester F. Millar has been appointed Chairman of the Company, replacing Gregg J. Sedun as Executive Chairman.  Further to the Company's news release dated October 12, 2012 announcing Mr. Sedun as Interim Chief Executive Officer and President, the Board of Directors has now appointed the Company's Lead Director, Dr. Hans von Michaelis, to fill the role of CEO and President. Dr. von Michaelis will continue to serve on the Board of Directors. Mr. Sedun is a major shareholder of the Company and will continue to serve on the Company's Board of Directors.

Chester Millar stated, "My vision for Goldgroup is to provide strategic and visionary direction for the Company. I would like to thank Mr. Sedun for being an integral part in the development of Goldgroup and for all of his significant contributions over the past six years.  We look forward to working with Mr. Sedun as he continues to assist the Company accomplish its strategic goals as a member of the Board of Directors."

The Company also announces that Michael Clark has replaced John J. Sutherland as the Company's Chief Financial Officer.  Mr. Sutherland was a valuable member of Goldgroup's team, and the Board of Directors wishes him the best in his future endeavours.

The Executive Management changes are part of the Company's continued focus on optimizing capital and other costs.  The newly appointed Chairman and CEO will not receive remuneration.  The Company is also committed to streamlining its permitting and operational processes in order to expand gold production on a timely basis.

Chester Millar is considered one of the mining industry's most successful company builders. Mr. Millar was inducted into the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame in 2008, with a career that includes being a founder and former Chairman of such notable large and successful gold companies as Glamis Gold Ltd., Eldorado Gold Corporation and Alamos Gold Inc. Under his strategic direction, these companies were able to grow from junior exploration and early production companies to world class gold producers. Mr. Millar's illustrious career in the mining industry commenced in the 1960's when he discovered and developed the highly successful Afton Mines Ltd. open-pit, copper-gold mine near Kamloops, Canada. Afton Mines Ltd. was ultimately acquired by Teck Cominco Ltd. (now Teck Resources Limited). Mr. Millar was also Chairman of Castle Gold Corporation (acquired by Argonaut Gold Inc.) from August 2004 to September 2008, and Chairman of Pediment Gold Corp. (acquired by Argonaut Gold Inc.) from April 2008 to January 2011. Mr. Millar is a graduate from the University of British Columbia with a degree in geological engineering.

Dr. von Michaelis was appointed as Goldgroup's Lead Director on March 26, 2012. He spent two decades on innovations in extractive metallurgy of gold and silver. Dr. von Michaelis is a former director of Glamis Gold Ltd, where he was a part of the team that initiated the Glamis Gold growth program. Among other business development achievements was his introduction of the Mulatos gold project to Alamos Gold Inc. (formerly Alamos Minerals Ltd). He is currently President of Randol International Ltd., a company he founded in 1977, which provides business development services to the mining industry. Dr. von Michaelis holds a Ph.D in Geochemistry from the University of Cape Town.

Michael Clark has been with Goldgroup since May 1, 2010 as Controller and Treasurer for the Company. He was formerly the interim CFO and Controller for Grosso Group Management, which managed five publicly-listed mining companies primarily focused on exploration in North and South America.
