Chalice prepares for fresh chapter of growth with appointment of new Managing Director

Symbol:  ASX: CHN TSX:  CXN
Shares outstanding:    250 million
Fully diluted: 255 million

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Chalice Gold Mines Limited (ASX: CHN; TSX: CXN) is pleased to announce the appointment of experienced international mining and corporate executive Mr Bill Bent as Managing Director.

Mr Bent, who joins Chalice from a senior executive role with the nickel producer Mirabela Nickel, will commence with the Company in the second half of February 2013.

At Mirabela, Mr Bent held the positions of Vice President - Business Development and Chief Development Officer responsible for exploration, investor relations, business development, growth and expansion, and technical studies. During his 2.5 years with Mirabela, he played an instrumental role in completing a comprehensive update of the original project feasibility study, refinancing the Company, ramping up operations to full production, significantly increasing the open pit resources and implementing an ongoing aggressive optimization program.

Prior to joining Mirabela, Mr Bent was a Director of Strategy with PriceWaterhouseCoopers Advisory and an Associate Director at Mainsheet Corporate for a combined period of five years, where he focused on  strategy, M&A and performance improvement, predominantly in the mining and mining services sectors in Australia.

Before moving to Australia, Mr Bent spent 12 years in the UK both as a Senior Consultant with the Corven Group in their Consulting & Corporate Finance divisions and for Genesis Oil & Gas as a Process Engineer. He was an Anglo American Bursar and started his career in Anglo's Gold Division in South Africa as a metallurgist. He holds a BSc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town and an MBA from Cranfield University in the UK.  In total, Mr Bent has 22 years of industry and consulting experience and is a Member of AusIMM and a professional engineer with the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).

Chalice's Executive Chairman, Mr Tim Goyder, said he was delighted to have secured someone of Mr Bent's calibre and broad global experience at the highest levels of the resource sector, including corporate and operational management and strategy.

"Chalice has embarked on an exciting new chapter of its growth following the recent successful sale of our interest in the Zara Gold Project in Eritrea for combined proceeds of $114 million, leaving the Company with a post-tax cash balance of $80 million."

"After completing our planned $25 million capital return in December, we will retain cash of some $55 million, putting us in a very strong position to identify and secure significant new opportunities in the international resource sector."

"At the same time, we have exciting opportunities ahead of us at our emerging Mogoraib North VHMS exploration project, located just north of the world-class Bisha Mine in Eritrea, East Africa, where recent exploration has returned some early-stage but very encouraging results indicating the potential for a large-scale VMS system."

"Progressing this discovery to the next level will be amongst our key priorities for next year, together with the identification and acquisition of new projects or opportunities with the potential to add genuine long-term value for Chalice shareholders."

Mr Goyder added. "I am looking forward to working with Bill to take the Company to the next stage of its evolution."

"I would also like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest thanks on behalf of the Board and Management to our long-serving Managing Director, Dr Doug Jones, for his enormous contribution to the Company over the past 4 years."

"Doug has been instrumental in steering the Company through the acquisition, evaluation, feasibility study and subsequent sale of the flagship Zara Gold Project in Eritrea which has put us in such a strong position in the current market. I am delighted that Doug will remain on the Board as Technical Director, focusing on the geological and technical development of the Company."
