MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2012) - Uragold Bay Resources Inc. ("Uragold") (News - Market indicators), is pleased to announce that Quebec's "Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune" ("MRNF") has opted to grant Uragold a 20 year Mining Lease ("Lease") rather than the large scale Bulk Sampling permit originally requested for the Rang Chaussegros claims of the Beauce Placer Gold property located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of southern Quebec.

Bulk Sampling regulations were designed for hard rock applications and limited to 50 tons. The original bulk sampling application submitted by Genivar Inc, ("Genivar") requested from the MRNF a special permit to extract 16 200 tons (9 000 m3) of gold bearing basal till for sampling and trial mining.

Due to the special characteristics of the Beauce placer deposit, the MRNF regards the gold bearing basal till found on the property to be a "mineralized sediment" and therefore not subject to Bulk Sampling regulations. A Mining Lease removes limitations as to tonnage in regards to bulk sampling, trail mining and any mining operation on the Rang Chaussegros.

The Mining Lease of the Rang Chaussegros claims will cover 1.4 km of the historical placer gold channel between the Rang Chaussegros road to the west and Saint-Gustave road to the east. From 1960 to 1962, the Beauce Placer Mining Company, using a dragline and a floating Yuba bucket lined dredging machine, mined 56,000 oz of placer gold from an eastern section of the property close to Saint-Gustave road.

Issuance of the Lease by the MRNF is conditional that Uragold completes the following additional work:

  1. A Land Survey must be done and the surveyor plans must be accepted by the "Bureau de l'arpenteur général du Québec" (Office of the Surveyor General of Quebec);
  1. A mine Closure Plan must be submitted to the MRNF:
  1. A Geological Report must be submitted to the MRNF, the Technical Report will need to detail the geology and the economic potential of the Beauce placer gold deposit.

To obtain the mining lease, Uragold has completed the additional work requested by the MRNF:

Land Survey: A Land Surveyor ("Arpenteurs Geometres") has surveyed the Rang Chaussegros claims and the Surveyors plans have been filed for approval with the "Bureau de l'arpenteur général du Québec" (Office of the Surveyor General of Quebec).

Closure Plan: A Preliminary Closure Plan was prepared by Genivar and submitted to the MRNF and the MDDEP (Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs) for approval. Based on the closure plan, the financial guarantee requested has been estimated at $95,757, which reflects the relatively benign nature of a placer gold mining operation.

A final Closure Plan must be filed prior to the commencement of mining operations. A financial guarantee of $95,757 must be provided to the MRNF by the company's to cover rehabilitation obligations under the CP as part of the final filing process.

Geological Report: Inlandsis Consultants has completed the required technical report and it will be submitted to the MRNF shortly.

Patrick Levasseur, president and COO of Uragold stated. "The MRNF's decision sets a new precedence for future placer mining projects in Quebec. Uragold is well on its way to becoming the first major placer gold mining operation in eastern North America in over 50 years."
