TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 3, 2012) - Plato Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PGC) ("Plato" or the "Company"), an exploration company with a portfolio of properties in significant gold mining camps in Northern Ontario, Northern Québec, and Santa Cruz, Argentina reports that Threegold Resources Inc. ("Threegold") has opted to terminate its option to earn up to 75% of the Hop O'My Thumb and Vauquelin properties of Plato.

In accordance with the Option Agreement of November 15, 2010, Plato has received from Threegold, a total of $100,000 in cash payments in the past two years plus exploration expenditures on the properties.

"The current market conditions are challenging for everyone in our sector and we understand the difficult decision made by Threegold. We are pleased to maintain 100% interest in the property and are currently in discussion with other interested parties on possible option agreement with these and other claims in our Val d'Or properties. When we successfully complete our next option agreement we will be creating further value for our shareholders," said Anthony Cohen, President of Plato Gold Corp.

Plato will endeavour to continue exploration activities in the Val d'Or region either directly or via option agreements.
