TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2012) - QUEENSTON MINING INC. (News - Market indicators)(FRANKFURT:QMI)(OTCQX:QNMNF) ("Queenston" or the "Company") announces that the final $30 million ("M") payment originally due on December 3, 2012 on the sale of Queenston's 50% interest in the Kirkland Lake JV properties to Kirkland Lake Gold Inc. ("KL Gold") (TSX:KGI) has been delayed pending transfer of title to the AK North Property.

The AK North Property forms part of a mining lease that is being renewed by Queenston. The lease renewal has been approved by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines of Ontario ("MNDM") and is awaiting final signature by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Queenston anticipates it will be signed shortly. Upon signing, the AK mining lease will be severed with the northern portion transferred to KL Gold. The severance of the lease is a condition to receiving the final $30 M payment plus accrued interest from KL Gold. Pursuant to the terms for the final payment, if receipt of the lease is delayed beyond December 3, 2012 payment is then due two business days following delivery of the AK North Property to KL Gold.

On March 28, 2012, Queenston announced the sale of its 50% interest in the properties held under Joint Venture ("JV") with KL Gold located in Teck Township to KL Gold for $60 Million ("M") cash and a royalty. Queenston received from KL Gold a $10 M non-refundable cash payment on signing with an additional $20 M cash on closing (August 30, 2012). Also on closing, Queenston received a promissory note for the $30 M balance due on December 3, 2012 that accrues interest at a rate of prime plus 2.5% per annum, secured by way of a first fixed charge and mortgage on the JV properties. Queenston will receive a royalty on gold production from the properties after the first 1.3 M ounces (oz) of gold have been produced equal to $15/oz of gold for the next 1 M oz produced and $20/oz thereafter.
