TNR GOLD announces the passing of director JOHN FRASER TNR.v

IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Vancouver B.C.: - It is with great sadness and regret that TNR Gold Corp. ("TNR" or the "Company") announces that John Fraser, valued Director of TNR and friend, passed away on Tuesday July 13th with his family by his side. The Board of directors, employees and consultants of TNR offer their sincere condolences to John's wife Monica and family.

During John's long and successful career in our local mining community he stood on the boards of several junior mining companies. He embodied the consummate explorationist and seamlessly wove his joy for exploration and science with a deep and unwavering social conscience. His was always the voice of encouragement, wisdom and hope. It is clear why he was a friend and mentor to so many.

On the Board of TNR John's wise counsel and dedication will be dearly missed and his sound judgment we shall continue to emulate.

Thank you John.

Services for John will be held Saturday, July 17th at Boal Chapel & Memorial Gardens, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver, BC from 1:30pm to 4:30 pm. On Sept 9, 2010 a memorial open house will be held in John's honour from 2-8 pm at the Coast Mountain Group office, Suite 620-650 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, B.C.

On behalf of the board,

Gary Schellenberg
