  McEwen Mining has produced very encouraging results from the new metallurgical testing from Los Azules Copper project. According to McEwen Mining, economics of the project will be improved now in the number of areas and, particularly, heap leaching will allow to process the very substantial additional low grade material from this potentialy one of the largest in the world Copper mines in the development. New PEA is under way now and this project only promises to get better with every new announced drill hole.

Catalyst: TNR Gold - McEwen Mining poised for production increase MUX, TNR.v

"Shorts are not feeling comfortable with McEwen Mining any more. Stock is forming the Double Bottom Reversal on the technical side and fundamentals should support this development further now. At the end of February the total short position was reported at the magnitude of 29 million shares, it will be the fuel to clear the 3 dollar level now. As you know, we are particularly interested in Los Azulesand TNR Gold's Back-In Right into that World Class Copper project. It will be the next Catalyst for both companies. At the moment market is pricing Los Azules at almost zero for both companies. Any positive developments over there will ignite the short covering rally in McEwen Mining and will reposition TNR Gold valuation in the market place as well.

  Things we are looking forward to: San Juan province glacier audit to be finished on Los Azules after Barrick's Pascua Lama has received green light and moved ahead. New drill results from the Northern Part of Los Azules, where TNR gold has its Back-In Right and new metallurgy tests working on the heap leaching of the lower grade Copper at Los Azules, which could increase the total amount of the recoverable copper and improve even more the economics of this project.
  Any new developments with the prospective buyers for Los Azules will change all the picture overnight. BMO is marketing the project now and we are expecting the research analysts to put their valuations on the Los Azules very soon as well. TNR Gold's Back-In Right independent research valuation could be out next. In the latest PDAC 2013 McEwen Mining presentation on the link below Los Azules Copper project is presented in its full glory and definitely deserves your attention, among other assets of McEwen Mining and TNR Gold."

It is available at and on SEDAR at TNR encourages its shareholders to read the press release issued by McEwen Mining to gain a better understanding of the work performed and the potential impacts this will have on the project.

About Los Azules 

The Los Azules copper project is located in San Juan, Argentina. It is one of the largest undeveloped copper projects in the world. The Los Azules porphyry system occurs within a belt of porphyry copper deposits known as the Andean Porphyry Belt that straddles the Chilean/Argentine border and contains some of the world's largest copper deposits.

TNR Gold retains a "back-in" right on the Los Azules project, currently 100% owned by McEwen Mining. The back-in right is for up to 25% of the equity in certain claims comprising the northern portions of Los Azules.  The right is exercisable upon the completion of a feasibility study. TNR must pay two (2) times the expenses attributable to the back in percentage (ie. Paying 2 x 25% all of the costs attributable to the claims comprising the northern portion of the property). If the Company elects to back-in for 5% or less or has its interest diluted to 5% or less, TNR will receive a net smelter royalty of 0.6%.

TNR Gold's back-in right applies to those properties subject to an Exploration and Option Agreement originally signed by Solitario Argentina S.A. (a subsidiary of TNR Gold) and M.I.M. Argentina Exploraciones S.A. on May 15, 2004 (as amended) (the "Property").

Over the past twenty-one years TNR, through its lead generator business model, has been successful in generating high quality exploration projects around the globe. With the Company's expertise, resources and industry network, it is well positioned to aggressively identify, source, explore, partner and continue to expand its project portfolio.

TNR's recently listed subsidiary, International Lithium Corp. (TSX:ILC.V), demonstrated the successful application of TNR's business model in which TNR shareholders benefited from a unit distribution upon spin-out of TNR's lithium and rare metals projects. TNR remains a large shareholder in ILC at 25.5% of outstanding shares.

At its core, TNR provides significant exposure to gold and copper through its holdings in Alaska and Argentina; and teamed with the recent acquisitions of rare-earth elements and iron ore projects in Canada confirm TNR's commitment to continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.

On behalf of the board,

Gary Schellenberg
