TNR Gold Comments on Minera Andes Mineral Resource Increase at Los Azules Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) - TNR Gold Corp. ("TNR" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TNR) announces that it has become aware of a news release issued by Minera Andes Inc. ("MAI") on June 21, 2010 disclosing an increase in the inferred and indicated mineral resources at the Los Azules Project.

As most recently disclosed by the Company in its press release of May 17, 2010, the Company is involved in a legal dispute with MAI regarding TNR's interest in the Project. As a result, a qualified person of TNR (within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101) has not been able to verify the information disclosed by MAI, and, thus, such information should not be relied upon by TNR shareholders.

The Los Azules project is an advanced exploration project in Argentina. TNR's wholly owned subsidiary, Solitario Argentina S.A., has served notice exercising its 25 per-cent back-in right to certain of the properties comprising the Project. Solitario's right to back into the properties is the subject of a lawsuit filed by Minera Andes, and the terms of the back in right are the subject of litigation between Solitario and Xstrata.


TNR and International Lithium Corp. ("ILC") are diversified metals exploration companies focused on exploring existing properties and identifying new prospective projects globally. TNR has a portfolio of 18 active projects, of which 9 will be included in the proposed spin-off of International Lithium Corp. For further details of the spin-off please refer to TNR's May 26, 2010 news release or visit

The recent acquisition of lithium, other rare metals and rare-earth elements projects in Argentina, Canada, USA and Ireland confirms the companies' commitments to generating projects, diversifying its markets, and building shareholder value.

On behalf of the board,

Gary Schellenberg, President
