Argosy Minerals Inc. Files Form 15F to Deregister in the USA; Under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 29, 2010) - Argosy Minerals Inc. (ASX:AGY) ("Argosy") today announced that it has filed a Form 15F with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") with the intention of voluntarily terminating the registration of its common shares under section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"). Argosy expects that this termination of registration will become effective 90 days after its filing with the SEC. As a result of this filing, Argosy's reporting obligations with the SEC, including its obligations to file annual reports on Form 20-F and reports on Form 6-K will immediately be suspended.

Argosy will continue to comply with the Canadian continuous disclosure obligations by making filings with the applicable Canadian securities regulators via the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at and with the Australian Stock Exchange (the "ASX"). Argosy's common shares will continue to be listed and trade on the ASX under the symbol ("AGY").

Argosy is current with its reporting requirements under the Exchange Act, but its common shares have never been listed, traded or quoted on any stock exchange in the United States.

In determining to terminate the registration of its common shares under the Exchange Act, Argosy considered that administrative burdens and costs associated with being a US reporting company and the time and costs associated with preparing US filings and meeting SEC regulatory requirements far outweigh the benefits derived from Argosy's registration with the SEC.
