Coronet Signs Agreement to Re-Process Gold Tailings

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2011) - Coronet Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CRF) ("Coronet" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Coronet Metals Peru S.A.C ("Coronet Peru") has entered into a non-binding agreement with Compañía Minera Nueva California S.A. to evaluate re-processing up to 950,000 tonnes of vat leach gold tailings in Peru.

This project is located in the Rio Santo Valley 16 km below Coronet's Yanamina Project where the Company's experienced team of Peruvian social specialists is engaging with the local communities. As well as meeting cash flow objectives, the tailings project would give Coronet the opportunity to demonstrate social, environmental and employment best practices in the area.

Mr. Joel Dumaresq of Coronet states: "This low-capital project could move Coronet into gold and silver production with the objective of generating sufficient free cash flow to cover the Company's overhead. The contractors are already permitted and completion of due diligence is targeted for Q1, 2012. The personnel operating out of Coronet Peru's office have the technical and metallurgical expertise to develop this project".

The Company is currently evaluating two advanced‐stage projects that meet its acquisition criteria. The Company anticipates additional updates in the coming months regarding these acquisition targets.
