Exploration Licenses Renewed at Inter-Citic's Dachang Gold Project

Dachang Main Zone licenses reconfigured to facilitate permitting.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2012) - Inter-Citic Minerals Inc. (TSX:ICI)(OCTQX:ICMTF) ("Inter-Citic" or "the Company") President and CEO James Moore, is pleased to report that three key exploration licenses have been renewed at the Company's Dachang Gold Project, in addition to the combination of two other licenses covering the Dachang Main Zone in order to facilitate permitting.

The Ministry of Land and Resources (MOLAR) of the People's Republic of China has granted a further two year extension of three exploration licenses at the Dachang Gold Project, covering approximately 173 square kilometers. The renewal is effective immediately and is valid until November 25, 2013, when it will be eligible for further renewal.

In addition, the Company asked for and received from the Chinese Government a re-drawing of the boundaries of the remaining two exploration licenses within the property area to facilitate permitting of the Dachang Main Zone ("DMZ"), which hosts most of the Company's current NI 43-101 compliant inferred mineral resource estimate and is planned for open pit mine development. The overall area of these licenses remains unchanged at approximately 106 square kilometers.

The 279 square kilometer Dachang Gold Project is now comprised of four licenses, all of which have been renewed successfully by Inter-Citic as they have come due in the past.

On Behalf of the Board:

James J. Moore, President & CEO
