Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in Pretium Resources, Inc. to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Pretium Resources, Inc. ("Pretium Resources" or the "Company") (NYSE: PVG) of the December 24, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Pretium Resources and certain executives.

A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased Pretium Resources securities between January 19, 2011 and October 21, 2013 (the "Class Period") in the Southern District of New York.

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Pretium Resources issued false and/or misleading statements regarding the Company's gold estimates.

On October 9, 2013, Pretium Resources announced that Strathcona Mineral Services Ltd. ("Strathcona"), one of the world's leading providers of consulting services to the mining industry in Canada and internationally, had resigned from one of the Company's projects.

On October 22, 2013, prior to the market open, Pretium Resources announced that before it resigned, Strathcona had noted that it had found "no valid gold" resources.

Following this news, the Company's stock declined $1.27 per share, or over 27%, to close at $3.36 per share on October 22, 2013.
