Geodex Shareholders Approve Sale of Sisson Project Interest

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2012) - Geodex Minerals ("Geodex") (TSX VENTURE:GXM)(FRANKFURT:G2W) announces that the sale of its 30% interest in the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project in New Brunswick, Canada has been approved by its shareholders at the special meeting held June 18.

As announced on April 18, 2012, Geodex agreed to sell its 30% interest in the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project to Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff") (TSX:NCF), its joint venture partner on the project. The consideration is comprised of 16,003,700 common shares of Northcliff, $1 million in cash and the return to Geodex for cancellation of 3,333,333 Geodex common shares that Northcliff purchased in 2010. The Northcliff common shares received by Geodex will be distributed to its common shareholders by way of a reduction of capital and on the basis of 0.145 Northcliff shares for each Geodex share owned, as previously announced. This process means there will be no tax consequences to the Geodex shareholders as of the date of distribution, however shareholders are advised to seek tax advice for their specific situations. June 28, 2012 and July 4, 2012 have been established as the record and distribution dates, respectively, for the Northcliff shares.

Northcliff shareholders approved the transaction at a meeting held May 30. The acquisition remains subject to final TSX and TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Jack Marr, Vice President of Exploration, commented, "The sale of the Sisson transaction marks the end of a significant chapter of Geodex's development story through the period 2004 to 2012. It has been marked by the acquisition of an exploration stage tungsten-molybdenum deposit that Geodex successfully drilled and developed. The Sisson Project is now recognized as one of the world's largest tungsten deposits and is located in a top-tier mining jurisdiction."

Jack Maris, Chairman, said, "Geodex played a significant role in further establishing New Brunswick as a province with an important critical metal endowment. Since 2004, the Geodex share price has seen significant gains and also has retreated to relatively low levels after 2008 amid continued global economic uncertainty. The ownership by Geodex shareholders of Northcliff shares plus Geodex shares will provide two clear assets. One will have continued exposure to the Sisson Project advancement through the Northcliff shares. A second will be continued exposure to potential exploration success as Geodex has achieved several times already in New Brunswick."
