Gold Royalties Corporation Acquires Royalty on the Bermuda Property, Adjacent to the Marathon Deposit Property

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2011) - Gold Royalties Corporation (the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 0.5% NSR royalty on a significant portion of lands underlying the Bermuda Property located near Marathon, Ontario, Canada. The Bermuda Property is owned and operated by the Stillwater Mining Company. The royalty applies to approximately 3,286 hectares of mineral tenure.

"In acquiring an exploration royalty interest overlying a significant portion of land at the heart of the Coldwell Complex, Gold Royalties Corporation is pleased to mark its' entry into the Ontario mineral royalty marketplace. The royalty on a large segment of the Bermuda Property is a tremendous opportunity to participate in the relatively underexplored Coldwell Complex, which already shows a substantial copper-PGM deposit at Marathon. Given that an experienced NYSE-listed mining company operates this exploration property, we are very optimistic about the mineral potential of this large property. Internally, we see similarities in the Coldwell Complex that may make it analogous to other producing PGM complexes. Consequently, we are pleased to have a royalty position that overlies a significant portion of Stillwater's Bermuda Property," said Ryan Kalt, President of the Corporation.

About the Royalty Interest

The Bermuda Property

The Bermuda Property is owned and operated by the Stillwater Mining Company, which acquired the property from Benton Resources Corp. in December 2010.

The royalty acquired by the Corporation is applicable to multiple claims that cover the Coldwell Complex directionally northeast and adjacent to the property on which the Marathon deposit is located. The property is proximate to both road and power infrastructure.

The lands covered by the royalty acquired by the Corporation are additionally subject to a larger property-wide 1% NSR royalty held by Benton Resources Corp., which takes effect after more than 2.5 million ounces of Pd+Pt+Au (combined) are recovered from the entirety of the Bermuda Property.

The Corporation's new royalty is applicable to any and all recovered minerals and metals on the underlying lands without any form of production threshold. There is no royalty buy-back provision afforded to the operator with the royalty.
