LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - Golden Phoenix Minerals, Inc. ("Golden Phoenix" or the "Company") (OTCBB: GPXM) is pleased to announce its royalty mining growth strategy will be profiled on 21st Century Business on CNBC (as paid programming) on Wednesday, January 18, 2012.

Golden Phoenix is a U.S. mining company with international exposure to gold, silver and strategic metals. The Company's business model combines project generation with royalty mining in the Americas.

Golden Phoenix's growth strategy offers the potential for exploration upside coupled with the backing of production and future royalty streams. The Company's goal (and risk reduction strategy) is to own joint venture interests in several producing mines instead of 100% exposure to one project. Management expects to replicate this strategy with multiple projects in multiple jurisdictions using multiple mine operators.

"Golden Phoenix looks forward to discussing its royalty mining growth strategy with viewers of 21st Century Business Television," stated Tom Klein, CEO of Golden Phoenix. "We believe this appearance on CNBC provides our Company with added exposure to individuals who are likely to have a growing interest in gold and precious metals."

21st Century Business is hosted by Jackie Bales. The show has been airing for 15 years. Previous hosts have included General Alexander Haig, General Norman Schwarzkopf and Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger.
