(TSX VENTURE:IEC)(OTCQX:IEXCF)(FRANKFURT:IE6) (the "Company" or "Enexco") is pleased to announce that the Company has received an indicative term sheet ("Term Sheet") from Denison Mines Corp.

Upon the completion of a four-month hold period commencing from the date of issue, the Warrants will be subject to accelerated conversion within 30 days of Enexco disseminating a news release providing notice of same, in the event the shares of Enexco close at over $0.90 on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for 10 consecutive trading days.
"We are pleased to have Denison join us in the effort to further develop the Mann Lake project in the Athabasca Basin," stated Arnold Armstrong, President & CEO of Enexco.
Ron Hochstein, President, CEO & Director of Denison commented, "Denison is pleased to have the opportunity to make this investment in Enexco and by doing so allow Denison exposure to a very exciting exploration project in the Athabasca Basin."
The Term Sheet contemplates that for so long as Denison holds a minimum 5% interest in the issued and outstanding shares of Enexco, the Company shall cause one individual designated by Denison to be appointed to Enexco's board of directors effective upon the closing date, and Enexco will nominate for election to the board one individual designated by Denison at any meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected, provided such nominee is acceptable to the Exchange.

Enexco wishes to announce an amendment to the terms of the CDN$2,000,000 non-brokered private placement previously announced on October 10th, 2012.
The non-brokered private placement will be increased to 4,400,000 Units (inclusive of the proposed Denison investment) at a price of $0.50 per Unit for aggregate proceeds of CDN$2,200,000. Under the revised terms, each Unit will now be comprised of one common share and one half of one Warrant.
