Loncor Resources Moves to Toronto Stock Exchange

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 25, 2013) - Loncor Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Loncor") (TSX VENTURE:LN)(NYSE MKT:LON)(NYSE Amex:LON) is pleased to announce that its common shares will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the symbol "LN" effective Friday April 26, 2013 and will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") at the same time. Loncor began trading on the TSX-V in December 2008 and has been listed on NYSE-MKT (formerly the AMEX market) under the trading symbol "LON" since April 2011. The Company has 73,439,732 common shares issued and outstanding.

"Moving from the Venture exchange to the TSX main exchange represents a significant milestone in Loncor's evolution and development as a Canadian resource company," commented CEO Peter Cowley. "While the Venture exchange provided an excellent place from which to launch an exploration company, we envision that the TSX listing will increase the liquidity of the Company's common shares and provide greater access to capital."

Loncor Resources is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on two key projects in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") - the Ngayu and North Kivu projects. The Company has exclusive gold rights to an area covering 2,087 sq km of the Ngayu Archaean greenstone belt in Orientale province in the northeast portion of the DRC. Loncor also owns or controls 53 exploration permits in North Kivu province located west of the city of Butembo. Both areas have historic gold production. At its Makapela project, Loncor has an Indicated Mineral Resource of 0.61 million ounces gold (2.20 million tonnes grading at 8.66 g/t Au) and on Inferred Mineral Resource of 0.55 million ounces gold (3.22 million tonnes grading at 5.30 g/t Au). Led by a team of senior exploration professionals with extensive African experience, Loncor's strategy includes an aggressive drilling program to follow up on initial known targets as well as covering the entire greenstone belt with regional geochemical and geophysical surveys. Additional information with respect to the Company's projects can be found on the Company's web site at www.loncor.com.
