Reunion Gold Provides an Update on its Activities

LONGUEUIL, CANADA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RGD)(FRANKFURT:RG7) (the "Company") announces that it has filed its audited consolidated financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the year ended March 31, 2014 on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and provides an update on its Matthews Ridge manganese project located in Guyana.

During the financial year, the Company released the results of a pre-feasibility study ("PFS") for its Matthews Ridge Project and entered into a memorandum of understanding with National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd. setting out the terms under which the parties will collaborate to evaluate the potential development by the Company of a silico-manganese plant in Trinidad and Tobago. The Company retained the services of consulting firms to assess the viability of reducing the output of the Matthews Ridge Project and converting the manganese concentrate into silico-manganese alloys in Trinidad and Tobago. The results of these studies should be available by September 30, 2014.

Subject to the results of the ongoing studies and available financing, the Company's focus during the balance of the year will be to carry out essential work for the full feasibility study of the Matthews Ridge Project, including completing additional drilling, if deemed necessary, on the Matthews Ridge footprint area and at other surrounding prospects.

At March 31, 2014, the Company had a working capital of $0.9 million, excluding loans from related parties. The Company will require additional funds to carry out its activities and to this effect, the Company is evaluating various financing alternatives, including the issuance of equity, debt financing, partnership or joint venture arrangement, or other means. There can be no assurance that additional funds will be available or available on terms acceptable to the Company.
