Rio Novo Gold Clarifies its Disclosure

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 3, 2014) - As a result of a review by staff of the Ontario Securities Commission, Rio Novo Gold Inc. ("Rio Novo" or the "Company") (TSX:RN.TO) is issuing this news release to clarify its public disclosure.

Investor Presentation

OSC staff noted certain deficiencies in the investor presentation that was posted to the Company's website. In particular, the investor presentation: (i) failed to identify the qualified person who had prepared or approved the technical disclosure contained in the investor presentation; (ii) contained an unbalanced sensitivity analysis with respect to the economic projections for the Company's Almas gold project; and (iii) contained a non-compliant statement of mineral resources with respect to the Company's Almas gold project.

As a result of the OSC staff review, Rio Novo has removed the investor presentation from the Company's website pending an update that will reflect the current status of the Company's mineral projects and also address the concerns noted by OSC staff. The Company has also made certain changes to its website to modify or remove disclosure that raised similar issues to those identified by OSC staff in its review.

Rio Novo is in the process of updating its investor presentation and will present same to OSC staff for review prior to publication on the Company's website or otherwise, and make a further announcement when an amended presentation becomes available to the public.
