Ryan Gold Corp. Announces Shutdown of Yukon Operations and Change in Business Strategy

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2013) - Ryan Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RYG) ("Ryan Gold" or the "Company") announces that, given generally poor market conditions for exploration companies, the Company will conserve its cash, and cease exploration activities in the Yukon. Exploration completed over the last several seasons means that the core claims will remain in good standing for a number of years. The Company will seek joint venture opportunities to advance its Yukon projects, particularly Ida Oro, its most advanced stage project.

Going forward, the Company plans to evaluate assets for junior mining companies that are more advanced than its Yukon projects. The Company presently has approximately $20 million in working capital, which the Company will seek to deploy into projects or investment opportunities that have become available because of current poor market conditions.

The Company also announces the filing of the unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial results for the Company for the third quarter ending September 30, 2013. The full version of the financial statements and the management discussion and analysis can be viewed on the Company's web site at www.ryangold.com or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Company regularly reviews the carrying amounts of its non-financial assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. Mineral property interests are tested for impairment when facts and circumstances suggest that the carrying amount of the mineral property interests exceed their recoverable amounts. The Company has no present plans for further exploration on either the Ida Oro or Quartz Claims Properties, and has no 2014 money budgeted for Yukon exploration. Therefore it has written down its mineral property interests to zero as at September 30, 2013. The non-cash loss attributable to this impairment is $24,552,464. The Company also recorded an impairment on its vehicles and field equipment of $466,063 due to the cessation of exploration activity in the Yukon.
