Starcore Approves Advance Notice Policy

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 22, 2013) - Starcore International Mines Ltd. (TSX:SAM) ("Starcore" or the "Company") announced today the approval by its board of directors (the "Board") of an advance notice policy (the "Policy") on November 19, 2013, which includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.

Additionally, the Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes the form in which the shareholder must submit the notice for that notice to be in proper written form.

In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. However, in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Policy is effective as of the date it was approved. With respect to the annual general meeting of the shareholders (the "Meeting") to be held on January 28, 2014, any notice delivered to the Company prior to the close of business on December 27, 2013 shall be deemed to have been timely delivered.

The full text of the Policy is available via SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com.

Further details regarding the Meeting are contained in a Management Information Circular that has been mailed to shareholders of the Company and is available on SEDAR.
