TNR Gold Extends Bridge Loan Financing to July 1, 2013

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - TNR Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TNR) has arranged to extend the $1-million bridge loan, from one of its current shareholders, from November 30, 2012 to July 1, 2013. The loan bears interest at 8 percent per year and is secured by a promissory note, general security agreement and deed of trust over the Company's mining claims located in Alaska.

ABOUT TNR GOLD CORP.

Over the past twenty-one years TNR, through its lead generator business model, has been successful in generating high quality exploration projects around the globe. With the Company's expertise, resources and industry network, it is well positioned to aggressively identify, source, explore, partner and continue to expand its project portfolio.

TNR's recently listed subsidiary, International Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ILC), demonstrated the successful application of TNR's business model in which TNR shareholders benefited from a unit distribution upon spin-out of TNR's lithium and rare metals projects. TNR remains a large shareholder in ILC at 25.5% of outstanding shares.

At its core, TNR provides significant exposure to gold and copper through its holdings in Alaska and Argentina; and teamed with the recent acquisitions of rare-earth elements and iron ore projects in Canada confirm TNR's commitment to continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.

On behalf of the board,

Gary Schellenberg, President - TNR Gold Corp.
