Valor Gold Closes Strategic Land Deal With Paramount Gold

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - Nov 5, 2012) -  Valor Gold Corporation (OTCQB: VGLD) is pleased to announce it has closed a land purchase with X-Cal USA, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paramount Gold Inc. (PZG), consisting of three claim groups totaling approximately 3000 acres. The land package is located 26 miles south of Battle Mountain, Nevada, in the Reese River Valley, and adjoins Valor's current Red Rock project area. The acquisition increased Valor's land holdings by 40 percent to approximately 10,500 acres. This makes Valor Gold Corp one of the largest property holders in the Mountain Springs Mining District, controlling over 80% of this area. Other major land holders in this district include: Newmont Mining, Barrick Gold, and Allied Nevada.

Valor Gold paid Paramount Gold 6 million shares of Valor Gold common stock. Paramount now owns over 8% of the issued and outstanding stock in Valor Gold and has the right to nominate a director of Valor. The property is subject to a 2% net smelter royalty in favor of a third party.

Previous geological work completed on the Reese River property led to a 43-101 report issued November 14, 2006. Valor has identified several shallow drill targets for exploration.

Valor's President, Mr. Arthur Leger commented,

"This is a key acquisition that enables us to control what we feel is an unexplored gold district, located along one of the most prolific gold districts in Nevada - the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold Belt. We intend to approach this acquisition aggressively, and include it into our 2013 exploration plans."

 He continued,

"We believe with the gold targets already developed at our Red Rock project, the new land area offers an additional opportunity to discover a major gold deposit."
