Marketwired

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2012) - Gold Royalties Corporation (GRO.V) ("Gold Royalties") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire its 10th and 11th royalty assets in Canada (the "Assets"), represented by a 2% net smelter return royalty on the Justin gold project and a 2% net smelter return royalty on the Hit gold project (the "Transaction"). The Assets will be acquired from Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (EPL.V)("Eagle Plains") for consideration of $500,000, payable through the issuance of 625,000 common shares of Gold Royalties (the "Gold Royalties Shares") at a deemed price of $0.80 per Gold Royalties Share (the "Share Consideration"). Closing of the Transaction, which is expected to occur on or about October 5, 2012, is subject to certain conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").

"Expanding our royalty portfolio with the acquisition of net smelter return royalties on the Justin and Hit gold projects will secure exploration exposure to two new Yukon gold projects as well as future advance royalty payments from both royalties. Our ability to acquire new gold royalty assets using equity is clear evidence of growing adoption and confidence by Canada's mining community in the value of our royalty portfolio. We look forward to enabling other parties to participate in Gold Royalties through royalty asset contribution," stated Ryan Kalt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gold Royalties.

In a sign of confidence in Gold Royalties, Eagle Plains has agreed to a contractual escrow period whereby the Share Consideration will be subject to escrow for a period of two years.

As announced on September 18, 2012, Gold Royalties has entered into a royalty acquisition agreement with Franco-Nevada Corporation (the "Franco-Nevada Agreement"). Pursuant to the terms of the Franco-Nevada Agreement, Gold Royalties has retained the right to acquire the Assets in full for its own account.
