THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES.
San Gold Corporation (SGR.TO)(SGRCF) announced today the adoption by its board of directors of amendments to its by-laws to include advance notice provisions, the purpose of which is to require that advance notice be provided to the Company in circumstances in which nominations of persons for election to the board of directors of the Company are made by shareholders other than pursuant to the requisition of a meeting or a shareholder proposal in accordance with The Corporations Act (Manitoba).
Among other things, the by-law amendment fixes a deadline by which shareholders must provide notice to the Company of nominations for election to the board and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company for the notice to be in proper written form.

In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be made no later than the close of business on the 15th day following the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The by-law amendment is effective immediately. In accordance with The Corporations Act (Manitoba), the amendment will be subject to confirmation by shareholders at the Company's next shareholder meeting to be held on June 25, 2013.
