Victoria’s Eagle Gold Project Approved by Yukon Environmental Assessment Board

February 19, 2013, Toronto: Victoria Gold Corp. (VIT.TSX-V) (“Victoria” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board (“YESAB”) has concluded its environmental assessment and issued a Final Screening Report. The Final Screening Report recommends that the Government of Canada and Yukon Government allow the Eagle Gold Project to proceed.

“The importance of the Final Screening Report should not be underestimated as it positions Victoria to embark on the next significant phase toward Eagle production.” commented John McConnell, President & CEO. “Over the past year we have progressed detailed engineering, assembled a project build team and advanced negotiations on project financing to ensure we would be ready to begin construction in 2013.”

Victoria first submitted a Project Proposal, initiating the environmental assessment process, in December 2010. Over the past two years YESAB has consulted with the general public, First Nations, Yukon Government, Federal agencies and Victoria’s permitting team to assess the environmental and socioeconomic effects of an economically robust project while maintaining strict environmental and safety standards. The Eagle Gold Project planning and assessment process has benefitted from the existing Comprehensive Cooperation and Benefits Agreement (“CBA”) between the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun and Victoria.

The completion of the Final Screening Report will result in the issuance of Decision Documents by the Governments of Canada and Yukon. Subsequently, Victoria expects Yukon Government to issue a Quartz Mining License, which would allow for the start of construction.
