Liontown Reports Significant New Intersection at Jubilee Reef Gold Project in Northern Tanzania

Currie Rose Resources Inc. (the "Company") - Liontown has released the following Press Release in regard to the Company's Joint Venture in Tanzania.

Liontown Resources Limited (ASX:LTR) is pleased to report a significant new intersection from its flagship Jubilee Reef Gold Project in Northern Tanzania.

Drilling at Masabi Hill returns 88m @ 1.8g/t Au including 44m @ 3.1g/t Au

Hole JBRRC118 drilled at Masabi Hill, the most advanced prospect at Jubilee Reef intersected 88m @ 1.8g/t Au from 8m including 44m @ 3.1g/t from 24m This latest intersection follows on from a number of good results reported on the 21st November 2012 from Masabi Hill and the Panapendesa prospect located approximately 2km to the northeast.

These previously reported intersections were largely calculated on 4m composite samples and assaying of individual 1m splits has returned significant high grade results.

Better results from the 1m assaying at Masabi Hill include 4m @ 15.4g/t Au from 113m including 1m @ 46.9g/t Au from 114m (JBRRC096).

At Panapendesa better results included 11m @ 4.2g/t Au from 94m including 5m @ 8.6g/t Au from 95m (JBRRC101).

At Masabi Hill, significant mineralisation (>0.1g/t) has been defined over a 1,000 by 800m area with multiple zones of plus 1g/t gold indicated. Further work is required to determine how the intersection in JBRRC118 relates to previous results. Additional drilling is also required to determine the true widths and controls of the mineralisation which is hosted by a granitic intrusion.

Assays are pending for five RC holes (JBRRC128-132) and one RC hole (JBRRC133) drilled at Masabi Hill and Panapendesa respectively to follow up intersections reported in the 21st November announcement.

Drilling has now ceased for the year at Jubilee Reef due to the onset of the wet season. Total drilling in 2012 comprised 93 RC and 125 aircore holes for 11,387m and 5319m respectively, with drilling since inception of the Project in mid 2011 totalling 22,296m.

The 2013 work program at Jubilee Reef will be planned once all assays have been received and processed from the drilling in 2012.
