Queenston Obtains Interim Order for Plan of Arrangement

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- QUEENSTON MINING INC. (TSX:QMI)(FRANKFURT:QMI)(OTCQX:QNMNF) ("Queenston" or the "Company") announces that it obtained an interim order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on November 23, 2012. The interim order provides for, among other things, the holding of a special meeting of the holders of common shares of Queenston ("Shareholders") to approve the previously announced (see Press Release November 12, 2012) arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Canada Business Corporations Act involving Queenston and Osisko Mining Corporation ("Osisko").

The special meeting of Shareholders is scheduled to be held on December 20, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. (Toronto time) at the offices of Stikeman Elliott LLP, 53rd Floor, Commerce Court West, 199 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario. The record date for determining Shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the special meeting has been fixed at the close of business on November 26, 2012.

The board of directors of Queenston has unanimously approved the Arrangement and will recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the Arrangement. As previously announced on November 12, 2012, Queenston entered into an arrangement agreement with Osisko, pursuant to which Osisko has agreed to acquire all of Queenston's outstanding common shares ("Queenston Shares"). Shareholders will receive 0.611 of a common share of Osisko for each Queenston Share held.

Each senior officer and each member of the board of directors of Queenston, holding in aggregate approximately 3% of the outstanding Queenston Shares, has entered into a voting and support agreement with Osisko pursuant to which each has agreed to vote the Queenston Shares held by them in favour of the Arrangement. In addition, Osisko has advised Queenston that certain shareholders of Queenston, holding in aggregate approximately 34% of the outstanding Queenston Shares, have also executed voting and support agreements with Osisko in which each has agreed to vote the Queenston Shares held by them in favour of the Arrangement. In aggregate, therefore, Osisko has received voting and support agreements representing approximately 37% of issued and outstanding Queenston Shares.

Queenston intends to mail the Notice of Special Meeting and Management Information Circular, together with a letter of transmittal and a form of proxy (collectively, the "Meeting Materials"), to Shareholders of record later this week. The Meeting Materials will also be available on Queenston's website at www.queenston.ca and under Queenston's profile at www.sedar.com no later than the time of mailing.

The completion of the Arrangement is subject to certain conditions, including approval by not less than two- thirds (66 2/3%) of the votes validly cast by Shareholders, present in person or by proxy at the special meeting and also by a simple majority of the votes validly cast by Shareholders, present in person or by proxy at the special meeting, other than those required to be excluded in determining such approval pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, the final approval of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and other required regulatory approvals. If all necessary approvals are obtained and the conditions to the completion of the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, it is currently anticipated that the Arrangement will be completed prior to the end of December 2012.
