FEC Provides Corporate Update

CALGARY, Canada, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FEC RESOURCES INC. (OTCBB: FECOF, Frankfurt/Munich: FE8) ("FEC") wishes to provide the following corporate update.

­Lascogon Mining Corporation ("Lascogon")

The Company was given until December 17, 2012 to determine whether it would provide its share of a capital call for 100 million Philippine Pesos or approximately US$2,400,000.  The total work program over 2 years was estimated at approximately US$15,400,000 of which the Company's portion would have been approximately US$6,000,000

The work program was designed to test deeper targets within the MPSA 148.  Drilling was planned to test depths of 800 meters to 1,000 meters for porphyry copper and gold. Previous results from shallow drilling were not encouraging. 

The Company has decided that it is not in its best interest to meet the capital call because the project is too high risk and also because there would be a large dilution in seeking funding for the project at the current market price.

As a result of not participating, the Company will be diluted to a 1.08% interest in Lascogon. The Company is currently in discussions with Philex Mining Corporation ("Philex"), its parent company and joint venture partner, with respect to being able to buy back its percentage in the future with a penalty.

Debt Repayment

In December 2009, the Company was advanced US$273,000 by Philex. The loan was unsecured and was originally due on December 31, 2010.  The Company has now received a demand notice for the repayment of the loan.  The estimated repayment including interest is US$312,000.

Corporate Changes

Mr. Edward Tortorici has resigned from the Board of Directors of the Company.

Mr. Paul Wallace has been appointed to the Board in Mr. Tortorici's place. Mr. Wallace is a Chartered Accountant and member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.  He was appointed as the Chief Financial Officer of Hong Kong based First Pacific Company Limited from 1995 to 1997 and between 2003 and 2004.  He was appointed Group Finance Director to the Sanctuary Group plc between 2005 and 2008. Mr. Wallace was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Blue Ocean Wireless Limited in May 2009, and as a Non-Executive Director of JPMorgan Global Emerging Markets Income Trust Plc in June 2010.
