Lone Star Gold, Inc. Announces $15M Investment Agreement Now Effective and Plans to Commence On-Site Processing Plant Construction

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Lone Star Gold, Inc. (OTCBB: LSTG) ("Lone Star" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the effectiveness of its Form S-1 dated December 20, 2012, which outlines the details of the Company's $15 million common-stock-purchase investment agreement with Deer Valley Management, LLC (see more details about the "Deer Valley Investment Agreement" further below).

Lone Star intends to raise capital through the Deer Valley Investment Agreement commencing January 2013. In particular, the Company will commence construction as soon as possible on its own on-site processing plant at its Tailings Project near the city of Hidalgo Del Parral in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. The processing plant will further enhance Lone Star's ability to maximize the silver and gold content per ton of shipment from the project's 1.2 million tons of mine tailings. The plant will use the relatively new benign nitrogen leaching pile process. In Q3 2012, the Company's team in Mexico completed a preliminary leach plant development plan, which includes a processing capacity of 1,000 tons per day (tpd) while avoiding the use of cyanide and having minimal environmental impact. Leach testing has also been completed, which determined that no additional crushing of the tailings material is required and that expected recovery will be between the 88-90% range.

The Company expects the on-site processing plant to be operational within 3-4 months following access to the necessary funding through the Deer Valley Investment Agreement.

Lone Star's President, Daniel Ferris, commented: "We want to thank Deer Valley in bringing the $15 million Deer Valley Investment Agreement. We are now looking forward to a very active first few months of 2013 culminating in concentrate sales possibly commencing in April 2013."

DEER VALLEY INVESTMENT AGREEMENT DETAILS

By way of background, on April 30, 2012, Lone Star entered into an investment agreement with Fairhills Capital Offshore Ltd. ("Fairhills"). Under the agreement, Fairhills committed to purchase up to $15,000,000 of Lone Star's common stock over a period of up to 36 months. From time to time during the 36 months period, Lone Star may deliver a put notice to Fairhills, stating the dollar amount it intends to sell to Fairhills on a date specified in the put notice.

On November 12, 2012, Fairhills entered into an assignment and assumption agreement with Deer Valley Management, LLC ("Deer Valley"), pursuant to which Fairhills transferred and assigned all rights and obligations under the investment agreement to Deer Valley (the "Deer Valley Investment Agreement"). Fairhills and Deer Valley have common ownership and management. As outlined in Lone Star's Form S-1 filing, the Company may raise capital through the Deer Valley Investment Agreement as needed for current running costs, general operating expenses and capital expenditures related to Lone Star's Tailings Property and Candelaria Project, and, in particular, the construction of the nitrogen leach plant on Lone Star's Tailings Property. Further details of the Deer Valley Investment Agreement are available in Lone Star's Form S-1 filing from December 20, 2012.
