("CMH") announced that on January 4, 2013, Michelle Navarro Grau, Thessa Navarro Grau and Rafael Navarro Grau (the "Subscribers", and together with CMH, the "CMH Group") acquired 18,456,000 common shares ("Common Shares") and 5,000,000 common share purchase warrants ("Warrants") of Batero Gold Corp ("Batero") upon the conversion of subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") of Batero. As previously announced, on December 13, 2012, the Subscribers acquired by means of private placement: (i) 8,913,000 Common Shares at a price per share of $0.65, and (ii) the 18,456,000 Subscription Receipts at a price per Subscription Receipt of $0.65 (the "Private Placement"). The Subscription Receipts were convertible, without any further action by the Subscribers, into an aggregate 18,456,000 Common Shares and 5,000,000 Warrants upon satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including, among others, the approval of the shareholders of Batero to the creation of a new "control person" (as such term is defined by the policies of the TSXV) upon the conversion of the Subscription Receipts. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.90 per share at any time until the date that is 36 months from the date of the issuance of the Subscription Receipts. The Private Placement was affected pursuant to the previously announced subscription agreement dated November 28, 2012 entered into among the Subscribers, CMH and Batero.

Immediately following the issuance of the 18,456,000 Common Shares and the 5,000,000 Warrants upon the conversion of the Subscription Receipts, the Subscribers may be considered to have beneficial ownership of, and control and direction over, directly or indirectly:

i.  an aggregate 31,634,000 Common Shares (including 4,265,000 Common Shares
    beneficially owned, or over which control or direction, direct or
    indirect, was exercised by the Subscribers prior to completing the
    Private Placement), or approximately 35.0% of the Common Shares
    outstanding at such time; or 
    
ii. an aggregate 38,134,000 Common Shares, or approximately 39.4% of the
    Common Shares that would have be outstanding at such time assuming the
    issuance of all 6,500,000 Common Shares for which the Warrants may be
    exercised.  

1,500,000 of the Warrants that the Subscribers beneficially own, and over which they exercise control or direction, directly or indirectly, were acquired prior to completion of the Private Placement and will expire on April 26, 2014.
