Reunion Gold Initiates Scoping Study for Production of Silico-Manganese Alloy

LONGUEUIL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RGD) ("Reunion or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has recently retained Worley Parsons to conduct a scoping-level study to assess the parameters relating to the possible development of a silico-manganese plant that would be located in Trinidad and Tobago. G Mining Services Ltd. has also been retained to combine the results of the Worley Parsons' scoping study with the results of the July 2013 pre-feasibility study related to the production of manganese concentrate from the Matthews Ridge Project located in northwest Guyana, South America.

As previously announced, the Company has signed a memorandum of understanding with National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd. setting out the terms under which the parties will collaborate to evaluate the potential development by Reunion of a silico-manganese plant in Trinidad and Tobago. In addition to its proximity to Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago offers numerous benefits including competitive power costs, deep sea port facilities, dedicated areas for industrial projects and proximity to silico-manganese markets.

The Company anticipates releasing the results of a preliminary economic assessment of the combined studies, including various output scenarios, by the end of Q1 2014.
