North American Tungsten Reports Q3 Fiscal 2014 Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/14 -- North American Tungsten Corporation Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: NTC) ("NTC" or "the Company") announces a net loss of $0.4 million or $0.00 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 ("Q3 2014") and a net loss of $2.5 million or $0.01 per share for the nine months ended June 30, 2014. These results are substantially improved compared to a net loss of $6.3 million and a net loss of $13.7 million for the comparable periods in fiscal 2013.

The Company's June 30, 2014 Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion & Analysis thereon may be accessed under the Company's profile on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and may also be accessed at the Company's website www.natungsten.com.

The Company's production decreased to 59,877 mtus during Q3 2014, driven primarily by lower grade mill feed and metallurgical recovery. Sales revenues were $22.5 million for the quarter and $66.0 million for the nine month period. This was an increase of 7% and 15% respectively due to higher realised prices as compared to the comparable periods of fiscal 2013. There was a further significant benefit from the decline in the exchange value of the Canadian dollar.

Cash flows from operations before change in non-cash working capital were $2.7 million for Q3 2014 and $8.6 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2014, a significant improvement from an outflow of $0.3 million and $0.5 million respectively, in the comparable 2013 periods.

Kurt Heikkila, Chairman and CEO, commented, "While the overall financial results for the quarter were somewhat disappointing, we have made significant progress on the operational front. The mill enhancement project has now been substantially completed to allow us to increase our throughput in the mill by close to 25% and increase our tungsten recoveries. We believe our exploration and development drilling program will identify additional resources to extend the life of the Cantung mine. The new waste water treatment plant has been completed, commissioned and is fully operational. We are well under way with our seasonal open pit mining campaign to supplement our underground mining to support the additional mill capacity."

During Q2 2014 the Yukon Environment and Socio-economic Assessment Board ("YESAB") issued its final screening report for the Mactung Project. YESAB recommended that the Mactung Project be allowed to proceed subject to various terms and conditions. The Company now awaits a Decision Document from the Yukon Government which is expected in the near term.

Kurt Heikkila continued, "In anticipation of a near term positive decision by the Yukon Government, we are developing a strategy for the development of the Mactung deposit. We believe the learnings from a number of the initiatives we have implemented at Cantung will be valuable in developing the Mactung deposit effectively and efficiently."

Kurt Heikkila concluded, "With the support of our stakeholders, employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and debt holders, we believe NTC will continue to be a major world supplier of tungsten concentrates for years to come."

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
