Veris Gold Corp. Announces Adoption of Advance Notice Policy
Vancouver, BC  – January 28,  2012 – Veris Gold Corp. (TSX:  VG) (OTCQB: YNGFF) 
(Frankfurt Xetra Exchange: NG6A) (“Veris” or the “Company”) announced today the approval 
by its board of directors of an advance notice policy (the “Policy”) on January 28, 2013, which 
Policy, among other things, includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Company in 
circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the board of directors are made by 
shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a “proposal” made in accordance with 
Division 7 of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Act”); or (ii) a requisition of 
the shareholders made in accordance with section 167 of the Act.
Among other things, the Policy fixes a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of 
Veris must submit director nominations to the Secretary of the Company prior to any annual or 
special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the specific information that a shareholder must 
include in the written notice to the Secretary of the Company for an effective nomination to 
occur.  No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in 
accordance with the provisions of the Policy.
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not 
less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, 
that in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 65 days after 
the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, 
notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public 
announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to 
the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the 
day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Policy is effective and in full force and effect as of the date it was approved.  In accordance 
with the terms of the Policy, the Policy will be put to shareholders of the Company for approval 
at the next Annual General Meeting (“AGM”), and if the policy is not confirmed at the meeting by 
ordinary resolution of shareholders, the Policy will terminate and be of no further force and 
effect following the termination of the AGM.
