VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 14, 2012) - Majestic Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MJS)(FRANKFURT:A0BK1D) ("Majestic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a preliminary report of gold production from the Song Jiagou gold mine for its financial quarter ended September 30, 2012 ("Q4 2012"). Song Jiagou gold production by quarter for FY 2012 is detailed in the following table:
| Quarter || Gold Production (ounces) |
| Q1 2012 || 4,738 |
| Q2 2012 || 4,609 |
| Q3 2012 || 4,891 |
| Q4 2012 || 4,731 |

Further details regarding results of operations for the Company and its Chinese subsidiary, Yantai Zhongjia Mining Company Limited ("Zhongjia"), including revenue from gold sales and profitability, will be set out in the Company's annual management discussion and analysis and annual audited consolidated financial statements.
The Company expects gold production to increase during the next nine months toward the Company's goal of 100,000 ounces per year as Zhongjia commences to process the higher grade ore from the main ore body. Over the past four quarters, Zhongjia has processed all mined materials, including material considered waste in the Mine Plan, resulting in a mill head grade lower than the grade projected for the main ore body. This practice will be continued until the planned upgrades to the onsite assay lab have been completed. The lab improvements will include the addition of fire assay equipment and the expansion of lab facilities to allow more samples to be processed on a daily basis, resulting in more detailed and timelier information for the mine operator. These upgrades will allow the Company to implement improved grade control, resulting in higher head grades for ore delivered to the mill.
"We are very pleased with the results to date," stated Mr. Rod Husband, CEO of Majestic Gold Corp. "Annualized gold production of almost 19,000 ounces is consistent with our expectations based on our Mine Plan and indicates steady progress toward our production goal of 100,000 ounces per year when we reach the higher grade portion of the ore body."
