AM Gold Responds to Rokmaster's Notice of Commercial Arbitration

November 27, 2014

AM GOLD INC. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“AM Gold” or the “Company”) further to the Company’s news release of November 13, 2014, AM Gold announces that it is in receipt of a notice of arbitration from Rokmaster Resources Corp. (“Rokmaster”). The notice of arbitration was filed by Rokmaster in connection with matters relating to the Option and Joint Venture Agreement dated July 16, 2012, as amended, among the Company, the Company’s Peruvian subsidiary, and Rokmaster (the “Option and JV Agreement”).

As disclosed previously, Rokmaster failed to make a $400,000 payment due under the Option and JV Agreement and subsequently declared force majeure and initiated the arbitration. These tactics are, in AM Gold’s view, intended to avoid its obligations under the Option and JV Agreement and to try to coerce AM Gold into a business combination pursuant to terms dictated by Rokmaster. The Company further believes Rokmaster’s claims are attempts to shift to AM Gold blame for Rokmaster’s own operational, managerial and financial deficiencies.

AM Gold maintains that the basis for the arbitration claims is unfounded and without merit.

According to Rokmaster’s most recent Management Discussion & Analysis for the period ended September 30, 2014, Rokmaster disclosed that it had $25,749 in cash and a working capital deficiency of $1,134,412. Accordingly, it does not appear that Rokmaster currently has adequate cash on hand to comply with the terms of the Option and JV Agreement or to finance the arbitration.

As disclosed in AM Gold’s Annual General Meeting materials, AM Gold has arranged a $400,000 loan from a non-arm’s length party. Such loan is subject to a number of conditions including shareholder approval and is more particularly described in the Annual General Meeting materials, copies of which can be found under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
