NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Toronto, Ontario - February 28, 2013 - Takara Resources Inc. ("Takara" or the "Company") announces that the closing of the sale of the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, StrataGold Guyana Inc., to Alicanto Minerals Limited, an Australian company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, has been re-scheduled to occur on or before April 1, 2013.
The Company has been advised that Alicanto is required to obtain shareholder approval for the acquisition, which cannot be completed prior to the original closing date of February 28, 2013. The parties have therefore agreed to extend the date for closing, and in consideration for this extension, Alicanto has agreed to immediately pay Takara an additional $45,000 as an advance against the purchase price. Additionally, Alicanto continues to assume all ongoing costs to maintain StrataGold's operations in Guyana, South America.
