SALA I Upholds Tribunal Decision

Trading Symbol: TSX-V: IG

CALGARY, Nov. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - Infinito Gold Ltd. (the "Company") announces that the Administrative Law Chamber of the Supreme Court of Costa Rica ("SALA I") has rendered its decision and rejected the request for annulment ("Casación") of the sentence (the "TCA Ruling") imposed by the Tribunal Contencioso Administrativo ("TCA") on November 24, 2010, in respect of the Company's gold mining permits and the Costa Rican permitting procedures for the Crucitas gold project.

The TCA Ruling annulled the Exploitation Concession of the Company's Crucitas gold project and invalidated, among other things, the original approval of the environmental impact study received in December of 2005 during the Abel Pacheco presidency, the amended environmental impact study received in February of 2008 and the Presidential Decree declaring the project to be in the national interest received in October of 2008.

The decision by the SALA I appears to conflict with the decision reached by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Costa Rica (SALA IV) in April of 2010 that confirmed the validity of IISA's Exploitation Concession and approvals.

The Company is reviewing the impact of the SALA I ruling with respect to the ruling of the SALA IV, its debt facilities and their related covenants and the impact this may have on the future presentation of its financial statements.
