(TSX Venture: AGM) ("Aldridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the filing of its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and management's discussion & analysis for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012 (the "Financial Statements" and the "MD&A", respectively).

Change of Financial Year End
The Company has changed its financial year end from November 30 to December 31, effective for the year ending December 31, 2012. The year end change was made to align the year end of the Company with the year end of its wholly-owned subsidiary Aldridge Mineral Madencilik Ltd. Şti., which is required by the laws of Turkey to have its fiscal year end on December 31. This change requires the Company to have a transition year with a thirteen month period ending December 31, 2012 with comparatives for the twelve month period ended November 30, 2011.
