Abitex Resources Provides Corporate Update

VAL-D'OR, QC, Jan. 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Abitex Resources Inc. (TSXV: ABE) 
(the "Company"; "Abitex") provides the following corporate update to its 
shareholders: 
Write-Off of Lavoie Property
The Corporation's option agreement for the Lavoie uranium-gold property in the 
Otish Mountains of north-central Quebec called for $4M exploration 
expenditures in 2012. Abitex was unable to meet this obligation by year-end 
and is therefore in default as per the terms of the option agreement. Attempts 
to extend/modify/renegotiate the option agreement with the property owners 
were unsuccessful and the option agreement is considered rescinded. 
Consequently, the Corporation has completed a $9.5M write-off of the full 
value of the Lavoie project in its annual financial statements. Abitex retains 
its 100% interest in the Epsilon property in the same geographic area where it 
has spent almost $3M since 2008 and on which it has made several high grade 
uranium-gold discoveries. 
Annual General and Special Meeting
The Corporation's annual general and special meeting will be held February 
28(th) at the Corporation's offices in Val d'Or, Quebec. Amongst the items on 
the agenda are special resolutions submitted for shareholder approval for a 
consolidation of the shares and a change of name of the Corporation. 
The Management of the Corporation is proposing to consolidate its share 
capital. In the opinion of the Management, a consolidation of common shares of 
the Corporation on the basis of ten (10) existing shares for one (1) new 
common share is the proper action to make the Corporation more attractive to 
investors financing the Corporation's activities as well as buying securities 
either privately or on public markets. The special resolution must be approved 
by not less than two-thirds of the votes cast by the holders of Common Shares 
present in person or represented by proxy at the Meeting to be effective. If 
the Share Consolidation is implemented, the number of outstanding securities 
of the Corporation will be 9,510,943 common shares and 700,000 options to 
purchase common shares. 
The Management of the Corporation will also propose to change the name of the 
Corporation to "ABE RESOURCES INC. / RESSOURCES ABE INC." 
Management of the Corporation believes the share consolidation and name change 
are in the best interests of the shareholders and recommend to shareholders to 
vote for both special resolutions.
