TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Energizer Resources
Inc. (TSX:EGZ)(OCTBB:ENZR)(FRANKFURT:YE5) ("Energizer" or the
"Company") announces that the National Instrument (NI) 43-101
Technical Report for its Molo graphite project in Madagascar has now
been filed and that the release of the Preliminary Economic
Assessment ("PEA") is on track for February 2013. Energizer is
pleased to announce that it has retained GMP Securities Europe LLP
("GMP") to act as the Company's financial advisor with respect to
advancing the Molo graphite project to the next stage of development. 
Molo NI 43-101 Resource Estimate  
The Company delivered a NI 43-101 on the Molo deposit in November
2012, which can now be accessed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. This
mineral resource estimate exceeded Company expectations and consisted
of the following; 


 
--  Indicated resources totaling 84.04 Million tonnes (Mt) grading 6.36% C,
    above a 2% C cut-off grade. 
 
--  Inferred resources totaling 40.34 Mt grading 6.29% C, above a 2% C cut-
    off grade. 
 
--  Mineralized zones in the resource estimation start from the surface and
    continue to a maximum depth of 385 metres and remain open along strike
    and at depth. 
 
--  Two "High Grade" zones occur on the western and eastern flanks of the
    Molo deposit, with a combined total indicated resource of 60.17 Mt,
    grading 8.1% C, above a 4% C cut-off grade. 

 
PEA Study to be Released February 2013  
The next milestone for the Company will be the release of its PEA
expected in February 2013 and will outline the economic parameters
(capital and operating expenses) for the development of the Molo
graphite mine. DRA Mineral Projects ("DRA"), Africa's leading mine
engineering, construction and operations company, is leading the
delivery of the soon-to-be-released PEA.  
This PEA will provide Energizer the platform to move forward and
establish the necessary strategic business alliances for project
financing, graphite off-take arrangements and marketing of the
Company. Discussions with strategic partners continue to be ongoing
and the Company expects to provide updates in this area in the near
future.  
GMP to Advise Energizer for Next Stage of Mine Development  
GMP will provide the Company with guidance in evaluating strategic
alternatives for financing the next stage of development, which will
be the initiation of a Bankable Feasibility Study ("BFS") for the
Molo graphite project.  
Craig Scherba, P.Geo., President and Chief Operating Officer of
Energizer Resources commented that: "With a NI 43-101 resource
estimate in hand, followed shortly with the results of our PEA, we
are now fast-tracking to the BFS. We are pleased to have GMP
assisting us in this important next step in our project's
development. This partnership will further increase the exposure of
our Molo graphite project to potential investors in Europe and other
key investor markets."
