announces that its board of directors has approved an advance notice
policy (the "Policy") for the purpose of providing shareholders,
directors and management of Homestake with a clear framework for
nominating directors. The Policy is designed to further Homestake's
commitment to: (i) facilitating an orderly and efficient annual
general or, where the need arises, special meeting, process; (ii)

of shareholders is not less than 30 days nor more than 65 days prior
to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that in the
event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less
than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of
the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later
than the close of business on the 10th day following such public

About Homestake Resource Corporation 
Homestake owns a 100 percent interest in the Homestake Ridge project,
located in the Kitsault Mineral district in northwestern British
Columbia. The project is being advanced as a potential high-grade
underground mining operation. At a 3.0g/t AuEq cut-off and based on
drilling completed through 2010, the project contains an estimated
NI43-101 compliant Indicated Resource of 191,000oz gold and 1,350,000
oz silver (215,500oz AuEq) plus an Inferred Resource of 530,000 oz
gold and 13,470,000oz silver (775,900oz AuEq)(1) at the Main
Homestake and Homestake Silver deposits.  
To date, 251 holes were drilled for a total of 70,533 metres, and
multiple exploration targets remain to be tested on the large
2585-hectare property. Agnico-Eagle has assumed project management
under an option agreement to fund exploration and development costs
of $25.3 million over a 5-year period to earn a 65% interest in the
Homestake holds an option to acquire a 100% interest in the
623-square-kilometre Kinskuch project, located adjacent to, and to
the southeast of, the Homestake Ridge project. Diamond drilling along
the Illiance trend on the Kinskuch property during 2011 was
successful in intersecting high-grade silver/lead/zinc VMS
mineralization in three of four holes. Surface soil and rock-chip
sampling along the trend in 2012 extended mineralization to a 4.5
kilometre strike-length; Homestake will be aggressively exploring
this trend in 2013. 
Homestake owns a 10.19 percent equity interest in Bravada Gold
Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BVA) which is exploring and developing
numerous gold/silver projects in several of Nevada's prolific gold
belts. At the advance-stage Wind Mountain project, BVA has received a
positive PEA from an independent engineering company for an
open-pit/heap-leach operation. Bravada is currently conducting
additional exploration at Wind Mountain under a funding and option
agreement with Argonaut Gold Corporation.

1.  The current estimate was prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc.
    (RPA). Mineral Resources on the Main Homestake deposit were estimated
    previously in 2010 using a block model constrained by 3D wireframes of
    the mineralized zones. Mineral Resources on the Homestake Silver deposit
    were estimated in 2011 using a block model constrained by pierce points
    projected to 2D surfaces. The Main Homestake block model comprised an
    array of blocks measuring 5 m x 5 m x 5 m, with grades for Au, Ag, and
    Cu interpolated using ID3 weighting. The Homestake Silver block model
    comprised an array of blocks measuring 10m x 10m. At a 3.0g/t AuEq. cut-
    off, the models identified an indicated resource of 888,000 tonnes
    averaging 6.7g/t Au, 47.2g/t Ag and 0.15% Cu and a cumulative inferred
    resource of 4,060,000 tonnes averaging 4.3g/t Au, 158g/t Ag.
