  Southern USA Resources, Inc. Reports on Mining Equipment as Company Prepares
  Gold Production for 2013

Business Wire

ASHLAND, Ala. -- January 24, 2013

Southern USA Resources, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC BB: SUSA), a natural
resource exploration and development company, today reports on its mining
equipment that has been established on the Company’s flagship property, SUSAR
No. 1. The Company has been running its equipment and making modifications to
prepare for its gold production for 2013.

The Company’s primary processing equipment includes a Gator 42” X 16” portable
jaw crushing plant with a 16 ft. grizzly feeder and a 42” discharge conveyor,
Gardner Denver 18” X 18” pulverizer, Tyler 4’ X 8’ multi deck wet screen, and
Oro Industries custom mobile wash plant with custom rougher spiral gold
separator machine. Combined, the processing equipment has the potential to
process up to 75 tons of material per hour for approximately 10 hours a day,
for 5 days a week.

Once the ore is mined from the land, the material is loaded to a hopper, which
then drops the material into the grizzly feeder, then into the Gator crusher
that has a maximum 180 ton running capacity. The crushed material then passes
through the Tyler wet screening machine, pushing particles through a 30”
centrifuge, a continuous slurry feed concentrator that “batches” the
concentrate during the run process. The internal chambers of the centrifuge
fill up with lighter material (less than ¼”), which form soft fluidized
"beds". As the heavier concentrate enters the centrifuge, it displaces the
lighter material and anything larger than ¼” in size will return to the
pulverizer and back to the centrifuge and finally the material passed through
the custom built finalizing plant, resulting in approximately 90-99% recovery
of gold. Since no process other than crushing is involved in the recovery of
gold, high-grade construction sand will be produced as a by-product and the
Company intends to add a revenue stream from the sale of its graphite

The Company has also leased heavy equipment including a hydraulic excavator,
L110 wheeled loader, and 1850L three-toothed ripper crawler bulldozer, a 6X6
30 yard Volvo articulating dump truck and a Tamagotchi skid steer.

“We have been taking the last few weeks and fine-tuning our processing
equipment, so that we may recover gold as seamless as possible, as we go into
full production. We are excited about the opportunity to potentially recover
more gold than historically recorded in the area and place Alabama back on the
map as a gold producing state here in the U.S.,” commented Charles H.
Merchant, Sr., CEO of Southern U.S.A. Resources, Inc.
