THUNDER BAY, ON, Jan. 30, 2013 /CNW/ - PREMIER GOLD MINES LIMITED (TSX:PG) is 
pleased to announce that Eric Lamontagne has been retained as Manager, 
Development Projects and will lead the advancement of the Company's portfolio 
of projects. Eric brings to Premier over 14 years of experience in mine 
development and production. 
Mr. Lamontagne was most recently Project Manager for Agnico Eagle Mines 
Limited and obtained his PhD in Mine Engineering from University of Quebec and 
B.R.G.M in France. While at Agnico, Eric was Operations Manager in 
developing the Meadowbank Mine and most recently, Project Manager for the 
Méliadine Project. Prior to Agnico, Eric worked with Inmet Mining where he 
occupied various positions rising to the role of Engineering, Geology and 
Mining Superintendent. In his new position, Eric will coordinate, evaluate and 
advance Premier Gold's projects with the initial focus being the economic 
evaluation of the Trans-Canada Project, culminating in a Preliminary Economic 
Assessment (PEA). 
Premier continues to strengthen its operating team as it implements the 
Company's strategy of becoming a gold producer. In the past 12 months, 
Premier has made several key management additions including Mr. Ebe Scherkus 
as Director and Chairman, Paul-Henri Girard as Senior Mining Advisor, and 
Claude Lemasson as Director. 
"Premier remains committed to building an industry-best team with substantial 
mineral exploration and mine development experience as we implement our 
strategy to convert from explorer to developer" stated Ewan Downie, President 
and CEO of Premier. "Eric has a proven ability to provide early development 
concepts for deposits, advance projects to production, and manage mine 
operations. This experience will enhance the Corporation's ability to 
transition its portfolio of advanced-stage projects." 
2013 will see more than $30 million spent on exploration and development on 
three projects, the most aggressive budget in corporate history. Continued 
drilling and preliminary mine modeling concepts for the Brookbank and Hardrock 
deposits are being worked in advance of a planned PEA. An aggressive 
expansion and delineation drill program is planned to be completed at the Cove 
Gold Project in Nevada with an initial mineral resource estimate expected in 
late 2013. In Red Lake an accelerated underground drill program will be 
carried out from the tram development that is currently being excavated 
through the Rahill-Bonanza joint venture project.
