Stock Symbol: SGF: TSX 
SASKATOON, Jan. 31, 2013 /CNW/ - George H. Read, P. Geo., Senior Vice 
President Exploration and Development of Shore Gold Inc. ("Shore" or the 
"Company") is pleased to announce that responses have been prepared for the 82 
comments and information requests on the Revised Environmental Impact 
Statement ("EIS") for the Star - Orion South Diamond Project ("the Project"), 
that were received from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment ("Ministry"). 
The responses and their required supporting documents were delivered to the 
Ministry in Regina today. The Ministry is the lead agency on behalf of the 
Province and Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency ("CEAA") is the lead 
agency for the Federal government, which are jointly conducting the 
environmental assessment of the Project. 
The original Draft EIS, submitted to the Ministry and the CEAA in December 
2010, was based on the Star - Orion South Diamond Project Pre-Feasibility 
Study ("PFS"), and generated a total of 802 comments and information requests 
from Federal and Provincial agencies and Aboriginal groups. The Revised EIS, 
based on the Feasibility Study of the Star - Orion South Diamond Project 
("FS"), incorporated responses to all the review comments and information 
requests. The Revised EIS has generated an additional 56 Federal comments and 
information requests and 82 (76 original comments and 6 comments received 
after the News Release of October 30, 2012) Provincial comments and 
information requests. Many of these comments were addressed by Shore personnel 
using existing information. A limited number of comments required further 
discussion with and additional work by consultants. Shore personnel are well 
advanced with the responses to the 56 Federal comments and information 
requests, but need to complete some new design parameters for site water 
management before the responses can be submitted to the Federal regulators. 
Once responses to all Federal comments are finalized, they will be submitted 
to CEAA. 
Senior Vice President Exploration and Development, George Read, states: "The 
completion of these responses to comments and information requests is another 
step towards a fully compliant and permitted Project. Shore is presently 
focused on the completion of all Federal and Provincial requirements for 
Project approval and subsequent permitting. Simultaneous to the ongoing 
completion of Project approval and permitting, Shore is in pursuit of 
development capital on a number of fronts." 
The Revised EIS will be released for public comment by the Saskatchewan 
Ministry of Environment when all comments and information requests have been 
resolved. The Executive Summary of the Revised EIS can be viewed on the 
company's website: www.shoregold.com. 
Shore is a Canadian based corporation engaged in the acquisition, exploration 
and development of mineral properties. Shares of the Company trade on the TSX 
Exchange under the trading symbol "SGF". 
Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements 
This news release contains forward-looking statements as defined by certain 
securities laws, including the "safe harbour" provisions of Canadian 
securities legislation and the United States Private Securities Litigation 
Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking information is often, but not always, 
identified by the use of words such as "anticipate", "believe", "expect", 
"plan", "intend", "forecast", "target", "project", "guidance", "may", "will", 
"should", "could", "estimate", "predict" or similar words suggesting future 
outcomes or language suggesting an outlook. In particular, statements 
regarding Shore's future operations, future exploration and development 
activities or other development plans constitute forward-looking statements. 
Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited 
to, assumptions that environmental approval will be attained, assumptions that 
financing will be secured, assumptions that the Star-Orion South Diamond 
Project economics will be positive as indicated in the Feasibility Study, and 
assumptions made respecting diamond price increases resulting from long-term 
supply/demand fundamentals. 
These forward-looking statements are based on Shore's current beliefs as well 
as assumptions made by and information currently available to it and involve 
inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific. 
Risks exist that forward-looking statements will not be achieved due to a 
number of factors including, but not limited to, developments in world diamond 
markets, changes in diamond prices, risks relating to fluctuations in the 
Canadian dollar and other currencies relative to the US dollar, changes in 
exploration, development or mining plans due to exploration results and 
changing budget priorities of Shore or its joint venture partners, the effects 
of competition in the markets in which Shore operates, the impact of changes 
in the laws and regulations regulating mining exploration, development, 
closure, judicial or regulatory judgments and legal proceedings, operational 
and infrastructure risks and the additional risks described in Shore's most 
recently filed Annual Information Form, annual and interim MD&A. Shore's 
anticipation of and success in managing the foregoing risks could cause actual 
results to differ materially from what is anticipated in such forward-looking 
statements. 
Although management considers the assumptions contained in forward-looking 
statements to be reasonable based on information currently available to it, 
those assumptions may prove to be incorrect. When making decisions with 
respect to Shore, investors and others should not place undue reliance on 
these statements and should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other 
uncertainties and potential events. Unless required by applicable securities 
law, Shore does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement that is 
made herein.
