VANCOUVER, Feb. 21, 2013


VANCOUVER, Feb. 21,  2013 /PRNewswire/  - Corvus  Gold Inc.  ("Corvus" or  the 
"Company") - (TSX:  KOR, OTCQX:  CORVF) announces  the signing  of a  purchase 
agreement for the surface of five patented mining claims owned by Mr. and Mrs.
Gordon Millman and located east of  the Mayflower deposit. The newly  acquired 
area facilitates shorter overburden haul distances, which is expected to  have 
further positive impacts  on Mayflower mining  economics. Ownership of  these 
surface rights also improves access to the Mayflower project area and  overall 
project design flexibility.

Carl Brechtel, COO of Corvus, stated: "The acquisition of the Millman property
and the earlier  reported increase  in gold recoveries  are further  continued 
enhancements of the  Mayflower project over  that which was  presented in  the 
Company's December 2012  PEA. These latest  developments, along with  further 
advances in the Company's  North Area project,  show significant potential  to 
increase gold recovery,  increase mineralized  tonnage and  grade, and  reduce 
both capital and mining costs. This exciting work by Corvus is anticipated to
culminate in the development of a highly attractive new Nevada gold mine".

Terms of the Purchase

Corvus Gold Nevada Inc. (a wholly owned Nevada subsidiary of the Company)  has 
agreed to  purchase the  surface  rights for  the  subject property  from  the 
Millmans for USD 160,000, payable on closing. The terms also include  payment 
by Corvus Nevada of a fee  of USD 0.02 per ton  of overburden to be stored  on 
the property, subject to payment for a  minimum of 12 million short tons.  The 
minimum tonnage  fee (USD  240,000)  bears interest  at  4.2% per  annum  from 
closing and  is evidenced  by  a promissory  note due  on  the sooner  of  the 
beginning of production  or December  31, 2015. The  purchase transaction  is 
expected to close within 30 days.

About the North Bullfrog Project, Nevada

Corvus controls 100% of its North Bullfrog Project, which covers approximately
68 square kilometres in  southern Nevada just north  of the historic  Bullfrog 
gold mine formerly  operated by Barrick  Gold Corp. The  property package  is 
made up  of a  number of  private mineral  leases of  patented federal  mining 
claims, 758 federal unpatented mining claims and surface rights. The  project 
has excellent  infrastructure, being  adjacent to  a major  highway and  power 

The project currently  includes numerous  prospective gold  targets with  four 
(Mayflower, Sierra Blanca, Jolly Jane and Connection) containing an  estimated 
Oxidized Indicated Resource of 27 Mt at an average grade of 0.28 g/t gold  for 
246,810 ounces of gold and an Oxidized  Inferred Resource of 234.5 Mt at  0.18 
g/t gold for 1,387,870 ounces  of gold (both at a  0.1 g/t gold cutoff),  with 
appreciable silver credits. Unoxidized  Inferred mineral resources are  221.6 
Mt at 0.19 g/t for 1,361,000 ounces of gold (at a 0.1 g/t gold cutoff).

Mineralization occurs in two primary forms: (1) broad stratabound bulk-tonnage
gold zones  such  as  the  Sierra  Blanca and  Jolly  Jane  systems;  and  (2) 
moderately thick zones of high-grade gold and silver mineralization hosted  by 
structural zones with breccias and quartz-sulphide vein stockworks such as the
Mayflower and Yellowjacket  targets. The  Company is  actively pursuing  both 
types of mineralization.

and  2010  winter  drilling   is  available  on   the  Company's  website   at

the Company  believes that  such statements  are reasonable,  it can  give  no 
assurance that such  expectations will prove  to be correct.  Forward-looking 
statements are  typically  identified  by  words  such  as:  believe,  expect, 
anticipate, intend, estimate, postulate and similar expressions, or are those,
which, by  their  nature,  refer  to  future  events.  The  Company  cautions 
investors  that  any  forward-looking  statements  by  the  Company  are   not 
guarantees of  future results  or  performance, and  that actual  results  may 
differ materially from  those in  forward looking  statements as  a result  of 
various factors,  including, but  not limited  to, variations  in the  nature, 
quality and quantity of any mineral  deposits that may be located,  variations 
in the market price of any mineral products the Company may produce or plan to
produce, the Company's inability to obtain any necessary permits, consents  or 
authorizations required for its activities, the Company's inability to produce
minerals from  its  properties successfully  or  profitably, to  continue  its 
projected growth,  to raise  the necessary  capital  or to  be fully  able  to 
implement its business strategies, and other risks and uncertainties disclosed
in the Company's latest interim  Management Discussion and Analysis and  filed 
with certain securities commissions in Canada. All of the Company's  Canadian 
public disclosure filings may  be accessed via and readers  are 
urged to review these  materials, including the  technical reports filed  with 
respect to the Company's mineral properties.

Cautionary Note Regarding References to Resources and Reserves

National Instrument 43 101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI
43-101") is a rule developed  by the Canadian Securities Administrators  which 
establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of  scientific 
and technical  information  concerning  mineral  projects.  Unless  otherwise 
indicated, all resource estimates contained in or incorporated by reference in
this press release  have been prepared  in accordance with  NI 43-101 and  the 
guidelines set  out  in  the  Canadian Institute  of  Mining,  Metallurgy  and 
Petroleum (the  "CIM") Standards  on Mineral  Resource and  Mineral  Reserves, 
adopted by the CIM Council on November 14, 2004 (the "CIM Standards") as  they 
may be amended from time to time by the CIM.

United States shareholders are cautioned that the requirements and terminology
of NI 43-101 and the CIM Standards differ significantly from the  requirements 
and terminology of  the SEC  set forth  in the  SEC's Industry  Guide 7  ("SEC 
Industry  Guide  7").  Accordingly,   the  Company's  disclosures   regarding 
mineralization may  not  be comparable  to  similar information  disclosed  by 
companies subject to SEC  Industry Guide 7.  Without limiting the  foregoing, 
while the terms "mineral resources", "inferred mineral resources",  "indicated 
mineral  resources"  and  "measured  mineral  resources"  are  recognized  and 
required by NI 43-101 and  the CIM Standards, they  are not recognized by  the 
SEC and  are not  permitted to  be used  in documents  filed with  the SEC  by 
companies subject to SEC  Industry Guide 7. Mineral  resources which are  not 
mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability, and US investors
are cautioned not to assume  that all or any part  of a mineral resource  will 
ever be converted  into reserves.  Further, inferred resources  have a  great 
amount of uncertainty  as to their  existence and  as to whether  they can  be 
mined legally or economically. It cannot be  assumed that all or any part  of 
the inferred resources will ever be  upgraded to a higher resource  category. 
Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the
basis of a feasibility study or  prefeasibility study, except in rare  cases. 
The SEC normally only permits issuers  to report mineralization that does  not 
constitute SEC Industry Guide 7  compliant "reserves" as in-place tonnage  and 
grade without reference to unit amounts.  The term "contained ounces" is  not 
permitted under the rules of SEC Industry Guide 7. In addition, the NI 43-101
and CIM Standards definition of a "reserve" differs from the definition in SEC
Industry Guide 7. In SEC Industry Guide 7, a mineral reserve is defined as  a 
part of a mineral deposit which could be economically and legally extracted or
produced at the time the mineral reserve determination is made, and a  "final" 
or "bankable" feasibility study is required to report reserves, the three-year
historical price is used  in any reserve or  cash flow analysis of  designated 
reserves and the primary environmental analysis  or report must be filed  with 
the appropriate governmental authority.

Caution Regarding Adjacent or Similar Mineral Properties

This news release  contains information  with respect to  adjacent or  similar 
mineral properties in respect of which  the Company has no interest or  rights 
to explore  or  mine.  The  Company advises  US  investors  that  the  mining 
guidelines of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") set  forth 
in the  SEC's Industry  Guide 7  ("SEC Industry  Guide 7")  strictly  prohibit 
information of  this  type in  documents  filed  with the  SEC.  Readers  are 
cautioned that the Company has no interest in or right to acquire any interest
in any  such properties,  and that  mineral deposits  on adjacent  or  similar 
properties are not indicative of mineral deposits on the Company's properties.

This press release is not, and is not to be construed in any way as, an  offer 
to buy or sell securities in the United States.
