About Almaden 
Almaden is a well-financed (cash, gold inventory and equity
investments totalling approximately $31 MM as of January 15, 2012)
mineral exploration company working in North America. The company has
assembled mineral exploration projects, including the Ixtaca Zone and
the Tuligtic project, through its grass roots exploration efforts.
While the properties are largely at early stages of development they
represent exciting opportunities for the discovery of significant
gold, silver and copper deposits as evidenced at Ixtaca. Almaden's
business model is to find and acquire mineral properties and develop
them by seeking option agreements with others who can acquire an
interest in a project by making payments and exploration
expenditures. Through this means the company has been able to expose
its shareholders to discovery and capital gain without the funding
and consequent share dilution that would be required if the company
were to have developed these projects without a partner. The company
intends to expand this business model, described by some as prospect
generation, by more aggressively exploring several of its projects
including the Ixtaca Zone. 
Cautionary Note concerning estimates of Indicated and Inferred
Mineral Resources: 
This news release uses terms that comply with reporting standards in
Canada and certain estimates are made in accordance with Canadian
National Instrument NI 43-101 ("NI 43 101"). NI 43 101 is a rule
developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators that establishes
Canadian standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of
scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects.
These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and mineral resource
information contained herein may not be comparable to similar
information disclosed by United States companies. 
This news release uses the terms "indicated mineral resources" and
"inferred mineral resources" to comply with reporting standards in
Canada. We advise United States investors that while such terms are
recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the SEC does not
recognize them. United States investors are cautioned not to assume
that any part or all of the mineral deposits in such categories will
ever be converted into mineral reserves under SEC definitions. These
terms have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and
great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility.
Therefore, United States investors are also cautioned not to assume
that all or any part of the "indicated mineral resources" or
"inferred mineral resources" exist. In accordance with Canadian
rules, estimates of "inferred mineral resources" cannot form the
basis of feasibility or other economic studies. 
It cannot be assumed that all or any part of the "indicated mineral
resources" or "inferred mineral resources" will ever be upgraded to a
higher category.

those with respect to potential expansion of mineralization,
potential size of mineralized zone, and size and timing of
exploration and development programs, estimated project capital and
other project costs and the timing of submission and receipt and
availability of regulatory approvals involve known and unknown risks,
uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results,
performance or achievement of Almaden to be materially different from
any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied
by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among
others, risks related to international operations and joint ventures,
the actual results of current exploration activities, conclusions of
economic evaluations, uncertainty in the estimation of mineral
resources, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be
refined, environmental risks and hazards, increased infrastructure
and/or operating costs, labour and employment matters, and government
regulation and permitting requirements as well as those factors
discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in Almaden's Annual
Information form and Almaden's latest Form 20-F on file with the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C.
Although Almaden has attempted to identify important factors that
could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other
factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or
intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove
to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ
materially from those anticipated in such statements. Almaden

forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information,
