IMC Exploration Group Plc IMC Exploration Group Plc :Independent Study Suggests Multiple Sources for Gold Mineralization

4(th)December 2012 
                           IMC Exploration Group Plc 
                            ("IMC" or the "Company") 
     Independent Study Suggests Multiple Sources for Gold Mineralization 
IMC Exploration Group plc (IMC) is pleased to announce results from a study by 
Dr Norman Moles from the University of Brighton undertaken in order to further 
understand the nature of gold mineralization intersected during recent drilling 
in Prospecting Licence ("PL") Area 2551, County Wexford, Ireland, suggests 
multiple sources for gold mineralization in this prospecting licence area. 
The form of the gold grains recovered from the Ballygarrett Stream was studied 
by Dr Moles' team, with more detailed studies using Scanning Electron Miscrosopy 
(SEM) to follow.  The range of sizes and angularity of abundant gold grains 
recovered in the lower reaches of the Ballygarret Stream suggests a nearby 
upstream bedrock source of gold-bearing vein type rather than disseminated 
bedrock gold mineralization.  In contrast, grains from an upstream site have a 
similar size range but are angular to sub-angular, indicating a longer transport 
distance.  In conclusion, gold grains recovered from the Ballygarrett Stream 
suggest a range of transport distances supporting interpretation that the 
Ballygarrett Stream appears to cut across multiple sources of gold. 
Based on these results, IMC are continuing their focus in the area with further 
drilling adjacent to the Ballygarrett Stream.  Elsewhere in PL Area 2551, 
sluicing has recovered many placer gold grains from rivers in the Kilmichael 
area; these will also be studied by SEM. 
Dr Glenn Millar commented "This is excellent news as the gold in PL Area 2551 
may well be concentrated in local vein pockets rather than being disseminated, 
so giving us the potential for multiple high grade drill targets."
