December 18, 2012

VANCOUVER, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – China Gold International Resources
Corp. Ltd. (TSX: CGG); (HKEx: 2099) (the “Company”) has been certified
ISO 9001 (quality), ISO14001 (environmental care), and OHSAS18001
(occupational health and safety) by the United Kingdom Accreditation
Service, the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand,
and China’s main recognition institution, the China National
Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment.

“These three certifications validate CGG’s commitment to quality,
safety, and the environment,” said Mr. Xin Song, the Company’s CEO.
“The CGG team has successfully managed the audits, consultation,
training and detailed improvements needed to build a quality management
system which meet the high international standards required to obtain
these certifications. This achievement, on behalf of the Company, is
reassuring to our shareholders and employees and gives us a benchmark
from which to continuously make improvements.

The company began working towards the ISO 9001, ISO14001, and OHSAS18001
certifications in October 2011. In September 2012, the Beijing
Zhongshui Brilliant Certification Co. Ltd and Guardian Independent
Certification Ltd. completed a joint inspection in the Company’s
headquarters in Beijing, along with the CSH gold mine site and Jiama
copper-polymetallic mine site. By October 31, 2012, the Company
addressed all the issues identified by the third party consultants and
successfully passed the domestic and international certifications.

Mr. Xin Song said, “China Gold International’s management team along
with China National Gold’s Operating Management Department and
Environment Protection and Safety Department provided strong support
and guidance throughout the certification process. Subsidiaries of the
Company, Inner Mongolia Pacific Mining Co. Ltd. and Huatailong Mining
Limited, which own and operate the CSH Mine and Jiama mine
respectively, were also actively involved in the process. The speed
with which the Company developed and certified this high quality
management system reflects the efficiency of the Company’s employees
and management.”

The Company will conduct an annual internal and external review with the
commitment to continuously improve its management system and internal
control mechanisms.
