Great Western Minerals Group Corporate Update

TSX Venture Symbol: GWG              CUSIP: 39141Y 10 3 OTCQX: GWMGF

SASKATOON, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. ("GWMG" or the "Company", TSX:V - GWG) is pleased to provide an update on issues pertinent to the Company's progress and status.

Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"): GWMG had previously set January 2013 as a target date to issue a news release highlighting the results of a PEA as well as an updated National Instrument 43-101 Resource Estimate (the "Resource Estimate"). The Resource Estimate was issued in January ( see GWMG news release January 21, 2103 ).

The Company now estimates that the PEA will be completed and the results released prior to the end of the 1st Quarter of 2013, as GWMG's new Chief Executive Officer and his senior management team are gathering additional metallurgical testing and capital expenditure data in order to properly evaluate the options available in the context of the expanded Resource Estimate.

Less Common Metals ("LCM"): The relocation of U.K.-based LCM from its Valley Road location in Birkenhead to its new facility at Hooton Park in Ellesmere Port is now virtually complete. The new facility houses LCM's first strip casting furnace with provision for substantial expansion. All equipment that had been in operation at the Valley Road site, including the analytical laboratory, has been relocated to Hooton Park and is now fully operational.

LCM continues its evaluations of the new strip cast furnace capabilities with its customer base.  Sampling has been undertaken for all key customers and LCM is progressing into advanced stages of commercial supply contract / technical approval stages.
