VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/12 -- Teuton Resources Corp. ("Teuton") (TSX VENTURE: TUO)(FRANKFURT: TFE)(OTCBB: TEUTF) announces that it has become aware that it is named as a Defendant in the Amended Amended Statement of Claim filed November 27, 2012 in Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta in Court File Number 1201-07918, Calgary Judicial Centre ("the lawsuit") in which American Creek Resources Ltd. ("AMK"), Allan G. Burton, Darren R. Blaney, Robert N. Edwards and Kelvin J. Burton are Plaintiffs and Teuton, Dino Cremonese, Amanda Mullin, Gary Assaly, Deborah Shilling and John Does 1-64 are Defendants.

Damages of more than $135,000,000 are sought against Teuton as described below.

As against Teuton AMK seeks general damages of $50,000,000; punitive damages of $5,000,000; unspecified special damages; and costs.

Teuton is of the view that the lawsuit is without merit and will vigorously defend itself.
