Solid first quarter production and cash costs and hedge book eliminated.

-- Consolidated profit for the first quarter of 2013 was $45.0 million ($0.18 per share), compared to a loss of $2.1 million ($0.01 per share) in the same prior year period.-- Gold production for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased 63 percent to 68,301 ounces of gold compared to the same prior year period.-- As of April 15, 2013, the Company is 100 percent hedge free.-- Total cash costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased 18 percent to $535 per ounce sold compared to the same prior year period.-- The Company's cash balance at March 31, 2013 increased to $57.4 million, including $6.4 million in bullion receivables.-- The company signed a long-term comprehensive Agreement in Principle with the Republic of Senegal in early April which sets out a predictable and stable fiscal operating environment for the Company's future investment in exploration, acquisitions and development to increase reserves and production.-- Gold production for 2013 is on track to be in the range of 190,000 - 210,000 ounces at total cash costs of $650 to $700 per ounce in line with 2013 guidance.(1)



(1) Total cash costs per ounce sold is a common financial performance measure in the gold mining industry but has no standard meaning under IFRS. For a definition of this metric, please refer to page 11 of the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis.

"Sabodala had another strong quarter, providing the foundation for a solid year. Beyond Sabodala, the Agreement in Principle signed between the Company and the Republic of Senegal paves the way for us to invest and develop in order to increase our reserves and production in Senegal for the long-term. Our ability to leverage off our existing mill and infrastructure should allow us to increase reserves, production, earnings, cash flow and free cash flow in the coming years," said Alan R. Hill, Executive Chairman.

Financial Highlights (details on Page 5)

-- Gold revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $113.8 million compared to $60.5 million in the same prior year period, an increase of 88 percent. The increase in gold revenue was mainly driven by higher gold sales.-- Consolidated profit attributable to shareholders of Teranga for the first quarter of 2013 was $45.0 million ($0.18 per share), compared to a loss of $2.1 million ($0.01 per share) in the same prior year period. The increase in profit and earnings per share were primarily due to an increase in gross profit from an increase in revenues and a significant loss on gold hedge contracts in the prior year.-- Operating cash flow for the first quarter of 2013 was $23.6 million compared to $35.9 million in the same prior year period. The decrease in operating cash flow was mainly due to delivery of 45,289 ounces into the hedge book during the first quarter of 2013 and the timing of working capital receipts and payments.-- Capital expenditures were $22.2 million for the first quarter of 2013, which was $9.3 million lower than the same prior year period. The decrease in capital expenditures was mainly due to higher expenditures in 2012 related to the mill expansion which was completed in second quarter 2012, partially offset by higher capitalized deferred stripping expenditures in first quarter 2013.-- The Company's cash balance at March 31, 2013 increased to $57.4 million, including $6.4 million in bullion receivables.-- During the first quarter of 2013, the average realized gold price was $1,090 per ounce with 45,289 ounces delivered into gold hedge contracts at an average price of $806 per ounce and 24,378 ounces sold at an average spot price of $1,619 per ounce. During the same prior year period, 35,268 ounces were sold at an average price of $1,712 per ounce.-- The gold forward sales contracts declined by 45,289 ounces during the first quarter 2013 to 14,500 ounces at March 31, 2013. As of April 15, 2013, the Company is 100 percent hedge free after having bought back the remaining "out of the money" gold forward sales contracts.-- During the first quarter of 2013, the Company entered into a new $50 million finance lease facility with Macquarie Bank Limited ("Macquarie"). The lease facility replaces the finance lease facility previously in place with Societe Generale ("SocGen"), which was assigned and novated to Macquarie. The proceeds will be put towards additional equipment for the Sabodala pit as well as the new equipment required for the Gora deposit that is currently being permitted. In total, $22.7 million was outstanding at March 31, 2013, including $10.5 million novated from SocGen during the quarter. A further $4.3 million will be drawn down in the second quarter when final delivery of Sabodala equipment is received. The balance of $23 million will be reserved for future drawn downs for purchases of mining equipment, as required.



"Now that we have eliminated the hedge book, our realized gold price should rise as we sell 100 percent of our production at spot gold prices. The higher realized gold price should result in higher cash margins and cash flows to further strengthen our balance sheet in 2013 and beyond. The free cash flow generated from Sabodala is expected to fund our growth initiatives through both exploration and consolidation," said Richard Young, President and CEO.

Operating Highlights (details on Page 5)

-- Gold production for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased 63 percent to 68,301 ounces of gold compared to the same prior year period due to the processing of higher grade ore combined with higher mill throughput as a result of the completion of the mill expansion.-- Gold sold for the three months ended March 31, 2013 increased 98 percent to 69,667 ounces compared to the same prior year period. Ounces sold during the first quarter were slightly higher than production for the period due to a draw-down of gold in circuit inventory. At March 31, 2013, gold in circuit and gold bullion inventory amounted to 11,883 ounces.-- Total cash costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased 18 percent to $535 per ounce sold compared to the same prior year period. While gross mine site costs increased 35 percent due to higher mining and processing rates, the decrease in total cash costs per ounce was mainly due to higher gold ounces sold and higher capitalization of production phase stripping costs. Total cash costs have been adjusted for the adoption of IFRIC 20 for capitalization of a portion of production phase stripping costs.-- Total tonnes mined for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were 19 percent higher compared to the same prior year period due to the increase in hauling and drilling capacity of the mining fleet during 2012 and first quarter 2013.-- Ore tonnes mined were 17 percent higher compared to the prior year period while grades mined were 36 percent higher resulting in an increase in ounces mined of about 60 percent.-- Mining rates are expected to decrease by about 2 percent in the second quarter through the balance of the year despite the commissioning of 3 haul trucks and 1 shovel as the Company lowers its mining rate to maximize free cash flow in 2013 but maintain production guidance.-- Unit mining costs for the quarter were 3 percent higher than the prior year period, mainly due to higher costs for blasting consumables enabling better fragmentation for processing.-- Ore tonnes milled for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were 21 percent higher than the same prior year period due to an increase in mill capacity as a result of the completion of the mill expansion in the second quarter of 2012.-- Transfer chute design upgrades and the addition of more durable liners in the high wear points through the plant commenced with a comprehensive planned shutdown in January 2013, with further work to continue during planned shutdowns in both the second and third quarters 2013. These changes are anticipated to help reduce the frequency and duration of unplanned downtime allowing the design targets to be achieved. Crusher operating time is the key to meeting design target throughput rates.-- Unit processing costs for the three month period ended March 31, 2013 were 31 percent higher than the same prior year period mainly due to higher power generation cost due to a higher power demand associated with the increased milling capacity, higher maintenance costs associated with the planned January shutdown to improve crusher operating time, and higher consumption of grinding media required for the processing of a lower ratio of soft to hard ore blend.-- Unit general and administration costs for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were higher compared to the same prior year period mainly due to a buildup in manpower.2013 Revised Guidance ------------------------------------- Revised Guidance Original GuidanceOperating results Production (oz) 190,000 - 210,000 190,000 - 210,000 Total cash costs (incl. royalties)(1, 2) ($/oz sold) 650 - 700 650 - 700Exploration and evaluation expense (Regional exploration) ($ millions) 3.0 10.0 - 15.0Administration expenses ($ millions) 13.0 15.0 - 20.0Capital expenditures ($ millions) Mine site 20.0 20.0 - 25.0 Capitalized reserve development (Mine License) 5.0 5.0 - 10.0 Gora development costs Mobile equipment 5.0 30.0 - 35.0 Site development 5.0 15.0 - 20.0 ------------------------------------- Total Gora development costs 10.0 45.0 - 50.0 Capitalized deferred stripping(2) 35.0 35.0 - 40.0 -------------------------------------Total capital expenditures 70.0 105.0 - 125.0----------------------------------------------------------------------------(1) Total cash costs per ounce is a non-IFRS financial measure with standardmeaning under IFRS. For definition of this metric, please see page 11 inManagement's Discussion and Analysis.(2) Includes the impact of adopting IFRIC 20 - Stripping Costs in theProduction Phase of a Surface Mine. Refer to Adoption of New AccountingStandards in the Management's Discussion and Analysis.-- First quarter results benefited from continuation of mining a high grade zone in phase two, as a result, the Company remains on track to produce between 190,000 - 210,000 ounces of gold in 2013. Total cash costs guidance for 2013 remains unchanged at $650 to $700 per ounce despite the increase in the royalty rate from 3% to 5% of sales effective January 1, 2013.-- In light of market conditions, we have lowered discretionary expenditures in a number of key areas including operations, exploration and administration, as well as, sustaining and development capital.-- Reserve development expenditures on the Mine License have been reduced while exploration drilling on the Regional Land Package is being minimized. The Agreement in Principle signed with the Government of Senegal in early April provides for the extension of five key regional exploration licenses which allows the Company to defer regional exploration activity. Exploration expense for 2013 is now expected to total $3 million, a decrease from our original guidance range of $10 to $15 million, while capitalized reserve development costs are now expected at the lower end of our original guidance range of $5 to $10 million.-- General and administrative expenses have been reduced to $13 million from the original guidance range of $15 to $20 million, but still provide for the necessary support of operations and development.-- Sustaining and development capital expenditures have been reduced by extending the timeline for the development of the Company's first satellite deposit at Gora, where permits are expected in 2013 and production in the first half of 2014. Mine site capital expenditures are expected at the lower end of our original guidance range of $20 to $25 million. Development expenditures at Gora in 2013 will be minimized to $5 to $10 million from a previous expected range of $45 to $50 million, of which $23 million was to be financed via the new mobile equipment loan. Capitalized deferred stripping at the Sabodala pit is now expected at the bottom end of the original range of $35 to $40 million.-- With these changes, at a gold price of $1,400 per ounce, we expect to generate free cash flow in 2013 which will further improve our financial strength during this period.



Development Highlights (Mine License)

-- Drilling at the Sabodala open pit during the first quarter was primarily from within the pit and along the perimeter to the east and west of the current pit to upgrade and increase mineral resources. Drilling confirmed continuation of these zones. The 2013 drill program for Sabodala was largely completed at the end of first quarter 2013.-- Waste dump condemnation drilling to the southeast of the Sabodala open pit encountered a zone of mineralization within the general trend of the NW Shear projected to the SE near the base of Sambaya Hill. Drilling continued in this area during the first quarter, following up on results received in 2012.-- A large resource definition program is planned for 2013 for the Niakafiri, Niakafiri West, Dinkokhono and Soukhoto deposits, pending ongoing community discussions. In conjunction with our Agreement with the Republic of Senegal, Management expects to complete these discussions and commence drilling in the second quarter of 2013.-- The Masato North target area is located along the possible northeast trending splay of the Sabodala Shear zone, to the north of Masato. Drilling intersected a strongly altered shear zone containing sericite, albite and sulphides. A total of 870 metres in 6 holes were drilled in the first quarter 2013 and results are pending.



Exploration Highlights (Regional Land Package)

-- A program of approximately 4,300 metres of Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling was completed in the first quarter to follow up on the mineralization intersected at Tourokhoto Marougou in 2012. Three mineralized zones ranging in strike length from 0.5 km to 1.3 km and with varying widths have been outlined. Geological and resource modeling is ongoing. The previous drilling program identified significant mineralization on three RC lines spaced over a total strike length of 1,200 metres. The follow-up program was designed to determine if this mineralization is continuous between and along strike of these widely spaced lines.-- A 1,600 metre RC drill program was completed in the first quarter at Goumbou Gamba. The program was implemented to test the strike and down dip extensions of gold mineralization identified over a 2 km strike length in earlier Rotary Air Blast ("RAB") and RC drill campaigns.-- Geological mapping and rock chip sampling was undertaken at Soreto. A 4 km long surface gold anomaly associated with a major NNW regional shear structure was identified. A limited diamond drill-hole program has been designed to test the mineralization at depth.-- Geological mapping and trench sampling at Ninyenko has confirmed the existence of a near surface flat lying gold bearing brecciated shear zone with pervasive quartz-hematite-potassic alteration. Gold mineralization has been identified in prospect trenches covering an area 1.3 km long by 0.6 km wide. Channel sampling of the mineralized zone gave elevated gold values. Trenching and mapping is planned to locate extensions to the gold mineralization.



Corporate Update

-- The Company signed a long-term comprehensive Agreement in Principle ("Agreement") with the Republic of Senegal in early April. The Agreement sets out a predictable and stable fiscal operating environment for the Company's future investment in exploration, acquisitions and development to increase reserves and production.-- The Agreement benefits all stakeholders and gives the Company the ability to invest with certainty in regards to the fiscal and operating parameters. The agreement is expected to be finalized during the second quarter of 2013.-- In April 2013, the Company appointed Mr. Jeff Williams to the Board of Directors of the Company. Mr. Williams is a non-executive member of the Company's Board and is also an advisor to Mineral Deposits Limited, the company that built the Sabodala mine.-- The Company has appointed Ernst & Young LLP as the Company's new auditors.-- The Company also announces that its Board of Directors has approved an amendment to its by-laws to add an advance notice requirement (the "Advance Notice By-Law"), which requires advance notice to be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by shareholders other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Canada Business Corporations Act (the "CBCA"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the CBCA. Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law fixes a deadline by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid.-- In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be given not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting, however, in the event the meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.-- The Advance Notice By-Law is effective immediately and will be submitted to shareholders for confirmation and ratification at the Company's upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on June 26th, 2013 (the "Meeting").-- The Company also announces that the Board has adopted a majority voting policy (the "Majority Voting Policy") with respect to the election of directors in uncontested elections. In the event that a nominee receives more "withheld" than "for" votes in an uncontested election, he or she will be expected to submit to the Board his or her resignation, to take effect upon acceptance by the Board. The Board, on the recommendation of the corporate governance and nominating committee, will consider the resignation and make its decision to accept or reject such resignation and announce its decision in a news release within 90 days after the shareholder meeting at which the candidacy of the director was considered.-- The full text of the Advance Notice By-Law and the Majority Voting Policy are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Further details regarding the Meeting will be contained in a Management Information Circular that will be mailed to shareholders of the Company and filed on SEDAR in due course.Review of First Quarter Financial Results----------------------------------------------------------------------------(US$000's, except where indicated) Three months ended March 31 ----------------------------- -----------------------------Financial Results 2013 2012----------------------------------------------------------------------------Revenue 113,815 60,526Cost of sales (55,971) (31,117) -----------------------------Gross Profit 57,844 29,409Exploration and evaluation expenditures (2,027) (7,176)Administration expenses (3,830) (3,349)Share based compensation 73 (1,755)Finance costs (2,696) (938)Gains/(losses) on gold hedge contracts 2,193 (17,483)Gains on oil hedge contracts 31 615Net foreign exchange losses (61) (369)Impairment of available for sale financial asset (962) -Other income 9 8 ------------------------------Profit/(loss) for the period 50,574 (1,038)Profit attributable to non-controlling interest 5,591 1,036 ------------------------------Profit/(loss) attributable to shareholders of Teranga 44,983 (2,074)Basic earnings/(losses) per share 0.18 (0.01)----------------------------------------------------------------------------Review of First Quarter Operating Results Three months ended(US$000's, except where indicated) March 31 ---------------------- ----------------------Operating Results 2013 2012----------------------------------------------------------------------------Ore mined ('000t) 1,312 1,117Waste mined ('000t) 7,536 6,316 ----------------------Total mined ('000t) 8,848 7,433Grade mined (g/t) 1.87 1.38Ounces mined (oz) 78,929 49,516Strip ratio waste/ore 5.7 5.7Ore milled ('000t) 696 573Head grade (g/t) 3.31 2.52Recovery rate % 92.1 90.0Gold produced(1) (oz) 68,301 41,904Gold sold (oz) 69,667 35,268Average price received $/oz 1,090 1,712Total cash cost (incl. royalties)(2) $/oz sold 535 650Mining ($/t mined) 2.61 2.53Milling ($/t milled) 22.47 17.19G&A ($/t milled) 6.17 5.61----------------------------------------------------------------------------(1) Gold produced represents change in gold in circuit inventory plus goldrecovered during the period.(2) Total cash costs per ounce is a non-IFRS financial measure with nostandard meaning under IFRS.
