LEGAL SETTLEMENT PROCESS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED AT AFRICAN QUEEN’S RONGO GOLD FIELDS PROJECT IN KENYA

Vancouver, British Columbia — AFRICAN QUEEN MINES LTD. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the details of the legal settlement process relating to the land dispute over certain areas of the Rongo Gold Fields Project in southwest Kenya have now been successfully completed. On November 28, 2011, it was announced that B & M Mining Company Limited (“B&M”) and Abba Mining Company Limited (“Abba”) had reached a settlement agreement relating to their land dispute. Linear Metals Corporation (“Linear”) and the Company had consented to and were parties to such settlement agreement between their respective joint venture partners.

The High Court of Kenya in Kisumu has now issued orders effectuating the settlement and ending the litigation. Included is an order effectively splitting the property in question whereby Special License No. 287 issued in favor of the Company’s partner Abba is varied by reducing it by 15 sq. km to 97 sq. km, which 15 sq. km area is now covered exclusively by Special License No. 214 issued in favor of Linear’s partner B&M. The area reserved to Abba includes the target known as Odundu, while the area reserved to B&M includes the target known as Kamwango.

In addition, the Company has now furnished Linear with all of its technical information related to Special License No. 214 and has now received the sum of U.S. $150,000 in cash plus 949,658 shares of Common Stock of Linear as consideration therefor. A final payment of $150,000 is due in 12 months from Linear. According to Irwin Olian, CEO of the Company, “We are delighted that legal details of the Rongo settlement are now complete and are looking forward to commencing our core drilling program at Odundu in the near future.”
