Eric Sprott announces that he holds indirectly (through his holding company, 2176423 Ontario Ltd. (2176423)) 2,000,000 common shares of Golden Cariboo Resources Ltd., representing approximately 14.4% of the outstanding common shares of Golden Cariboo.

On November 23, 2012, Mr. Sprott purchased indirectly (through 2176423) 2,000,000 units of Golden Cariboo, on a private placement basis, at $0.25 per unit for total consideration of $500,000, which represented approximately 15.3% of the then outstanding shares on a non-diluted basis and approximately 21.3% on a partially diluted basis assuming exercise of the warrants. Each unit was comprised of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0. 35 per share for a period of one year from the closing of the transaction.
