HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Royal Mines and Minerals Corp. (OTCBB: RYMM) ("Royal Mines") is pleased to announce that Golden Anvil S.A. de C.V. ("Golden Anvil") has entered into a letter of intent ("LOI") with Gainey Capital Corp ("Gainey Capital"), a Toronto Stock Exchange Venture ("TSX-V") company.

Under the terms of the LOI, Gainey Capital has agreed to acquire from Golden Anvil, directly or indirectly, certain assets (the "Assets") comprising of certain mineral concessions located in the western portion of the Sierra Madre occidental mountain range in Mexico (the "El Colomo Concessions"), a concentration plant located in Huajicori, Nayarit, and other associated assets and equipment, including a tailing reservoir, a mine site housing camp and a mine site industrial facility.

It is intended that the acquisition of the Assets (the "Acquisition") will be Gainey Capital's Qualifying Transaction in accordance with the policies of the TSX-V. Upon completion of the Transaction, it is expected that the Company will be a Tier 2 mining issuer.

As consideration for the acquisition of Assets, Gainey Capital has agreed to pay Golden Anvil aggregate consideration as follows:

a. the issue of 12,000,000 previously unissued common shares in the capital of Gainey Capital (the "Shares") to Golden Anvil, which shall be issued on the day of the completion of the Acquisition (the "Closing Date"); and

b. the issue of a special warrant of the Company (the "Special Warrant") to Golden Anvil or its nominee, which shall be issued effective as of the Closing Date. The Special Warrant will be convertible, for no additional consideration, from time to time, subject to an aggregate maximum of 3,000,000 common shares, into that number of common shares equal to the number of ounces of gold or gold equivalent, categorized as "proven mineral reserves" (as such terms are defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum), upon receipt by the Company and/or Golden Anvil of a technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") by an independent qualified person (as defined in NI 43-101) in relation to the El Colomo Concessions on or before October 21, 2015.

Royal Mines has loaned Golden Anvil a total of $1,000,000 over the last couple years, and if the acquisition is completed Royal Mines expects to either receive common shares in the capital of Gainey Capital in satisfaction of the loan or to receive full payment of the loan, plus interest from the date of advance of the funds at 18% per annum. Royal Mines views this acquisition positively, believes the mineral concessions have significant mineral reserves based on past exploration and geological reports, and has full confidence in the directors and officers of Gainey Capital and Golden Anvil to create additional value for their shareholders.
