VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 12, 2013) - Fairmont Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMR) ("Fairmont" or the "Company") reports that the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") has suspended trading in the Company's securities as a result of a cease trade order ("CTO") issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission prior to market open today.

The cease trade order was issued due to an administrative error by the Company which resulted in failure to file interim financial statements and Form 51-102F1, (Management's Discussion & Analysis) for the financial period ending January 31st 2013. Efforts are currently underway to correct this error, and the Company anticipates filing an application of reinstatement of trading with the objective that trading can commence as early as possible following the revocation of the cease trade order.
