Aurizon Provides Update on Shareholder Rights Plan
TSX Temporarily Defers Its Consideration of the Acceptance of Aurizon's Shareholder Rights Plan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Aurizon Mines Ltd. (TSX:ARZ)(NYSE MKT:AZK) -

The Aurizon Board of Directors announced today that, further to the press release of Aurizon on January 23, 2013 announcing the adoption of a shareholder rights plan (the "Rights Plan"), the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") determined on January 29, 2013, in accordance with its rules, to defer its consideration of the acceptance for filing of the Rights Plan until the appropriate securities commission has had the opportunity to consider whether it will initiate proceedings under securities laws with respect to the Rights Plan. The deferral does not affect the operation of the Rights Plan which remains effective in accordance with its terms.

The TSX deferral is in accordance with the polices of the TSX and is typical in situations in which a shareholder rights plan can be perceived to have been adopted in response to a take-over bid that has been made or is contemplated.

As previously disclosed, the Rights Plan is intended to provide the Board of Directors with adequate time to identify, develop and negotiate value-enhancing alternatives, if appropriate, to any unsolicited take-over bid, including the hostile take-over bid received from Alamos Gold Inc. and to encourage equal treatment of shareholders in connection with any take-over bid offer. The Rights Plan is not intended to prevent a take-over of Aurizon or to secure continuance in office of management or the directors.

Aurizon intends to seek shareholder ratification of the Rights Plan at a special meeting of shareholders to be held on March 7, 2013. A copy of the Rights Plan was filed on January 23, 2013, under Aurizon's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com, on Aurizon's website at www.aurizon.com/maximizevalue, and as part of Aurizon's registration statement on Form 8-A at www.sec.gov.

This news release contains forward-looking information (as defined in the Securities Act (British Columbia)) and forward-looking statements (collectively, "forward-looking statements") that are prospective in nature. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. In this news release, such forward-looking statements include statements regarding the adoption of a shareholder rights plan. These forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions, including assumptions regarding the shareholder rights plan becoming effective as planned; and the Board of Directors receiving adequate time to identify, develop and negotiate value-enhancing alternatives to the hostile take-over bid received from Alamos Gold Inc. Although management of Aurizon believes that the assumptions made and the expectations represented by such statements are reasonable, there can be no assurance that a forward-looking statement herein will prove to be accurate. Actual results and developments may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in this news release and even if such actual results and developments are realized or substantially realized, there can be no assurance that they will have the expected consequences or effects. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements contained in this news release.
