QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - July 30, 2013) - Virginia Mines Inc. ("Virginia") (TSX:VGQ) announces that on July 29, 2013, it granted a total of 168,250 stock options to its directors, officers, employees and some service providers. Each stock option allows the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Corporation for a price of $9.73, which price is higher than the market price at the close of business of the Toronto Stock Exchange on July 26, 2013. These options are governed by the stock option plan of the Corporation. Stock options are exercisable for a period of ten years from the date of grant. However, these stock options cannot be exercised prior to the next shareholders annual meeting further to the refusal by the Toronto Stock Exchange to recognize the approval by the shareholders of the Corporation, at the annual meeting of June 26, 2013, of all unallocated stock options granted under the stock option plan of the Corporation.
