Liberty Silver Reports Proposed Class Action Lawsuit

18:35 EDT Monday, September 16, 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2013) - Liberty Silver Corp. (TSX:LSL) ("Liberty" or the "Company") has become aware that the Company and its Chief Executive Officer have been named as defendants in a proposed class action lawsuit filed against Robert Genovese, certain individuals alleged to have collaborated with Mr. Genovese, and an offshore investment firm allegedly controlled by Mr. Genovese. The action contains various claims alleging violations of the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and rules thereunder relating to anomalous trading activity and fluctuations in the Company's share price from August through October 2012. The plaintiff purports to bring suit on behalf of all who purchased or otherwise acquired the Company's common shares from April 1, 2008, through and including October 5, 2012.

The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, and, to the Company's knowledge, neither the Company nor its Chief Executive Officer have yet been served with the complaint.

If a complaint is served, Liberty and its Chief Executive Officer intend to fully investigate the complaint and will undertake a vigorous defence.
