VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 28, 2012 -- Lori McClenahan, President of St. Elias Mines Ltd. (SLI – TSX:V) (Frankfurt Exchange: EKL) (U.S. Clearing Symbol: SELSF) ("St. Elias" or the "Company") announced today that she and the Company have filed a Petition in the Supreme Court of British Columbia looking to identify certain anonymous individuals posting various comments on on-line bulletin boards that the Company views as false and defamatory. By means of this Court process, St. Elias and McClenahan are seeking an Order that will compel disclosure of identifying information for these anonymous individuals. This step is a necessary precursor for defamation litigation.
"St. Elias encourages open and honest communications. However, it will not sit by idly while anonymous persons spread misinformation about the Company and its executives on-line" stated Lori McClenahan. "This misinformation is damaging to St. Elias. The Company can and will take appropriate legal steps to address this."
