HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2017) - Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:UCU)(OTCQX:UURAF) ("Ucore" or the "Company") is pleased to comment on recent initiatives by the US government to assist in the development of strategic metals mining and separation in the United States. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (the "Act") which has been signed into law this month, includes a significant authorization of funds for the processing and acquisition of strategic metals from tailings on US soil, and directly addresses the Bokan project in Southeast Alaska. The Act authorizes budget expenditures for F2017, including USD$5.5 million for the remediation of historic uranium mine waste from the Bokan Mountain site in Alaska, in addition to an allocation of USD$15 million for the extraction of rare earth elements (REE) and minerals from strategic coal tailings sites in the Eastern US. "The US government's dedication of over 20 million dollars in F2017 to projects which are directly aligned with Ucore's Strategic Metals Complex (SMC) facilities and our strategy of tailings processing/monetization, is well timed," said Jim McKenzie, President & CEO of Ucore. "We're pleased that Sen. Joe Manchin, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and their colleagues have ensured that the development of US based REE resources and the remediation and economic development of resource-rich tailings sites using clean extraction technologies, are high priorities for the U.S. government. Ucore, with its partner IBC Advanced Technologies Inc, is pursuing the application of the SuperLig® metals separation and tailings processing platform in both instances." "In cooperation with Ucore, we now have a suite of REE separation ligands ready for deployment, as well as uranium and thorium ligands which have seen extensive historical testing and use," said Steve Izatt, President of IBC. "Our MRT platform, a US based technology addressing US strategic metals opportunities, is well suited to address domestic tailings operations." The Act approvingly notes the National Forest Service's dedication of $5.5 million in funding for the remediation of historic uranium mining at the Ross-Adams mine site at Bokan Mountain, Alaska. The Ross-Adams mine, which produced high grade uranium ore during the cold war era, remains open at depth, and is 100% controlled by Ucore's Landmark Alaska operating unit. The Bokan project also houses Ucore's Dotson-Ridge REE deposit, the site of an NI 43-101 compliant HREO resource, which is a distinct and spatially removed deposit from the Ross Adams underground mine. (http://ucore.com/projects/bokan-mountain-alaska/43-101) Ucore welcomes the improvements made to the Bokan Mountain site, an important asset which also houses Ucore's Bokan Dotson-Ridge rare earth resource. The Act additionally provides $15 million to the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) for the development and testing of commercially viable separation technologies which can be utilized in the near future to extract REE from the byproducts of coal mining. Ucore has engaged NETL for the prospective application of the SuperLig® REE platform in the coal tailings sector, a resource-rich US asset in West Virginia and other areas of the Northern Appalachians. The ability to acquire and separate REE from above-ground resources at a commercially viable level would be a significant achievement in developing successful alternative supply sources in a Chinese-dominated market. Ucore Rare Metals is a development-phase company focused on rare metals resources, extraction and beneficiation technologies with near term potential for production, growth and scalability. On March 3, 2015, Ucore announced the development of a joint venture with IBC for the deployment of SuperLig® technology for rare earths and multi-metallic tailings processing applications in North America and associated world markets. The Company has a 100% ownership stake in the Bokan project. On March 31, 2014, Ucore announced the unanimous support of the Alaska State Legislature for the investment of up to USD $145 Million in the Bokan project at the discretion of the Alaska Import Development and Export Agency ("AIDEA"). IBC Advanced Technologies, Inc. is an award-winning, green chemical selective separations company based on innovative MRT products. Headquartered in American Fork, Utah, with manufacturing facilities in Utah and Houston, Texas, IBC has supplied industrial, governmental and academic customers worldwide with environmentally friendly products, processes and services for over 27 years. IBC specializes in MRT, utilizing green chemistry to achieve highly selective separations of metal ions in complex matrices. Based on Nobel Prize-winning technology (1987), IBC's proprietary products and processes are used worldwide by premier metals refining and mining companies such as Tanaka Kikinzoku K.K. (Japan), Asarco Grupo Mexico (USA), Impala Platinum Ltd. (South Africa), and Sino Platinum (China). The Japanese Government (Mitsubishi Research, Inc.) recently awarded to IBC a highly competitive subsidy grant, "Demonstration Project for Seawater Purification Technologies", concerning the selective separation of the radionuclides strontium and cesium from contaminated seawater at Fukushima, Japan. IBC's expertise is illustrated by its extensive development and commercialization of separations systems for platinum group metals ("PGM's") at a world level. PGM's are analogous to the rare earth elements, in that they are considered difficult to selectively separate due to their constituent chemical similarities. The Ucore-IBC alliance builds on IBC's proven capabilities to develop, scale-up and commercialize selective separations systems for a number of diverse and complex applications.

BHP Billiton (AU:BHP) was among the global mining majors by market capitalisation to lose ground this week, as investors digested news of a reduced coal and copper outlook. BHP was down 1.8% for the week after announcing reduced production guidance for both copper, due to 44 days of strike action at Escondida, and metallurgical coal, after cyclone Debbie impacted rail infrastructure in Queensland. The company did outline record production over nine months from its Western Australian iron ore operations and over five months from its Queensland coal mines but investors clearly saw the glass half-empty. BHP also said it was progressing its divestment of non-core US shale assets, just weeks after activist shareholder Elliott Management demanded changes including a spin-off of its US oil assets. During the week, the Town of Port Hedland also supported an amendment to allow BHP to increase its exports from the Pilbara port by an extra 5 million tonnes per annum, despite some residents’ concerns about dust issues. Last week’s top market riser Grupo Mexico (MM:GMEXICOB) shed its gains, falling 2.8% on no news, whereas Glencore (LN:GLEN) made the biggest rise of 2% as the World Bank tipped zinc, lead and copper to notch up the top commodity price increases this year. Most of the global mining leaders were little changed, with half moving 0.7% or less, but Barrick Gold (CN:ABX) was the exception, plummeting 12.2% for the week after disappointing the market with its first-quarter results which missed on profit, production and costs. Many markets were closed today for the May Day holiday.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2017 / Acapulco Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "Acapulco Gold") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a mineral exploration earn-in agreement (the "Option Agreement") with OZ Exploration Pty Ltd. ("OZ Minerals") and Minera Zalamera S.A. de C.V. ("Zalamera"), pursuant to which Zalamera has granted an exclusive option to the Company and OZ Minerals, together as optionees, to acquire the Zaachila, Riqueza Marina, and Zapotitlan projects (collectively, the "Projects") in Oaxaca, southern Mexico. The sites exhibit positive geological indicators, and the Company believes the Projects have the potential for shallow, high-value-per-tonne volcanic-hosted massive sulphide ("VHMS") deposits. No modern mineral exploration has yet been undertaken on the Projects, all of which are located near developed road and port infrastructure. Under the terms of the Option Agreement, OZ Minerals has agreed to make first-year in-ground expenditures in the aggregate amount of US$450,000 on the Projects. Under the Option Agreement, OZ Minerals can earn up to a 78 percent stake in the properties by spending US$6.8 million over six years, with the remaining 22 percent owned by the Company. The Company anticipates that exploration activities will begin immediately, and it expects drilling to start in the second half of 2017. Exploration efforts are being guided by David M. Jones (BA, M.Sc.), a founding director of Acapulco Gold, a geologist and an expert in gold-copper porphyry and skarn systems. Most notably, he discovered the Los Filos deposit, in the Guerrero Gold Belt in southern Mexico, and he has identified several new gold systems in Oaxaca. He has consulted for Teck Corp., BHP Billiton, Gold Resource Corp., Wheaton River, Penoles, Torex Gold and Grupo Mexico. Mr. Jones also serves as a director and senior consulting geologist for Minaurum Gold Inc. The Projects The Zaachila project contains outcrops of extensive silica-iron exhalite and pillowed basalt, typical of many VHMS deposits. Historical sampling work indicated highly anomalous geochemical values for copper, gold, silver, barium, and iron. The Riqueza Marina project comprises a suite of bimodal volcanic rocks, including an interpreted felsic dome that contains outcropping silica-iron exhalite. Limited historical surface geochemistry returned anomalous copper, zinc, gold, barium, manganese, and iron. The Zapotitlan project is an early-stage exploration target where reconnaissance mapping has outlined a magnetite and copper-bearing alteration zone of approximately 700 metres by 300 metres.

Kootenay Silver Inc. (TSXV: KTN) (the "Company" or "Kootenay") is pleased to announce results from the first 11 holes of its maiden drill program on its RAM structure, situated approximately 700 meters to the west and south of the Company's La Cigarra silver deposit in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The program drill tested a 400-meter strike length of the 3,800-meter long RAM structure and dip extents between 65 and 200 meters. Assay results from drilling confirm RAM is a strongly mineralized silver system, hosting multiple zones of quartz veining as sheeted, stockworked or brecciated veins within an altered structure that measures 50 to 150 meters wide. The Company reports the system remains open along strike to the north and south for up to 3,400 meters and down dip to the west. Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, "Results from the first 11 holes of the program confirm RAM is an entirely new silver discovery and development of this mineralized structure will remain a top priority for the Company. The strength and consistency of veining within the structure bodes well for the discovery of further silver resources at depth and along both strike directions. Drilling returned good continuity of silver grades across a 400-meter strike length and widespread silver mineralization was encountered in all but two of the eleven holes, confirming the structure's large-scale potential. Moving forward, the close proximity of the RAM structure to our established La Cigarra silver resource offers excellent potential for future shared infrastructure and economies of scale, as we continue to develop RAM and advance our main La Cigarra deposit towards the economic stage." The RAM structure is one of 8 prospective targets that have been identified proximal to the La Cigarra deposit with the potential to add near surface silver resources to the project.  Click to view: the RAM drill plan and cross sections of holes 6, 7, 8 and 9. The 11 drill holes are the first phase of a planned, ongoing multi-phase drilling program that will be conducted on the La Cigarra project over the next 12 to 18 months. Follow up drilling of the 3,800 meter long RAM structure is expected to commence in the early part of the New Year and will form part of a larger strategy to test additional undrilled targets and the extensions of the La Cigarra deposit itself. The Company reports that drilling continues at the Project with the core drill rig collared at hole 14 within the La Soledad Zone, located approximately 1,000 meters south of the La Cigarra silver resource.  Once the current 3,000 meter drill program is complete and results of re logging and detailed mapping of the deposit are interpreted, the details and dates of the anticipated follow up programs will be finalized and announced in a future news release. A summary of the drilling within the mineralized zone are given in the table below: All technical information for the La Cigarra exploration program is obtained and reported under a formal quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") program. Samples are taken under the direction of qualified geologists and stored in sealed bags. Samples are delivered by the Company via courier to ALS Minerals ("ALS") in Chihuahua. The samples are dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis by ALS in Vancouver B.C. Systematic assaying of standards is performed for precision and accuracy.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 28, 2016) - Emerita Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Emerita") (TSX VENTURE:EMO) is pleased to announce that the Provincial Court of Seville, an appellate court, has ruled in favour of Emerita in its appeal of the lower court's decision that there was not sufficient evidence of any criminal act in the Aznalcóllar project tender process (See press release issued November 25, 2015). The Aznalcóllar project public tender process consisted of two stages. The first stage required bidders to provide detailed corporate information and demonstrate industry expertise. The second stage required submission of a detailed plan for the development of the Aznalcóllar project. After the first stage of the public tender process was completed, the Andalucian government panel responsible for awarding the Aznalcóllar project (the "Panel") determined that the only qualified bidders were Emerita and a group comprised of Minorbis and Grupo Mexico ("Minorbis-Grupo Mexico"). The appeal was heard by four judges of the Provincial Court of Seville (the "Court") who ruled unanimously in Emerita's favour in a 59 page judgement. The judges' decision was based on: (i) Minorbis-Grupo Mexico failing to submit the necessary documentation as required by the tender process; (ii) a failure by the Panel to consider the technical merits of the tender bids; and (iii) granting the mining rights to the Aznalcóllar project to Los Frailes Mining, a company that did not participate in the tender process, contravened applicable laws governing public tenders in Spain. The judges found that there is evidence of gross negligence and misconduct and indicated that there may be evidence of possible corruption and prevarication. As such, the Court has ordered the criminal case to be reopened against the Panel. Emerita's Spanish legal counsel has summarized the key findings from the Court's ruling below. Deficiencies with the Bid by Minorbis Grupo-Mexico The judges found that the bid submitted by Minorbis-Grupo Mexico should not have passed to the second stage of the tender process. The relationship between Minorbis and Grupo Mexico was not properly demonstrated in the documentation submitted to the Panel. Among other things, Grupo Mexico never registered in Spain or with the Spanish consulate, which was a requirement of participation in the Aznalcóllar tender. Further, Minorbis-Grupo Mexico never submitted the necessary documentation demonstrating its solvency, which was a mandatory requirement established in the tender process, as set out by the Panel. The Panel contradicted the tender requirements by declaring that the Minorbis-Grupo Mexico bid was submitted solely by Minorbis and that Grupo Mexico had just provided technical and financial support. The Court determined that this was not possible since Minorbis had been formed just 3 weeks prior to the deadline for submission of the tender, and according to administrative law in Spain, a company participating in a public tender has to demonstrate minimum experience and track record in that particular industry. Failure to Consider the Technical Merits of the Tender Bids The judges concluded that the Panel had failed to consider the technical details of the tender bids. As an example, the Panel did not consider that Emerita's bid contemplated double the investment compared to Minorbis-Grupo Mexico's bid. This decision fails to consider one of the principal objectives of the tender process, promoting investment to the region and creating opportunities for the community. Los Frailes Mining did not Participate in the Tender Process The judges concluded that awarding the Aznalcóllar project rights to Los Frailes Mining, a company that never participated in the tender process, contravened the laws and regulations governing public tenders in Spain. Although it is not clear if it was Minorbis or Minorbis-Grupo Mexico that participated in the tender, the Aznalcóllar project was granted to Los Frailes Mining, a company that was created after the completion of the tender process. The conclusion by the Court is that there are numerous administrative irregularities of a serious nature which occurred during both stages of the public tender process and as such the crime of "Prevarication" cannot be discounted. The judges have ordered the case reopened against the Panel. This is a firm decision by the Court which cannot be appealed. The Court's decision is a lengthy document written in Spanish. The Company is having it translated to English and is working with its Spanish legal advisors to fully analyze the ruling and will provide a more detailed update in the near future. The Company is also seeking advice on the legal process moving forward. The Company's Spanish legal counsel has advised that under Spanish law, if it is found that the awarding of a tender involves the commission of a crime, the tender is automatically awarded to the next qualified bidder. In the Aznalcóllar tender, Emerita is the only qualified bidder. The Aznalcóllar project hosts the past producing Aznalcóllar and Los Frailes zinc-lead-silver deposits. If awarded the tender, the Los Frailes deposit would be Emerita's focus of development for restarting mining operations at the site. The local community is strongly supportive of an environmentally and socially responsible approach to developing the site. According to Joaquin Merino, President and CEO of Emerita; "We are excited by this development. Emerita continues to maintain that its bid was superior and it should have been awarded the Aznalcóllar project pursuant to the tender process. We are fully committed to working with the Government and the community to develop the Aznalcóllar project to the highest environmental and social standards." Emerita is a natural resource company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties with a primary focus on exploring in Spain and Brazil. The Company's corporate office and technical team are based in Sevilla, Spain with an administrative office in Toronto, Canada.
