Access to Boleo Plant Restricted

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 17, 2015) - Baja Mining Corp. ("Baja" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BAJ) (OTCQB: BAJFF) has been advised by Minera y Metalúrgica del Boleo, S.A. P.I. de C.V. ("MMB") that access to and from the Boleo site located near Santa Roselia, Baja California Sur, Mexico is being restricted by the local authorities. Senior management of MMB has informed Baja that the Municipality of Mulegé (the "Municipio") has claimed it is entitled to certain construction permit-related payments from MMB. The restrictions result directly from these claims. Baja and MMB believe that resolution of the legal appeal launched to resolve this matter still remains before the courts and consequently the Municipio has acted without legal authority in imposing restrictions.

Mr. Tom Ogryzlo, Interim CEO of Baja, together with Baja's VP of Metallurgy and CFO, are planning a visit to Boleo in October after normalization of site activities and to meet with the newly-elected Presidente of the Municipio, who will be taking office later this month.

Baja will provide an update of developments as advised by MMB as appropriate. For further information, please contact Baja's Interim CEO Tom Ogryzlo at 604‐685‐2323 or via email at info@bajamining.com
