Adanac Molybdenum Corporation Shareholder Update

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 23, 2015) - Adanac Molybdenum Corporation ("Adanac" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AUA) announces the following shareholder update.

Adanac has retained KPMG Corporate Finance Inc. on an exclusive basis to assist the Company in exploring strategic options with respect to its business, including the Ruby Creek Project ("Ruby Creek"). Such options could potentially include raising additional capital, finding a strategic partner, or monetizing assets. Ruby Creek is an undeveloped primary molybdenum deposit located approximately 24 kilometers northeast of Atlin, British Columbia.

Adanac believes that Ruby Creek offers significant investment potential:

  • Ruby Creek, as evidenced by the tenure land package, is 100% owned, with no carried interests, royalties or off-take arrangements.
  • Existing Ruby Creek permits should allow for an efficient and accelerated resumption of Ruby Creek development, based on significant amounts of information about drilling, assaying, metallurgical test work, environmental studies and permitting, garnered over more than twenty years.
  • The NI 43-101 compliant May 2009 Resource Statement outlined a Measured and Indicated resource of 275.4 million tonnes grading 0.067% molybdenum, for 407.9 million lb. contained.
  • Metallurgical test results demonstrate that Ruby Creek molybdenum concentrate will meet or exceed the content specifications required by toll roasters.
  • Ruby Creek is accessible year round, and is three hours by road from both Whitehorse, Yukon and from the port of Skagway, Alaska.
  • While Ruby Creek is designed as an open pit, the Climax/Henderson-style geology and several high-grade drill holes indicate the potential for further underground development beneath and/or adjacent to the pit.

Public filings relating to the Company are available via the Adanac website at www.adanacmoly.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
