Bacanora Announces Results of Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) - BACANORA MINERALS LTD. ("Bacanora" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BCN)(AIM:BCN), the Canadian and London listed lithium and borates development company focused on Mexico, held the annual and special meeting of its shareholders today in Calgary, Alberta. In total, an aggregate of 60,082,307 common shares, representing approximately 71.06 per cent of Bacanora's outstanding shares, were represented in person or by proxy at the meeting.

At the meeting, the number of votes cast 'For' the election of the following nominees exceeded the number of votes 'Withheld' in respect of the election of such nominees: Colin Orr-Ewing, Martin Vidal, Shane Shircliff, Derek Batorowski, James Leahy, Kiran Morzaria and David Lenigas. The number of votes 'Withheld' in respect of the election of Guy Walker exceeded the number of votes cast 'For' his election. Based upon the foregoing voting results and applicable Canadian laws, as all eight (8) nominees for election as a director had votes cast in favour of their election, they were all duly elected as directors of the Company. It should be noted however (as disclosed in the Management Proxy Circular of the Company dated May 8, 2015) that, notwithstanding the foregoing election results, each of the directors has previously entered into a Director Appointment Letter and has also agreed to be bound by Bacanora's Majority Voting Policy. Under each of those instruments, the foregoing nominees have all contractually agreed that in the event that it should occur that a greater number of votes are 'withheld', than are cast 'in favour' of their respective election as a director, he/she shall forthwith thereafter (and in any event within seven (7) days) tender his resignation as a director of Bacanora (and from any committee of the Board to which he/she has been appointed).

In addition, all other resolutions presented at the meeting were approved by Bacanora's shareholders, including the appointment of BDO Canada LLP as auditor, the re-approval of Bacanora's stock option plan and the approval of an ordinary resolution to confirm, ratify and approve certain amendments to the Company's by-laws, all as set forth in the Management Proxy Circular of the Company dated May 8, 2015.
