Blackheath Reports Progress on Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 23, 2015) -

Not for Distribution to United States Wire Services or for Dissemination in the United States

Blackheath Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: BHR) (FRANKFURT: 04B) announces that it continues to make progress towards the completion of the previously announced non-brokered private placement of up to 5,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). The first tranche of 1,250,000 Units has closed to raise proceeds of $500,000 and the Company is making progress towards the completion of the remainder of the private placement.

Under the terms of the private placement, each Unit will comprise one common share of the Company and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each full Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.53 per share for a period of 30 months from closing of the Private Placement.

Qualified persons acting as finders in connection with the Private Placement may receive finders' fees in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Blackheath intends to expend the proceeds raised from the Private Placement on exploration of its past-producing tungsten projects in northern Portugal, including Covas, Borralha, Bejanca, Adoria and Vale das Gatas and for general working capital purposes.

All securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the closing date under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada. The Private Placement is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals including acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange.
