TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2012) - Bold Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BOL) ("Bold") and Rencore Resources Ltd. (CNSX:RNC) ("Rencore") are pleased to announce that the business combination of Bold and Rencore (the "Merger") announced on November 9, 2011 has closed. Pursuant to the Merger, each outstanding common share of Rencore will be exchanged for one common share of Bold and each existing Rencore Convertible Security will be converted to a New Bold Convertible Security. Further details regarding the Merger can be found on Bold's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

At the shareholders meetings for Bold and Rencore held on February 13, 2012, shareholders of each Company unanimously approved the Merger. Rencore is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bold and the common shares of Rencore can trade immediately on the TSX Venture Exchange as Bold shares under the symbol "BOL".

At the Bold Annual General and Special Meeting held on February 13, 2012, shareholders also approved the appointment of McGovern, Hurley, Cunningham, LLP as auditors of Bold; approved the 2011 Stock Option Plan, a 10% rolling plan; and elected the following directors: Richard Nemis, John Harvey, David Graham, Jim Glover, Gary F.

President and CEO Richard Nemis states: "we are pleased to have merged these two companies. It will provide a number of synergies both on a corporate and project basis. All of our shareholders will gain exposure to the combined potential with a larger critical mass backing the effort. The result should be a boost to the efforts of our exploration team and increase the chance of success in our hunt."
