Canadian Orebodies Announces Option Agreement With Carlisle Goldfields Ltd.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 13, 2013) - Canadian Orebodies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CO) ("the Company" or "Orebodies") is pleased to announce that it has executed an option agreement with Carlisle Goldfields Ltd. (TSX:CGJ)(OTCQX:CGJCF) ("Carlisle") pursuant to which the Company has been granted the option to acquire a 10% interest in the mining claims and mining leases comprising the Farley Lake Mine Project located near the town of Lynn Lake, Manitoba, in which Carlisle holds a 100% interest.

In order to acquire its interest in the property, Orebodies is required to incur aggregate exploration expenditures on the property of $800,000 (the "Expenses") by December 31, 2013. Upon Orebodies acquiring its interest, the parties will enter into a joint venture agreement pursuant to which Carlisle shall incur all further expenditures on the property until it reaches commercial production. After the commencement of commercial production, Orebodies and Carlisle will be obligated to contribute funds to approved programs and budgets of the joint venture in proportion to their respective participating interests.

Gordon McKinnon, President and CEO of Orebodies commented, "We are pleased to be entering into this agreement with Carlisle on such a promising gold deposit. The Farley Lake Mine Project's high grade and open pit characteristics are extremely compelling. We believe that these factors combined with excellent exploration opportunities make this a very attractive investment for our Company."

At any time after Orebodies has acquired its interest in the property and prior to April 30, 2016, Orebodies shall be entitled to transfer such interest back to Carlisle upon 15 days prior written notice (the "Put Right") in exchange for the issuance to Orebodies of Carlisle shares with an aggregate value of $800,000, with each Carlisle share being valued at the greater of $0.10 per Carlisle share and the volume weighted average trading price of the Carlisle shares traded on the TSX for the twenty (20) days where transactions have been recorded on those shares immediately preceding the date of the Back-In Notice or Put Notice (the "Reference Price"). Further, in the event that Orebodies exercises the option and acquires its 10% interest in the property, then at any time after December 31, 2014 and on or prior to April 30, 2016, Carlisle shall have the right (the "Back-In Right") to require that Orebodies transfer such interest back to Carlisle upon 15 days prior written notice to Orebodies, in exchange for the issuance to Orebodies of Carlisle Shares with an aggregate value of $800,000, with each Carlisle share being valued at the Reference Price, provided that if: (a) the Reference Price of Carlisle's shares for purposes of such issuance is less than the minimum price permissible by the TSX; or (b) such issuance would result in the issuance to Orebodies of a number of Carlisle Shares that would be equal to 10% or more of the outstanding Carlisle Shares, Carlisle shall not be permitted to exercise the Back-In Right.

The Farley Lake Property is hosted in a Pre-Cambrian sedimentary iron formation. The iron formation in the Farley Lake area is 6 km long by 600 m wide and is predominantly composed of an oxide facies iron formation that is intercalated with clastic sediments. Mineralization is in discordant sulphide lenses within silicified, chloritized and sulphidized oxide facies iron formation. The Farley Lake Deposit is thought to be an epigenetic iron-formation hosted gold deposit.
