Columbus Copper Announces Share Consolidation and Resignation of Director

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 21, 2014) - Columbus Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE: CCU) ("Columbus Copper") announces that Columbus Copper, as part of its ongoing effort to reorganize, will be immediately filing for, and seeking approval of, documents relating to the consolidation of Columbus Copper's issued and outstanding share capital with the TSX Venture Exchange. The intended consolidation will be on a basis of one post-consolidation common share for every 10 pre-consolidation common shares. This consolidation will reduce the issued and outstanding shares of Columbus Copper from 93,347,977 to 9,334,798 shares, assuming no other change in the issued capital.

Columbus Copper's outstanding options and warrants will also be adjusted on the same basis (1 for 10) as the common shares, with proportionate adjustments being made to exercise prices.

No fractional common shares will be issued, and no cash will be paid in lieu of fractional post-consolidation common shares. Any resulting fractional share entitlement remaining after conversion that is less than one-half of a common share will be cancelled and each fractional common share that is at least one half of a common share will be changed to one whole common share.

A letter of transmittal will be mailed to shareholders advising that: (i) the consolidation has taken effect; and (ii) shareholders should surrender their existing share certificates (representing pre-consolidation common shares) for replacement share certificates (representing post-consolidation common shares). Until surrendered, each existing share certificate will be deemed, for all purposes, to represent the number of common shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the consolidation.

Columbus Copper's articles of incorporation authorize the board of directors to approve certain changes to Columbus Copper's capital structure, including the consolidation. As such, shareholder approval is not required.

The consolidation is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. Columbus Copper does not intend to change its name or its current trading symbol in connection with the proposed share consolidation.

The effective date of the consolidation will be disclosed in a subsequent news release. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, the board of directors may, at its discretion, determine not to effect the consolidation.

In addition, Columbus Copper announces that Nick Clarke has resigned as a director to concentrate on his other business commitments. The board wishes to extend its thanks and appreciation to Mr. Clarke for his contributions.
