OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 7, 2016) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. ("Cornerstone" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGP)(FRANKFURT:GWN)(BERLIN:GWN)(OTCBB:CTNXF) announces that the Board of Directors of the Company has given approval to a non-brokered private placement of up to 90,000,000 units ("Units") at $0.05 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $4.5 million (the "Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period of 5 years from the closing date of the Offering.

All securities issued pursuant to this financing will be subject to a 4 month hold period from the closing date. This Offering will be subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and is expected to close the week of May 2nd, 2016.

Affiliates of Sprott Inc. ("Sprott") will act as finders in the private placement for up to 40,000,000 Units. Maxit Capital LP will also act as finders in the private placement for up to 40,000,000 Units. Finders' fees will consist of 7% cash or equivalent in Units at the finders' election, payable on closing. The finders will also receive finders' warrants equal to 7% of the aggregate number of Units purchased by investors introduced by the finders, each finder warrant entitling a finder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 for a period of 2 years from the closing date. The balance of the Units will be subscribed by current shareholders of the Company, management and directors.

Brooke Macdonald, President & CEO of Cornerstone said, "We are very pleased to be working with Sprott and Maxit in completing this private placement. It will provide us with funds to acquire and perform generative initial exploration work on new prospective gold and copper properties in Ecuador, the least explored country in the Andes, which has recently opened up large areas of the country for mineral exploration and where Cornerstone has a 15% interest financed through to completion of a feasibility study in the exciting Cascabel gold enriched copper porphyry project. We will also seek partners to advance our two 100% owned drill ready Ecuadorean gold properties, Vetas Grandes and Bella Maria, the also drill ready Caña Brava property where we have an option to acquire a 100% interest with no further work commitments, and the Miocene project in Chile where we are targeting epithermal gold-silver and porphyry gold-copper deposits along the interpreted northern extension of the Maricunga magmatic belt which hosts several world-class gold deposits."
