Coro Announces Private Placement Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 12, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro" or the "Company") (TSX:COP) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 22,500,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of up to $2,250,000 (the "Private Placement").

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one half of a common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 for a period of three years. The Warrants will be subject to a forced exercise provision after one year in the event the volume weighted average trading price of the Company's common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange is equal to or above $0.30 for 20 consecutive trading days.

The Company may pay cash finder's fees of up to 6% of the proceeds on a portion of the Private Placement. The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to advance the Company's drill program on the El Desesperado Property and for general working capital. Insiders of the Company may participate in the Private Placement.

The Company anticipates closing the Private Placement in one or more tranches. Closing is conditional upon receipt of approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
