CRH Funding II Pte. Ltd. Completes First Tranche of Previously Announced Equity Investment in K92 Mining Inc.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 17, 2016) - This press release is issued by CRH Funding II Pte. Ltd. ("CRH"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cartesian Royalty Holdings Pte. Ltd., pursuant to the early warning requirements of National Instrument 62-103 with respect to common shares ("Common Shares") of K92 Mining Inc. ("K92"), a reporting issuer in certain jurisdictions in Canada and with a business address of 700 - 510 West Hastings, Vancouver, BC V6B 1L8. In accordance with such early warning requirements, CRH is required to report certain information in respect of its holdings of securities of K92. As of the date hereof, the outstanding share capital of K92 consists of 75,947,563 Common Shares and 5,428,571 preferred shares ("Preferred Shares"), each of which is convertible into one Common Share subject to the terms and conditions thereof.

CRH announced today that it has purchased 5,428,571 units of K92 at C$0.35 per unit for a total consideration of C$1,900,000 (the "First Tranche Equity Investment"). Each unit consists of: (i) one Class A Preferred Share, convertible into one Common Share of K92; and (ii) one warrant entitling CRH to purchase one Common Share of K92, exercisable at C$0.75 per share for a period of two (2) years following the date of issue. A forced exercise clause applies to these warrants if shares of K92 trade at C$1.25 or greater for 10 consecutive days during the 2-year term. CRH has the right to purchase an additional 4,571,429 units of K92 at the same terms as above for an additional consideration of C$1,600,000 (the "Second Tranche Equity Investment").

The First Tranche Equity Investment represents the first tranche of a previously announced equity investment pursuant to the gold prepayment agreement ("GPA") dated February 4, 2016, as novated, amended and assigned. As per anti-dilution adjustments under the GPA, the 5,428,571 Preferred Shares purchased in the First Tranche Equity Investment will convert into 10,318,261 Common Shares of K92. The 4,571,429 Preferred Shares CRH may purchase in the Second Tranche Equity Investment would convert into 8,689,063 Common Shares of K92. The number of Common Shares for which the warrants may be exercised is not subject to anti-dilution adjustment.

Prior to the completion of the First Tranche Equity Investment, CRH owned 182,629 Common Shares and warrants to acquire 182,629 common share of K92. Following the First Tranche Equity Investment, CRH's Common Shares, Preferred Shares and warrants represent approximately 17.5% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of K92 on a partially-diluted basis (post anti-dilution adjustment of Preferred Shares and assuming exercise of CRH's warrants). The existing shares were acquired for investment purposes. Depending on market and other conditions, or as future circumstances may dictate, CRH may from time to time increase or decrease its holdings of common shares or other securities of K92. Upon completion of the Second Tranche Equity Investment, CRH's Common Shares, Preferred Shares and warrants would represent approximately 27.9% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of K92 on a partially-diluted basis (post anti-dilution adjustment of Preferred Shares and assuming exercise of CRH's warrants).
