MONTREAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) -

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

Cyprium Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CUG) ("Cyprium" or the "Corporation"), a Canadian-based mining company with operations located in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, is pleased to announce that, subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval, it has closed its previously announced private placement of 2,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of CDN $0.14 per Unit for gross proceeds of CDN $280,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one (1) share purchase warrant of the Corporation ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of CDN $0.28 expiring two (2) years from the date of issuance.

Alain Lambert, Chairman of the Company stated: "With the financing announced today we have now completed CDN $1,500,000 of financings in the last five days. The small equity financing we closed today is in addition to the US $1 million first tranche financing disbursed on Friday April 17. Friday's disbursement is part of a larger US $4.5 million which we announced in early March. The remainder of the US $.5 million is expected to be disbursed in 2015 as corporate developments warrant." Mr. Lambert concluded: "Our efforts are now focused on starting out operations at the Aldama plant which we expect to happen shortly. The initial focus will be on evaluating mineralized material with a view of entering into long-term arrangements with local miners."

Cyprium has paid finders a cash commission of up to 8% of the proceeds of the Offering that have resulted from such parties efforts, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws. The finders have also been granted warrants to purchase up to 8% of the number of Units sold under the Offering, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Unit at CDN $0.14 per Unit for a period of eighteen months from the closing of the Offering. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for general corporate purposes and working capital.

Pursuant to applicable securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the date of issuance of such securities.
