Dalradian Announces Exercise of Warrants for Proceeds of C$8.6 Million

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 23, 2015) - Dalradian Resources Inc. (TSX:DNA) (AIM:DALR) ("Dalradian" or the "Company") announces that 96.5% or 9,566,650 of Dalradian's common share purchase warrants originally issued on February 19, 2014 (TSX:DNA.WT) (the "Warrants") were exercised prior to their expiry on February 19, 2015, resulting in proceeds to the Company of approximately C$8.6 million. The Warrants were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange at the close of business on February 19, 2015.

This exercise represents a strong vote of confidence from Dalradian's warrantholders and, following on the recent private placement with Ross Beaty, puts Dalradian on a strong footing to advance its Curraghinalt Gold Project through a pre-feasibility study and an environmental impact assessment. With the underground program already underway and a drill program slated to commence in March, this promises to be an exciting year for the Company.

The shares issued upon exercise of the warrants were admitted for trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange as part of the block admission announced on February 3, 2015. Dalradian now has 162,173,133 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
