VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 19, 2016) -

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

DuSolo Fertilizers Inc., (TSX VENTURE:DSF) ("DuSolo" or "the Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement to raise between C$3.0 million and C$3.5 million ("the Private Placement") through the issuance of common shares of the Company ("Shares") at a price of C$0.04 per Share. This will result in the issuance of between 75,000,000 and 87,500,000 Shares of the Company. The Company expects to close the Private Placement on or around April 30 2016, subject to TSXV approval.

Existing Shareholder Participation

The Private Placement will be open to all existing shareholders who held the Company's common shares on April 15 2016 (the "Record Date"). Each purchaser will also be required to complete a subscription agreement which confirms, among other things, the availability of an exemption from the prospectus requirements of applicable securities laws in respect of the sale of Shares to such purchaser. In the event of over-subscription, the Company will determine allocations between shareholders at its sole discretion.

2016 Work Program & Corporate Update

The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to support the G&A and working capital needs of the Company, and for the preparation of various technical work. The Company is undertaking a program of technical, market and commercial work to produce a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") for its Bomfin Project. Work to be included in the PEA includes additional resource drilling, mineral characterization and flotation testwork, market studies for the proposed acid granulated fertilizer product, growth efficiency tests, product registration, capital and operating cost estimation and assessment of additional value-adding phosphate based products.

In addition the Company has made progress in reducing its fixed and variable costs, including a reduced headcount, reductions in office and G&A expenses and will continue to make cost savings and efficiencies throughout 2016. The Company is also realizing value from its assets including existing product stockpiles at its Bomfin Project.

Use of Private Placement Proceeds

Proceeds from this financing will be used approximately as follows:

G&A / Salaries - C$0.28m
Mine / Plant / Exploration - C$0.73m
Property Payments - C$1.19m
PEA / Permitting - C$0.80m

In the event that funds over C$3.0m are received by the Company it is anticipated that such proceeds will be used to undertake additional product development testwork.

Additional Terms

The Company will pay a 7% finders fee and 7% brokers warrants on certain of the gross proceeds raised from the sales of Shares pursuant to the Private Placement.

All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a minimum four month hold period.
