TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 30, 2015) -

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

Emerita Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:EMO)(the "Company" or "Emerita") intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 6,000,000 units of Emerita (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.05 per Common Share for gross proceeds of up to $300,000 (the "Offering"). Each unit shall be comprised of one common share of Emerita and one common share purchase warrant, entitling the holder to acquire an Emerita common share at $0.10 for a period of 24 months from issuance.

The closing date of the Offering is expected to occur on or about April 17, 2015. The common shares and shares underlying the warrants will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day. Completion of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including TSX Venture Exchange approval.

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for the development of its mineral properties and mineral interests in Spain and for general corporate purposes.

The Company has appealed the decision with respect to the award of the Aznalcollar public tender. The appeal is currently under review by a judge of the Seville court. The Company has presented documentation to the court highlighting its concerns relating to certain irregularities within the tender process. The Company believes the acceptance of the appeal by the Seville court and the expeditious manner in which the court is proceeding with its investigation is indicative of the merits of the appeal.

In addition, the Company announces that Jennifer Wagner has been appointed as Corporate Secretary of the Company, replacing Josh Van Deurzen. Jennifer Wagner is a corporate securities lawyer who acts as Corporate Secretary and legal consultant for several publicly traded TSX and TSXV companies. The Company wishes Mr. Van Deurzen all the best on his future endeavors and thanks him for his continued support.
