Gespeg Announces Gypsy Swap

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - April 28, 2014) - THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

GESPEG COPPER RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:GCR) (the "Company" or "Gespeg") further to the Company's news release of April 4, 2014 announcing the closing of the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"), Gespeg announces that three insiders, one of which is a control person, have arranged a sale of 4,500,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.05 per common share. The Company expects that 2,500,000 common shares will close through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") and the balance, being 2,000,000 common shares, will close in private transactions. The proceeds of these sales will be used by the insiders to purchase an equivalent dollar amount of units in the Private Placement. Gespeg will issue a further news release when it closes the Gypsy Swap Transaction.

As a result of the proposed purchase of units contemplated above, Gespeg anticipates that insiders may subscribe for greater than 25% of the Private Placement. The issuance of shares to insiders pursuant to the Private Placement is considered to be a related party transaction subject to TSX-V Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. Gespeg intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under section 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that participation in the private placement by insiders will not exceed 25% of the fair market value of Gespeg's market capitalization.

About Gespeg Copper Resources Inc.: Gespeg is an exploration company with a focus on copper, especially in a grossly underexplored region "Gaspé, Québec". With a dedicated management team, the Company's goal is to create shareholder wealth through the discovery of new deposits.
