Golconda Resources Ltd.: Initial Sale of Oil Production by Cold Lake First Nations Joint Venture

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 16, 2013) - Golconda Resources Ltd. (the "Corporation" or "Golconda") (TSX VENTURE:GA) is pleased to announce that the first 2 loads of heavy oil (a total of approximately 377 barrels) were sold by the Cold Lake First Nations Joint Venture on Wednesday, October 9.

David Orr, Golconda's President, commented," This is a great day for Golconda, our shareholders, our joint venture partners Tri Rez Energy Ltd. and Kasten Energy Inc., and for all of the members of Cold Lake First Nations. We anticipate that the coming months will see many more milestones achieved as we work together to further advance our project."

"Cold Lake First Nations has been producing oil continuously for more than 20 years. The shipment of oil we sent to market on October 9, 2013, marked a historic occasion for our Nation because it was the first shipment of oil that was produced by an entity that is majority owned by Cold Lake First Nations. We are very pleased with the progress we have achieved with our Joint Venture partners Golconda and Kasten and we look forward to even greater success," said Walter Janvier, President, Tri Rez Energy.
