Homestake Reports on Corporate Matters

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 24, 2014) - Homestake Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HSR)(FRANKFURT:B6IH) ("Homestake" or the "Company") reported that the shareholders have approved a Shareholder Right Plan at its annual general meeting held on October 22, 2014. The Shareholder Rights Plan was adopted to ensure the fair treatment of all Homestake shareholders in the event of an unsolicited take-over bid for the outstanding common shares of Homestake. In the event that a take-over bid should occur, the Shareholder Rights Plan provides a mechanism to ensure that shareholders have adequate time to properly evaluate and assess it without facing undue pressure or coercion. The Shareholder Rights Plan also provides the board of directors with additional time to consider any take-over bid and, if applicable, to explore alternative transactions in order to maximize shareholder value. Accordingly, the Shareholder Rights Plan is not designed to prevent take-over bids that treat the Company's shareholders fairly. A copy of the Shareholder Rights Plan Agreement will be available under Homestake's profile on SEDAR at Reference should be made to the full text of the plan for the details of its provisions. The Shareholder Rights Plan has received TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.

The plan is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. In addition, Smythe Ratcliffe LLP, Chartered Accountants were reappointed as Homestake's auditors.
