Humboldt Announces Support for Diaz Resources Ltd. Share and Debt Reorganization Plan

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2012) - Humboldt Capital Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HMB) announced today that it has entered into a support agreement with Diaz Resources Ltd. ("Diaz"), pursuant to which Humboldt has agreed to vote all of the Diaz common shares and the 10.5% convertible secured subordinated debentures ("Secured Debentures") of Diaz owned by Humboldt in favor of a Share and Debt Reorganization Plan proposed by Diaz.

The Share and Debt Reorganization proposal if completed will result in: (i) Diaz's common shares ("Diaz Pre-Consolidation Shares") being consolidated on the basis of 25 Diaz Pre-Consolidation Shares for one new post-consolidation common share ("New Diaz Share"); (ii) the outstanding 10.5% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures ("Unsecured Debentures") of Diaz and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon being converted into New Diaz Shares at a conversion price of $0.50 per share; and (iii) the outstanding Secured Debentures of Diaz and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon being converted into New Diaz Shares at a conversion price of $0.11 per share.

Humboldt beneficially owns approximately 26 million Diaz Pre-Consolidation Shares representing approximately 30% of the outstanding Diaz Pre-Consolidation Shares and $7,340,000 principal amount of Secured Debentures representing approximately 92% of the outstanding Secured Debentures. Accordingly, following the proposed Share and Debt Reorganization, assuming a closing date of December 14, 2012 and accrued and unpaid interest on such Secured Debentures of $351,658, Humboldt will beneficially own approximately 71 million New Diaz Shares representing approximately 75% of the outstanding New Diaz Shares.

The Share and Debt Reorganization is subject to shareholder, debentureholder, stock exchange and court approval.
