CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 2, 2015) - Iberian Minerals Ltd., formerly Solid Resources Ltd., ("Company" or "Iberian") (TSX VENTURE:IML)(OTCQB:SLDRF) announced today that it has entered into a definitive purchase and sale agreement with an arm's length third party with respect to the Company's 100% interest in the Alberta 1 Project. The Company's Alberta 1 Project is a tin, tantalum and lithium exploration project located in the Region of Galicia, northwest Spain, which is the subject of an exploration permit covering 123 mining units.

Iberian will sell its 100% interest in the Alberta 1 Project, for a total purchase price of EUR5,000,000 or approximately Cdn. $7,000,000 cash, all of which is payable by closing. The completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to certain limited conditions, including all applicable regulatory approvals. The closing of the sale is expected to occur no later than April 2015. In the unlikely event the purchaser, after using its best efforts and exhausting all legal and regulatory recourse, over a period of many years, is unable to obtain a mining permit for the project, the Company would be required to refund EUR1,000,000 to the purchaser.
