VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 2, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Indico Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:IDI) ("Indico" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") announced on November 13, 2013 and increased on December 27, 2013.

The Company raised gross proceeds of $2,676,200 through the issuance of 26,762,000 units (each a "Unit") at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant") entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.15 per share until December 31, 2016, subject to Indico's right to accelerate the exercise of the warrants if the closing price of the Indico's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.30 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days between the expiry date of the four month hold period and the date of expiry of the warrants.

Total commissions of $52,724 and 527,240 finder's warrants were paid by Indico to Raymond James Ltd., Haywood Securities Inc. and Canaccord Genuity Corp. as consideration for arranging a portion of the private placement. Each finder's warrant entitles the agent to purchase one common share of Indico at a price of $0.15 until December 31, 2016, subject to the same acceleration terms as the Warrants.

The securities issued pursuant to this private placement, and any common shares to be issued upon the exercise of the Warrants and finder's warrants, are subject to a hold period expiring May 1, 2014.

The net proceeds from the Private Placement are intended to be used to further exploration of the Company's Ocaña porphyry copper-gold project in Peru and for general working capital purposes.

President and CEO, Mr. Robert Baxter, commented, "I would like to thank all the new and existing shareholders who participated in this financing which was oversubscribed. We look forward to the commencement of our diamond drilling program at the Ocaña porphyry project in Southern Peru which we expect to start drilling in the next couple of days. This drilling program of 4650 metres is primarily aimed at defining an initial resource estimate. We look forward to the results of this program which will enable us to begin a scoping study of the project involving preliminary metallurgy and engineering studies."

Stonehouse Constructions Private Limited ("Stonehouse"), of 50 Raffles Place, #32-10, Singapore Land Tower, Singapore, 048623, acquired 15,000,000 Units of the Private Placement for a purchase price of $1,500,000. Stonehouse now has direct ownership and control over 28,846,919 common shares of the Company representing 29.53% of its issued and outstanding common shares, and 28,817,740 Warrants. Assuming exercise of all of the Warrants held by Stonehouse, Stonehouse would have ownership and control of 57,664,659 common shares of the Company, representing 45.59% of the then issued and outstanding shares of the Company, assuming that no further shares are issued by the Company.

The Units were acquired by Stonehouse for investment purposes. Stonehouse has no present intention to acquire further securities of the Company, although Stonehouse may in the future acquire or dispose of securities of the Company, through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions warrant.
