Lakeside Minerals Inc. Announces a Financing and Debt Settlement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 12, 2014) - Lakeside Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LAK) ("Company" or "Lakeside") is pleased to announce a financing and shares for debt agreement.

Subscription Agreement with Canada Pacific Capital Corp.

Lakeside announces that that it has entered into a subscription agreement, dated March 12th, 2014, with Canada Pacific Capital Corp. ("CPCC"), a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), for a private placement of 5,800,000 Lakeside units (the "Units"), at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the "Private Placement"), for aggregate consideration of $290,000 in cash. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of Lakeside ("Lakeside Share") and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each "Lakeside Warrant") exercisable for three years at a price of $0.10 per Lakeside Share.

Lakeside Units issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be issued after completing 4 for 1 share consolidation ("Share Consolidation"), previously announced by the Company in the press release dated March 3, 2014.

The Units in the Private Placement form part of CPCC's Qualifying Transaction pursuant to the capital pool company policy of the Exchange and will be distributed to the CPCC shareholders ("Distribution"). Thereafter, CPCC will be delisted from the Exchange and dissolved ("Dissolution"). Any Units distributed to the shareholders of CPCC who are currently holding common shares in the capital of CPCC ("CPCC Shareholders") in escrow, will continue to be held in escrow. It is anticipated that all the Units distributed to CPCC Shareholders will be subject to a statutory four month hold period. These transactions are subject to Exchange approval and approval by the CPCC shareholders.

Pursuant to the Private Placement, CPCC anticipates it will invest all of its available cash reserves in the purchase of the Lakeside Units. Lakeside is expected to pay the anticipated costs relating to the Private Placement, as well as Distribution and Dissolution.

The Private Placement and CPCC's Qualifying Transaction are not a non-arm's length transaction for the purposes of the Exchange. The parties have one (1) common director and officer, being Adam Szweras, a director of CPCC and corporate secretary of Lakeside. Adam Szweras currently holds or controls 638,000 common shares in the capital of CPCC ("CPCC Shares") of the current 10,550,000 total outstanding CPCC Shares and holds or controls 1,819,754 Lakeside Shares of the 40,798,282 total current outstanding pre-Share Consolidation.

Debt Settlement

Further to the debt settlements announced by Lakeside in the press release dated March 3 rd, 2014, Lakeside wishes to clarify that following the completion of Share Consolidation Lakeside will also issue 108,651 Lakeside Warrants to arm's length parties. No Lakeside Warrants will be issued to non-arm's length parties.

Lakeside announces that in addition debt settlements announced in the press release dated March 3rd, 2014; Lakeside has entered into additional shares for debt agreement in the amount of $77,883.82, with an arm's length party ("Debt Settlement"). Following the Share Consolidation a total of 1,557,676 Lakeside Shares and 778,838 Lakeside Warrants will be issued to Forages M. Rouillier Drilling Inc ("Forages"), a Quebec-based underground and surface drilling company. Prior to the Debt Settlement, on post-Share Consolidation basis Forages owned 1,000,000 Lakeside Shares and 1,000,000 Lakeside Warrants exercisable at a price of $0.20 per Lakeside Share. Immediately following the Share Consolidation, the Debt Settlement and the Private Placement, Forages will exercise ownership and control over a total of 2,557,676 Lakeside Shares representing approximately 13.14% of Lakeside Shares outstanding, on an undiluted basis, and approximately 17.11% assuming Forages exercises its 1,778,838 Lakeside Warrants.

The issuance of the Lakeside Shares to Forages will not result in a change of control of the Company, will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of settlement, and will be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
