VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - June 03, 2015) - I-Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IMA) (OTCQX: IMAHF) ("the Company" or "I-Minerals") announces, further to its press releases of March 20, 2014, July 3, 2014, October 8, 2014, and May 19, 2015, that court-ordered mediation was held on May 28, 2015, in the lawsuit filed against the Company by Hoodoo Resources, LLC, and the Brent Thomson Family Trust (collectively, "the Plaintiffs"). The mediation sought to resolve the Plaintiffs' claims against the Company, as well as the Company's claims against the Plaintiffs.

The Company is pleased to announce that the mediation was successful and the Plaintiffs and the Company entered into an agreement in principle to settle the parties' claims against one another that was documented in a Binding Settlement Term Sheet. The terms of the settlement include "the broadest release allowed by law" and require that all claims now existing, whether known or unknown, be dismissed with prejudice. The settlement also includes an acknowledgement by the Plaintiffs that "I-Minerals is the sole owner of the" mineral Leases that are subject to the August 10, 2002 agreement, as amended, between the Company and IIM, and that the Company owns the mineral Leases "free and clear of all claims of the parties" to the lawsuit.

The agreement in principle is subject to Court approval, which the Company believes will be forthcoming in the next thirty (30) days.

The President and CEO of I-Minerals, Thomas Conway, states that "management's steadfast position that I-Minerals would ultimately resolve the legal action to the satisfaction of I-Minerals' shareholders has been vindicated."

I-Minerals finally wishes to acknowledge the diligent efforts of the mediator, Michael McNichols, and I-Minerals' counsel of record, the law firm of Eberle, Berlin, Kading, Turnbow & McKlveen, Chtd., in resolving this legal action.
