Mediterranean Announces Revocation of Ontario Cease Trade Order

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 5, 2014) - Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX:MNR) (FRANKFURT:MHM1) ("Mediterranean" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the cease trade order issued by the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC") on May 20, 2014 was revoked on August 1, 2014. The cease trade order was issued in connection with a review of the Company's continuous disclosure undertaken by the OSC as a result of the Company's late filing of its financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, annual information form and related certifications for the year ended December 31, 2013.

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has received a further extension with respect to the delisting of its common shares (the "Shares") from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"), and that the Shares will now be delisted from the TSX at the close of business on August 8, 2014. The Company has made an application to the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to migrate the listing of its Shares from the TSX to the TSXV. There can be no assurance that a listing on the TSXV will be obtained before the Company is delisted from the TSX, or at all.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Mediterranean Resources Ltd.
