Nevoro to Acquire Major Increase in Stillwater Land Position

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) - Nevoro Inc. (TSX:NVR) ("Nevoro") today announces that it has entered into an agreement with Beartooth Platinum Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BTP) ("Beartooth") regarding the purchase and sale of the property, plant and equipment comprising the Stillwater Complex (together, the "Stillwater Assets") currently owned by Beartooth.

Nevoro has agreed to purchase the Stillwater Assets for consideration of $1,500,000 to be satisfied by the issue by Nevoro of 15,000,000 common shares in the capital of Nevoro and warrants to acquire 7,500,000 additional common shares of Nevoro at a price of $0.20 at any time prior to the day that is 18 months from the Closing Date.

This purchase more than quadruples Nevoro's mineral properties in the Stillwater Complex and brings together an unprecedented land package incorporating nearly all of the district's important advanced exploration targets - and all the identified historical mineral deposits - occurring outside the JM Reef, host to one of the world's largest and richest PGE operations and currently being mined by the Stillwater Mining Company.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to Nevoro being satisfied with the results of its due diligence review of the Stillwater Assets, Beartooth being satisfied with the results of its due diligence review of Nevoro, receipt of all required regulatory approvals and compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements and conditions.

It is the intention of the Companies that the sale of the Stillwater Assets will be completed as soon as practicable after the completion of the Beartooth-Kria Transaction. In the event that that the Beartooth-Kria Transaction has not been completed by July 31, 2009, then Beartooth will proceed forthwith to obtain all additional required approvals, including the approval of shareholders of Beartooth to effect the Transaction by no later than September 30, 2009.

Kria's President and CEO, Mike Hoffman, commented, "We are very impressed with the quality of both the assets and management team at Nevoro and feel that participating as an investor in Nevoro moving forward will provide additional value to our shareholders."

Beartooth's President and CEO, Mike Johnson, commented, "As a company with tremendous experience in the Stillwater district through Nevoro's current assets, the sale of the Stillwater Assets to Nevoro will provide Beartooth shareholders with more leverage to the Stillwater district as Nevoro has an excellent land position with significant existing nickel, copper, chromite and platinum group metal historic resources (non 43-101 and not to be relied on). In addition Nevoro's other property interests such as the Moonlight copper project in California are expected to provide further opportunities for shareholder value."

The Beartooth-Kria Transaction has obtained final court approval in relation to the previously-announced business combination. The completion of the Beartooth-Kria Transaction remains subject to TSX Venture approval with closing of the Transaction to occur as soon after the receipt of approval as practicable. The stock symbol KIA has been reserved and is expected to be assigned to the combined company.
