MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2016) - New Colombia Resources, Inc. (OTC PINK: NEWC) ("the Company"), a U.S. listed Colombian company with natural resource assets, is pleased to announce that 2010 MLB World Series MVP Edgar Renteria has joined the Company to help promote their medical marijuana based products to the $ 1.5 Trillion U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets. The Company's medical marijuana joint venture, Sannabis, has been producing high quality, 100% organic, all natural medical marijuana products legally in Colombia since 2014.

Edgar Renteria had a 15-year Major League Baseball career with the Florida Marlins, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, and San Francisco Giants. In 1997, while playing for the Florida Marlins, he hit a game winning run in the 11th inning of Game 7 of the World Series vs the Cleveland Indians. In 2010, he won the MLB World Series MVP award by hitting game winning home runs in Games 5 and 7 clinching the World Series for the San Francisco Giants over the Texas Rangers, he retired the following year.
Mr. Renteria and Company President John Campo are both from Barranquilla, Colombia where New Colombia Resources operates. Edgar uses the Sannabis Pomada Caliente (hot cream) for aches and pains and can attest to its effectiveness. This endorsement is expected to increase sales in Latin America and eventually the U.S. The 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games will be played at the new Edgar Renteria Stadium being built in Barranquilla. The Company believes that a possible brand placement at this international event will be good for sales. Edgar has an impeccable reputation on and off the field and will be a huge asset to the company by introducing them to other world class sports figures that can use and endorse their products.
In 2014, New Colombia Resources purchased a rock crushing plant from Mr. Renteria for their mining operations in Guaduas, Colombia. The Company is negotiating the remaining balance of the purchase in exchange for restricted shares of New Colombia Resources. This transaction will eliminate that debt on the Company's balance sheet.
"I'm honored to have Edgar on board to help us promote our 'Made in Colombia' Sannabis medical marijuana products to the Latin American community while creating a new industry for a post conflict Colombia," stated John Campo, President of New Colombia Resources. "We're also in talks with a former NFL player to help promote our products as well," further commented Mr. Campo.
Mr. Renteria and Company President John Campo are scheduled to meet this morning at Doral Studios in Miami to coordinate the initial Phase 1 of the marketing campaign.
