Oracle Notified of TSX Continued Listing Review

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 19, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Oracle Mining Corp. ("Oracle Mining" or the "Corporation") (TSX: OMN) (OTCQX: OMCCF) (FRANKFURT: OMC) today announced that it has been notified by the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") that it is being placed under delisting review. The TSX has indicated that the review process is being conducted as a result of the decline in the market value of the Corporation's common shares pursuant to Part VII of the TSX Company Manual.

The Corporation is being reviewed under the TSX's Remedial Review Process and has been granted 120 days to comply with all requirements for continued listing. If Oracle Mining cannot demonstrate that it meets all TSX requirements set out in Part VII of the TSX Company Manual on or before April 20, 2015, the Corporation's securities will be delisted 30 calendar days from such date.

The Corporation intends to enter into discussions with the TSX, and to potentially apply for listing of its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange to ensure, to the extent possible, continued and seamless trading liquidity for shareholders. Listing on the TSX Venture Exchange would provide greater operational efficiency and lower costs for the Corporation.
