Oro Mining Responds to Wexford Announcement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 14, 2012) - Oro Mining Ltd. ("Oro" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) acknowledges the press release issued by Wexford Capital LP ("Wexford") on June 13, 2012 announcing its intention to make an unsolicited takeover bid to acquire any and all outstanding common shares of the Company at a cash price of $0.11 per common share.

Oro cautions its shareholders that Wexford has not made a formal offer and no action is required by Oro shareholders at this time. If and when the offer is made, the board of directors of the Company will review it to determine whether it is in the best interests of the Company. As part of the review process, the board of directors has established a special committee of independent directors (the "Special Committee"), who will, together with its financial and legal advisors, evaluate and consider the adequacy of the offer.

While the review process is underway, shareholders should await the results of the review and recommendation of the board of directors before making any decisions with respect to the offer from Wexford. After a formal bid document is received from Wexford, the directors of Oro will issue a directors' circular that will contain important information for shareholders, including the board's recommendation regarding the offer. The Company advises shareholders not to deposit any common shares to the Wexford offer and not to take any other action concerning the offer until shareholders have reviewed and considered the directors' circular.
