Otterburn Provides Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) -

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Otterburn Resources Corp. ("Otterburn") (TSX VENTURE:OBN) and K92 Holdings International Limited ("K92") announce that they have raised an aggregate $1,348,913 of interim financing pending closing of their previously announced RTO and brokered private placement of special warrants. Otterburn raised the funds through the sale of 2,547,826 subscription receipts at $0.50 ($1,273,913) in a first tranche closing and 150,000 subscription receipts ($75,000) in a second tranche closing. Further funds are being arranged under this subscription receipt.

The funds were raised on a non-brokered basis through the sale of subscription receipts. Each subscription receipt will entitle the holder to automatically receive, without payment of additional consideration and without further action on the part of the holder, and subject to adjustment:

(i) one share of Otterburn following closing of the RTO ("Resulting Issuer Share") if a prospectus receipt is obtained within 60 days following closing of the RTO; or

(ii) 1.1 Resulting Issuer Shares if a prospectus receipt is not obtained within 60 days following closing of the RTO; or

(iii) should the RTO fail to close by November 30, 2015 (or such later date as Otterburn and Subscription Receipt holders may agree), a pro-rata share of (A) the loans to K92, and (B) the balance of the subscription proceeds (if any) which has not then been loaned by Otterburn to K92.

Otterburn will advance the net subscription proceeds realized from the sale of the Subscription Receipts to K92 as loans for financing of operations in Papua New Guinea pending closing of the RTO and brokered placement. Otterburn has committed to filing a prospectus which will qualify the Resulting Issuer Shares issuable on conversion of the Subscription Receipts, and obtaining a prospectus receipt as expeditiously as possible following closing.

Formal closing remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
