Palladon Ventures-CML Care & Maintenance Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 17, 2014) - Palladon Ventures Ltd. ("Palladon" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PLL) provides the following update from CML Metals Corporation.

Update to CML Stakeholders

CML Metals Corporation today announced that it has placed its Iron Mountain iron ore mining operations and concentrate plant on care and maintenance effective October 18, 2014. As of this date, the company will suspend mining and concentrate production for an indefinite period. Iron ore export prices have fallen significantly during the past year and as a result it is appropriate for the company to preserve its valuable mineral resources.

We would like to express our gratitude to our employees, business partners and to our community and stakeholders for the support they have shown in building our world class mining and production operations at Iron Mountain. The company will closely monitor the iron ore market and will resume operations when market conditions improve.

Palladon CEO John Cutler commented: "Palladon concurs with CML's decision to halt production, given the current low level of iron ore prices. Palladon also believes that the concentrate plant and large resource at Iron Mountain continue to hold considerable value. As the only iron ore mine west of the Mississippi river, Iron Mountain constitutes an attractive strategic asset, given the rejuvenation of U.S. infrastructure and the continued expansion of the oil and gas industry."

About Palladon Ventures Ltd.

Palladon owns a significant minority interest in CML, which is focused on advancing the Iron Mountain project, an iron ore mine located west of Cedar City, Utah.
