Philippine Metals Inc. Completes Acquisition of Cuatro Cienegas Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 8, 2015) - Philippine Metals Inc. ("PMI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PHI) is pleased to announce that it has completed its acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Compania Minera Coronado S.A. de C.V., which holds a 100% interest, subject to a 3.5% net smelter royalty, in the Cuatro Ciénegas Project (see News Release dated April 22, 2015). The Cuatro Ciénegas Project consists of six concessions totaling approximately 3,408 hectares in the state of Coahuila, Mexico. "The acquisition of the Cuatro Ciénegas Project provides the Company with exposure to a project with high growth potential in a stable, established mining jurisdiction and reduces our current reliance on the Philippines, which continues to present operating challenges. We remain dedicated to realizing value from our Philippine assets, but recognize the need to diversify our asset base geographically," stated CEO Craig Lindsay.
