Posting of Circular, Notice of AGM and Proposed Consolidation of Ordinary Shares

LIMA, PERU--(Marketwired - July 22, 2015) - Minera IRL Limited ("Minera IRL", or the "Company") (AIM:MIRL)(BVLAC:MIRL)(TSX:IRL) has today sent a notice of annual general and special meeting (the "Meeting") to its shareholders which includes the intention to seek approval to complete a consolidation of its ordinary shares on the basis of one (1) post consolidation ordinary share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation ordinary shares (the "Share Consolidation").

The Meeting will be held on 27 August 2015 at 11 a.m. (British Summer Time) at Ordnance House, 31 Pier Road, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 8PW. The Notice of Meeting, Management Information Circular and Form of Proxy (the "Meeting Materials") have today been posted to shareholders. The Meeting Materials will also be made available on SEDAR and the Company's website at www.minera-irl.com.

The proposed Share Consolidation is subject to approval by the Company's shareholders at the Meeting. The record date (the "Record Date") of the Share Consolidation (being the date the Share Consolidation is effective) is scheduled for 7 September 2015 with trading on a post-consolidated basis expected to begin on 8 September 2015. The directors of the Company may determine that the Record Date will take place after 7 September 2015; however, the Record Date may not occur after 7 October 2015. To the extent the Record Date is to occur between 7 September 2015 and 7 October 2015, a news release will be issued to this effect.

The proposed Share Consolidation would apply to all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of the Company, and accordingly it would not alter the relative rights and preferences of existing shareholders, nor affect any shareholder's proportionate equity or voting interest in the Company, except to the extent that the Share Consolidation would otherwise result in any shareholder owning a fractional share. In the event that the Share Consolidation would otherwise result in the issuance of a fractional share, the board of directors of the Company may (on behalf of relevant shareholders) aggregate and sell the ordinary shares representing a fractional entitlement to any person and to distribute the net proceeds of sale in due proportion among those shareholders (except that any proceeds in respect of any holding less than CAD$2 may be retained for the benefit of the Company).

Additional details regarding the proposed Share Consolidation are included in the Management Information Circular that is being sent to shareholders today.
