Prophecy Special Meeting of Shareholders on December 19, 2014 to Approve Name Change

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 17, 2014) - Prophecy Coal Corp. ("Prophecy" or the "Company") (TSX:PCY)(OTCQX:PRPCF)(FRANKFURT:1P2) will hold a special meeting of shareholders on December 19, 2014 at 8:30 AM (PST) (the "Special Meeting") at the Board Room - 2nd Floor, 342 Water Street, Vancouver, BC, V6B 1B6.

At the Special Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve an amendment to the Company's Articles to change the name of the Company to "Prophecy Development Corp." (the "Name Change") to better reflect its various interests in current coal and energy projects in Mongolia, pending acquisition of a silver-lead-zinc project in Bolivia (as disclosed in the Company's press release dated November 4, 2014), and to allow for the broadening development and evolution of the Company's business interests as it actively pursues new opportunities.

Although shareholder approval of the Name Change is being sought at the Special Meeting, such Name Change would become effective at a future date to be determined by the Board when it considers it to be in the best interests of the Company to implement. The proposed Name Change is also subject to certain regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX and the Registrar of Companies under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).
