Prophecy to Receive Approximately $2.4 Million from Equipment Sales

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2015) - Prophecy Development Corp. ("Prophecy" or the "Company") (TSX:PCY)(OTCQX:PRPCF)(FRANKFURT:1P2) announces that through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Red Hill Mongolia LLC, it has entered into a purchase agreement with an arm's-length party in Mongolia to sell substantially all of its mining and transportation equipment at the Company's Ulaan Ovoo mine for total proceeds of approximately $2.4 million subject to various currency exchange rates (the "Proceeds").

The Company received a cash payment of approximately $1,700,000. The remaining balance of approximately $700,000 will be paid to the Company in stages as equipment is picked up from Ulaan Ovoo. The process is expected to be completed by June 1, 2015.

Prophecy is currently selling and will continue to sell its remaining Ulaan Ovoo coal inventory by contracting with a third party transportation company to haul coal stockpiles from the Ulaan Ovoo mine to railway siding at Sukhbaatar. Current coal inventory stands at 80,000 tonnes, of which approximately 20,000 tonnes have GCV of over 5,000 kcal/kg.

Open-pit mining operations at Ulaan Ovoo may be restarted in short order by signing with any one of several available third party contract-mining companies in Mongolia that provide a turnkey solution with labor and equipment. The Company believes contract mining is a more efficient way to operate in Mongolia since contract mining firms will be responsible for labor agreements and equipment maintenance.

The Company received consent from its creditor, Linx Partners Ltd. ("Linx") which held a general security agreement over the Company's assets, for the sale of the equipment which belonged to the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Red Hill Mongolia LLC. In consideration for allowing the sale of the equipment, Linx will receive 12 million share purchase warrants of the Company exercisable at $0.05 per share for a period of 5 years from the date of issuance subject to final approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The Proceeds will be used to repay the Company's existing loan from the Trade and Development Bank of Mongolia and to advance the Company's Chandgana Mine Mouth Power Plant and Pulacayo Silver-Zinc-Lead Projects.

All currencies are expressed in Canadian dollars.
