Puma Exploration Begins Trading on the Santiago Stock Exchange in Chile

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 19, 2015) - Puma Exploration (TSX VENTURE:PUM)(SSE:PUMA) is pleased to announce that it is now trading on the "Santiago Stock Exchange, Venture Market" under the symbol PUMA, offering access to MILA - Latin America's largest stock trading platform. Puma is one of the first two Canadian junior mining companies to inaugurated the "Santiago Stock Exchange, Venture Market", providing new funding opportunities in the Chilean capital market for mining exploration companies.

The "Santiago Stock Exchange, Venture Market" aims to promote the finance and listing of exploration stage mining companies that are compliant with TSXV and Canadian securities regulations, in order to introduce TSXV companies to the Chilean capital market.

Santiago´s Stock Exchange Planning and Development Manager, Nicolás Almazán, highlighted "the listing of the first two companies in the Venture Market is a very important milestone for Chilean stock market in terms of innovation and leadership, as it will promote the visibility of the mining sector in the local capital market, which should result into a greater participation of this industry in our market. We also hope this is the first step to extend the initiative to other economic sectors".

Puma's principal listing will remain on the TSXV under the symbol PUM. The new ''SSE" listing will expand our visibility in South America by making it easier for local investors to purchase shares in Puma Exploration and to access to a potential new source of capital through Chile -- a country with a long mining history and home of some of the major Copper-Molybdenum Porphyry mines which occur in geological environments similar to our Nicholas-Denys Property in the Bathurst area of New Brunswick.

Marcel Robillard, President of Puma Exploration, stated: "We are pleased and honored to be one of the first TSXV listed companies to be listed in Santiago. We view this as a wonderful opportunity for our company and our shareholders. Chile is a dynamic, mining oriented country with a sophisticated financial framework and a well-developed and effective capital market system. In this way, we stand to benefit from the attention of new investors and simultaneous exposure to Chilean exploration companies looking to participate in our advanced exploration projects."

Marcel Robillard also noted: "We also view our new "SSE" listing as an eventual gateway to the Latin American financial system via MILA (the Integrated Latin American Market) at some point in the future. MILA is an integrated platform on which investors and brokers in Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru seamlessly trade shares listed on any of the four markets through their local stock exchange. MILA is the largest financial centre in Latin America with a combined market capitalization of over $1-trillion (U.S.)."
