VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 3, 2017) - Revelo Resources Corp. ("Revelo" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RVL) announces that its joint venture partner, Minera Newmont (Chile) Ltda. ("Newmont"), a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM), has elected to withdraw from the Montezuma copper project ("Montezuma") in northern Chile and return its earned interest to Revelo in exchange for a perpetual 1% NSR Royalty interest in the project. As a result of signing definitive documentation to this effect, Revelo, consequently, owns 100% of the Montezuma project.

Revelo will focus its efforts over the next calendar quarter to fully understand and reinterpret the extensive database of information available for Montezuma, including re-logging drill core and drill chips, in order to redefine targets for further work. We remain convinced that Montezuma has a series of exciting targets located in the heart of one of the world's principal porphyry copper districts."
