Saturn Minerals Inc. Announces Completion of First Tranche of Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 2, 2015) - Saturn Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMI)(FRANKFURT:SMK) ("Saturn" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche for 3,200,000 units in connection with a Private Placement previously announced on March 23, 2015, of up to 4,500,000 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.18 per FT Unit.

Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share (the "FT Shares") and one-half of a non flow-through share purchase warrant (the "NFT Warrants"). Each whole NFT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share, exercisable at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of 18 months from the date of issue of the NFT Warrant. The FT Shares will entitle the holder to receive the tax benefits applicable to flow-through shares, in accordance with provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

The NFT Warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry if, at any time after an initial 4 month hold period expires, the closing price of Saturn's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") exceeds $0.30 for any 20 consecutive trading days, in which event the holder will be given notice that the Warrants will expire 30 days following the date of such notice. The NFT Warrants may be exercised by the holder during the 30-day period between the notice and the expiration of the Warrants.

All securities issued will be subject to a four-month hold period and the approval of the TSXV. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.

Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for drilling of Saturn's first exploration well at a target location identified at its Bannock Creek property in the Northern Willison Basin, (see news release dated February 10, 2015).

Finder's fees to third parties may be payable in accordance with the policies of the TSXV.
