("Tintina" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAU) (OTCQX:TINTF) is pleased to announce dismissal of a legal complaint challenging an amendment to an exploration license for its Black Butte Copper Project. Montana Environmental Information Center (MEIC), Earthworks, and a plaintiff Intervenor, the Upper Missouri Water Keeper filed a voluntary motion dismissing without prejudice their complaint against Tintina and the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in the Meagher County District Court in White Sulphur Springs, MT, USA.
As previously disclosed in a press release on April 7, 2014, Tintina formally withdrew its request for the exploration license amendment that was the subject of the complaint.

We are moving ahead with preparation for a feasibility study and an application for a mine operating permit for the Black Butte Copper Project. As we go forward, Tintina will continue using a balanced approach to development with full engagement and transparency with the community and region. We remain steadfast in our commitment to doing this project right- from the beginning."
Jerry Zieg, VP of Exploration concluded, "We look forward to advancing this tremendous resource in a responsible manner, protecting water resources and the environment while providing good family wage jobs."
