TMT Resources to Pursue Opportunities in the Indoor Grow Industry

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Canada. T.M.T. Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TMT.H) (the "Company") announces that it has appointed George Gummow as an Advisor to the Company, as it changes its focus to opportunities to supply new technologies to the Indoor Grow Industry.

Widely recognized as an innovator of today's ready-cut fruit and vegetable industry, for 28 years Mr. Gummow was the President, CEO and an owner of Royal Foods Co. Inc., the largest fresh wholesale produce distributor/processor in California. His company later merged into the nation's largest fresh produce distributor, Freshpoint. Freshpoint was acquired by SYSCO, the global leader in the foodservice market, in 2000. Mr. Gummow continued as COO of FreshPoint/Royal Foods for five years. Under Mr. Gummow's leadership, FreshPoint/Royal Foods had weekly production in the millions of pounds, and some of the companies innovations included seed development, advanced growing techniques and refrigerated distribution. Mr. Gummow was also a founding member of the Produce Marketing Association ("PMA"), a trade organization representing companies from the global fresh produce and floral supply chain.

Scott Ackerman, CEO of the Company, commented: "The Indoor Grow Industry encompasses traditional greenhouses (vegetables and floriculture), hydroponics, and the rapidly expanding medical marijuana growing operations. With energy prices continuing to rise and an increased interest in sustainability, a market for the supply of highly efficient, environmentally friendly technologies to the Indoor Grow Industry has developed. Mr. Gummow's deep relationships within the Indoor Grow Industry, and his extensive experience with marketing products from this industry will be invaluable as we investigate opportunities to acquire technologies that can offer substantial energy savings while improving plant yields and seed-to-harvest cycles."

The Company has granted 100,000 incentive stock options to Mr. Gummow. The options have an exercise price of twenty cents per share and expire in five years.
