Wildcat Exploration Announces Shareholder Approval of Property Acquisitions, Election of Directors, Appointment of New Management and Office Change

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - July 14, 2015) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WEL) is pleased to announce that, at the annual and special meeting of shareholders held on July 8, 2015, its shareholders passed a special resolution to approve the acquisition of diamond exploration properties in the Pikoo and Fort a la Corne areas of northern Saskatchewan, with approximately 99.72% of the votes cast being in favour of the resolution. The planned acquisition of these properties, together with gold exploration properties in the Flin Flon mining area of Manitoba (see news release May 12, 2015), will focus Wildcat mainly as a diamond and gold exploration company. The acquisition is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The shareholders also elected three new directors to the Wildcat board. Harry Barr, Stephen Masson and James Pickell have joined John Knowles, Charles Pitcher and Edward Yarrow as directors of the Company.

Stephen Masson, M.Sc., P.Geo., president and CEO of Copper Reef Mining Corporation and a director of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, brings strong exploration skills, especially in the Flin Flon Greenstone Belt where he has concentrated his efforts for the past 26 years.

James Pickell, P.Geo., with over 35 years of international exploration and mining experience in North America, Europe, South America and Africa, as well as in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt of Manitoba, Canada, is a recipient of the PDAC Bill Dennis Prospector of the Year Award (2000) for the discovery of VMS deposits in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.

The director nominees were presented in the Company's Management Information Circular dated June 9, 2015, and shareholders elected all directors nominated by management. The directors will serve until the next annual general meeting of the Company. Approximately 34% of the outstanding shares of the Company were represented at the meeting and the voting results for the election of directors are set out below:

I wish to take this opportunity to thank John Knowles, Glen Gowryluk and Tom Lewis for their dedicated leadership over many years and also to thank Denis Fillion for his service as a long-time director of the Company.
