Financing to Advance Santa Rita Stockpiles Project in Nicaragua


Toronto, Ontario -- April 5, 2016: Rosita Mining Corporation (RST: TSX-V) ("Rosita" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 15,000,000 units ("Unit") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $750,000.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, with each warrant ("Warrant") entitling the holder to acquire a further common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 for a period of two years following the date of issuance. A Finder's fee will be paid on the Private Placement. The Private Placement is also subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Use of Proceeds

Rosita plans to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to advance the Santa Rita stockpile project, located near Rosita, Nicaragua. Work planned will include:
  • Metallurgical optimization test work leading towards a production decision by the first quarter of next year
  • Additional gold leach test work and SART studies for the recovery of copper.
  • Capital and operating cost estimation work
  • Completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment
Santa Rita Project

The stockpiles at the project were generated over a 17-year operating life from 1959 to 1975 at the Santa Rita open pit mine. A total of 5.4 million tonnes averaging 2.06% copper, 0.93 grams gold and 15.08 grams silver per tonne were mined. Mill recoveries reportedly varied from 60% to 80%, depending on the type of material processed.

In addition to the stockpile resources, the concessions also include 13 exploration targets for gold-copper skarn and porphyry mineralization.

Rosita recently completed an updated National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") resource estimate for the surface stockpiles. These total 70.9 million lbs. of copper, 96,660 oz. of gold and 1,520,500 oz. of silver and 46.2 million lbs. of copper, 50,330 oz. of gold and 957,500 oz. of silver in the Indicated and Inferred categories respectively.

Indicated resources total 6.46 million tonnes grading 0.47 grams gold per tonne, 0.5% copper per tonne and 7.32 grams silver per tonne whilst Inferred resources total 3.44 million tonnes grading 0.46 grams gold per tonne, 0.61% copper per tonne and 8.66 grams silver per tonne in a series of stockpiles located near the former producing Santa Rita gold-copper open pit mine. These estimates have been based on a US$10 net smelter return ("NSR") cut off.

In addition, the Company is also reporting maiden Inferred resources of 1.96 million tonnes grading 0.56 grams gold per tonne, 0.21% copper per tonne and 9.56 grams silver per tonne at cut-off of 0.3 g/t gold in tailings located proximal to the Santa Rita stockpiles.
