International Millennium Mining Corp. Completes Purchase of 100% Undivided Interest in the Nivloc, Nevada Silver Mine Property & Provides Company Update

April 12, 2016 – International Millennium Mining Corp. (“IMMC” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:IMI) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, International Millennium Mining Inc. (“IMMI”) has completed the purchase of Silver Reserve Corp.’s (“SRC”) fifteen percent (15%) interest in the Nivloc, Nevada Silver Mine Property (the “Transaction”), thereby acquiring a one hundred percent (100%) undivided interest in the Nivloc Property.

Pursuant to the Sale and Purchase Agreement, which includes an Option to Purchase Royalty Interest (the “Agreement”), announced on February 2, 2016, IMMI has paid SRC a total of US$120,000 for the Nivloc Property interests. Subject to the terms of the Agreement, SRC retains two percent (2%) of Net Smelter Returns royalty interest in the claims (the “Royalty Interest”). As a condition of the Agreement, IMMI has a time-limited option to purchase SRC’s Royalty Interest for a sum of US$120,000, payable on or before December 24, 2016.

IMMI is focusing on developing the Nivloc silver and gold property, which is situated in the Silver Peak Mining District of Esmeralda County, Nevada, USA, where it has reported a National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) compliant Inferred Mineral Resource, at 40 g/t Ag cut-off, of 1,640,000 tonnes grading 106.47 g/t Ag and 0.78 g/t Au. See the Company’s news releases of August 16, 2012, December 4, 2012 and January 8, 2013, either on the Company’s website www.immc.ca or on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Trading of the Company’s securities on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”) was halted in December 2013, pending the completion of a proposed transaction with Elephant Copper Ltd. (“Elephant”). On November 27, 2015, the Company announced that the transaction with Elephant was terminated by written notice from Elephant on September 13, 2015. Following the termination of the Elephant transaction, the Company initiated discussions with the TSX-V to remove the trading halt and resume trading of its securities.

During discussions with the TSX-V, the Company proposed to complete the following transactions (together the “Proposed Transactions”), concurrently with the resumption of trading:

  1. A Private Placement at $0.05 per unit, each unit consisting of one share and one warrant, with each warrant exercisable for two years at $0.05 per share;
  2. Shares for Debt at $0.05 per share; and,
  3. A Debenture convertible to units at $0.05 per unit, each unit consisting of one share and one warrant, with each warrant exercisable for a period of up to a maximum of four years at $0.05 per share; with the debenture being convertible for up to four years, by the lender for the full term and by the Company, pursuant to various terms, after the second anniversary.

It is the Company’s opinion that the Proposed Transactions are necessary, and should occur concurrently with the lifting of the trading halt of the Company’s securities. However, it is the opinion of the TSX-V that the Company’s securities must be trading for a period of time before the pricing of the Proposed Transactions are announced and approved.

Management of the Company is of the opinion that completing the Proposed Transactions concurrently with the resumption of the trading of its securities is essential; therefore, IMMC is currently exploring its options for a voluntary delisting from the TSX-V and applying for a listing with the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”). The Company has not paid its 2016 annual TSX-V sustaining fees pending the resolution of these conditions. It is the Company’s intention to continue its discussions with the CSE and seek a listing transfer from the TSX-V to the CSE, which transfer is proposed to be completed concurrently with the Proposed Transactions.

International Millennium Mining Corp. (TSX-V: IMI) is a mineral exploration and development company engaged in acquiring known smaller mine deposits, such as its Nivloc, Nevada silver-gold mine project, in the Americas, with the goal of advancing the properties to the mining stage. Emerging targets include silver, gold, copper, zinc and lead. The Company’s common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol: IMI and on the Frankfurt Exchange under the symbol: L9J.
