Royalty income stream to Red Rock of 3% on plant output began 1 May 2016, to be calculated quarterly.

Red Rock holds US$1,000,000 promissory note with conversion right.

Background

Para is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, and at the closing price on 9 May 2016 had a market capitalisation of CAN $19.0m. On 13 January 2016 Para announced a letter of intent to acquire Colombia Milling Ltd, the acquiror of Red Rock's Colombian interests, and this acquisition has subsequently been completed.Para has recently stated that once steady state production has been achieved, it expects to produce over 20,000 oz of gold per year through the processing plant with a projected all-in sustaining cost of cUS$600 per ounce.

Red Rock Chairman Andrew Bell states: "Para's last announcement already allowed us to project, once steady state production is reached, and at current gold prices, approximately US$300,000 of annualised royalty income from that part of the planned plant output derived from the El Limon mine itself. With greater visibility now as to the source of the other half of the material Para plans to process to reach its projected steady state production of 20,000 oz p.a., we expect to revise those projections upwards over time.

The improving news flow from Colombia shows that we selected the right buyer for our Colombian assets last year.

Reduction of costs, and the development of cash flows from each of our key business areas has been our consistent focus. It has taken more than two and a half years of effort to get to this point, where the effort is beginning to pay off. Oil revenues at Shoats Creek and gold royalty flows are going to transform significantly our business, with other revenue streams playing their part."
