Adanac Molybdenum Corporation Provides Strategic Update

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Adanac Molybdenum Corporation ("Adanac" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: AUA) announces the following strategic update.

Adanac's sole asset is the Ruby Creek Project ("Ruby Creek" or the "Project"), which comprises an undeveloped primary molybdenum deposit, located approximately 24 kilometers northeast of Atlin, British Columbia. Adanac's strategic focus over the past two years has been to sell all or part of Ruby Creek or Adanac. Adanac believes that Ruby Creek offers significant investment potential:

--  Ruby Creek is 100% owned, with no carried interests, royalties or off-
    take arrangements.
--  Ruby Creek is fully permitted for construction and nearly fully
    permitted for operation.
--  The NI 43-101 compliant May 2009 Resource Statement outlined a Measured
    and Indicated resource of 275.4 million tonnes grading 0.067%
    molybdenum. The 407.9 million pound M&I resource represents a 38%
    increase over the 2007 Resource Update.
--  The now out-of-date December 2007 Feasibility Study needs to be updated
    to reflect this significant 38% increase. Additionally, molybdenum
    prices, while currently depressed, have the potential to improve
    significantly, including as a result of the increase in oil and natural
    gas drilling and pipeline construction. Project economics hold the
    potential for other improvements, including the substitution of
    liquefied natural gas for diesel to power operations.
--  The May 2009 Resource Statement and December 2007 Feasibility Study
    encompass significant amounts of information about drilling, assaying,
    metallurgical test work, environmental studies and permitting, garnered
    over more than twenty years.
--  Metallurgical test results demonstrate that Ruby Creek molybdenum
    concentrate will meet or exceed the content specifications required by
    toll roasters.
--  Ruby Creek is accessible year round via an Adanac-improved dirt road,
    and is three hours by road from both Whitehorse, Yukon and from the port
    of Skagway, Alaska.
--  The Project enjoys strong government and local community support.
--  While Ruby Creek is designed as an open pit, the Climax/Henderson-style
    geology and several high-grade drill holes indicate the potential for
    further underground development beneath and/or adjacent to the pit.

Notwithstanding Ruby Creek's significant investment potential, if no suitable third party investor emerges in the near term, the Company intends to initiate a process to liquidate its assets and return net proceeds to Adanac shareholders pursuant to a voluntary liquidation and dissolution process under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). Such a proposed liquidation will require the approval of shareholders by a two-thirds majority vote at a Special Meeting, which Adanac intends to hold in conjunction with its Annual General Meeting as soon as is practical subsequent to completion of the annual audit for the fiscal year ending February 28, 2014.

As outlined above, Adanac believes that the on-going value of Ruby Creek significantly exceeds the liquidation value.

The Company will provide further updates as they arise. Additional information about Ruby Creek is available via the Adanac website at, including a Corporate Presentation and a Ruby Creek Overview in the Investors section. Public filings relating to the Company are available via the Adanac website and on the SEDAR website at
