Oakmont Minerals Announces Bridge Loan to GreenPower Motor Company

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Oakmont Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE: OMK) ("Oakmont") and GreenPower Motor Company Inc. ("GreenPower") today announce that, in connection with the proposed acquisition of GreenPower by Oakmont (the "Acquisition"), as previously announced in the joint news release of Oakmont and GreenPower of November 25, 2013, they have entered into a loan agreement dated December 20, 2013 (the "Loan Agreement") pursuant to which Oakmont has made a bridge loan to GreenPower in the principal amount of $200,000 (the "Loan"). The Loan is secured by the assets and shares of GreenPower's operating subsidiary, GP GreenPower Industries Inc. ("GPI"), pursuant to the terms of a general security agreement dated December 20, 2013 (the "GSA") between Oakmont, GreenPower and GPI, and a security pledge agreement dated December 20, 2013 (the "Pledge Agreement") between Oakmont and GreenPower.

The principal balance of the Loan and interest accrued thereon may be repaid, in whole or in part, by GreenPower at any time and from time to time, without bonus or penalty, provided that any amounts repaid may not be reborrowed. To the extent not already repaid, the outstanding balance of the Loan and interest accrued thereon shall be immediately due and payable on the date that is the later of: (i) nine months from the date that the Loan is advanced by Oakmont to GreenPower, and (ii) the date that is three months after the termination of the Acquisition without completion thereof (in either case, the "Maturity Date"). The Loan bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum, calculated and compounded monthly based on the number of days actually elapsed in a 365 day year, and will be payable on the Maturity Date.

Completion of the Acquisition is subject to a number of conditions, including the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and the approval of the disinterested shareholders of Oakmont and GreenPower. The Acquisition cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared by Oakmont in connection with the Acquisition, any information released or received with respect to the Acquisition may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of Oakmont should be considered highly speculative.

The TSXV has in no way passed upon the merits of the proposed Acquisition and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this press release.

OAKMONT MINERALS CORP.                      GREENPOWER MOTOR COMPANY INC.
