Solvista Provides Update on Letter Agreement With IAMGOLD

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- Solvista Gold Corporation ("Solvista" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SVV)(OTCQX:SVVZF) wishes to provide an update on the status of its Letter Agreement (the "Agreement") with IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD"), which Agreement sets out the major terms of a 70% earn-in option agreement, as was previously announced on December 18, 2013.

Under the terms of the Agreement, IAMGOLD will have the right to earn up to a 70% interest in the Company's Caramanta Project (the "Project"), located in Colombia's Mid-Cauca Belt, by completing the following steps:


--  IAMGOLD can earn an initial 51% interest in the Project by investing a
    total of US$18,000,000 (of which US$2,500,000 is a firm commitment) in
    qualifying expenditures, which may include US$900,000 of cash payments
    to Solvista, over a maximum five-year period commencing on December 16,
    2013; and 
    
--  IAMGOLD can earn an additional 19% interest in the Project, for a total
    70% interest, by investing a further US$18,000,000 in qualifying
    expenditures over a maximum three-year period following the completion
    of the initial 51% earn-in. 

Subject to the satisfaction of the aforementioned conditions, and upon completion of IAMGOLD's 51% or 70% earn-in, as IAMGOLD may elect, Solvista and IAMGOLD will enter into a joint venture to hold and advance the Project.

Further details regarding the Agreement are available in the Company's press release dated December 18, 2013.

The Agreement, which is to be replaced by a definitive option agreement in the future, contemplates a "Reviewable Disposition" (as defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V")) of more than 50% of Solvista's assets, business or undertaking. As such, the Agreement remains subject to (i) shareholder approval, which the Company proposes to obtain by way of written consents from holders of a majority of its shares, and (ii) regulatory approval by the TSX-V. Further updates will be announced on the status of the Agreement as appropriate.
