RB Energy Announces Completion of Business Combination

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- RB Energy Inc. ("RB Energy") is pleased to announce the completion of the previously announced arrangement (the "Arrangement") involving Sirocco Mining Inc. (TSX:SIM) ("Sirocco") and Canada Lithium Corp. (TSX:CLQ)(OTCQX:CLQMF) ("Canada Lithium").

Under the Arrangement, Canada Lithium acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Sirocco, such that Sirocco became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canada Lithium, for consideration consisting of 1.175 common shares of Canada Lithium on a pre-consolidation basis (representing approximately 0.3916 common shares of Canada Lithium on a post-consolidation basis) for each outstanding common share of Sirocco (the "Exchange Ratio") and Sirocco and Canada Lithium then amalgamated. Additionally, outstanding options to acquire Sirocco common shares were deemed to be exchanged for options to acquire Canada Lithium common shares, adjusted to reflect the Exchange Ratio. As a result of the Arrangement, Canada Lithium issued approximately 294 million common shares on a pre-consolidation basis (representing approximately 98 million common shares on a post-consolidation basis). The total consideration payable pursuant to the Arrangement valued Sirocco's equity at approximately C$120 million.

Upon completion of and in connection with the Arrangement, Canada Lithium consolidated its outstanding common shares (including the common shares issued to former shareholders of Sirocco under the Arrangement) on the basis of one new common share for every three existing common shares and changed its name to RB Energy Inc. (including Energie RB Inc. in its French form).

Both the Sirocco common shares and the Canada Lithium common shares (on a pre-consolidation basis) are expected to continue to trade, as applicable, on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and the OTCQX Marketplace (the "OTCQX") until on or about February 4, 2014. Following this time, the Sirocco common shares will be de-listed from the TSX and applications will be made for Sirocco to cease to be a reporting issuer in the applicable jurisdictions. The Canada Lithium common shares are expected to commence trading on the TSX and the OTCQX on a post-consolidation basis under the name "RB Energy Inc." on or about February 5, 2014. The new stock symbol for RB Energy Inc. will be "RBI" on the TSX. The new OTCQX symbol is not yet known at this time.

RB Energy will be hosting a conference call at 10:00 a.m. (EST) / 7:00 a.m. (PST) on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 to review the Arrangement transaction, discuss current operations and expectations of RB Energy going forward. To access the call, please dial:
