TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Mr. Grant Hall reports:

Brigadier Gold Ltd. ("Brigadier") (TSX VENTURE:BRG) has signed a letter with a shareholder of Mexican Copper Mines (Guernsey) Ltd. ("Mexican") that sets out the terms and conditions with which Brigadier will acquire 70% of the outstanding shares of Mexican which owns through its subsidiary Molycomex S. A. de C. V. an undivided right, title and interest (the "Acquisition") in 5 additional Cuatro Cienegas District mineral properties in Mexico (the "Assets") through the subsidiary Molycomex S.A. de C.V.

Brigadier will issue 20,000,000 consolidated treasury shares (following a consolidation of its outstanding shares on a 10 for one basis, to be presented to a special shareholder meeting), subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. In addition, Brigadier will issue warrants with the following terms:

(a) If Brigadier obtains, within three (3) years from completing the Acquisition, a report prepared in conformity with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") disclosing that the Assets contain 200,000 tonnes of ore, with a grade of not less than 1.5% copper equivalent, then the warrant holder may exercise the warrant and acquire that number of shares which, when multiplied by the twenty (20) day prior weighted average market price of Brigadier's consolidated shares, equals a value of US$1,000,000;

(b) If Brigadier obtains, within four (4) years from completing the Acquisition, a report prepared in conformity with the requirements of NI 43-101 disclosing that the Assets contain 500,000 tonnes of ore, with a grade of not less than 1.5% copper equivalent, then the warrant holder may exercise the warrant and acquire that number of shares which, when multiplied by the twenty (20) day prior weighted average market price of Brigadier's consolidated shares, equals a value of US$1,500,000;

In connection with the Acquisition, Mexican Copper Mines (Guernsey) Ltd. has agreed to amend the terms of a 5 year 12% US$2,250,000 debenture issued by Molycomex S.A. de C.V. to it, such that the debenture shall become convertible at a price of $0.25 CAD per share, at the option of Mexican Copper Mines (Guernsey) Ltd.

Subject to Exchange approval, Brigadier Gold will pay a finders fee to an unrelated third party in connection with this transaction by the issuance of 2 million post consolidated shares in the Company subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Concurrent with the completion of the Transaction, Brigadier will complete a private placement of its Consolidated Shares to raise a minimum of US$2,000,000 and a maximum of US3,000,000 at a price of $0.25 CAD per Consolidated Share, subject to the consent of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About the Assets

The properties are situated in the State of Coahuila, Mexico, almost adjacent to Brigadier's Granizo and Don Indio Properties, some 50 km southeast of the town of Cuatro Cienegas. The Properties lie along the foot of the Sierra San Marcos y Pinos range and are composed of 5 concessions, totalling 14,859 ha, namely: the Apache 4, Apache 14, San Antonio, Jabali and Jabali 2 concessions. The Apache 14, San Antonio, Jabali and Jabali 2 concessions all fall within the Apache 4 concession. Mexican Copper Mines has a 100% interest in the Apache 4 concession and a 70% interest in the Apache 14, San Antonio, Jabali and Jabali 2 concessions. There are 3 additional concessions, which lie within the Apache 4 concession that are not owned by Mexican Copper Mines, namely the Martha (210 ha) and the two El Ojito claims (43 ha and 83 ha respectively).

On the Mexican Copper Mines' Properties, stratabound copper-silver mineralization occurs within arenites and arkoses at the top of the Lower Cretaceous San Marcos Formation, just below a zone of carbonaceous beds grading into limestones of the Lower Cretaceous Cupido Formation. The stratabound Cu-Ag mineralization can be traced in outcrop for some 40 km northwest to southeast and has an, as yet, undefined down-dip extension to the northeast. The mineralization occurs in 1.7 m- to 5.69 m-thick, concordant layers referred to as "mantos". The mantos carry Cu and Ag minerals, (predominantly supergene chrysocolla, malachite, azurite and tenorite). Small amounts of primary copper sulphide minerals, such as chalcocite and argentite, occur within the quartz cement of the arenites, Exploration during 2012 revealed mantos carrying grades of 0.2 to 18.0 % copper and 2 to 592 g/t silver.

There are presently five main showings on the Mexican Copper Mines' Properties, namely: the Buena Suerte, San Antonio, Ojitos, Emes and Las Juanitas showings. The Buena Suerte and San Antonio showings are currently the primary exploration targets.

The San Antonio and Buena Suerte showings are part of one continuous manto, which has a thickness of 1.4 to 4.25 m and has been traced continuously along strike for 1.2 km. Calculated weighted sample averages from the San Antonio-Buena Suerte manto indicate grades of between 0.02 to 4.91% Cu and 1 to 51 g/t Ag. Localized sample intervals show enrichment in Cu and Ag: a 0.48 m zone of 4.26% Cu, a 0.75 m zone of 5.77% Cu, a 0.70 m zone of 14.9% Cu and 91 g/t Ag, a 0.79 m zone of 5.87% Cu, and a 0.85 m zone of 159 g/t Ag. The down-dip extent of this manto remains open for the San Antonio and Buena Suerte showings.

The Ojitos showing, discovered in 2011, has a mineralized thickness of 0.5 to 5.69 m, with calculated weighted trench-sample averages ranging from 0.03 to 3.66% Cu and 1 to 583 g/t Ag. Locally, mineralized zones show enrichment in Cu and Ag: a 0.80 m zone of 18.05% Cu, a 1.30 m zone of 9.79% Cu, a 2.49 m zone of 6.93% Cu, a 0.64 m zone of 16.75% Cu and 592 g/t Ag, a 0.66 m zone of 5.81% Cu and 197 g/t Ag, and a 0.70 m zone of 583 g/t Ag.

Some 1.5 km northwest of Ojitos is the Emes showing, also discovered in 2011. A grab sample from this manto carried 2.65% Cu and 48 g/t Ag.

The northernmost showing on the Mexican Copper Mines' Property is Las Juanitas. This showing is situated stratigraphically deeper than the above-mentioned showings (within the L. Cretaceous San Marcos Formation). The manto has a thickness of 0.4 to 2.0 m and grades 0.01 to 2.83 % Cu and 1 to 63 g/t Ag. Locally, mineralized zones show enrichment in Cu and Ag, including a 0.5 m zone of 2.83% Cu and 63 g/t Ag. The down-dip extension, as with the other showings, is yet to be defined by drilling.

It is postulated that these Cu-Ag bearing mantos were generated when deep, hot, oilfield basinal brines leached Cu and Ag (plus a spectrum of other elements including Zn, Pb) from sedimentary and igneous rocks. During an orogenic phase, these hot, metalliferous brines migrated towards the surface through the Cretaceous strata. The fluids then encountered an oxidation/reduction boundary in the Lower Cretaceous strata and thus Cu and Ag sulphides were precipitated. Subsequent interaction with oxidizing ground waters partially broke down the metal sulphides and deposited the secondary copper and silver minerals.

Sediment-hosted copper deposits are traditionally classified into two types: the Kupferschiefer type and the redbed type. The Cu-Ag deposits of the Cuatro Cienegas area belong to the latter redbed type. Elsewhere in North America redbed copper deposits, similar to those around Cuatro Cienegas, occur at Las Vigas (Chihuahua, Mexico), Spar Lake (Montana, USA), Rock Creek and Montanore (Montana, USA), and Creta (Oklahoma, USA). Evidence from recent exploration reveals characteristics of the Cu-Ag deposits on the Mexican Copper Mines' Properties which bear many striking similarities to the deposits of the Copper Belt of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which have to date produced in excess of 1 billion tonnes of copper metal from ores with an average grade of approximately 2.7% Cu, together with significant quantities of Ag.
