TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISSEMINATION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES

TOLIMA GOLD INC. ("Tolima") (TSX VENTURE: TOM) is pleased to announce today that it has restructured the terms of its proposed divestiture of mining concessions and other assets in Colombia (the "Properties").

Pursuant to a share purchase agreement dated December 4, 2013 (the "Original Agreement") among Remedios Gold Holdings S.A. ("Remedios Gold"), Remedios Gold S.A.S. ("Remedios SAS"), Herbo Assets S.A. ("Herbo") and Tolima Gold (Barbados) Corp., each of which are subsidiaries of Tolima (collectively, the "Sellers") and Wolverine Minerals Corp. ("Wolverine") (TSX VENTURE: WLV), Wolverine agreed to acquire up to an 80% interest in Remedios Gold from Herbo. In connection with the Original Agreement, Wolverine provided Herbo $700,000 by way of a loan (the "Loan") secured against 51% of the shares of Remedios Gold.

Under the amended terms (the "Transaction"), Wolverine will purchase a 90% interest in Remedios Gold from Herbo in consideration of an aggregate of $1,200,000 ($700,000 of which will be paid by forgiveness of the Loan and $500,000 of which will be paid on closing). On closing, a 90% interest in Remedios Gold will be transferred to Wolverine, with 30% held in escrow subject to the completion of work commitments of $2,000,000. For each $1,000,000 in work commitments, a 15% interest in Remedios Gold will be released to Wolverine. As additional consideration, Wolverine will grant the Sellers a 2.5% net smelter return royalty (the "Royalty") on production from the five mining concessions, covering a total area of over 524 hectares, in the Remedios/Segovia mining district in Antioquia, Colombia, that contains an existing mine. An additional mining property may be added to the Transaction subject to satisfaction of certain conditions. If such property is added, Wolverine has agreed to pay Herbo an additional $500,000 and issue 500,000 common shares of Wolverine, subject to compliance with applicable securities laws. The additional mining property would be subject to the Royalty. The Transaction also includes a three kilometer area of interest provision. Wolverine will also be granted a right of first refusal to purchase the Royalty from time to time.

The parties are working to finalize the form of definitive agreement for the Transaction. Completion of the Transaction will be subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
