Braeval Mining Corporation Completes Business Combination with Oban Exploration Limited to Form Oban Mining Corporation

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- Oban Mining Corporation (TSX:BVL) (the "Company") (formerly Braeval Mining Corporation ("Braeval")) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced business combination (the "Business Combination") pursuant to a business combination agreement (the "Business Combination Agreement") dated February 21, 2014 between the Braeval, Oban Exploration Limited ("Oban") and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The Business Combination was effected by way of a three-cornered amalgamation, whereby Oban amalgamated with a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, resulting in the Company acquiring all of Oban's assets.

"We are extremely appreciative of the strong support we received from our shareholders in completing the Business Combination," said Jose Vizquerra, President & CEO of the Company. "We look forward to pursuing a systematic and aggressive exploration program and continuing to build shareholder value."

In connection with the completion of the Business Combination, the Company amended its articles to consolidate its common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation share for every 3.14 pre-consolidation shares and change its name to "Oban Mining Corporation". The common shares of the Company have been conditionally approved to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") and it is expected that the common shares will commence trading on a consolidated basis under the new symbol "OBM" on or about April 22, 2014.

Under the Business Combination, the holders of the common shares of Oban received 0.914 of a common share of the Company (on a post-consolidation basis) for each common share of Oban so held. Upon completion of the Business Combination, including the consolidation, the Company had 99,881,563 common shares issued and outstanding on an undiluted basis, approximately 70% of which are held by former shareholders of Oban and approximately 30% of which are held by former shareholders of Braeval.

The Company will be led by the pre-closing Braeval management team. In addition, the Company's board has been set at six and is comprised of the five members of the pre-closing Braeval board of directors, along with newly-elected director, Bernardo Calderon, who served as a director of Oban.

The Business Combination was subject to certain shareholder approvals, each of which was received by Braeval and Oban at their respective meetings of shareholders, that were both held on April 10, 2014.

The Business Combination is expected to provide significant benefits for shareholders, including the pooling of cash and mineral resources and significant synergies in exploration and development, greater market presence, enhanced liquidity, capital market profile and financial strength in challenging times, operating efficiencies leading to significant cost reductions, and a strong position from which to participate in the anticipated future consolidation in the mining industry.
