VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- Santa Fe Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SFM) ("SFM" or the "Company") announces it has signed a definitive agreement with Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. ("EPL") specifying the terms for an earn-In option (the "Option") to acquire a 60% interest in EPL's Iron Range Project ("Iron Range"). Iron Range hosts the same stratigraphic rock assemblage as the historic Sullivan Mine, one of the largest sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) silver-lead-zinc deposits in the world, located approximately 60-km north east of Iron Range.

As previously announced on March 18, 2014, Iron Range has had abundant exploration success and many defined targets. SFM and EPL plan to focus on Sullivan-time stratigraphy and the regional-scale fault complex at Iron Range for sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) and Iron-Oxide-Cu-Au (IOCG) target types on the property. The 630 km2 Iron Range project, located near Creston, BC, is owned 100% by EPL subject to a 1% NSR on a portion of the claim group. A complete description of past drill and other exploration results can be viewed at http://www.eagleplains.com/projects/bc/ironrange/.

The Option comprises a commitment by SFM over a 5-year period to earn a 60% interest in Iron Range by incurring exploration expenditures on Iron Range, issuing SFM shares and making cash payments to EPL, subject to regulatory approval including without limitation that of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"):


--  On Exchange approval: issuing 1 million SFM shares

    expenditures, and issuing an additional 1 million SFM shares and an
    additional $25K in cash;

    in exploration expenditures, and issuing an additional 1 million SFM
    shares and an additional $150K in cash; and,

    in exploration expenditures, and issuing an additional 1 million SFM
    shares and an additional $200K in cash. 

All securities issued by SFM in connection herewith will have a statutory four month hold period.

When all of the conditions of the definitive agreement have been met and SFM has exercised the Option, a 60/40 joint venture will be formed to advance Iron Range. EPL will be the operator of the Iron Range project during the term of the Option.
