KWG Announces Completion of Chromium Intellectual Property Acquisition

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- KWG Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KWG) ("KWG") is pleased to announce the completion of its agreement to acquire fifty-percent of the ownership rights in two United States provisional patent applications relating to the production of chromium iron alloys directly from chromate ore, and the production of low carbon chromium iron alloys directly from chromite concentrates (the "Chromium IP Transaction") announced on April 21, 2014. The Chromium IP Transaction includes the right to use these provisional patent applications as the basis for filing additional patent applications in the United States, Canada and elsewhere worldwide and includes a fifty-percent interest in any of the vendor's associated intellectual property (the "Chromium IP").

The parties' interests in the Chromium IP will be held through a limited partnership (the "LP") established by the vendor and KWG for purposes of completing the Chromium IP Transaction and developing and exploiting the Chromium IP. The limited partners of the LP are a wholly-owned subsidiary of KWG and a corporation beneficially owned by the vendor. The general partner of the LP, which will manage the business of the LP, is another wholly-owned subsidiary of KWG.

The vendor assigned its fifty-percent interest in the Chromium IP to the LP in exchange for 25 million units of KWG (each, a "Unit"), with each Unit comprising one common share of KWG and one common share purchase warrant of KWG exercisable at a price of $0.10 for 5 years from closing.

KWG now has the option to acquire a further 25% interest in the Chromium IP from the vendor (held through the LP) in exchange for the issuance of an additional 12.5 million Units to the vendor at any time within one year (the "First Option"). If the First Option is exercised, KWG will have an additional option to acquire the vendor's remaining 25% interest in the Chromium IP (held through the LP) in exchange for the issuance of a further 12.5 million Units to the vendor at any time within one year after the exercise of the First Option (the "Second Option"), thereby acquiring 100% of the LP.

The closing of the Chromium IP Transaction remains subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About KWG: KWG has a 30% interest in the Big Daddy chromite deposit and the right to earn 80% of the Black Horse chromite where resources are being defined. KWG also owns 100% of Canada Chrome Corporation which has staked claims and conducted a $15 million surveying and soil testing program for the engineering and construction of a railroad to the Ring of Fire from Exton, Ontario.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
