Oracle Mining Reports Additional Drill Results From 2014 Drill Program

Drilling intersects 50.0 feet of 5.5% CuEQ including 9.4 feet of 11.3% CuEQ at Oracle Ridge Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Oracle Mining Corp. ("Oracle Mining" or the "Corporation") (TSX:OMN)(FRANKFURT:OMC) announces additional drill results from the 2014 Drill Program.

The core holes reported in this news release were drilled from Drill Station 3 with the purpose of extending high-grade copper mineralization beyond the drilling that defines our current Mineral Resource Estimate. Until further drilling is completed and a geologic model constructed, true widths cannot be determined from the information available and all intervals reported in this news release are apparent thicknesses. All units are imperial unless otherwise noted. Highlights include:


--  OUH-63 hit moderate grades in B12 41 (Martin Formation Upper) indicating
    there is another potential copper-bearing skarn bed below the high grade
    skarn designated as B12 30. Based upon drill intersections to date
    (including from other drill holes), the high-grade copper and silver in
    B12 30 may have dimensions of 800 feet by 500 feet and is open in at
    least two directions. OUH-63 refines the Corporation's geological
    understanding and the importance of higher grade mineralization in
    extending high-grade copper mineralization beyond the drilling that
    defines our current Mineral Resource Estimate. 

--  OUH-62 assay results are low grade as drilling only hit mineralization
    on the upper 41 (Martin Formation). The Corporation's geology team
    believes drilling did not reach the mineralization in the Escabrosa
    Formation because may have been drilling parallel to the target in B12
    30. 

Intervals in the table below labelled "includes" are higher-grade portions of the previous listed interval. The following tabulates the assay results obtained from the underground drilling program to date:

(i)CuEQ - Copper equivalency has been estimated using metal pricing of $2.80 per pound of copper, $20 per ounce of silver and $1,300 per ounce of gold. Metallurgical recovery were derived from preliminary lock cycle test results and assumed to be 81% for gold and silver. The formula used is as follows: CuEQ = Cu% + ((Ag oz/t x $20 x 0.81) + (Au oz/t x $1,300 x 0.81))/$2.80/2,000 x 100.

There are no known drilling, recovery or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data. Oracle Mining has posted an updated diagram of all drill hole locations of these reported assay results at www.oracleminingcorp.com/_resources/images/2014_Zone_12_intersects.pdf.

The assay results reported today are the final results received following Oracle Mining's announcement earlier in May to temporarily suspend the 2014 Drill Program, reduce expenditures and manage remaining financial resources while evaluating Third Party Options and continuing to advance permitting.

Data Verification

The drill program and sampling protocol were managed by qualified persons employed by Oracle Mining. The Corporation maintains a rigorous QA/QC protocol on all aspects of sampling and analytical procedure. Drill core is checked, logged, marked for sampling and split in half. The sample length varies depending on the geology and the mineralization. In general, the samples are about 5 feet long. Drill core recovery was excellent and exceeded 90 per cent. One-half of each drill core is maintained for future reference and one-half of each drill core is sent for analysis. Half-core samples are shipped to Skyline Assayer and Laboratories ("Skyline"), in Tucson, Arizona, an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory. Skyline is contracted to complete all sample preparation and assaying and is independent of Oracle Mining. Samples are analyzed employing acid digestion and Atomic Absorption for analyses of copper, as well as fire assaying for silver and gold. For QA/QC purposes, Oracle Mining inserts standard reference materials and blank samples into each sample batch submitted for assay to monitor laboratory performance. The Corporation periodically submits the pulps of the samples assayed by its primary lab to ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. in Reno, Nevada for check analysis.

Kevin Francis RM SME, Vice President Technical Services of Oracle Mining, a non-independent "qualified person" within the meaning of NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information included in this news release.
