Quia Announces Sale of San Lucas Gold Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Quia Resources Inc. ("Quia" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QIA) announces that it has entered into an agreement with Enneract Corporation ("Enneract"), a private Panamanian company, to sell its subsidiary, San Lucas Gold Corp, which holds the San Lucas gold property in Colombia, subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The transaction is an arm's-length transaction and no finder's fee is payable in connection with the agreement. A former director of Quia has an interest in Enneract.

Under the terms of the agreement, Quia will receive a number of common shares resulting in an equity ownership of 5% of Enneract, as well as a 2% net smelter return royalty (the "Royalty"), of which Enneract can buy back half for US $500,000. In addition, Quia has a right to participate in financings of Enneract to maintain its pro-rata position and a right of first refusal with respect to the sale or joint-venture of the property. The sale will result in a reduction in the Company's liabilities as of March 31, 2014 by $397,778.87. The purchaser of the subsidiary is acquiring the subsidiary including its liabilities, and therefore those liabilities will no longer be the obligation of Quia and will no longer be part of the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Mr. Banks, Quia's CEO, commented: "Conditions in Colombia and in the financial markets have made it challenging to continue to advance the San Lucas project. The sale significantly improves our balance sheet, allows us to further streamline our operation, and enables us to focus on our agromineral strategy which is rapidly developing. We also maintain exposure to the upside potential of San Lucas through our equity ownership in Enneract, the Royalty and our other rights."

Debenture Closing

The Company has received all required approvals for the closing of the first tranche of its secured convertible debenture financing as described in its press release dated June 4, 2014, and the closing of the first tranche in the amount of $340,286.30 has been completed.

The term of the agreement will be for a period of 12 months commencing June 17, 2014 (the "Commencement Date") and expiring on June 16, 2015, subject to the right of the Company to terminate the agreement on 30 days notice after December 16, 2014. The Company will pay a fee of $5,000 per month and issue 150,000 stock options to Investor Cubed. Each option will be exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company. Subject to the options being issued under the terms and conditions of the Company's stock option plan, the options will be issued quarterly in four tranches of 37,500 each with the first tranche being issued as of the Commencement Date, and with the exercise price per share for the options being set at $0.10. This agreement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
