Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. Provides Operating and Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: MLN)(OTCQX: MLNGF) ("Marlin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an operating and corporate update. The ramp-up at Marlin's wholly owned La Trinidad mine in Sinaloa, Mexico ("La Trinidad") continues, with commercial production expected to be reached by the end of the third quarter. Through June 16, 2014, 867,986 tonnes of material have been mined from the Taunus and Bocas pits and 476,508 tonnes of material have been crushed and placed on the leach pad. Gold recoveries and grade reconciliation to the block model are behaving as expected. We are producing gold on a monthly basis, with total gold production and gold in solution to date of 1,892 ounces. As of today our cash balance is approximately $10.15 million with an additional $3.4 million in refundable tax receivables.

Mine Optimization Aims to Accelerate Mining of High Grade Material

Marlin's management and board of directors have embarked on an optimization program to accelerate the development of the main Taunus pit, with the objective of getting to the high grade "HS Zone" as quickly as possible. It is our expectation that the high grade zone will be mined materially sooner than what was contemplated in our June 2012 PEA. The HS Zone has been extensively drilled by Marlin and its predecessors, with select significant intercepts such as:

A more detailed discussion of the Company's drill results can be found in the "Amended NI43-101 Technical Report, Preliminary Economic Assessment, Trinidad/Taunus Project, Sinaloa, Mexico", originally dated June 1, 2012 as amended July 12, 2012 (the "June 2012 PEA"), prepared by SRK Consulting (U.S.) Inc. and available under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

Advancement of Golden Reign Streaming Transaction

An internal scoping study at Golden Reign Resource Ltd.'s ("Golden Reign") San Albino Gold Project in Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua was recently completed. Prepared by Sonoran Resources LLC, the nominated EPCM firm, it is anticipated that this scoping study will form the basis of a preliminary economic assessment, which will provide the details of the mine design and plant throughput capacity, with the objective of bringing the San Albino Gold Project into production as quickly and efficiently as possible using Sonoran Resources as the nominated EPCM contractor.

Marlin and Sailfish Royalty Corp. ("Sailfish", Marlin's wholly-owned subsidiary) are pleased to announce that negotiations on the principal transactional documents for the equity and streaming transaction (the "Golden Reign Transaction") have continued to progress. Subject to the satisfaction of the remaining conditions, including finalization of the security documents by local Nicaraguan counsel, the parties expect that the Golden Reign Transaction will close in the coming weeks. Further details on the Golden Reign Transaction are available in our press release dated February 26, 2014.

Share Consolidation

Contemporaneously with the closing of the Golden Reign Transaction, and subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, Marlin expects to complete the previously announced share consolidation of its outstanding common shares on a 10:1 ratio (the "Share Consolidation"). The Share Consolidation was previously approved by Marlin's shareholders at the Company's May 16, 2014 annual general and special meeting of shareholders.

Management Changes

Marlin announces the resignation of Priscila Costa Lima as the Company's Chief Financial Officer and of Mimy Fernandez-Maldonado as of the Company's Corporate Secretary. Effective immediately, Marlin is pleased to announce that Mr. Scott Kelly has been appointed as the Company's Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary. Mr. Kelly has extensive experience as an officer and consultant to junior mining and exploration companies having served in similar capacities with other issuers since 2004.

This management change will save the company approximately $13,000 per month, and management will continue to look for cost savings to make sure our industry low general and administrative expenses are even lower.
