Cornerstone Reduces Miocene (Chile) Property Work Commitments

MOUNT PEARL, NEWFOUNDLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. ("Cornerstone" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE: CGP)(OTCBB: CTNXF)(FRANKFURT: GWN)(BERLIN: GWN) announces that it has further amended the Miocene (Chile) Property Agreement (see news releases dated February 22, 2011 and May 8, 2014), to reduce the $5 million in required exploration expenditures to $2.5 million. The Miocene Project can be viewed on the Cornerstone web site at http://www.cornerstoneresources.com/s/Chile.asp?ReportID=450381.

Under the amended Agreement dated June 27, 2014, Cornerstone now has the right to acquire an undivided 100% interest in any concessions acquired using a proprietary database within the Miocene Project area in return for the following consideration (all references to $ are to Canadian $):

The acquisition is subject to a 2.0% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR"), one-half (1.0%) of which can be purchased by Cornerstone at any time for $1,000,000.

So far, mineral concession applications covering a total of 14,111 hectares (141.1 km2) have been filed which encompass highly prospective ground within the Miocene Project area. Cornerstone has already incurred almost $700,000 in qualified exploration expenditures on the Miocene Project and after the work planned for later this year is completed (see below) will have spent over $1 million, satisfying the exploration work commitment through April 28, 2017. The Company is continuing to seek a partner to help advance exploration on this exciting early-stage project.

The Miocene Project

The Miocene Project, held by Cornerstone's Chilean subsidiary Minera Cornerstone Chile Limitada (MCCL), is located in the Regions of Atacama and Antofagasta of northern Chile, and is targeting epithermal gold-silver and porphyry gold-copper deposits along the interpreted northern extension of the Maricunga magmatic belt which hosts several world-class gold deposits.

A regional exploration program was completed on the Miocene Project during the first half of 2012. Alteration mapping using Aster (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) satellite imagery, combined with historical airborne magnetic survey data and regional geological and structural data, was used to define prospective areas for ground follow up. Reconnaissance geological mapping at a scale of 1:25,000, rock sampling and widely spaced soil sampling (2,000 m by 500 m and 1,000 m by 250 m) were carried out over a large area of 70,000 hectares (70 km2) covering exposed and altered bedrock and adjacent soil and gravel-covered pampas. Soil samples were analyzed utilizing a combination of analytical techniques designed to detect deep and/or buried mineralization. Geological mapping and spectrometry work better defined the alteration zones (type, size and distribution) that were identified by the Aster satellite imagery. Geochemical anomalies were defined for base metals, precious metals and pathfinder elements associated with porphyry gold-copper and epithermal gold-silver styles of mineralization.

Some of the Miocene concessions lie adjacent to Mirasol Resources Ltd.'s newly discovered epithermal high sulphidation Titan and Atlas prospects, where significant gold and silver assay results have been outlined by trenching and reverse circulation drilling. Cornerstone holds a strong land position in this part of the Miocene Belt including approximately 14,000 hectares in the same district. The Company is encouraged by early results from Mirasol's Titan and Atlas projects, which serve to support the conceptual model utilized in acquiring the Miocene concessions.

The Company will re-commence exploration in November 2014 at Miocene (during the Austral summer). Work planned includes detailed satellite imagery, a 4-5 months field program to complete prospecting work, systematic rock and soil sampling over prospective geology/alteration followed by trenching and ground geophysical surveys where appropriate, to define drill targets.
