Benton Provides Results of Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Benton Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BTC) ("Benton" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the results of its Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders held on July 8, 2014 in Vancouver, BC. At the meeting, shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of all items proposed. In particular shareholders voted to re-appoint Wasserman Ramsay, Chartered Accountants as the Company's auditor, and elected the Company's nominees for director: Stephen Stares, John Harper, Clinton Barr, Michael Stares and William Harper. Shareholders also approved the Company's acquisition of Folium Life Science Inc., a private BC company carrying on business exclusively in the medical marijuana sector. Shareholders resolved by special resolution the Company's intention to make an application for a share consolidation on a 2:1 basis which would result in the Company having 38,136,766 of its shares issued and outstanding as well as the Company's intention to make an application to change its name to Folium Life Science Inc. or some such similar name as the board of directors of the Company may determine.

Finally, shareholders approved by special resolution the Company's previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") and arrangement agreement pursuant to Division 5 of part 9 - Arrangements of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). The Arrangement is to facilitate the distribution of the Coro Mining Corp. shares (the "Coro Shares") to the Benton Shareholders as part of the reorganizing of the Company's business. The Company believes that distributing the Coro Shares to the Benton Shareholders and focusing its resources on the emerging medical marijuana industry is in the best interests of the Company and the Benton Shareholders. This separation will enable the Company to focus on developing itself as a leader in the medical marijuana industry while providing the Benton Shareholders with the right to participate directly in the success of Coro. The Company's management continues to believe that Coro will emerge as a successful developer of quality economic copper projects.

Upon the closing of the Arrangement, each Benton Shareholder of record as at the effective time on the date upon which the Arrangement becomes effective will receive one new common share in the capital of the Company (the "New Share") and its pro-rata share of the Coro Shares, which, as at the date hereof, would be approximately 0.8 Coro Shares for each Benton common share held (the "Benton Shares"). The New Shares will be identical in every material respect to the Benton Shares. The Company expects that shareholders will receive their Coro Shares in the next 10 to 15 business days.

Following the meeting, the board of directors appointed the following officers: Stephen Stares as President and CEO, Evan Asselstine as CFO, Clinton Barr as Vice President Exploration, and Gordon Fretwell as Corporate Secretary.

The Company would also like to announce that Raphael Gerstel declined to be nominated as a director of the Company, but will remain as a director of Benton Resources Inc. Benton would like to thank Raphael for his service as a director and member of the Benton team and wishes him every success in the future.

Stephen Stares, Company President and CEO stated "We are pleased that our shareholders have approved our acquisition of Folium Life Science Inc. and look forward to closing the transaction as soon as possible, subject to receiving all final regulatory approvals."
