Homestake Announces Commencement of Drill Program and Arranges Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Homestake Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HSR)(FRANKFURT:B6IH) ("Homestake" or the "Company") reported today that drilling has commenced on the Company's 100% owned Homestake Ridge property in Northwestern BC. The 2014 exploration program is being conducted by Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX:AEM)(NYSE:AEM) ("Agnico Eagle") and is expected to include +7,500 meters of core drilling budgeted at a cost of $3 million. Agnico Eagle has assumed project management under an option agreement to fund exploration and development costs of $25.3 million by December 31, 2017 to earn a 65% interest in the property. Agnico Eagle is in the third year of the six year option.

Drilling is underway on a newly discovered mineralized zone called the Slide target, first identified in 2013 and located southeast of the Homestake Silver deposit (see news release NR-10-13, November 25, 2013). An initial six drill hole program is planned on the Slide target, which will test areas along strike and down dip of hole HR13-253 (see Figure 1).

President Joe Kizis commented, "We look forward to an aggressive drilling campaign at Homestake Ridge this field season. It follows up on a new mineralized zone discovered last year, as well as includes significant step outs from our known deposits that could potentially add to the current NI 43-101-compliant resource. Having a strategic partner like Agnico Eagle in these difficult times allows the company to aggressively advance our project to create additional shareholder value."

The Homestake Ridge project is being advanced as a potential high-grade underground mining operation. The project contains an estimated Inferred Resource of 911,000oz gold and 20,366,000oz silver (1,225,785oz AuEq @ 5.6g/t AuEq grade) and an estimated Indicated Resource of 124,000oz gold and 939,000oz silver (141,000oz AuEq @ 7.3g/t AuEq grade).(1)

To date, 262 holes have been drilled for a total of 74,973 metres, including the project's highlight intercept from the 2008 drill hole HR08-87, which returned an estimated true width intercept of 52.5 metres averaging 20.99 g/t gold and 11.60 g/t silver (See Oct. 02, 2008 press release).

Corporate Update

Homestake plans to issue up to 15,000,000 units in a non-flow-through private placement at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of $750,000. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.05 for a period of 3 years. The Company will pay finders' fees on a portion of the financing. The securities will be subject to a hold period of four months from date of closing.

The net proceeds from this private placement will be used for the continued exploration of the Kinskuch Project and for general working capital purposes. The proposed financing is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The primary asset is the Homestake Ridge Project, a gold-rich epithermal/VMS-related vein system containing NI 43-101 compliant resource estimates.

1.  The current estimate was prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. (RPA)
    utilizing three separate block models constrained by 3D wireframes of
    the mineralized zones. Mineral Resources were constrained using a 2g/t
    AuEq grade shell and CIM definitions were followed for Mineral
    Resources. The block models are comprised of an array of blocks
    measuring 5 m x 5 m x 5 m, with grades for Au, Ag, Cu, AuEq and NSR
    values interpolated using ID3 weighting. The models identified an
    indicated resource of 604,000 tonnes averaging 6.4g/t Au, 48.3g/t Ag and
    0.18% Cu and a cumulative inferred resource of 6,765,000 tonnes
    averaging 4.2g/t Au, 93.6g/t Ag, 0.11% Cu. Mineral Resources are
    estimated using an average long-term gold price of US$1,500 per ounce
    Au, US$27 per ounce Ag, and US$3.50 per pound Cu, with an exchange rate
    of C$1.00=US$1.00. NSR and Gold equivalence were calculated using Au, Ag
    and Cu metallurgical recoveries of 92% Au, 88% Ag and 88% Cu in blocks
    where Cu%greater than 0.1%; and where calculated using just Au and Ag
    recoveries in blocks with less than 0.1% Cu.
