Handa Closes Fundamental Acquisition

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- Handa Copper Corporation ("Handa Copper") - (TSX VENTURE: HEC) announces that it has closed its fundamental acquisition (the "Acquisition"), originally announced on April 29, 2014. In connection with closing of the Acquisition, Handa Copper acquired 20% of the outstanding shares of each of Renaissance Copper Limited and Nirvana Minerals Limited (the "Companies") for aggregate consideration of US$400,000, plus permitting fees and other charges in the aggregate of US$24,125 levied on the Projects (as defined below) by the Government of the Republic of Congo.

The Companies are the indirect owners of the Maboudou and the Banda-Kayes projects (the "Projects"), located in the Republic of Congo. Handa Copper has an option to earn up to a 100% interest in each of the Companies as summarized in its news release dated April 29, 2014. Upon acquiring a 100% interest in either Company, such interest will become subject to: (a) an interest equal to at least 10% of the applicable Project being taken by the Government of the Republic of Congo; and (b) a royalty payable to the vendor equal to 1.455% of the production revenue from the applicable Project.

Jon Stacey, President of Handa Copper, stated: "I am delighted that the acquisition has been closed timeously. Since the original announcement in April, Handa has been gathering historical data and consolidating our geological understanding and we are now able to take full advantage of the Congolese dry season to initiate the exploration activities".

A National Instrument 43-101 geological report for the Projects has been prepared in connection with the Acquisition and will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Projects

The Maboudou project is located within the department of Niari in northwestern Republic of Congo and consists of a land package covering approximately 3,000 square kilometres. The Banda Kayes project has a land package totalling approximately 5,100 square kilometres and is located in the department of Bouenza in the south of the country. Both areas are underlain by the Neoproterozoic metasediments of the West Congolian Belt, a highly prospective geological belt that traverses the Republic of Congo and extends north into Gabon and south into the Democratic Republic of Congo.
