VVC Receives Documentation for $2 Million Loan and Announces $1.5 Million Private Placement and Debt Conversion

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- VVC Exploration Corporation ("VVC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: VVC) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Camex Mining Development Group Inc. ("Camex") has received the final documentation for a loan of up to US$4 million pursuant to a signed Term Sheet with Aeris Trading Corp. (the "Lender") which was announced by press release dated January 27, 2014. The loan which is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") will provide funds for the completion of the permit and mine planning process on the Samalayuca Copper project in Northern Chihuahua Mexico which is 33.75% owned by VVC. Once the planned pilot mine is operating, the loan will be repaid from the proceeds of VVC's share of the Samalayuca mining revenue.

The loan is for US$2 million initially but can be extended to US$4 million, once mining permits for the Samalayuca Copper Project are received. The first $250,000 will be provided to Camex at the earlier of one month following the final signoff of all documents after receipt of the TSXV acceptance, or September 30, 2014. Subsequent draw-downs will be limited to $500,000 per month thereafter up to US$2 million. Interest on the loan is set at 12% per annum, with the first year's interest prepaid. The loan is for a maximum of 5 years and requires that one half of the revenue to be receives from the Samalayuca Copper pilot mining project be used for loan repayment until the loan is paid in full. In addition, for each $500,000 drawn-down, VVC has agreed to provide to the Lender with 1,000,000 shares of common shares of VVC and 2.000,000 share purchase warrants expiring in 5 years, aggregating 8,000,000 shares and 16,000,000 warrants if the full $4 million is received.

Jim Culver, VVC's President commented: "This loan will provide the Company with much needed funding to advance the Samalayuca Copper project to pilot production. We are pleased with being provided with the opportunity to work with Aeris and look forward to a successful startup of the Samalayuca Copper project."

In addition the Company expects to close, by September 19, 2014, a Private Placement Financing of up to CA$1.5 million representing 30 million units ("Unit" or "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit, subject to the acceptance of the TSXV. Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at $0.12 per share for the first 2 years and at $0.18 for the next 3 years. The net proceeds will be used to cover maintenance fees and option payments on the Company's properties in Mexico, pay accounts payables, general corporate expenses and operating expenses in Mexico.

Also the Company expects to complete a debt conversion of up to CA$200,000 of its accounts payable by issuing up to 4 million Units of the Company at a price of $0.05 per unit, subject to the acceptance of the TSXV. The Debt Conversion Units will be according to similar terms as the Private Placement Units. The debt conversion transaction will close following receipt of the TSXV acceptance and all necessary signed documentation.
