Camino Minerals Raises $800,000 to Fund Drilling at Red Beds Project

TSX Venture Symbol: COR

VANCOUVER, July 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Camino Minerals Corporation ("Camino" or the "Company") (COR: TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $800,000 which will be used to fund an initial drill program at the Red Beds Project, Department of Cuzco, Peru, and for general working capital.  The proceeds from this financing are in addition to the approximately $590,000 that will be received from the recent sale of Mexican assets (see the Company's news release dated June 24, 2015).

The non-brokered private placement consisted of 4,000,000 units at a price of $0.20 per unit, each unit being comprised of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant. The common shares are subject to a four month period expiring November 18, 2015.  Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 per common share until January 17, 2017. The warrants are subject to an acceleration right in favour of the Company: should the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange be $0.35 or higher for ten consecutive trading days, the Company will be entitled to accelerate the expiry of the warrants to the date that is 30 business days from the date of the issuance of a news release by the Company announcing the exercise of the acceleration right.

The Red Beds Project is a sediment hosted copper deposit.  Prospecting and channel sampling have currently defined 12 beds of high grade copper-silver mineralization.  These beds have an exposed cumulative strike extent in excess of 25 kilometers, range in width from 0.3 to 3.0 meters, and generally range in grade from 0.5% to 5% copper, with 10 to 50 grams per tonne silver.  Local values range up to +10% copper and +100 grams per tonne silver, with one high grade lens returning a value of 28% copper and 741 grams per tonne silver.

Preparations are underway to begin a Phase 1 drill program at Red Beds in Q3, 2015.  An updated plan showing the location of the high grade beds and surface sampling is available on the Company's website.

Kenneth C. McNaughton, M.A.Sc., P.Eng., the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, is a Qualified Person (QP) and is responsible for the Red Beds Project exploration program.
