Court Decision on Proposed AER Acquisition of Black Sea

VANCOUVER, Dec. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Alternative Earth Resources Inc. ("AER") (TSX.V: AER) announced that the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court") has rendered its decision with respect to legal proceedings commenced by Jaguar Financial Corp. ("Jaguar") against AER and its directors in connection with the proposed acquisition by AER of Black Sea Copper & Gold Corp. ("BSCG"). In a verbal decision rendered on December 10, 2015, the Court ruled, among other things, that AER cannot complete the acquisition of BSCG until the transaction has been approved by the shareholders of AER at a special meeting of the shareholders. The Court will hear further submissions concerning a recent loan made by AER to BSCG. Refer to the AER News Releases dated November 26, 2015, and December 3, 2015 for additional details.

Management of AER and BSCG shall meet to consider the consequences of the decision of the Court, including a potential appeal, and whether the proposed BSCG transaction, which will expire on December 18, 2015, will be allowed to terminate.
