Eco Oro Shareholders Overwhelmingly Support the Reconstitution of their Board

Website www.fixecooro.com launched to provide shareholders with additional information

TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Courtenay Wolfe wishes to thank shareholders of Eco Oro Minerals Corp. (TSX: EOM) ("Eco Oro" or the "Company") for the overwhelming support received to date for the reconstitution of the board of directors of the Company.

"Since the announcement of our requisition, we've been contacted and approached by numerous investors of Eco Oro who have expressed similar concerns about the current board's lack of responsiveness and decisions that are not aligned with shareholder interests. The current leadership is squandering Eco Oro's potential by agreeing to give up 78% of the Company for minimal consideration. The anger and frustration of shareholders is much greater than we imagined. ‎We encourage all shareholders to let your voices be heard and to join us to bring about needed change," Ms. Wolfe said. "It is clear that change is needed at Eco Oro and we look forward to achieving this alongside all shareholders."

For further background on the reasons for the requisition and information regarding the need to fix the Company, we would ask that you visit our website:

All relevant information from our website will also be posted on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. A copy of this press release can also be obtained at www.sedar.com. We would also invite you to review our press release of February 10, 2017, which is incorporated by reference and a copy of which can also be found on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
