Marret Asset Management Inc. - Issuance of Early Warning Report Pursuant to National Instrument 62-103 in Connection with Acquisition of Shares of Cline Mining Corporation

TORONTO, July 17, 2015 /CNW/ - This press release is being disseminated by Marret Asset Management Inc. (the "Manager"), on behalf of certain accounts managed by it, at the address of 200 King Street West, Suite 1902, Toronto, ON M5H 3T4, as required by National Instrument 62-103 – The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bids and Insider Reporting Issues.

On July 8, 2015, shares of Cline Mining Corporation ("Cline") were received by certain accounts managed by the Manager, as disclosed below, pursuant to a Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) plan of compromise and arrangement. The Accounts held certain debentures of Cline which, following the recapitalization of Cline, were exchanged for shares and additional debt (the "CCAA Plan"). The accounts did not provide any additional consideration to Cline as part of the CCAA Plan and the shares were issued as part of a compromise of debt of Cline.

The following accounts managed by the Manager received securities directly in Cline, as set out below:

The Manager has been told that Cline has voluntarily surrendered its status as a reporting issuer in the Province of British Columbia and will be filing an application for a decision to cease to be a Reporting Issuer in the other Provinces of Canada shortly, in each case on the basis that the Reporting Issuer has fewer than 15 securityholders in any Province of Canada.
