NWM Mining Corporation Provides Update on Arrangement Agreement with GFM Minera and Global Resource Fund


TORONTO, July 7, 2015 /CNW/ - NWM Mining Corporation ("NWM" or the "Company") (TSX-V:NWM) announces that the Company has mailed copies of its Management Information Circular ("MIC") containing details of the definitive arrangement agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") with GFM Minera S.A.P.I. de C.V. ("GFMM"), and one of its affiliates, and the Company's lender, Global Resource Fund ("Global").  Pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement GFMM will acquire, for cash, all of the issued and outstanding common shares of NWM ("NWM Shares") for $0.005 per share subject to a court-approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario). A copy of the MIC document is also available publicly on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

The Company has scheduled an annual general meeting ("AGM") for July 15, 2015 to be held at 2:00pm at Minden Gross LLP located at 145 King Street West, Toronto followed by a special meeting to approve the Arrangement Agreement.  Company management and directors have unanimously recommended that the shareholders vote IN FAVOUR of the Arrangement Resolution as it provides liquidity for the current shareholders and avoids less favourable outcomes including insolvency and bankruptcy.

Darren Koningen, President & CEO of NWM, stated: "The Arrangement Agreement is essential for the Company's future. At the gold price levels seen over the last 12 months, the revenues generated by the Company's operation in Mexico have not allowed it to make any debt and interest payments during this time. The operation urgently requires a significant capital injection in order to expand production levels and help to lower costs. This is not possible given the Company's current financial situation.  After an exhaustive and comprehensive process of reviewing the strategic alternatives available to the Company, and in light of current equity capital market conditions for junior gold miners, we believe this is the most attractive option to preserve value for our shareholders".

Shareholders are urged to submit their proxies in support of the Arrangement prior the deadline of July 13 in order to ensure that the Arrangement is approved.  Further details of the background and reasons for the proposed Arrangement are outlined in the MIC.

Interested parties can also visit the Company's website at www.nwmmining.ca for a copy of the Management Information Circular document as well as other updated news and documentation related to the Arrangement.  NWM has retained IFCIC Ltd. to solicit proxies in favour of the Arrangement.  IFCIC Ltd. will be paid a success-based fee of up to $60,000 based on attaining designated proxy thresholds.
