VANCOUVER, April 20, 2016 /CNW/ - Wealth Minerals Ltd. (the "Company" or "Wealth") - (TSXV: WML; OTCBB: WMLLF; SSE: WMLCL; Frankfurt: EJZ), announces that Mergent Inc's ("Mergent") Editorial Board has approved the Company for a listing in Mergent Manuals and News Reports TM (the "Manual").  Wealth's corporate profile, which includes descriptive text data as well as news and financial statements, will be accessible via Mergent's online and print products.  As part of Mergent's listing services, the new description will be highlighted separately at www.mergent.com.

The Manual is a "recognized securities manual" in 39 states for purposes of Blue Sky Manual Exemption.  First published in 1918, and formerly known as Moody's™ Manuals and News Reports, the publication was rebranded as Mergent Manuals and News Reports™ when Mergent, Inc. acquired Moody's™ Financial Information Services division in 1998.

Wealth's listing in the Manual is intended to facilitate the trading of the Company's common shares in secondary markets and aid the brokerage community in making a market for the Company's stock.  However, as some states have specific requirements, it is recommended that brokers confirm with their compliance/legal department concerning Blue Sky laws in specific states and other regulatory laws that might affect them.
