VANCOUVER, Dec. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Catalyst Copper Corp. ("Catalyst" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE: CCY) announces that the TSX Venture Exchange has approved a share consolidation.

About La Verde
La Verde is located in an area with excellent infrastructure: Roads, rail, water and power. Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico's third largest port on the Pacific Ocean is 180 km from the site. Significant upside potential remains for the two known zones of porphyry style copper, gold and silver mineralization as drill programs have shown both deposits remain open to depth and along strike.
