("Eco Oro" or the "Company") (TSX: EOM) announces that media in Colombia are reporting that a press conference will be held in Bucaramanga on Friday December 19, 2014 at which the boundaries of the Páramo of Santurbán will be officially announced.

Until that assessment has been completed, any views regarding impacts on Eco Oro or its properties are speculative.
