Yellowhead Mining Inc Announces Effective Date of 1 for 12 Share Consolidation

TSX-V: YMI

VANCOUVER, June 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Yellowhead Mining Inc. ("Yellowhead" or the "Company") (TSX-V: YMI), announces that it has received the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") to proceed with the 1 for 12 consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its common shares (the "Common Shares"). The Company was authorized to undertake a consolidation of up to 1 for 12 of the Common Shares by its shareholders at the annual general and special meeting of the Company held on May 10, 2017, subject to receipt of applicable approvals.

Accordingly, effective on June 12, 2017, the Common Shares are expected to commence trading on the Exchange on a post-Consolidation basis. Following the Consolidation, the Company will have 10,313,088 Common Shares issued and outstanding.

The Company will mail a letter of transmittal ("Letter of Transmittal") to its registered holders of Common Shares. The Letter of Transmittal describes the process by which shareholders may obtain new certificates representing their consolidated Common Shares. The Letter of Transmittal must be completed and returned to Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") at the address specified in the Letter of Transmittal. Questions on how to complete the Letter of Transmittal, or requests for additional copies of the Letter of Transmittal, may be directed to Computershare at 1-800-564-6253 or by e-mail to corporateactions@computershare.com. A copy of the Letter of Transmittal may also be obtained from the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

Shareholders that hold their Common Shares through a broker, trust company or other intermediary do not need to complete and submit a Letter of Transmittal, as their intermediary will make arrangements on their behalf for their accounts to be updated for the relevant number of post-consolidation Common Shares that they beneficially hold.
