240 Days ago

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2016) - Lara Exploration Ltd., ("Lara" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LRA) announced on November 9, 2015 an initial resource estimate for its Maravaia Copper Gold Deposit, located within its Curionopolis exploration license in northern Brazil. Following a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, Lara was advised that the technical report filed on November 9, 2015 in support of the Maravaia resource estimate did not fully comply with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Lara has worked with the report author to revise the report and believes it now complies with NI 43-101. Despite such revision, there are no material differences in the resource estimate for the Osmar Target, which is the principal component of the Maravaia Deposit. The report no longer estimates a resource for the Galpão Target and Lara's previous disclosure of a resource for the Galpão Target should not be relied upon until the estimate is verified and supported by a NI 43-101 compliant technical report. The revised report has been filed on SEDAR.
