253 Days ago

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2016) - Greencastle Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VGN) wishes to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it will conduct a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid"). The Bid will be for 3,648,305 common shares of the Company over a period of one year (the "Bid Period"), being approximately 8.5% of Company's issued and outstanding common shares, with up to 855,013 common shares of the Company purchasable over any 30-day period within the Bid Period, being 2% of Company's issued and outstanding common shares. The Bid Period will commence on March 30, 2016, and will continue until the earlier of March 29, 2017, or the date by which the Company has acquired the maximum 3,648,305 common shares which may be purchased under the Bid.

During the period between March 16, 2015, and March 15, 2016, the Company completed the purchase and cancellation of 1,640,000 common shares under its previous normal course issuer bid at a volume weighted average price of $0.06 per share.

Management believes that the market price of the Company's common shares may not fully reflect the value of its business and future prospects, and as such it believes that purchasing its own common shares for cancellation is an appropriate strategy for increasing long-term shareholder value. The purchases will be made through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), and the price at which the Company will purchase its common shares will be the market price of the shares at the time of acquisition. The Company has appointed Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management as its broker to conduct normal course issuer bid transactions.

The Company has 42,750,671 common shares issued and outstanding. Common shares purchased by the Company will be returned to treasury for cancellation.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
