LIBERTY LAKE, WASHINGTON--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2016) - Hunt Mining Corp. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HMX). Further to its news release dated February 10, 2016 with respect to the proposed acquisition of the Martha mine in Santa Cruz Province, Argentina from an Argentinian subsidiary of Coeur Mining, Inc., the Corporation provides the following status update. The Corporation is scheduled to close the purchase of the Martha mine, flotation mill, equipment and buildings for US$2.7 million on March 25, 2016, subject to satisfying certain closing conditions, including the approval of Argentina's National Secretary of Mining (SMN) and TSX Venture Exchange approval.

The terms for payment are US$1.2 million payable at closing, with the balance of US$1.5 million payable 365 days after the closing. The Corporation has made arrangements to secure the necessary financing for the acquisition, details of which will be disclosed on closing.

The Corporation intends to retain an independent qualified person to prepare a technical report for the Martha mine in compliance with National Instrument 43-101-Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (the "Report"), which Report is expected to be received on or about July 31, 2016. A further news release will be issued by the Corporation when the Report is available, providing further details about the Martha mine.

Investors are cautioned that until the Report is prepared and disclosed, there may not be sufficient information about the Martha mine so as to enable investors to make a reasonable investment decision about the transaction.

Completion of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions, as noted above, including, TSXV acceptance. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed by the proposed closing date. In addition, there are a number of customary conditions to closing of the transaction contemplated by the definitive agreement and there can be no guarantee that all such conditions will be satisfied in accordance with the terms of the definitive agreement. The Corporation will issue a press release on closing containing the details of additional terms of the transaction and the financing.
