Tintina Resources' Black Butte Copper Project Obtains Approval for Exploration Decline

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- Tintina Resources Inc. ("Tintina" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: TAU)(OTCQX: TINTF) is pleased to announce that it has received final approval today from the Montana Department of Environmental Quality ("MT DEQ") for construction of a 5,000 foot long underground exploration decline which will access the high-grade Johnny Lee copper deposit located on the Company's 100% owned Black Butte Copper Project north of White Sulphur Springs, Montana, USA.

Tintina can now continue its pre-development effort by constructing an exploration decline to access the Johnny Lee copper deposit, which contains measured and indicated resources of 910 Million lbs of copper with an average grade of 3.57% Cu. The proposed decline will enable the Company to complete further evaluation and test work while conducting a feasibility study on the Johnny Lee deposit.

"We are committed to doing this project right from beginning to end. The review process was thorough and comprehensive in nature. The Montana Department of Environmental Quality looked at all aspects and potential impacts of the decline and addressed each appropriately," shared Jerry Zieg, Vice President of Exploration for Tintina. "Our work in obtaining this permit shows that we can successfully access this valuable natural resource while simultaneously protecting the environment."

"Our Project is a High Quality Copper Resource Located in North America," Stated Bob Jacko, Tintina's Vice President of Operations. "The Decline Will Provide Vital Information Needed in Determining the Best Approach to Mining Our Copper Resource and Will Help the Local Economy During Construction. This All Leads to Our Ultimate Goal of a Fully Operating Mine With 200 Full Time Employees."

Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse, Executive Chairman of Tintina, is optimistic about the next phase of work. "By obtaining approval for the decline, we can now advance to the next stage of development by planning for the exploration decline and initiating a feasibility study on the Johnny Lee upper and lower deposits. We have been in discussions with existing shareholders and new potential investors to position the Company appropriately to accomplish these two important objectives."

The Johnny Lee copper deposit contains measured resources of 2.66 Million lbs of copper with an average grade of 2.99% Cu and indicated resources of 8.91 Million lbs of copper with an average grade of 3.74% Cu. Readers are encouraged to review the Updated Technical Report and Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Black Butte Copper Project, Montana dated July 12, 2013, which is available on SEDAR, for additional information regarding these and the other estimated resources on the Black Butte Project.

Tintina also announces that the exercise price of the stock options previously announced on December 23, 2013 has been increased to $0.17 per share.
