Greenock Resources: Share Consolidation

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Greenock Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: GKR) ("Greenock") announces it will be proceeding with a 30 to 1 share consolidation in order to allow future financing and acquisitions to be completed at a share price in excess of $0.05 per share as required by TSXV policy. The share consolidation was approved by shareholders at the Annual General and Special Meeting of December 11, 2013. To complete these steps in a cost effective manner, Greenock is moving to the NEX exchange to reduce administrative expenses charged by the TMX Group. Apart for reduced administrative costs on NEX, Greenock has maintained all its TSXV Tier 2 listing requirements.

Greenock continues to move forward with the company's mineral exploration and development mandate including finalizing a joint venture with Precious Metal Investment Ltd. ("PMI") of NSW Australia, as announced on November 15, 2013, for the Needles gold and silver property in Nevada. As part of this transaction, PMI is to receive 1,000,000 shares of Greenock which on a consolidated basis will now be 33,334 shares.

Greenock announces the technical studies for the Kakanda project in the Democratic Republic of Congo may be difficult to monetize in the near term as Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation PLC of London UK has indicated that it will not be proceeding with any transactions or activity with Kakanda at this time. The Kakanda title history and technical studies owned by the Greenock subsidiary PTM Minerals (Cayman) Ltd. are believed to have significant longer term value for any company that moves forward to develop Kakanda. The original total cost of the Kakanda technical studies dating back to 1997 have been approximately US $15 million.
