Cypress Gunman Zinc-Silver Project Exploration Begins in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/14 -- Cypress Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CYP)(PINKSHEETS:CYDVF)(FRANKFURT:C1Z) ("Cypress" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the spring 2014 exploration program on its wholly owned Gunman zinc oxide project, Nevada, has now been initiated. The 1140 acre Gunman zinc-silver-gold project is located directly west of Barrick's Bald Mountain gold mine complex on the southern Carlin mineral trend in White Pine County, Nevada.

With the approval of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada, Cypress has completed construction of access roads onto the property to allow for unrestricted mobility to the project. The Company is also establishing drill pads at specifically determined sites to allow for the drill contractor to move a Reverse Circulation (RC) drill rig onto the drill pads with relative ease and with a minimum of land disturbance therein facilitating a smooth start to the planned RC drill program announced by Cypress in a news release dated February 3, 1014.

Cypress Development Corp has contracted to New Frontier Drilling of Fallon, Nevada, to complete approximately 3000 feet of RC drilling in a Phase 1 program on the Gunman project. New Frontier will supply a track-mounted Foremost reverse circulation rig capable of drilling vertical holes to 600 foot depths. Cypress anticipates the mobilization of the drill rig and equipment to the Gunman project site shortly, with RC drilling to commence around May 1, 2014. All permits and environmental protocols have been satisfied and Cypress Development anticipates a well organized initial exploration program for the spring of 2014.

A surface sampling program has also been initiated on the newly staked adjacent ground which forms the northern extension of the Gunman property. The Company's senior geologist, Mr. Robert Marvin, has mobilized to the Gunman project and is establishing an exploration grid to facilitate the systematic sampling of rock exposure on the north of the property.

Cypress will continue in its exploration efforts to delineate the RH North target area with the potential establishment of a mineralized zone similar to the existing high grade RH zinc-silver oxide discovery zone located approximately 1500 feet to the south in the middle of the property.

Mineralization at the Gunman project appears to be controlled by a series of well developed NNE trending fracture zones. This setting is seen in other locations along the Carlin and the Battle Mountain gold trends where the NS to NNE alignments of mineralized zones are located in cross cutting structural zones within or adjacent to the main NNW striking trends. The mineralization of the zinc-silver zones on the Gunman is located close to surface. The very high grade of zinc-silver mineralization seen in the RH zone is a compelling reason to continue exploration on the Gunman project.

Past surface sampling and drilling by Cypress on the Gunman property has resulted in the discovery of a series of zones of zinc-silver mineralization over a strike length of 2500 feet. The northern most mineralization known (hole GD-15) on the property was discovered at the end of the most recent drill program in 2007 and this mineralization remains essentially unexplored.

On March 18th, Cypress announced the completion of a National Instrument (NI) 43-101 Compliant Technical Report on the Gunman zinc-silver-gold project. For additional information please refer to the full report filed on SEDAR and on Cypress' web site dated March 17, 2014 and titled: GUNMAN ZINC-SILVER PROJECT NATIONAL INSTRUMENT 43-101 COMPLIANT TECHNICAL REPORT.
