Silver Stream Enters Into Standstill Agreement to Perform Due Diligence on Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Idaho

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Silver Stream Mining Corp. (the "Company" or "Silver Stream") (OTCQB: AGSM) announced today it has entered into a standstill agreement ("Agreement") with Placer Mining Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("Placer"), which owns the Bunker Hill Mine, near Kellogg, Idaho ("Bunker" or the "Property"), in which Silver Stream will have the exclusive right to evaluate and perform due diligence on the Property until August 15, 2014 ("Review Period"). Upon completion of the Review Period, the parties expect to negotiate and enter into option and exclusivity agreements ("Option Agreements") whereby Silver Stream can acquire the interests of Placer shareholders upon satisfaction of certain terms and conditions to be negotiated.

In consideration for the Review Period, Silver Stream will pay Placer the sum of $60,000 USD (Sixty Thousand Dollars) per month on a payment schedule of $15,000 USD (Fifteen Thousand Dollars) per week commencing Friday, May 16, 2014, with payments concluding Friday, August 1, 2014. However, the Review Period will extend until Friday, August 15, 2014. Silver Stream will have a seven (7) day grace period in the event a payment to Placer is delayed for any reason. If a payment is delayed beyond the seven (7) day grace period, the Agreement will automatically terminate and neither Placer nor Silver Stream will have any obligation to one another from that date forward.

In the event Placer terminates this Agreement in order to accept another offer, or for any reason whatsoever, then Placer will pay Silver Stream a breakup fee in the amount of $5,000,000 USD (Five Million Dollars USD) within fifteen (15) days of notifying Silver Stream in writing of such termination.

During the Review Period, Placer agrees it will not, directly or indirectly, solicit, initiate, assist, facilitate, promote or encourage proposals or offers from, entertain or enter into discussions or negotiations with, or provide information relating to the Property, including, but not limited to any and all due diligence materials, to any persons, entity or group in connection with the sale of the Property or any interest therein, or any amalgamation, merger, consolidation, arrangement, or sale of all or substantially all of the assets of Placer.

There is no assurance Silver Stream and Placer will ever execute Option Agreements. If Option Agreements are not executed Silver Stream will lose all of the money paid to Placer and will not receive refunds of any kind.
