VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2022 / Galore Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GRI) (OTC PINK:GALOF) is excited to announce that the Company has legally and safely regained possession and control of the Duraznillo Ranch mining operation.
As previously announced in January, 2018, the Company had entered into a mining exploitation agreement with Urbanizaciones y Acabados, S.A. de C.V., "URBYASA", to implement a gold mining operation on Galore's 100% owned Duraznillo Ranch, which included the mining concessions named Los Gemelos I and Duende 7 (the "Mining Properties") (the "Agreement"). Mining activities commenced in October, 2018 with the installation of a gold processing plant having an initial capacity of 90 tons per week.

Due to a breach of the Agreement, in May, 2019 Galore formally requested that URBYASA vacate the property and terminate the Agreement. URBYASA refused to abide by the Company's request and remained using the Duraznillo Ranch and operating the Mining Properties.
The Company filed a demand with the Mexican Courts against URBYASA terminating the Agreement and demanding the return of the Duraznillo Ranch and the Mining Properties.
On December 8, 2021, the Mexican Courts officially granted Minerales Galore the judicial resolution ordering URBYASA to return the possession of the Duraznillo Ranch and Mining Properties. On March 8, 2022, in conjunction with Minerales Galore's attorneys and a representative team, using the judicial resolution and joined by the Zacatecas State´s Public Force, the Duraznillo Ranch and the Mining Properties were legally repossessed. The repossession was peaceful and smooth. Mike McMillan, President and CEO of Galore, was on location and a part of the team overseeing the repossession of the Duraznillo Ranch and Mining Properties.
Management is relieved to have this stressful process come to a close with such a positive and peaceful conclusion. The Company's geological team and representatives will immediately begin assessing the mining operation to give Management strategy ideas for plans on moving forward.
Galore would like to thank all of its stockholders for their patience and understanding during this long process. We recognize that little news was provided during this sensitive situation, but this was done to protect our personnel in Mexico, to maintain a separation with URBYASA and act in the best interest of Galore stockholders. We encourage you to watch for upcoming News Releases as Galore has been in discussions with some quality mining company candidates regarding the potential to continue mining operations at the Duraznillo Ranch and Mining Properties.
On Behalf of the Board, I am respectfully yours,
President and Chief Executive Office
