Rio Cristal Announces Share Consolidation

August 29th, 2014

Vancouver, Canada - (August 29, 2014) Rio Cristal Resources Corporation (TSXV:RCZ) ("Rio Cristal" or the "Company") announced today that it intends to complete a consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of (1) post-Consolidation Common Share for every six (6) pre-Consolidation Common Shares.

The Company's articles of incorporation authorize the board of directors to approve certain changes to the Company's capital structure, including the Consolidation. As such, shareholder approval is not required.

The Consolidation is subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") approval. The Company anticipates that its post-Consolidation Common Shares will begin trading on the TSXV in early September 2014.

Following the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 2,876,527 Common Shares outstanding. The Company's outstanding options will be adjusted on the same basis (6:1), with proportionate adjustments being made to exercise prices.
No fractional Common Shares will be issued and no cash will be paid in lieu of fractional post-Consolidation Common Shares. The number of post-Consolidation Common Shares to be received by a shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole Common Share.

A letter of transmittal will be mailed to shareholders advising that: (i) the Consolidation has taken effect; and (ii) shareholders should surrender their existing share certificates (representing pre-Consolidation Common Shares) for replacement share certificates (representing post-Consolidation Common Shares). Until surrendered, each existing share certificate will be deemed, for all purposes, to represent the number of Common Shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.
