Vancouver, Canada - (September 26, 2014) Rio Cristal Resources Corporation (TSXV:RCZ) ("Rio Cristal" or the "Company") announced today that the previously announced consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its common shares (the "Common Shares") on the basis of (1) post-Consolidation Common Share for every ten (10) pre-Consolidation Common Shares will be effective as of September 29, 2014 and trading of the Common Shares will commence on a consolidated basis on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") at the opening of trading on such date.

The Consolidation has been approved by the TSXV, and a related bulletin was issued by the TSXV on September 26, 2014.

The Company's outstanding options and warrants will also be adjusted on the same basis (10:1) as the Common Shares, with proportionate adjustments being made to exercise prices.

A letter of transmittal was mailed to shareholders on September 23, 2014 advising that 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.
