Discovery Harbour Granted Option to Acquire Additional 49% Interest in Wabassi Joint Venture, Northwest Ontario

VANCOUVER , June 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Discovery Harbour Resources Corp. (DHR.V) ("Discovery" or the "Company") announces that Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield") (NRN.V), has sold its 49% interest in the Wabassi Joint Venture (the "Wabassi JV") and its 59% interest in the joint venture for the neighboring Max property (the "Max JV") to Great Lakes Resources LLC ("Great Lakes"), a private US based company, and has granted Great Lakes a first right of refusal to acquire its 100% interest in the Storm Property (the "Storm Rights"). As a result of this acquisition by Great Lakes, the interests in the Wabassi JV are held by the Company (51%) and Great Lakes (49%) and the interests in the Max JV are held by Great Lakes (59%) and by Rainy Mountain Royalty Corp. (RMO.V) (41%).

On completion of this purchase by Great Lakes, the Company was granted an option (the "Option") by Great Lakes to acquire a 49% interest in the Wabassi JV, a 59% interest in the Max JV and the Storm Rights. The Option may be exercised by the Company paying $2,605,684 plus 8% accumulated interest thereon, compounded monthly, by June 18, 2015 . If the Option is exercised by the Company, the Company will acquire a 49% interest in the Wabassi JV which would make the Company the 100% owner of the Wabassi Property, a 59% interest in the Max JV and the Storm Rights, all subject to the NRN Wabassi Royalty (as defined below) and the NRN Max Royalty (as defined below).

As part of purchase transaction between Great Lakes and Northern Shield, Great Lakes granted Northern Shield a 0.5% net smelter returns royalty from the Wabassi property (the "NRN Wabassi Royalty") and a 0.6% net smelter returns royalty from the Max property (the "NRN Max Royalty"). Half of each of the NRN Wabassi Royalty and NRN Max Royalty may be purchased by the royalty payor paying $750,000 to Northern Shield at any time on or before June 18, 2019 , or by paying $1,500,000 thereafter in respect of each royalty.

In addition, the Company, Great Lakes and Northern Shield have agreed with respect to each of the Wabassi JV and the Max JV, that if Great Lakes' participating interest in each of these joint ventures is diluted below 10% before the Option is exercised by the Company, then: (i) the NRN Wabassi Royalty and NRN Max Royalty will be terminated, and (ii) the 2.0% net smelter returns royalty that would otherwise be payable to Great Lakes under the terms of the joint venture agreements for such properties, shall be replaced with: (a) a 1.5% net smelter returns royalty payable to Great Lakes, which the Company shall have the pre-emptive right to reduce from 1.5% to 0.75% by paying Great Lakes $700,000 , and (b) a 0.5% net smelter returns royalty payable to Northern Shield, which the Company shall have the pre-emptive right to reduce from 0.5% to 0.25% by paying Northern Shield $300,000 . Also, in connection with these transactions, the Company has granted Northern Shield a limited non-exclusive license to use and access the Wabassi camp in consideration for certain rental fees and consumable fees. It is expected that the Company will continue as operator of the Wabassi JV.

"Completion of this transaction marks the first step toward the Company's strategic goal of consolidating the Wabassi District under a single entity. It is important to remember that Wabassi is not a single project, but a previously undiscovered district. We will now turn our attention to integrating our efforts with those of the Province of Ontario , First Nations and private companies to develop access and infrastructure to support development of the Ring of Fire mineral province.  The Wabassi Joint Venture holds over 12 kilometers of right of way along southern portion of one of the proposed access routes. Improved access is key to lowering our exploration costs and improving the overall development profile of the Wabassi District.," stated Bruno Hegner , President and CEO of the Company.

Great Lakes is a private US company controlled by Richard B. Gilliam , a director and significant shareholder of the Company. The Company's exercise of the Option remains subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and, if required, approval of the shareholders of the Company.
