NEWS RELEASE

Foran to Commence Metallurgy at the Bigstone Copper-Zinc Deposit

Vancouver, BC (June 18, 2015) - Foran Mining Corporation (TSX.V: FOM) ("Foran" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that based on positive results from the 2015 winter drill campaign, the Company plans to commence metallurgical studies on the Bigstone deposit ("Bigstone"), located in east-central Saskatchewan, 25 km southwest of Foran's McIlvenna Bay deposit.
Past work by previous operators has outlined an historic copper-zinc mineral resource for Bigstone (Table
1)1. The historic mineral resource outlines a vertically oriented, flattened, cylindrical shaped volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") deposit, in part drill tested between 100 and 700m below surface. The 2015 winter campaign tested the central part of the deposit at vertical depths of 200 to 350m with six drill holes, all of which intersected broad intervals of copper+/- zinc mineralization (see the Foran news release dated May 20, 2015); highlights include:
• 2.0% Cu over 105.0m, including 4.1% Cu over 20.4m in BS-15-239, and
• 18.4% Zn over 11.8m, including 270% Zn over 7.6m in BS-15-2402
Patrick Soares, President and CEO of Foran commented "The exceptional results from our winter 2015 program clearly demonstrate that the Bigstone deposit merits further work. As such, we plan to advance this deposit using a step by step approach, commencing with metallurgical testwork. Pending positive results, the next step would be to conduct an independent mineral resource estimate."
Samples of the main styles of mineralization at Bigstone are being submitted for scoping level metallurgical testwork. Representative composite samples will be selected from the 2015 drill core for both the copper-rich Main Zone and the zinc-rich Massive Sulphide horizon. Testwork will include an initial assessment of the metal recovery and grinding characteristics of the mineralized zones. The results are expected to be received by fall 2015.
An independent consultant has recently completed the compilation and validation of historic drill data from Bigstone. With this database in place, Foran plans to conduct a summer program which will include logging and sampling of historic drill core, combined with further geological interpretation. This data can form the basis for an independent mineral resource estimate at Bigstone.

1 The Bigstone historic mineral resource was estimated in 1990; Foran is not treating the historic estimate as current; a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 has not completed sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as current; additional work, including re-surveying, re-logging and drill core QA/QC would be required to verify and upgrade the historic estimate to current.

2 Cu = copper, Zn = zinc, m = metres; true thickness estimated at approximately 60% of downhole distance.
