UPDATE OF THE COMPANY’S FIRST PHASE FUNDING

Richmond, BC, Canada – December 15, 2016

Mineral Hill Industries Ltd. (“Mineral Hill” or “Company”) wishes to announce that it has received to date fully executed subscriptions for 2.9 million units of the December 5, 2016 announced private placement of up to 3,000,000 “Securities Units” at $0.30 per unit and is expecting to close the announced Private Placement very shortly.

The Private Placement, is the first phase of financing to be raised in connection with the Company’s “substantial acquisition” of 45% of the outstanding shares of UK based CPS Energy Resources Plc (“CPS”), which entered into and exercised an option agreement with a leading Nigerian Oil and Gas company to jointly develop the contract area covered by the OPL 236 project in Nigeria (see News release of April 21, 2016). This first phase of funding represents the Company’s initial working capital and represents also a requirement of the executed Share Purchase Agreement as well as a precondition of the secured second phase funding issued as a bond as referred to in the Company’s recent News Release dated December 5, 2016.
