Cordoba Minerals Corp. ("Cordoba" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CDB)(OTCQX:CDBMF) is pleased to announce that its shareholders have approved all items of business brought before them at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders held today, including the previously announced acquisition (the "Transaction") from High Power Exploration Inc.

As the Transaction is considered a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions and Policy 5.9 of the TSXV Corporate Finance Manual, the Company was required to obtain prior approval of the Transaction by a majority of the minority shareholders of the Company at a special meeting of shareholders.

The closing of the Transaction is scheduled to occur on July 31, 2017 and is subject to satisfaction or waiver of those further conditions to closing specified in the Share Purchase Agreement.
Concurrently with the closing of the Transaction, the Company expects to convert the subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") issued in connection with its previously announced C$10 million bought deal private placement offering of Subscription Receipts into common shares and common share purchase warrants of Cordoba.
The nominees listed in the management information circular were elected as directors, as shown in the following table of results.
Details of votes on all matters of business considered at the Meeting will be available in the Company's report of voting results filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
