Vancouver, December 14, 2017 - Canasil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CLZ, DB Frankfurt: 3CC, “Canasil” or the “Company”) announces that the Company’s shareholders have approved the Plan of Arrangement to segregate its British Columbia properties into a separate company, Canmine Minerals Inc. (“Canmine”), at the Special Meeting of Shareholders held on December 12, 2017. The details of votes cast at the Special Meeting are summarized in the table below:

|CANMINE STOCK OPTION PLAN||For
The Company will now apply for the Final Court Order to approve the arrangement, following which the Directors of Canasil and Canmine will proceed with the arrangements for meeting the initial listing requirements for the listing of Canmine on the TSX Venture Exchange (“the “Exchange”). Assuming that the Court Order is granted, the Directors of Canasil and Canmine will determine the timing for the remaining steps for the completion of the Arrangement.
The remaining steps, in sequence and at the times determined by the Canasil Directors and the Canmine Directors, required for the completion of the Arrangement are: determination of the Share Distribution Record Date, the Effective Date and the mailing of the certificates for the Distributed Canmine Shares. The determination of the timing of the steps will be made on the basis of all applicable factors, including general market conditions for junior resource companies and the availability of financing to enable Canmine to satisfy the Initial Listing Requirements of the Exchange. Notice of the Final Court Approval, Share Distribution Record Date and Effective Date will be given to the Company Shareholders through press releases. The Boards of Directors of the Company and Canmine will determine the exact Effective Date depending on when all the conditions for the completion of the Arrangement are satisfied. The arrangement will only be finalized and take effect after the necessary approvals have been obtained from the Exchange providing for the listing of Canmine shares.
Shareholders of Canasil will receive shares of Canmine in proportion to their shareholdings of Canasil, and Canasil will continue to hold its Mexican assets. The transaction will be carried out as a Plan of Arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). The consideration for the transfer of the BC Properties will be based on the issuance of common shares of Canmine, the majority of which will be distributed to Canasil shareholders based on one share of Canmine for each two shares of Canasil held. Warrant holders and Option holders of Canasil will receive warrants or options of Canmine which are proportionate to, and commensurate with the terms of, their existing Canasil warrants or options.
Complete details of the proposed transaction have been set out in the Information Circular mailed to shareholders on November 17, 2017, which is also available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on the Company’s website (www.canasil.com).
