Almaden Updates Status of Spin-Out of Mineral Exploration Assets and Royalties

Almaden Minerals Ltd. announces that it will be deferring shareholder approval of the spin-out of its early stage exploration projects, royalty interests and certain other non-core assets, which was originally announced in the Company’s October 21, 2014 news release, to the Company’s 2015 annual general meeting. The AGM is expected to be held on or about June 2015. Shareholder approval is being deferred to avoid the expense of an additional shareholders’ meeting and to allow more time for an internal restructuring of the projects, royalty interests and assets to be spun out. The Company considers the deferral to be a prudent cost saving opportunity given the market conditions while also providing shareholders more time to better understand the corporate reorganisation and its merits before voting. The Company remains committed to the spin-out and does not believe that the deferral of the shareholder vote will place the transaction at risk, although current market conditions are very challenging and have worsened since the original spin-out announcement. The Company will continue to monitor the market while it completes the internal restructuring and will provide updates accordingly.
