VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - Solid Resources Ltd.
("Solid" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SRW) is pleased to
announce that Glencore Xstrata plc ("Glencore") has exercised its
option to take 20% equity in the Cehegin Iron Ore Project (the

Solid and Glencore will now proceed to finalise and sign the Joint Venture

Since October, Solid and Glencore have undertaken and finalized an internal
joint due diligence report on the formerly producing Cehegin Project, including
review of historical drilling and production data.

recommendations of this report. The JVA (Solid 80%, Glencore 20%) will now
commence progression of exploration and phased development studies with the
ultimate objective of developing a new iron ore mine. 
Greg Pendura, CEO of Solid Resources commented: "Conclusion of the JV with
Glencore will trigger the start of a Work Program. Solid will quickly submit
the documentation to obtain the necessary permits to begin drilling. The
objective of the initial work program is to increase our knowledge of the
resource potential within the concessions. The previous five months have seen
the management and technical teams of both Solid and Glencore work together to
produce the due diligence report. I would like to take this opportunity to
thank Glencore for their support and professionalism in advancing this exciting
European project." 
Significant terms of the JVA are:  
--  Glencore holds a 20% interest, with Solid an 80% interest. 
--  Life of mine exclusivity and commitment to purchase all production. 
--  Both parties agree to jointly pursue third party financing when 
About the Cehegin Iron Ore Concessions 
The Cehegin Iron Ore concessions were formerly owned and operated by the
Spanish Ironworks company, Altos Hornos de Vizcaya ("AHV"), the
largest industrial company in Spain for much of the twentieth century. In 1975,
all 62 concessions were grouped together into one single subsidiary of AHV
called Agrupacion Minera, SA. who exploited one of the open pit mines - Mina
Maria, for its own needs until 1989. 
The 62 concessions, when fully permitted will total 3,270 hectares.
Solid's 100% wholly owned subsidiary, Solid Mines Espana also made
application for an extension of the property bordering the investigation permit
for 3,630 Hectares. Together these form a unified total of 6,900 Hectares. 
Highlights of the Concessions are: 
--  Availability of a large amount of historical drill and production data 
--  Historically high quality iron ore concentrate with low impurities 
--  115 km from the site to the Port of Cartagena on a toll-fee highway 
--  Rail spur to the Port of Cartagena 14 km from site, toll-free highway 7 
km from site 
--  Support of regional and municipal governments and interest groups
