Toronto, Canada, Januar 17, 2017 - Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q) ("Eloro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's Peruvian subsidiary, Compañia Minera Eloro Peru SAC ("Minera Eloro Peru"), has registered four additional mining claims totalling 3,400 hectares ("ha") (34 sq. km.) of prospective exploration lands on the southern boundary of its wholly-owned La Victoria Gold/Silver Project. This brings the total lands held to 8,042 ha (80.4 sq. km.) in 8 concessions and 8 claims.

As part of a continuing review of the surface geology of the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project and environs, a large tract of land bordering the Rufina 2 Concession to the south was seen to host geology similar to what is seen on the Ccori Orcco Concession, and mining rights were available to acquire by staking. This property acquisition makes Minera Eloro Peru one of the largest holders of mining rights in the northern Ancash Department section of the North-Central Peru Mineralized Belt.

In addition, extensive new mineral claims have been registered by major corporations since Januar 1, 2017, demonstrating a new influx of some of the world's largest and best known mining companies entering into the northern Ancash Department. These holdings are located to the south, east, and north of the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project (Figure 1) that continues the trend started in Juli of 2016 by First Quantum Minerals Ltd, which registered 14,100 ha (141 sq. km) in 15 mining claims southeast of the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project.

Newmont Peru SRL, a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation, has registered 8,767 ha (87.7 sq. km.) in thirteen mining claims contiguous with the new southern boundary of the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project. In addition, Newmont has registered 3,300 ha (33 sq. km.) in five mining claims due West of La Victoria, as well as a very large, prospective land position just across the La Libertad/Ancash boundary some 7 km west with 8,500 ha (85 sq. km.) in 11 contiguous mining claims between the Patibal Gold Mine and the Santa Rosa Gold/Copper Mine.

Minera Barrick Misquichilca SA, the Peruvian subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation has registered a 600 ha (6 sq. km.) mining claim on the eastern boundary of Minera Eloro Peru's Santa Ana 2 Concession, while proximal to this is a new landholding by Anglo American Peru SA, a subsidiary of Anglo American plc, with three mining claims totalling 2,700 ha (27 sq. km.).

Fresnillo Peru SAC, subsidiary of Mexican miner Fresnillo plc, has registered one 400 ha (4 sq. km.) claim on the northern boundary of Minera Eloro Peru's San Markito Concession, and has acquired an additional 300 ha (3 sq. km.) mining claim to the east of the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project.

As a result of this recent activity, the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project is now bordered on the north by Fresnillo; on the south by Newmont; on the southeast by First Quantum; and on the east by Barrick Gold, with Anglo American in close proximity.

"We are delighted to have five world-class mining companies on our doorstep in Peru", said Eloro's CEO Tom Larsen. "These recent acquisitions reinforce our conviction that we are in the right place at the right time with the right gold/silver project. Our new expanded land holding gives us even more discovery leverage in the event of successful exploration."
