About Norvista

Norvista is a resource based merchant bank that began operations and was listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in June of 2014. The Company’s strategy is to capitalize on the significant asset value contraction that has occurred over the last several years in the resource industry, with particular emphasis on base metal projects. Norvista focuses its efforts on the pursuit of highly prospective exploration stage projects while balancing exploration risk through investment in small to mid-scale, pre-production, projects requiring partial or full completion of feasibility studies. The Company takes a proactive role with its investee companies and in the majority of cases assumes management or advisory roles and/or seats on the board of directors of these investee companies. Management is of the view that current market conditions allow the Company to significantly mitigate political and country risk by pursuing investments in some of the world’s top ranked mining jurisdictions. Since inception Norvista has completed four strategic investments. The Company owns a 10.3% undiluted ownership interest in Nevada Zinc Corporation (TSX-V: NZN) the owner of the highly prospective Lone Mountain zinc exploration project in Eureka, Nevada. Management of Norvista hold senior officer positions as well as board seats at Nevada Zinc. Nevada Zinc recently purchased the Mountain View mine, a past producing zinc mine in the centre of the Lone Mountain property. Nevada Zinc has completed three drill programs on the Lone Mountain property to-date. The assay results from all three drill programs have been very positive. The Company also owns a 19.9%, fully diluted ownership interest in Minera Alamos Inc. (TSX-V: MAI) the owner of an open pit, high-grade copper/molybdenum project in Sonora, Mexico. Minera Alamos is targeting a 2016 mine construction start date for its Los Verdes project. The Company is actively involved in Minera Alamos through its board representation.

Norvista owns an 80% undiluted ownership interest in Akuna Minerals Inc., a private company with a small scale, pre-production, high-grade copper project in northern Manitoba. Norvista’s investment in Akuna funded the acquisition of the property and will assist in the funding of the cost of the feasibility study on the project that is scheduled to commence construction in 2016 and begin production in 2017. The Company also has a smaller investment in Petrowolf, LLC, a private oil and gas exploration company that has assembled a significant land holding in the Permian Basin in Texas funded from the proceeds of the initial financing subscribed to by Norvista.

Petrowolf recently closed a U.S.$7MM second round financing in order to fund its initial drill program in Q1 of 2016 and acquire additional exploration property. For further information contact:
