VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — 17 June 2015 – Tango Mining Limited (“Tango” or the “Company”) (TSXV:TGV) announces that it has raised USD $500,000 by the issuance to ATC Enterprises DMCC (“ATC”) of an unsecured one year convertible note (the “Unsecured Note”) in consideration of an offtake of diamond production (the “Offtake Right”) from the Oena Project (“Oena”) (see news release dated 19 May 2015).

ATC is a private, Dubai based, trading company registered in the Dubai Multi Commodity Centre. The ATC team has over 25 years’ experience of trading diamonds and has been active for 10 years. Currently, 1 in 4 rough diamonds from Africa are traded through Dubai and it has become one of the largest and most favored destinations for purchasing rough diamonds. All diamonds traded by ATC are fully certified under the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.

Unsecured Note

Tango has issued a USD $500,000 Unsecured Note to ATC in the principal amount of USD $500,000, bearing interest at a rate of 10% per annum. ATC has the option at maturity, at its sole discretion, to be repaid all or a portion of the principal amount of the Unsecured Note by the issuance of common shares of Tango having a value of CAD $0.05 per share. In the event that ATC elects to have the accrued and unpaid interest payable by the issuance of common shares of Tango, the Company shall make application to the TSX Venture Exchange for approval to have the shares issued at the market price at the time that the accrued interest becomes due and payable.

A cash finder’s fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised for the Unsecured Note is payable. The Unsecured Note and the underlying common shares issuable upon conversion are subject to a four‐month hold period expiring on October 18, 2015. The proceeds from the Unsecured Note will be used for ongoing development of the Company’s current projects, acquisition of new projects and for general working capital purposes.

Offtake Right

The Offtake Right is effective as of the date of issuance of the Unsecured Note and shall expire on the later of:

(i) the date that is 12 months after the date that ATC takes delivery of the first diamond; and (ii) the date that ATC has received a minimum of 2,000 carats.
