Chilean Metals Inc. Announces Private Placement

Toronto, ON / Chilean Metals Inc. ("Chilean Metals" or the "Company") (TSX.V:CMX), is pleased to announce it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement on a best efforts basis of up to 12,000,000 units, each unit consisting of one common share and one half of a common share purchase warrant ("Unit") at a price of $0.10 per Unit for total gross proceeds of up to $1,200,000 (the "Offering") subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. Each whole common share purchase warrant ("Warrant") shall entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of 12 months following the date of closing of the Offering.

"We had indicated that after we closed the sale of Copaquire that we would do this financing to provide working capital for our 2014 plans. We expect many of the debenture holders who have been repaid with a portion of the proceeds of the Copaquire sale to participate along with current and some new shareholders and we would expect to close this offering in April 2014 subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Our immediate next step is to continue to explore our 100% owned Tierra De Oro ("TDO") property. Historically we have spent over $5 million on exploring numerous gold veins on the property, but not on exploration for more economically-significant IOCG (iron oxide-copper-gold) deposits. Our VP of Exploration Chris Hodgson, has reviewed previous exploration data and identified three large, untested and near-surface IOCG targets on TDO. Chris is now onsite in Chile reviewing technical details and meeting with interested parties. Discussions are ongoing with potential joint venture partners on a farm-out deal that we expect will lead to additional drilling on the project later this year" commented CEO Terry Lynch

Chilean Metals Inc. owns six 100%-owned properties comprising over 50,000 acres strategically located in the prolific IOCG ("Iron oxide-copper-gold") belt of Chile. Three of these projects are under review by third parties for possible purchase or joint venture.
