Tintina Announces Company Name Change

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, Mont., Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tintina Resources Inc. (“Tintina” or the “Company”) announces that effective February 2, 2018 the Company will change its company name from Tintina Resources Inc. to Sandfire Resources America Inc.

In a seamless transition for shareholders, the Company will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “SFR.V”. FINRA will announce a decision on the proposed U.S. OTC Market symbol change before market open on February 2, 2018.

CEO John Shanahan stated, “We believe it is important, as we undertake these final permitting steps for the Black Butte Copper Project, and look towards construction and operation, that we are transparent and clear with all shareholders and stakeholders regarding the ongoing financial and technical support of our majority shareholder, Sandfire Resources NL. Sandfire Resources NL owns and operates the state-of-the-art DeGrussa copper mine in Australia and has been recognized internationally as an industry leader and environmental steward. The best way we can reflect this important direction is through a corporate name change.”

Senior VP of Exploration Jerry Zieg added, “This is a very positive sign of progress for our project. The fact that a quality company such as Sandfire Resources NL has chosen to believe and invest in the Black Butte Project is a great signal of strength. We look forward to building a world-class operation and to a bright future for all our shareholders, employees, and communities of central Montana.”

The corporate name change is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
