Rusoro Provides Update on Status of International Arbitration



Trading symbol (TSX-V): RML

VANCOUVER, June 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Rusoro Mining Ltd. (the "Company" or "Rusoro") (TSXV: RML) announced today that the parties have completed their oral and written submissions in Rusoro's arbitration against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela before the World Bank's International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes ("ICSID"), in accordance with the provisions of the Canada-Venezuela Bilateral Investment Treaty ("BIT").

Rusoro's claims allege violations by Venezuela of several guarantees of the Canada-Venezuela BIT, including by expropriating its investments in Venezuela without adequate compensation, by failing to accord to its investments fair and equitable treatment and full protection and security, and by failing to guarantee Rusoro the unrestricted transfer of its investments and returns in Venezuela.

Rusoro seeks compensation for all of its losses caused by Venezuela's breaches of the BIT based on a valuation performed by an independent expert. Rusoro now awaits the issuance of a final award by the arbitral tribunal.

Andre Agapov, President & CEO, stated "We are pleased to have reached this important milestone in our dispute with Venezuela. We are confident that the final award will order payment of fair-value compensation for the taking of our significant investment in Venezuela".

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD

"Andre Agapov"

Andre Agapov, President & CEO
