Para Resources Announces Change in Financial Year-End

August 10, 2016 – Vancouver, British Columbia.  Para Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Para”) (TSXV – “PBR”) (WKN – “A14YF1”) (OTC – “PRSRF”) announces that it will change its financial year-end from August 31 to September 30 as a step to streamline reporting and to bring more consistency and fiscal period alignment with Para’s various subsidiaries.

A Notice of Change in Year-end has been filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and is available for review under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

ABOUT PARA RESOURCES:

Para Resources is an exploration stage gold mining and toll milling company.  Para owns approximately 70% of the El Limon project, in Colombia, which in addition to its current underground operation has toll milling opportunities, and exploration and development upside. In addition, the Company is gearing up to commence trial mining operations at its Tucuma Project and in particular on the Angelim prospect in Para State, Brazil. Para Resources will continue to take advantage of current market conditions to acquire and develop additional highly economic, near-term production assets that have strong exploration and development upside.

Management’s production decisions for the El Limon Gold Project are not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. As a result, the project has a much higher risk of economic or technical failure and may adversely impact the Company’s projected profits, if any. The risks associated with this decision are set forth in the Company’s latest annual management’s discussion and analysis available on the Company’s website and the under Para’s SEDAR profile on www.sedar.com.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

“C. Geoffrey Hampson”
C. Geoffrey Hampson, Chief Executive Officer and Director
