Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 16, 2019) - San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSXV) ("San Marco" or the "Company") is pleased to advise as follows:

Share Consolidation

At a special general meeting of shareholders held today, its shareholders voted in favour of a special resolution to consolidate the Company's shares on a three (old) into one (new) basis.

San Marco currently has 67,916,082 common shares issued and outstanding and, once the consolidation is completed, it will have 22,638,694 common shares issued and outstanding. The exercise price of outstanding incentive stock options to purchase 5,600,000 (1,866,667 post-consolidation) common shares will be increased accordingly to reflect the share consolidation. No fractional shares will be issued in the share consolidation. Instead, all resulting fractional shares of less than one-half will be rounded down to the nearest whole number, and of one-half or greater will be rounded up to the nearest whole number.

The effective date of the share consolidation is being set, in conjunction with the TSX Venture Exchange, to occur as soon as possible.

The consolidation is expected to become effective shortly after receipt of TSX Venture Exchange approval for the consolidation.
