    TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 1, 2015) - Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MON) ("Montero") has completed an initial review of geological data relating to extensive off-shore sedimentary phosphate deposits within the Greenflash Project area in South Africa. The Greenflash Project is the second phosphate asset being advanced with funding partner Ovation Capital ("Ovation") in South Africa. Ovation has committed to expenditures of roughly CDN $2.7 million to acquire a 10% interest in Montero's Duyker Eiland project. At the Greenflash Project, Ovation has agreed to co-fund due diligence with Montero, where, upon receiving a positive review, may elect to provide Montero 100% of the funding to outline a resource for equity participation in the project (see press release September 10, 2015). The Greenflash Project could potentially provide additional feedstock to a Fertilizer Plant envisaged to be developed in Saldanha Bay by Montero and Ovation.
