El Capitan Realizes First-Ever Revenue from Sale of Precious Metals


In a historic milestone, El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCQB:ECPN)
announced today that its first-ever payment on the sale of precious
metals recovered from its El Capitan mine site has been issued to the
Company. The payment is for the initial shipment of precious metals
pursuant to a recently-announced contract with a U.S.-based refinery.

According to John F Stapleton, Chairman and CEO, this initial
transaction established the procedures and protocol for future shipments
and payments that will continue throughout the year. Revenue from the
initial shipment will be realized in the quarter ending June 30, 2017.

The metal bar shipped to the refinery was found to contain the following
elements by weight:

Gold   65%
Platinum 15%
Silver 20%

The Company also announced that, in addition to this first payment, it
has sent a second shipment of larger quantity in the form of precious
metals bars to the same refinery for processing. The Company will
continue to process precious metals concentrates from its ore and
expects each successive shipment to be larger in size until maximum
capacity for the pilot plant is reached.

Stapleton reported that management is very enthusiastic about the
Company becoming a revenue-generating mining operation, having
transitioned from an exploration company less than one year ago.

A description of the major steps in this process will be the focus of
the July 26, 2017 Shareholders' Informational Meeting scheduled to begin
at 10:00 a.m. at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.
