Cypress Development Corp: Cypress Acquires Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Option in Nevada, Private Placement Financing Announced

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cypress
Development Corp.
(TSX-V:CYP) (OTCBB:CYDVF) (Frankfurt:C1Z1) ("Cypress" or the "Company") is
pleased to announce, further to its news release on January 25th, the TSX
Venture Exchange has accepted for filing the Company's Option Agreement to
acquire a 100% interest in the 1280 acre Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project
located in Esmeralda County, in the state of Nevada, USA.

Cypress' Clayton Valley Project is located on the south flank of "Angel
Island" and immediately southeast of the Albemarle Silver Peak lithium brine
mine. The acquired claims share their western boundary with placer claims
controlled by Pure Energy Minerals. Pure Energy has identified a lithium
resource at its Northern Resource Area (see Pure Energy Minerals news release
July 28, 2015), that is located to the immediate west of Cypress newly
established boundary.

Cypress' highly prospective "Glory" and "Angel" claims are located within 0.5
miles (>1000m) south of current and past producing lithium brine wells
belonging to the Albemarle Silver Peak Mine. Cypress' Clayton Valley claims
are located in an active area of surface hectorite clay lithium mining and
lithium exploration. Highways and electric power are in place and exploration
resources needed are readily accessible.

The Albemarle Silver Peak Mine is the only operating brine based lithium mine
in North America. The Silver Peak area is one of the oldest mining areas in
Nevada having produced substantial amounts of silver, gold and other
minerals. The Silver Peak Mine began operations in 1967 to mine lithium by
low cost evaporation ponds and has produced lithium since then.

Cypress has reviewed the seismic data in the Pure Energy NI 43-101 technical
report Titled "Inferred Resource Estimate for Lithium", dated July 17, 2015.
The data appears to indicate a very favorable lithium brine exploration
target along the western and west central portions of Cypress' property.
Other first order targets exist on the property including extensive
outcropping of altered green claystones and the presence of stockwork veining
localized at paleo hot spring vents discovered during staking of the
property. Cypress believes that additional lithium brines could be localized
at the water table below the outcropping claystones and potentially also
localized along structures cutting these units.

Initial, limited surface sampling by Cypress in January 2016 has returned very
positive results with sample LMHill-3 returning assays of 490 ppm lithium
(Li) and sample LMHill-4 returning 580 ppm lithium (Li). The samples also
contained strongly elevated levels of magnesium, potassium, sodium, and
strontium.

Cypress' Clayton Valley Lithium Project is in an area of outcropping of
hectorite claystones that quite possibly overlie brines at a shallow level.
The core lands cover the immediate easterly extension of Pure Energy's
identified northern resource area. The lithium brines being produced for
almost 50 years at Silver Peak have come from the flanks of Angel and Goat
Islands.

Clayton Valley is located within the Basin and Range Province in southern
Nevada and is an internally drained, fault bounded, and closed basin. Basin
filling strata compose the aquifer system which hosts and produces the
lithium-rich brine. (Zampirro Report 2004).

Terms of the Option Agreement to purchase a 100% interest in the Clayton
Valley Brine Project are;

Year 1: USD$12,500 cash and 350,000 shares of Cypress
Year 2: USD$25,000 cash and 250,000 shares of Cypress
Year 3: USD$50,000 cash and 250,000 shares of Cypress
Year 4: USD$75,000 cash and 250,000 shares of Cypress

The optionor will retain a net smelter return (NSR) of 3% with Cypress having
the right to purchase 2% of the NSR for $1 million. There is no work
commitment with this Option Agreement.

Tesla Motors is driving the current lithium boom in Nevada with the
construction of a Gigafactory, a large-scale lithium-ion battery facility
outside of Sparks Nevada. Market speculations of the likely construction of
additional large-scale lithium battery factories in the region appears based
on the potential of lithium batteries as all purposed energy storage units
that are highly scalable.
