Western Sierra Resource Corporation Concludes Transaction With Global Hemp Group to Utilize Strategic Water Infrastructure Assets for Retirement of Debt Obligations and Project Development

Edmond, Oklahoma, UNITED STATES

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo., May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WESTERN SIERRA RESOURCE CORPORATION (“WSRC” or the “Company”) (OTC: WSRC) is pleased to announce that having met all “Conditions Precedent,” and additional required documentation having been executed, the Company has now finalized the transaction with Global Hemp Group, Inc. (CSE: GHG / OTCQB: GBHPF / FRANKFURT: GHG) as outlined in the Definitive Agreement executed with Prescient Strategies Group, LLC (“PSG”), in a private, third party transaction (see news releases of February 8, 2021 for further details).

Completion of this transaction paves the way for creation of the Colorado Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone (“HAIZ”) – a Sustainable Green Enterprise in Northwest Colorado and facilitates capital formation opportunities (a Senior Secured Debt Facility utilizing the water assets as collateral) and subsequent growth through completion of a series of targeted acquisitions strategic for accumulation of long-term real estate assets and enhanced value through expansion of water infrastructure.

The transaction also provides the Company with the opportunity to not only retire its existing debt obligations, but to implement and expand WSRC’s green technology and resource development projects including its Mystere Power Group (MPG) technologies, gold and silver mining project, helium production, oil and gas project and other mineral development projects—in addition to expanding its land and existing water infrastructure assets developed over the last 15 years and currently valued at more than +US$40 Million. The availability of these water assets is a key resource in the development of the Colorado HAIZ, which is being developed under the banner of Innovative Hemp Technologies (“IHT”). IHT’s core objective is to develop “green” and “affordable” homes in a Planned Unit Development utilizing hemp-based construction materials to meet historical pent-up demand in the area. The project will maximize the beneficial use of the water assets through all aspects of the HAIZ. This will complement the project’s onsite development of largescale irrigation and cultivation of industrial hemp and the manufacture of hemp-based construction products and textiles. The project will significantly expand the existing water rights and infrastructure assets while generating multiple revenue streams for the Company. In addition, the project will create significant employment opportunities in the region.
