Western Sierra Resource Corporation Announces 2nd Key Land Acquisition For Initial Phases of the Affordable Residential Development Component of the Colorado Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone

Edmond, Oklahoma, UNITED STATES

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo., May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WESTERN SIERRA RESOURCE CORPORATION (“WSRC” or the “Company”) (OTC: WSRC) is pleased to announce that the Company, in conjunction with its partner Global Hemp Group Inc. has entered into a second strategic property acquisition that will be utilized in the development of its Colorado Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone (HAIZ) in Northwest Colorado. The fully executed contract for the purchase of approximately 175 net acres of annexed and entitled land will serve as the catalyst for the Company’s initial Planned Unit Development (PUD) of “green” and “affordable” homes, as well as irrigated industrial hemp cultivation. This is part of the Company’s “Master Plan” to attract and showcase Industrial Hemp and related green and carbon neutral/negative building technologies to the World.

Earnest money in the amount of US$250,000 has been deposited pending completion of due diligence to include title search, survey, and on-site property inspection. Subject to completion of due diligence on or before June 11, 2021, the earnest money will become non-refundable, and the purchase will be scheduled for closing, with final payments for the property payable on or before December 11, 2021.

Land Planning and Engineering Firms have been engaged by the Company. Immediately following the June 11th due-diligence completion date, the Company will be coordinating with the City Planners, Building Department, and its own consultants to establish a detailed land use plan from which to efficiently stage development of both properties totaling approximately 220 acres. Details of the transaction, and the core features of the vision shared by the City and the Company for a sustainable, affordable, and green community will be forthcoming as those events unfold and the HAIZ comes to fruition.

Hemp-Based Sustainable Community and Colorado Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone
WSRC and Global Hemp Group Inc. are preparing to build a hemp-based “Sustainable Community” from the ground up, strategically located in a beautiful part of northwestern Colorado, a location in great need of affordable housing.

The project will utilize hemp from its eco-friendly farm processed into carbon neutral/negative building materials at its nearby industrial campus. The hemp-tech “campus” will serve as incubator for the development and production of new hemp-tech intellectual property and will also serve to showcase best-in-class carbon reducing building technologies. This unique initiative will be an open invitation to collaborate with leading hemp-tech R&D scientists, academic partners, community stakeholders, and hemp-tech start-up entrepreneurs from around the world. Our ultimate Corporate Vision is contributing towards the development of a zero-carbon footprint living environment supportive of a healthy community model for the future. In order to achieve this vision, the Company will become a leader in the establishment of a “Gold Standard” in hemp-tech building sciences.

We intend to prove this model out and then help others world-wide do the same, by securing strategic vertical integration from growing hemp and processing it into various industrial, value-added marketable products for the massive untapped North American hemp building market and beyond. We believe in, are excited about and are championing hemp as a key to the carbon reducing building sciences revolution beginning to unfold, and to proudly offer products the planet desperately requires to win the war on global warming.
