TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 29, 2016) - White Pine Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WPR) (the "Company") announces the resignation of Robert Cudney, Thomas Pladsen, Michael Tait, and Donald Rankin from the Board of Directors and Michael Leskovec as the Company's Chief Financial Officer, all effective February 29, 2016. John Tait and Chris Irwin have been appointed as directors and are the remaining directors of the Company.

The Company has also applied for a voluntary delisting of its common shares from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). The voluntary delisting is subject to the approval of the TSXV.

The Company believes that given current market conditions, the minimal trading activity of the Company's common shares on the TSXV no longer justifies the expense and administrative requirements associated with maintaining its listing. This determination has been made after giving consideration to the available resources of the Company, the likelihood of being able to arrange for potential business transactions and financing, the ability of the Company to satisfy its outstanding obligations in the immediate future, and the extent of financial and other resources that will be required in order to fund future operations of the Company on a going forward basis.
