El Capitan Precious Metals Expands Board of Directors and Names New Corporate Counsel

El Capitan Precious Metals, Inc., (OTCQB: ECPN) announced today that the
Company’s board of directors has been expanded to include two additional
positions and named John Balding and Robert Shirk as new directors.
These new appointments expand the board to seven directors.

In related news, El Capitan Chairman and CEO John F. Stapleton confirmed
that A. Blair Dunn, Esq. has been named Corporate Counsel. Dunn replaces
Arly Richau, who stepped down from that position in late October.

Balding and Shirk join current El Capitan Directors Chuck Mottley, Clyde
Smith, Tim Gay and Danny Martinez.

John Balding’s career has run the gamut from data processing and
military intelligence to commercial lending. He holds a degree in
Mathematics from Southern Oregon University and a Master of Business
Administration from Arizona State University. Among the strengths and
experience Balding brings to the El Capitan board is the ability to
structure sophisticated financial transactions.

Robert Shirk, an active investor in gold and copper mines and oil wells
over the past 35 years, is well-connected in the mining industry in both
the United States and Canada. He is a CPA and has served as CFO for an
Iowa-based real estate organization for more than 40 years. Shirk’s
background includes land development, commercial construction, and
operations, and he has been involved in the governmental processes
related to the purchase and development of raw land.

“Both new directors are welcome additions to a board that has its sights
on delivering value for its shareholders,” said Stapleton, “and I know
they share the current board’s vision for the future.”

As new Corporate Counsel, Dunn is a founding partner of Western
Agriculture, Resource and Business Advocates, LLP. He has served as the
General Counsel and Director of Agricultural Policy for the South Dakota
Department of Agriculture, as well as the Chief Legal Counsel for the
New Mexico water rights brokerage firm of WaterBank. Stapleton believes
that Dunn’s professional and personal background is especially
well-suited for his new role as Corporate Counsel — having grown up on
farms and ranches in Southern New Mexico and holding an undergraduate
degree in Geology— and that he, like the new directors, will play a key
role as the Company moves forward with initiatives to enhance the
opportunities in front of it.

Stapleton acknowledged Richau for his contributions in helping the
Company achieve significant milestones in the past years.

Stapleton also announced that a Finance/Audit Committee has been formed,
chaired by Tim Gay. Committee members include Shirk and Company CFO
Steve Antol.
