TORONTO, ONTARIO, February 23, 2017: Cordoba Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: CDB; OTCQX: CDBMF) ("Cordoba" or the "Company") and its joint-venture partner, High Power Exploration Inc. ("HPX"), a private mineral exploration company indirectly controlled by mining entrepreneur Robert Friedland’s Ivanhoe Industries, LLC, are pleased announce that Cordoba has been named to the 2017 TSX Venture 50, a ranking of top performers on the TSX Venture Exchange over the last year.

We are aggressively following up on last year’s exploration successes at San Matias with three drill rigs testing new high-priority targets."
