Erin Ventures’ [TSX-V: EV] mineral exploration license for the Piskanja boron deposit in Serbia has been renewed by the Serbian authorities for an additional three year period. The new license covers the same exploration area as Erin’s previous license – approximately 3 square kilometres within the Jarandol basin (including the entire known mineralized area of borates known as Piskanja).

As Erin’s original exploration license was issued under previous Serbian mining laws, Erin was required to renew its license this year in accordance with amended mining regulations that were enacted late in 2011. As a result, this was considered by the Serbian authorities to be a new exploration license rather than the extension of an existing license, resulting in Erin being granted a new 3 year exploration period in accordance with the current regulations.

In accordance with Serbian law, Erin was required to suspend its drilling activity while its license application was being reviewed and processed, but was able to continue with certain other required and ongoing studies that form a part of the Geological Elaborate data base for use in a mining license application. Unfortunately, due to changes in the Serbian government, the license review was delayed by three months, setting back Erin’s drilling schedule. In spite of this unavoidable delay, Erin is endeavoring to complete its current exploration drill program (two holes which are near completion depth and two additional holes, as previously reported) before the end of this year, and to proceed with a mining license application as soon as possible thereafter.
