Mining License Application Process Advances

Erin Ventures Inc. [TSXV: EV] reports that the current exploration phase on its Piskanja borate project is nearing completion. Concurrently, the data from this ongoing program is being collected, analyzed and compiled into a Geological Elaborate, for use in a mining license application, as required by Serbian mining laws (as previously reported in Erin’s news release dated February 21, 2012). It is anticipated that both this exploration phase and a mining license application will be completed during the third quarter of 2012.

Erin’s exploration at Piskanja includes a diamond drill program of HQ and larger diameter vertical core drilling, consisting of in-fill drilling across the known mineralized area at Piskanja, on a 100 metre by 100 metre grid (with a tighter pattern already drilled over a portion of the license area). Engineering, geohydrology, environmental and other studies are also underway in conjunction with this drill program, in the anticipation of a mining license application, and the transition into feasibility and mine development phases.

Erin is ensuring that the project is being developed to internationally accepted NI 43-101 standards, as well as conforming to the requisite Serbian mining standards. By doing so, Erin’s mine development, planning and implementation will conform to the highest standards expected by both the international community, and potential strategic partners.
