Erin to sell Belize Gold Project

VICTORIA, Aug. 23 /CNW/ - Erin Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture: EV) is pleased to report that it has entered into a Letter of Intent to sell 100% undivided right, title and interest together with related assets, of its Ceibo Chico gold prospect in Belize. This sale, to an arm's length party, is subject to a 3% NSR Royalty. It is Erin's intention to use the proceeds from this sale to advance its other, higher priority projects.

"It is our strategy to upgrade our portfolio of projects, whenever possible. While the Belize project has potential, we feel that our human and financial resources are better utilized on our other, more advanced projects," said Tim Daniels, President.

The main terms of the agreement are as follows:

    
      1. A $50,000 non-refundable deposit is payable to Erin within 2 weeks
         of completion of due diligence.
      2. An additional $700,000 cash payment is due to Erin upon closing.
      3. Erin retains a 3% NSR on any hard rock production. The buyer may
         purchase the NSR from Erin for $1 million per point, or $3 million
         in total.
      4. The buyer agrees to spend $350,000 on exploration by the third
         anniversary of the agreement or the property reverts back to Erin.
      5. Closing is within 60 days of, and subject to, completion of due
         diligence.
    

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Blake Fallis, CFO
