Erin Ventures Proposes Royalty Interest Financing

May 12, 2014



Victoria, British Columbia CANADA, May 12, 2014 /FSC/ -Erin Ventures Inc. [TSXV: EV] proposes to raise up to $5 million through the sale of royalty interests in its Piskanja boron property.  Erin intends to sell units at a price of $1.00 per Unit.  Each Unit will consist of one common share at a price of $0.06 per share, a share purchase warrant with an exercise price of $0.40 and a term of 3 years (subject to an accelerated exercise provision if the shares trade above $0.50), and $0.94 of the Unit price will be allocated to the purchase of a proportionate gross sales royalty ("GSR") interest in the Piskanja property.  Five million units will represent a total of a 5% GSR interest.  The aggregate GSR will be reduced to 1.25% after the GSR holders have received a 200% pay out.

Erin will have the right to buy back the GSR interests either for cash or for shares and two-year warrants.  The purchase price for the GSR interest will be 200% of the cost in the first two years, increasing by 50% of the cost each year thereafter to a maximum of 350%.  If the buyback is for shares, the share price will be a 15% discount to the then market price (subject to the market price achieving certain minimum amounts) and the warrant exercise price will be 150% of the then market price in the first year and 200% of the market price in the second year.  GSR holders will have the right to convert their GSR interest into shares of Erin on each anniversary date of the GSR agreement for four years.  The conversion rate will be 200% of the cost for the first two years, increasing by 50% of the cost each year thereafter to a maximum of 300%, reduced by the amount of all royalties paid or accrued prior to conversion, and the shares will be issued at a 5% discount to the then market price (subject to the market price achieving certain minimum amounts).

Erin intends to use the proceeds from this financing to fund exploration and other expenses on its wholly owned Piskanja boron project in Serbia, and for working capital.  Finder's fees of up to 7% may be paid in cash.

This proposed financing is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.  There is no assurance that Erin will receive Exchange approval for this transaction or that it will be able to complete the proposed financing in whole or in part.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Blake Fallis, General Manager
