VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 10, 2023 /CNW/ - Eros Resources Corp. ("Eros") (TSXV: ERC) and Lincoln Gold Mining Inc. ("Lincoln") (TSXV: LMG) are pleased to announce that the companies have signed a non-binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") to begin negotiations for Lincoln to acquire the Bell Mountain project from Eros. As a result of the proposed transaction, Eros. will acquire shares in Lincoln.

The leadership team at Eros is optimistic about the potential outcomes of this strategic move, believing that the transformation into a holding company and the collaboration with Lincoln will unlock new growth opportunities and further enhance the company's position in the mining sector.

The Bell Mountain project is located in Churchill Country, Nevada approximately 3 hours drive from Reno. Bell Mountain has excellent access and is in a mining friendly County. Details of the purchase arrangement are being negotiated at present and should be finalized shortly. Lincoln is very familiar with the project as it was part of Lincoln's group of projects several years ago, until it was optioned and sold to Eros. The Bell Mountain project is made up of 174 unpatented lode claims and is under the jurisdictions of the Bureau of Land Management and the State of Nevada. The property is 100% controlled by Eros and has a gold and silver resource. The Bell Mountain project has all major permits in place to advance it through construction and into operations.

Lincoln believes that the two projects, the Bell Mountain and the Pine Grove Pine Grove combined will make for an attractive mining operation for a number of reasons. Lincoln's Pine Grove project is located in Lyon County, only a two-hour drive from the Bell Mountain project. The properties are close enough in distance so that one team of management, engineering, environmental, cultural, and administrative personnel could operate both properties and one recovery plant could handle both projects. Both projects are advanced-stage gold exploration projects with established resources and both projects have significant exploration potential. All these factors will help reduce overall capital and operating costs and will make for an exciting operating plan.

Detailed plans for starting operations are being worked on. With the excellent exploration potential at both operations Lincoln believes that there is a chance to increase the gold/silver resources at both properties leading to increased gold production and mine life. 

This enhanced mine life provides investors with reduced risk, as there will be an opportunity to utilize capital infrastructure over a longer time frame. The strategic utilization of capital infrastructure not only minimizes financial risk but also strengthens the operational resilience of the combined project.

The extended operational horizon aligns with Eros Resources Corp.'s commitment to responsible and sustainable mining practices while capitalizing on favorable market conditions.

Additionally, the allocation of funds for this venture has been meticulously considered. Lincoln will be responsible for arranging the capital required to bring Bell Mountain into production, minimizing the financial burden on Eros. This strategic allocation of funds underscores Eros' dedication to prudent resource management and its focus on generating value for its shareholders.

As negotiations progress between Eros Resources Corp. and Lincoln Gold Mining Inc, both companies will work diligently to reach an agreement that serves the best interests of all stakeholders. The proposed transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
