Bellhaven Signs Definitive Agreement to Transfer its Shares of Minera Cerro Quema, S.A.

PANAMA, REPUBLIC OF PANAMA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2010) - Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BHV) ("Bellhaven" or the "Company"). Further to its news release of August 9, 2010, Bellhaven is pleased to announce that it has signed a Definitive Agreement ("DA") with Pershimco Resources Inc. ("PRO"), to transfer 100% of its shares of, and liabilities related to, Minera Cerro Quema, S.A. ("MCQSA"). This transaction is subject to the final approval from the TSX-Venture Exchange.

As prescribed for in the DA, PRO has paid to Bellhaven US$250,000, and upon receipt of final TSX Venture Exchange approval will release 4.5 million units to Bellhaven, with each unit consisting of one PRO common share and one-half of a PRO share-purchase warrant. Each full share-purchase warrant will entitle Bellhaven to acquire an additional PRO common share over a five-year term at an exercise price of C$0.45 in the first year, escalating by C$0.20 each year thereafter. Further, PRO has made all of the required payments to the previous owners and has assumed all existing debt and other obligations owed by MCQSA and Bellhaven which are related to MCQSA. 

The PRO shares, warrants and shares underlying the warrants issued or issuable to Bellhaven will be subject to a four-month hold period, which commenced September 9, 2010. At the expiry of the four-month hold period, Bellhaven will for the following two months be required to provide ten days written notice to PRO of any intention to sell the PRO securities.

Looking ahead, Bellhaven's role with regard to MCQSA and the project, Cerro Quema, will be an indirect one through its minority shareholding position in PRO. We wish PRO and its talented team of mining professions great success in advancing this project through development and onto production.
