Brilliant Announces Agreement with the Government of Equatorial Guinea

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 22, 2015) - Ivory Resources Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brilliant Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BLT), (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has agreed to relinquish all its rights and interests under the terms of its Exploration Services Agreement with the government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea (the "Government") and to work with the Government to open up the Río Muni area of the country to mining.

Courtenay Wolfe, the Chair of Brilliant, stated "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the government of Equatorial Guinea. We believe that through the survey and interpretive service previously performed by Ivory Resources under the exploration service agreement, a strong foundation has been established for other international mining companies to bring significant benefits to Equatorial Guinea and its people. We look forward to assisting the government and its people in the future."

Under the terms of the agreement reached between Ivory Resources and the Government, the Government agreed to pay Ivory Resources US$31.5 million in cash in three installments. The first installment of US$11.5 million is payable within seven days, the second installment of US$10 million is payable in a further thirty days and the final installment of US$10 million is payable within thirty days thereafter. Upon receipt of the final payment owing, Ivory Resources will withdraw its request for arbitration against the Government, which had been submitted in June 2014.
