VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 17, 2013) - Colombian Mines Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CMJ)(FRANKFURT:X6C) - ("Colombian Mines" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Australian based, Overland Resources ("Overland"), has entered into an option agreement (the "Agreement") whereby Colombian Mines retains a free carried interest through to production on the Company's Rio Negro Project, subject to necessary regulatory approval. Overland may earn an undivided 90% joint venture interest by sole funding $5 million in exploration and producing a Joint Ore Reserves Committee compliant Pre-Feasibility Study within five (5) years and a full Feasibility Study within the recommended timeline to be specified in the Pre-Feasibility Study. Additionally, Overland will make the following cash and share payments to Colombian Mines:

  1. US$75,000 cash upon execution of the Agreement.
  2. Within six (6) months of signing the Agreement, issuing US$75,000 worth of Overland shares, at an issue price based on the 30 day volume-weighted average price ("VWAP") preceding the date of signing or 30 day VWAP preceding the date of the issuance, whichever is lower.
  3. On the first anniversary of signing: US$150,000 cash or at Overland's discretion, US$75,000 cash and US$75,000 worth of Overland shares based on the 30 day VWAP immediately prior to the issuance of the shares. Greater than US$75,000 worth of Overland shares may be issued with the Company's consent.
  4. On the second anniversary of signing: US$150,000 cash or at Overland's discretion, US$75,000 cash and US$75,000 worth of Overland shares based on the 30 day VWAP immediately prior to the issuance of the shares. Greater than US$75,000 worth of Overland shares may be issued with the Company's consent.

In addition to the above payments, Overland has the following minimum work commitments:

  1. Year 1 - US$150,000 (irrevocable work commitment).
  2. Year 2 - US$250,000.
  3. Year 3-7 - Minimum of US$200,000 per annum.

The Rio Negro Project comprises three (3) contiguous concession contracts together with three (3) pending concession applications covering approximately 2,245 hectares. Regional mapping indicates that the property covers roughly 16 kilometers of highly prospective ground along the Bucaramunga Fault Zone at and near the interpreted intersection with structures related to the California Belt. The deep seated Bucaramunga Fault Zone is believed to be the primary control for focusing gold bearing magmas and fluids that developed the California and Vetas Districts that are estimated to host more than 16 million ounces of past production plus known resources. Reconnaissance sampling and mapping has returned values to 23 grams gold per metric tonne (g/T Au from vein structures), and also identified porphyry style Quartz - Sericite - Pyrite (QSP) alteration on the property that has yielded values to 3 g/T Au.

Importantly, this Agreement is consistent with the prospect generation portion of the Company's business model, assuring substantial work will be done on the property, maintaining significant upside exposure to discovery and future production potential for the Company's shareholders, with a free ride and no additional costs through to production.
