LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2011) - Dunav Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DNV) ("Dunav") and Dundee Precious Metals Inc. (TSX:DPM) ("DPM") are pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition by Dunav of DPM's 100% interest in the Tulare copper and gold project, the Surdulica molybdenum project, and other early stage projects located in Serbia (hereinafter referred to as the "Serbian Projects"). As previously announced Dunav, having met the minimum equity financing of $10 million ($16,725,968 was raised) and the revised minimum expenditures of $1 million on the Serbian Projects, notified DPM of its decision to exercise the option to acquire the Serbian Projects.

As a consideration for the acquisition, Dunav issued to DPM 47,257,922 common shares and warrants to purchase 36,790,009 common shares at a price of $0.42 each for a period of 24 months from issuance, subject to acceleration under certain circumstances. In accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, the securities issued to DPM are subject to escrow requirements for a Tier 2 issuer. All securities issued to DPM are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws until January 2, 2012. Following this transaction, DPM holds approximately 47.5% of the issued and outstanding capital of Dunav on a non–diluted basis.

The companies also entered into ancillary agreements, including: a standstill agreement relating to certain conduct of DPM, dependent upon its ownership position in Dunav, relating to take-over bids; and a qualification rights agreement pursuant to which DPM will be entitled to request the qualification for distribution by prospectus in all provinces of Canada (other than Québec) of DPM's shares of Dunav, at DPM's expense, as long as DPM holds more than 20% of the outstanding shares of Dunav. DPM also has a participation right to maintain its pro-rata ownership in Dunav.

During the option period, Dunav has spent approximately $1.6 million on the Serbian Projects. On April 28, 2011, Dunav released results of its initial exploration program on the Tulare copper-gold project. Dunav expects to announce an update on its exploration program shortly.
