Golconda Resources Ltd. (the "Corporation" or "Golconda") (TSX VENTURE:GA) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lyncorp Drilling Services Inc. ("Lyncorp Drilling") has entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Lyncorp International Ltd. ("Lyncorp International") (the "Transaction") pursuant to which Lyncorp Drilling agreed to sell four hard-rock drilling rigs and related inventory and equipment (the "Assets") to Lyncorp International in consideration of Lyncorp International reducing the amount owed to it by Lyncorp Drilling by $750,000. The total indebtedness of Lyncorp Drilling to Lyncorp International as at December 31, 2012 and prior to giving effect to the Transaction is $3,192,773.

The sale of these assets is in-line with the Corporation's strategic move into the oil and gas exploration and production business.

Lyncorp International is controlled by David Mullen, a director of the Corporation. Together, David Mullen and Lyncorp International hold approximately 48.5% of the outstanding common shares of the Corporation.

The Corporation has determined that the exemptions from the various requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 are available for the sale of the Assets to Lyncorp International (Minority Approval - Fair Market Value Not More Than 25% of Market Capitalization).

The closing of the Transaction is subject to final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

Golconda's first vertical well, drilled on Cold Lake First Nation land with its joint venture partners, Tri-Rez E-bay Energy Ltd., and a Calgary-based private oil and gas company, has been equipped for production and testing and clean-up has been ongoing for the past month. Golconda expects to announce further results in the coming weeks.
