Green Swan Closes on ElDee in B.C.'s Golden Triangle

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2012) - Green Swan Capital Corp. ("Green Swan") (TSX VENTURE:GSW) is pleased to announce it has received regulatory approval for its previously announced contemplated acquisition of three additional mining tenures in north British Columbia's Golden Triangle and that it closed on these tenures today. These three non-contiguous mining tenures covering 1,249 hectares are jointly referred to as "ElDee".

"This acquisition is a key step in executing our board's strategy of assembling a focussed portfolio of high-impact Canadian exploration assets," said Peter M. Clausi, Green Swan's President and CEO. "Green Swan will continue to look to acquire exploration assets that fit within our acquisition parameters."


ElDee consists of three non-contiguous mining tenures covering 1,249 hectares, contiguous with NGEx Resources Inc.'s GJ Project. Under an option agreement with Teck Resources Limited, Teck has the right to earn an initial 51% interest by spending $12,000,000 on GJ (including but not necessarily limited to the Donnelly Zone) by December 31, 2014, and up to a 75% interest by spending an aggregate of $44,000,000 by December 31, 2020.

Two of ElDee's tenures are immediately to the south of where Teck effected diamond drilling on the Donnelly Zone in 2011. Details of this drilling can be found at NGEx's website and at SEDAR.

The Agreement

Subject to a Net Smelter Royalty, Green Swan has purchased a 100% interest in ElDee in consideration of the issuance of 180,000 shares (at an agreed price of $0.15 per share), 75,000 Warrants (more particularly described below), and $20,000 cash. Each Warrant has a twelve-month term, is non-transferable, is subject to industry standard adjustments, and entitles the holder to purchase one fully paid Green Swan common share at an exercise price of fifteen cents ($0.15). ElDee is covered by the same Net Smelter Royalty as was described in Green Swan's press release of January 31, 2012.
