LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / April 29, 2014 / Hunter Bay Minerals plc (“Hunter Bay”) (TSX-V: HBY OTCQX: HTBNF) is pleased to announce that it has exercised its option to acquire a 70% interest in the Sela Creek Project, located in eastern Suriname.

The acquisition of a 70% interest was completed pursuant to the terms of the amendment agreement (the “Amendment Agreement”) dated September 5, 2013, amending the terms of its option agreement with Sela Kriki Okanisi Resources N.V. (the “Owner”) dated December 21, 2010 (see news release dated September 5, 2013). As a result, Hunter Bay issued 18,000,000 ordinary shares to the Owner in accordance with the terms of the Amendment Agreement and removed its obligation to incur $2,000,000 in exploration expenditures on the Sela Creek Project.

The Amendment Agreement also provides that the completion date of the scoping study on the Sela Creek Project, which is required to earn an additional 10% in the Sela Creek Project, will be extended from December 21, 2014 to December 21, 2015. Notwithstanding this extension, Hunter Bay will still be required to make a cash payment of $500,000 to the Owner on December 21, 2014 in order to earn the additional 10% interest in the Sela Creek Project.

Hunter Bay’s Chief Executive Officer, Keith Minty, comments that, “The acquisition of a 70% interest in the Sela Creek Project is an important milestone for Hunter Bay. We are happy to have our local partner, Sela Kriki, become a major shareholder of Hunter Bay and look forward to building upon on our strong working relationship with them.”
