Vancouver, British Columbia, September 7, 2010 (TSX Venture: EMX) – Eurasian Minerals Inc. (the “Company” or “EMX”) is pleased to announce that Newmont Ventures Limited (“Newmont” or “NEM”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM), has selected EMX’s Platon and La Montagne licenses as a Designated Project (to be known as the “Montagne Designated Project”) in accordance with the EMX-NEM Strategic Venture Agreement. EMX and Newmont have been exploring these licenses since 2009 as part of the Regional Strategic Alliance exploration program. Montagne joins La Mine, La Miel, and Grand Bois as EMX-NEM Designated Projects, with significant work programs underway or planned by the joint venture.

Newmont may earn a 70% participating interest in the Montagne Designated Project (the “Project”) by solely funding the first US$10 million in venture expenditures within six years following the issuance of the mining convention and exploration licenses for the Project. If EMX elects that its interest be financed by Newmont, then Newmont may earn an additional 5% interest in the Project.

EMX reported a 1.0 by 1.5 kilometer copper-in-soil anomaly of greater than 0.1% copper and rock samples returning up to 7.52% copper and 3.73 g/t gold from the Platon license’s Vert De Gris porphyry copper-gold prospect on July 20, 2010. Regional BLEG stream sediment geochemical sampling over the Montagne and Platon licenses have yielded multiple gold, copper and molybdenum anomalies that are undergoing field follow-up and evaluation.

EMX is exploring and investing in a first class mineral property and royalty portfolio in some of the most prospective, but under-explored mineral belts of the world.
