VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 03, 2017) - Golden Predator Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: GPY) (OTCQX: NTGSF) (the "Company" or "Golden Predator") announces that it has entered into a mineral property purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Bearing Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: BRZ), a British Columbia Corporation listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("Bearing Resources") pursuant to which Golden Predator has agreed to purchase all of Bearing Resources' undivided interest in certain mineral claims (the "Claims") located in the Upper Hyland River area in the southeast region of the Yukon Territory (the "Property") (the "Acquisition").

In consideration for the Claims, Golden Predator will pay to the Vendor an aggregate cash payment in the amount of $275,000, payable over a 48 month period from the execution date of the Agreement (the "Execution Date"). In addition, Golden Predator will issue 35,000 common shares of the Company to the Vendor upon TSXV approval, and a further 50,000 common shares on the date that is 8 months from the Execution Date. Golden Predator has also agreed to issue up to $600,000 worth of common shares of the Company to the Vendor on the dates that are 20 months, 32 months, and 48 months from the Execution Date, at a price per share equal to the 21-day VWAP as at the date of issuance, subject to a floor price equal to the minimum price permitted under the TSXV policies.

Pursuant to the Agreement, Golden Predator will grant to the Vendor a 2% net smelter return royalty on certain of the claims and a 1% net smelter returns royalty on the remaining claims (the "NSR"). Golden Predator may re-purchase 50% of the NSR, at any time, for the purchase price of $1,000,000.

Completion of the Acquisition and the obligation to make any payments other than the initial cash payment and share issuance is conditional upon completion by Bearing Resources of its previously announced transaction with Li3 Energy Inc ("Li3").
