Sillenger Completes Divestiture Of Equatorial Guinea Contract In Exchange For Equity Interest

Stocks in this article: BLT SLGX

TORONTO, July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sillenger Exploration Corp. ("Sillenger") (OTCQB:SLGX), is pleased to announce that it has completed an agreement (the "Brilliant/Ivory Agreement") with Brilliant Mining Corp. ("Brilliant") (TSXV:BLT) and its subsidiary, Ivory Resources Inc. ("Ivory"), pursuant to which Sillenger received CDN$2 million worth of securities of Brilliant in exchange for the release of Sillenger's rights in a contract with the government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea (the "EG Agreement").

Sillenger originally received an assignment of the EG Agreement from FCMI Global Inc. ("FCMI") in June 2010.  The EG Agreement provides that FCMI will fly an aerial survey over certain parts of Equatorial Guinea in exchange for certain concessions to exploit the natural resources discovered as a result of such aerial survey.  Pursuant to the Brilliant/Ivory Agreement, Ivory, or its designee, acquired all of the outstanding shares of FCMI and a release from Sillenger of its rights in the EG Agreement in exchange for the issuance to Sillenger of 7,407,407 units of Brilliant (the "Units") at a deemed issue price of $0.27 CDN per Unit for an aggregate value of $2,000,000 CDN. Each Unit consists of one Common Share of Brilliant and one Common Share purchase warrant, which entitles the holder to acquire one (1) Common Share of Brilliant at an exercise price of $0.45 CDN for a period of two (2) years from the date of issuance. The Units are subject to a standard four (4) month hold period.  On May 11, 2011, Brilliant also announced the completion of a private placement at $0.27 per Unit for gross proceeds of $23,000,000.

"This transaction is an endorsement of our business model as a catalyst for governments to attract foreign investment to help unlock their natural resource wealth, promote private sector growth, and establish the foundations for sustainable economic prosperity," stated Mr. John Gillespie, President of Sillenger. "The Brilliant Units represent Sillenger's ongoing carried interest in the Equatorial Guinea project, and are a tangible asset that could potentially add significant future value for Sillenger shareholders"
