VANCOUVER, Dec. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Altan Rio Minerals Limited, TSX.V: AMO ("Altan Rio" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the execution of a Definitive Agreement (the "Agreement") pursuant to which the Company can acquire a 100% interest in the Khavchuu gold project ("Khavchuu"), located in northern Mongolia, subject to a 2.105% NSR royalty. The Agreement, dated August 17th, 2012, supersedes the former Heads of Agreement, dated April 4th, 2011.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Altan Rio will make cash payments totaling US$75,000 (of which $60,000 has been paid and $15,000 is payable on or before the date that is 30 months from May 3rd, 2011 (the "Commencement Date")), issue 760,000 common shares in the capital of the Company upon TSX.V approval and make a final payment of either US$285,000 or the equivalent in common shares in the capital of the Company on or before the date that is 30 months from the Commencement Date. In addition, US$300,000 in cumulative property expenditures must be incurred within 24 months of the Commencement Date.

Khavchuu, which covers an area of 71.4 km2, is an early-stage exploration project located 10 km west of Centerra Gold's Boroo mine and mill complex (~2 Moz resource base, most of which has since been extracted). Recent Phase 1 drilling intersected high grade gold (up to 11.49 g/t over 1 m) and the Company is keen to undertake further evaluation.
