Eurasian Minerals Inc.: Advance Notice Policy for Election of Directors

07:00 EST Thursday, February 27, 2014

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 27, 2014) - Eurasian Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EMX)(NYSE MKT:EMXX) (the "Company" or "EMX") announces the adoption by its Board of Directors of an Advance Notice Policy in respect of the election of directors. The purpose of the Policy is to provide shareholders, directors and management of the Company with a clear framework for nominating persons for election as directors of the Company. No person will be eligible for election unless nominated in accordance with the Policy.

The Policy was adopted to further the Company's commitments to: (i) facilitating an orderly and efficient annual general or, where the need arises, special meeting, process; (ii) ensuring that all shareholders receive adequate notice of the director nominations and sufficient information regarding all director nominees; and (iii) allowing shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.

The Policy requires advance notice to the Company where nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors are made by shareholders. The Policy fixes a deadline by which nominations of potential directors must be submitted to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice to the Company.

For annual general meetings of shareholders, notice to the Company of nominations of potential directors must be made not less than 35 days and not more than 60 days prior to the date of the meeting but if the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

For special general meetings of shareholders called for the purpose of electing directors (whether or not called for other purposes), notice to the Company of nominations of potential directors must be made not later than the close of business on the 15thday following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Policy is effective as of February 6, 2014. Pursuant to the terms of the Policy, the Company will seek shareholder ratification of the Policy at its next annual general meeting of shareholders. The Company also intends to formalize the Policy by, subject to obtaining shareholder approval at that meeting, incorporating its terms into its Articles.

The full text of the Policy is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov and on the Company's website (www.EurasianMinerals.com).

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
