SAN DIEGO, March 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Dragon Resources, Inc. (OTC:EARH) ("EARH" or "the Company") today announced that it has accepted third party financing to fund the Deep Marine Salvage ("DMS") Joint Venture. As a result, Earth Dragon and DMS have agreed to cancel their Joint Venture Agreement. As part of this arrangement EARH will retain up to a $5 million distribution linked to recoveries made.
Salvage projects require a risk/reward assessment. Earth Dragon has determined that avoiding dilution in the Company's shares on the DMS Joint Venture is the correct decision. Earth Dragon is in final contract stages of securing additional shipwrecks on its own which Earth Dragon's management believes have a much higher risk/reward ratio combined with an anticipated lower budget.
Earth Dragon's CEO, Mike Johnson, states, "While we're pleased to see the DMS project move forward, we're very excited about the shipwrecks that we'll be working independently. We should have everything finalized shortly and we will inform shareholders concerning the new shipwrecks at that time."
Deep Marine Salvage today stated: "We are very happy with this new arrangement and are looking forward to continuing to move ahead and completing our European waters salvage plans this coming summer. DMS expects to see both companies having a very successful 2013."
Earth Dragon Resources, Inc. will be filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission a copy of the Termination Agreement with DMS via a Form 8-K in the next few days.
