Eurasian Minerals Announces Upcoming Date of Name Change to "EMX Royalty Corporation" and Provides Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/17 -- Eurasian Minerals Inc. (the "Company" or "EMX") (TSX VENTURE: EMX)(NYSE MKT: EMX) is pleased to announce that the Company will officially change its name to "EMX Royalty Corporation" effective on July 19, 2017. The Company, as EMX Royalty Corporation, will continue to trade under the ticker symbol EMX on both the TSX Venture and NYSE MKT exchanges. The new CUSIP number is 26873J107 and the new ISIN is CA26873J1075. The Company is also rolling out a new web site hosted at www.emxroyalty.com.

EMX Royalty Business Model. The Company's name change highlights its focus on realizing royalty income from a growing and diversified mineral property portfolio that spans five continents. There are three key foundations underpinning the Company's business model:

--  Royalty Generation. EMX has a fourteen year track record of generative
    exploration that has evolved into an avenue to organically generate
    mineral property royalty interests and cash flows. The strategy is to
    leverage in-country geologic expertise to acquire prospective properties
    on open ground through license application or claim staking, and to
    build value through low cost work programs (i.e., mapping, sampling,
    geophysical surveys, etc.). These properties are optioned or sold to
    partner companies for retained royalty interests, advance minimum
    royalty payments, project milestone payments, and other considerations
    that may include equity interests. Pre-production payments provide
    early-stage cash flows to EMX, while partner companies build value
    through exploration and development. EMX participates in the project
    upside at no additional cost, with the potential for future royalty
    payments upon the commencement of production.

    Examples of EMX royalty generation success are the portfolio of
    properties in a) Turkey, including the Balya lead-zinc-silver mine, as
    well as the Akarca gold-silver and Sisorta gold properties being
    advanced towards development by partner companies, b) the western United
    States where EMX has copper and gold royalty properties and properties
    optioned for a royalty interest with companies such as Kennecott
    Exploration Company (Rio Tinto) and Coeur Explorations Inc., c) Sweden
    and Norway consisting of polymetallic properties in historic mining
    districts sold to Boreal Metals Corp. ("BMC") for retained royalty
    interests, an equity interest in BMC, and other considerations, and d)
    Haiti, including gold and copper properties sold to Newmont for a
    retained royalty interest and cash payments. Importantly, in addition to
    the retained royalty interests, the sale of these assets provided
    substantial income to EMX for supporting growth of the Company's
    property portfolio and building shareholder value.

--  Royalty Acquisition. EMX has been pursuing the prudent acquisition of
    royalty property interests since 2011. The purchase of royalty interests
    allows EMX to choose quality assets for acquisition that range from
    producing mines to advanced development properties. These purchases are
    designed to "jump start" organic royalty portfolio growth process by
    providing EMX with immediate to near term royalty cash flow. Although
    the competition to purchase royalty interests is intense, the Company's
    in-country royalty generation initiatives often inform the timely
    identification of top tier acquisition candidates. EMX's royalty
    acquisition initiatives are led by Mr. Thomas Mair, General Manager of
    Corporate Development.

    Key acquisitions to date include the Leeville royalty property in the
    heart of the Northern Carlin Trend, and the Brestovac royalty property
    in Serbia's prolific Timok Magmatic Complex. The Leeville royalty has
    paid gross revenue of US $9.8 million to EMX (current through Q1, 2017)
    from Newmont's Leeville, Turf, and other underground gold mining
    operations. Royalty upside, at no cost to EMX, comes from Newmont's
    delineation of a new gold trend that extends southeast from the Leeville
    mining complex and includes portions of the Rita K and Full House
    projects. EMX's purchase of Timok royalty properties in 2014 included
    the Brestovac license's Cukaru Peki deposit, which is on a fast track
    development schedule by operator Nevsun Resources Ltd. This purchase
    resulted from EMX's on-the-ground experience in Serbia developed while
    building an exploration portfolio sold to Reservoir Capital Corp. in
    2006 for cash and retained royalty interests. One of the properties in
    that portfolio was Brestovac West, which is now an EMX royalty property
    that lies adjacent to the Cukaru Peki discovery, and covers the high-
    grade gold Corridor Zone.

--  Strategic Investment. An important complement to EMX's royalty
    generation and royalty acquisition initiatives comes from opportunistic
    strategic investment in mineral exploration opportunities with under-
    valued upside potential. Exit strategies can include royalty positions,
    equity sales, or a combination of both. As well, these investments can
    lead to EMX's identification of candidates for acquisition or merger.

    An early success resulted from EMX's seed level investment in Standard
    Uranium Corp. that was timed just before the uranium market upswing of
    2005-2007. The Company's recognition of upcoming uranium supply
    shortfalls allowed EMX to quickly realize a substantial profit over a
    two to three year timeframe. EMX's more recent strategic investment in
    IG Copper LLC ("IGC") and the Malmyzh joint venture (51% IGC, 49%
    Freeport-McMoRan) provides significant upside exposure to an emerging
    district scale porphyry copper-gold discovery.

EMX is steadily increasing global revenue streams from royalties, advance royalties and other cash payments to balance overall company-wide expenditures. The goal is to sustain the Company's royalty generation, royalty acquisition, and strategic investment activities while providing multiple opportunities for exploration and production success with minimal dilution to our shareholders.

Share Issuances. EMX intends to issue 20,239 shares (valued at US $18,000) to a senior consultant of the Company in respect of work performed for EMX in the second quarter of 2017 as detailed in the Company's News Release of May 3, 2017. EMX valued the 20,239 shares at the VWAP of its shares on the NYSE MKT for the five trading days ended June 30, 2017.
