Vancouver, British Columbia, April 13, 2004 (TSX Venture: EMX) – Eurasian Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned Turkish subsidiary, Eurasia Mandencilik, was granted thirty-one new exploration licenses in Turkey, totaling 837.6 square kilometers of prospective exploration ground. These new licenses were acquired via government auctions concluded in March. The Company successfully won twenty-four out of thirty-one competitive bids, and acquired the other seven licenses by single application.

All of the new properties are located in either the West Anatolia gold province or the Eastern Pontides metallogenic belt. The properties are distinguished by close association with known mineral occurrences, geochemical anomalies, or mineralized alteration zones. Both gold and copper exploration targets are included in the new property package.

The Company now controls a total of 59 exploration licenses covering 1,657 square kilometers, and has become one of Turkey’s largest exploration landholders. The Company is currently evaluating its property acquisitions with the beginning of this year’s field season now underway. The Company anticipates spending $300,000 during the remainder of 2004 on surface geologic and geochemical surveys to further evaluate the Company’s current property holdings in Turkey.
