VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Huakan International Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:HK) (the "Company") announced today that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Gold Crown LLC (the "Purchaser"), an arm's length company, pursuant to which the Company will sell 100% of its interest in the Greenwood Gold Project located near Greenwood, British Columbia to the Purchaser, in consideration for C$5,000,000 and a 2% net smelter returns royalty (subject to reduction to 1% if the price of gold drops below US$1,050) on any ore milled at the Greenwood mill, up to a maximum of $9,000,000 over a 10 year period. The Greenwood Gold Project is comprised of the 200 tonne per day (tpd) Greenwood mill, and the Lexington-Grenoble, Golden Crown, and Lone Star gold/copper properties. The Purchaser has also agreed to make minimum net smelter royalty payments of $500,000 per year, and to make a lump sum payment at the end of the 10 year period, if necessary, to bring the total net smelter royalty payments made to $9,000,000.

Deli Tian, acting President and CEO, states, "All of the stakeholders in the Greenwood Gold Project, including local and regional businesses, communities, and governments, and First Nations will benefit from Gold Crown's intended re-opening of operations this year."

The sale of the Greenwood Gold Project assets will enable the Huakan to focus its resources on continuing to advance its 100% owned J&L polymetallic (gold/silver/lead/zinc) project located near Revelstoke, BC.

The completion of the Proposed Transaction is conditional upon, among other things, approval by the Company's shareholders, which will be sought at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on or around May 12, 2011, and approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
