VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 12, 2013) - Baja Mining Corp. (the "Company") (News - Market indicators)(OTCQB:BAJFF) is pleased to announce that on behalf of the Korean Consortium, Korea Resources Corporation ("KORES") has confirmed that it will provide the Phase 2 Funding Requirement to Minera y Metalúrgica del Boleo, S.A.P.I. de C.V. (formerly, Minera y Metalúrgica del Boleo, S.A. de C.V., "MMB") as described in the Company's News Release dated July 26, 2012.

Pursuant to receipt of the definitive commitment by KORES on behalf of the Korean Consortium and as contemplated in the July 2012 Interim Funding Agreement, the Company has agreed to a framework for the transfer of its MMB equity and shareholder loans to a KORES appointed entity based on the pro rata contributions made by the Korean Consortium and/or KORES toward the total Phase 2 Funding Requirement of US$443,390,000. Based on Phase 2 contributions made to date of US$259,026,906, representing 58.4% of the Phase 2 Funding Requirement, a further 22.8% equity interest in MMB has been transferred to the Korean Consortium, reducing the Company's equity interest in MMB from 49% to 26.2%. The Company has also transferred to KORES $67,313,147 of its shareholder loans to MMB plus associated accrued interest to adjust the shareholder loans owed by MMB to the Company so they correspond with its proportionate equity interest in MMB as provided for under the July 2012 Interim Funding Agreement.

The framework agreed between the parties provides for three further pro rata transfers of equity and shareholder loans plus accrued interest to the KORES appointed entity upon contributions being made by the Korean Consortium or KORES to MMB of US$60,000,000, US$60,000,000 and US$64,393,094, which will dilute Baja's equity interest in MMB to 20.9%, 15.7% and 10%, respectively. No fixed schedule has been set out for the timing of the further funding contributions to be made by the Korean Consortium or KORES.

Further to the Company's news release of December 3, 2012, the remaining 2010 Project Financing lenders (which no longer include the Export‐Import Bank of the United States, as discussed in the December 3, 2012 release) continue to temporarily forbear exercise of rights and remedies under the 2010 Project Financing pursuant to a third standstill agreement which expires on March 31, 2013. MMB has informed the Company that it continues to actively engage the remaining 2010 Project Financing lenders in a renegotiation of the original project financing in an effort to normalize the loan facilities. The Company is hopeful that the fact of the Phase 2 Funding Commitment having been made will assist MMB in these efforts.
