Diamondhead Casino project update
December 15, 2010
Diamondhead Casino Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: DHCC) (the "Company")
announced that on December 10, 2010, it had entered into a Letter of Intent "LOI")
with Phoenix Gaming and Entertainment, LLC.
DHCC owns, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mississippi Gaming Corporation,
approximately 404 acres of land in Diamondhead, Mississippi. The property is
lien-free and debt-free and is zoned for a casino. The property fronts
Interstate 10 for approximately two miles and the Bay of St. Louis for
approximately two miles.
Under the LOI, Phoenix proposes to purchase 25 acres of land for $1 million per
acre to be used, in part, for the construction of a casino. DHCC has agreed to
give Phoenix an additional 15 acres of land to be used for the construction of
roadways and right-of-way requirements, greenery, buffering, on-site mitigation
and/or the footprint for a possible parking garage. Under the LOI, DHCC retains
the right to construct its own casino on the remaining land, but Phoenix gets
the right of first refusal with respect to any additional, future gaming
development by other parties on the property. The LOI is a non-binding agreement
and unless and until DHCC and Phoenix sign a Definitive Agreement, the
relationship between the parties will be non-exclusive and DHCC shall be free to
continue discussions with other interested parties. Unless extended by the
parties, the LOI will automatically terminate if no Definitive Agreement is in
place by January 31, 2011.
