Stelmine acquires 100% of the Courcy project
Québec, September 26, 2017- Stelmine Canada Ltd. (« Stelmine ») (STH-TSXV) Exploration work resulting from systematic prospecting, mapping and overburden stripping on the Courcy property prompted Stelmine management to buy back immediately all Exploration J.F.’s and its partners’ holding in the project.
Since mid-June 2017, under the supervision of its Exploration Committee—geologists Michel Boily and Normand Goulet, who are specialized in geochemistry, metallogeny and structural geology—the Company has been carrying out an intensive exploration campaign on the Courcy property, located in the eastern portion of the Opinaca sub-province, which gave rise to the Éléonore Mine. This work provides a new geological interpretation of the sector, based on a metallogenic model associating gold mineralization with silicate iron formations (BIF) in a basin dominated by deformed, metamorphosed metasediments associated with volcanic assemblages (August 22, 2017 press release).
In exchange for Stelmine’s buyback of Exploration J.F.’s and its partners’ 10% interest in the Courcy property and cancellation of the right to a 1.25% royalty and half of a discovery bonus, Stelmine will pay Exploration J.F. and its partners $20,000 and issue 350,000 Company shares. Stelmine will grant a 0.25% royalty and a discovery bonus of $0.50 per ounce of gold for reserves totaling 5,000,000 ounces or more.
The transaction is subject to a regulatory 4-month-plus-1-day hold period (restrictions on resale). After that, Exploration J.F. and its partners will not be authorized to sell, on a given day, more than 10% of all Stelmine shares traded on stock markets that day without informing Stelmine 5 days before the transaction date and obtaining its prior consent.
This agreement and the proposed issuing of shares to Exploration J.F. and its partners are conditional on TSX Venture Exchange approval. In the context of the proposed share issue, the Company is availing itself of the prospectus exemption provided for in section 2.16 of the instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions.
