Murgor Resources agrees to sell its remaining windfall property interest to Eagle Hill Exploration for net proceeds estimated to be worth $962,500

KINGSTON, ON, March 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (TSXV: MGR) today announced that it has entered into a claims purchase agreement with Eagle Hill Exploration Corporation (TSX-V: EAG) and Cliffs Chromite Ontario Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLF) (Paris:CLF), to sell Murgor's remaining interest in the Windfall 29 Claims and 184 Claims Properties located in Québec.  Murgor's interest in the Windfall Properties consists of a 25% ownership in the Windfall 29 Claims Property, covering 948 hectares, and a 50% ownership in the Windfall 184 Claims Property, covering 8,190 hectares.  Both properties are located immediately north of Eagle Hill's Windfall Lake Property.

Under the terms of the claims purchase agreement, the closing of which remains subject to regulatory approval and the satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions, Eagle Hill will pay $250,000 in cash and issue 9,500,000 common shares of Eagle Hill to Murgor upon closing of the transaction.  Taking into account Eagle Hill's closing share price on the day of signing, the sale represents a total anticipated cash and stock proceeds to Murgor of $962,500.  In addition, Murgor will retain a 0.5% Net Smelter Return (NSR) Royalty on the Windfall 29 Claims Property and a 1% NSR Royalty on the Windfall 184 Claims Property. Eagle Hill retains the right to buy back the 0.5% NSR Royalty on the Windfall 29 Claims Property for $500,000 and/or the 1% NSR Royalty on the Windfall 184 Claim Property for an additional $500,000 at any time prior to first commercial production.

Concurrently with the sale of Murgor's interest in the Windfall 29 and 184 Claims Properties, Cliffs Chromite Ontario has agreed to sell its equivalent interest in the same properties to Eagle Hill for identical consideration.

"Murgor felt that consolidating the property ownership at Windfall was the best way to increase value for all stakeholders in the area," said Andre Tessier, President and CEO of Murgor Resources.  "Murgor keeps significant upside in the projects through NSR Royalties and ownership of Eagle Hill shares.  The transaction also brings a significant boost to Murgor's treasury through non-dilutive means, in very difficult market conditions.  The influx of capital will allow Murgor to return to the field to conduct low-cost exploration on its top priority properties in Ontario and Quebec."
