Murgor Resources to sell royalties on Quebec properties | MGR : TSX-V

KINGSTON, ON, April 7, 2014 /CNW/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (TSXV: MGR) announced today that it has entered into a binding letter of intent to sell its net smelter return (NSR) royalties to Gold Royalties Corporation (TSXV: GRO) on five of its gold exploration properties in Quebec, plus an option for a further NSR on one additional gold exploration property in Quebec.

The royalties consist of:

  • A 1.0% NSR on the Barry-1 property which is not part of the mining concession (subject to a 0.5% buyback provision by Metanor Resources Inc. for $500,000),
  • A 0.5% NSR on the Barry United property (subject to a 0.25% buyback provision by Metanor Resources Inc. for $250,000),
  • A 0.5% NSR on the Windfall "29 Claim" Property (subject to a full 0.5% buyback provision by Eagle Hill Exploration Corp. for $500,000),
  • A 1.0% NSR on the Windfall "184 Claim" property (subject to a full 1.0% buyback provision by Eagle Hill Exploration Corp. for $500,000),
  • A 1.0% NSR on 299 claims of the Waconichi property (subject to a 0.5% buyback provision by Northern Superior Resources Inc. for $1,000,000).

Consideration for the above five NSR royalty interests will be 328,948 common shares of Gold Royalties at a deemed value of $0.38 per Gold Royalties Share.

In addition to the above five NSR royalty interests, Gold Royalties may, upon certain preconditions, acquire a sixth royalty as part of the transaction, being a 1% NSR on 98 claims of the Benoist Property in Quebec, operated by Cartier Resources Inc. Acquisition of the Benoist NSR is subject to a right of first refusal held by Cartier Resources Inc. In the event that the Benoist NSR is also acquired as part of the transaction then the Share Consideration shall be increased by an additional 197,378 common shares of Gold Royalties at the same deemed value.

Closing of the Acquisition is expected to occur on or before April 30, 2014 and is subject to certain conditions, including execution of a definitive agreement and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

"The sale of Royalties on these Quebec properties is part of Murgor's strategy to divest of certain dormant assets to finance its exploration by non-dilutive means.  Murgor has been acquiring exciting properties recently and the proceeds of this sale will serve to explore these new properties.  More details will be released shortly about the new acquisitions when they are completed.," stated Andre C. Tessier, President and CEO of Murgor Resources.
