Callinan Royalties to Conduct an Independent Audit of HudBay's Net Profits Calculations


VANCOUVER, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Callinan Royalties Corporation ("Callinan") has executed a standstill agreement with Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting Co., Limited ("HudBay") , a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hudbay Minerals Inc., which places in abeyance Callinan's law suit in respect of its Net Profits Interest and Royalty agreement with Hudbay dated January 1, 1988 while Callinan conducts an independent audit.

In the law suit, which was commenced in 2007 in the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench, Callinan alleges that HudBay has not properly accounted to Callinan for the net profits interest ("NPI").

The law suit was prolonged while Callinan pursued an application against Deloitte & Touche, LLP ("Deloitte"), HudBay's auditor for production of Deloitte's working papers prepared in connection with Deloitte's annual audit of the NPI and opinion to the effect that the NPI had been properly calculated.

Although the application did not initially succeed, Callinan prevailed on appeal and production of the working papers was ordered by the Manitoba court. Please refer to Callinan's news release dated July 04, 2011 for details. Deloitte advises that the working papers will be made available by September 15, 2011.

Under the standstill agreement, Callinan will initially audit the NPI calculations for four selected years, namely 1993, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Callinan has retained Grant Thornton LLP to conduct the independent audit. HudBay has agreed to cooperate with the auditors and to supply all available documents reasonably requested for the audit.

In return, Callinan has agreed to hold the law suit in abeyance during the conduct of the audit while retaining the right at its sole discretion to terminate the audit and proceed with the law suit on reasonable notice in writing to HudBay of not less than 30 days.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
