X-Terra Resources announces Copper/Cobalt Property acquisition in James Bay, Québec

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Feb. 9, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to acquire the Cobalt Lake Copper/Cobalt Property located 204 kilometres northeast of the city of Chibougamau in the Eeyou Istchee/James Bay territory in the Province of Québec.

The Cobalt Lake Copper/Cobalt Property consists of 40 contiguous mining claims covering an area of approximately 2,142 hectares (21.42 km2). Limited exploration work carried out on the property returned copper values of 0.42% and cobalt values of 0.13% from a bottom lake sediment survey. The lake sediment survey indicates a possible source for a copper/cobalt anomaly and would correspond to a high magnetic anomaly located on the property above the regional glacial drift.

"This acquisition for X-Terra Resources is part of the company's ongoing project to build a portfolio of properties designed to build shareholder value" commented Michael Ferreira, X-Terra Resources' President and Chief Executive Officer.

In order to acquire the Cobalt Lake Copper/Cobalt Property, X-Terra entered into a share purchase agreement for all of the issued and outstanding shares of a private corporation whose sole asset is the Cobalt Lake Copper/Cobalt Property. X-Terra will acquire the shares from one vendor for a cash payment of $10,000 and the issuance of 1,100,000 common shares of X-Terra Resources. The share purchase agreement remains subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

In connection with the acquisition, X-Terra Resources will issue, subject to regulatory approval, including that of the TSX Venture Exchange, 100,000 common shares to Mr. Yves Labrie, who acted as finder for the acquisition.
