November 11, 2019, Toronto, Ontario – Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX: TLG) (OTCQB: CHXMF) (“Troilus” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with O3 Mining Inc. (“O3”), pursuant to which it has acquired Claims CDC-2422145, CDC-2422146 and CDC-2422147 that fall within the boundaries of the northern block of the Troilus Project (the “O3 Claims”). As consideration for the acquisition of the O3 Claims (the “Acquisition”), the Company has issued 300,000 common shares (the “Consideration Shares”) and granted a 2% Net Smelter Royalty to O3 on the Claims (the “NSR”). Troilus will have the right to repurchase 1% of the NSR at any time for CAD$1,000,000.
The O3 Claims cover an area of approximately 1.62 square kilometres or 162 hectares within Troilus’s approximately 16,000 hectare land position (see Figure 1).
CEO Justin Reid commented, “The Acquisition finalizes the consolidation of the strategic land position to the north east of the existing Troilus project site that we began last November with the acquisition of 11,300 hectares from EmGold. Although they only cover a small area, the O3 claims are of particular significance because they align with the geological and +20km mag low geophysics trend that runs from the south west to the north east of the property. Our exploration team is looking forward to getting out into the field to start collecting samples and furthering their knowledge of the mineralization on these new claims.”
Closing of the Acquisition remains subject to various closing conditions, including final approval of the TSX. The Consideration Shares are subject to a four-month statutory hold period as well as a three-year lock-up period during which time O3 shall not have the right to sell, dispose of or transfer the Share Consideration except in accordance with the following schedule: 100,000 Consideration Shares on November 8, 2020, 100,000 Consideration Shares on November 8, 2021 and 100,000 Consideration Shares on November 8, 2022.
