As consideration for the NSR Purchase Agreement, the Company has paid Rodinia US$75,000 and has agreed to issue 190,062 common shares of the Company at a deemed value of $0.162 per share, being US$25,000 in C3 Metals common shares calculated based on the 30-day volume weighted average price of C3 Metals common shares on the date of the NSR Purchase Agreement. The Common Shares when issued will be subject to a four month and one day hold period in accordance with Canadian securities legislation and are further subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Kevin Tomlinson, C3 Metals’ CEO stated, “We are pleased to be able to renegotiate the royalty arrangements as we recommence exploration over our high-grade gold and copper projects in Jamaica. Reducing the outstanding royalty on these properties will place us in a better position to advance exploration and introduce a joint venture partner should we decide to do so.”
