Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 27, 2019) - Carube Copper Corp. (TSXV: CUC) ("Carube Copper" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the company and OZ Minerals have successfully amended the Royalty Deed with respect to Carube's five 100% owned Special Exclusive Prospecting Licenses ('SEPL') covering 276 square km in Jamaica, West Indies. The licences include Arthurs Seat (SEPL 577), Mt. Ogle (SEPL 573), Windsor Castle (SEPL 576), Berkshire Hall (SEPL 575) and Shirley Castle (SEPL 574) all of which Carube Copper acquired from OZ Minerals in 2016.
Under the terms of the amended agreement, OZ Minerals agrees to:
- waive the $1,500,000 payment within a year of commencement of commercial production if the mineral product is less than 10,000 tonnes per annum.
- reduce their 2% NSR to a 1% NSR and agree to a buy-back of 1/2 of the 1% NSR for $0.25M on any of the licenses.
Renegotiation of Royalty Deed
The successful renegotiation of, and amendment to, the Royalty Deed places the company in a stronger overall position to negotiate with interested parties.
Mr. Stephen Hughes, CEO, commented: "The signing of the amended Royalty Deed paves the way for the company to negotiate partnerships for the exploration development on any of these 100% owned copper and gold licenses. We have received expressions of interest from several companies in relation to these Jamaican assets and we will continue to discuss a number of strategic alternatives."
