Bear Lake Gold Completes Sale of Mineral Rights to Armistice Resources
LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Bear Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BLG) today announced that it has completed the sale of the mineral rights on 18 mining claims from Armistice Resources Corp. (TSX:AZ). The 18 mining claims totaling 627 acres (the "Barber Larder Property") are located contiguous to the western boundary of Armistice's McGarry mine.
As announced on April 17, 2012, in consideration for the sale of the Barber Larder Property, Armistice has granted to Bear Lake a 4% net smelter return royalty, subject to Armistice's right to purchase 1% of the royalty for $1,000,000 under certain circumstances. In addition, Armistice has agreed to indemnify Bear Lake from and against any and all claims of whatever kind and nature that may in the future be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against Bear Lake in connection with the Barber Larder Property.
A drift (tunnel) already connects Armistice's McGarry mine to the Barber Larder Property for approximately 400m at a depth of 685m from surface. Accordingly, Armistice has immediate access to the property for rapid, efficient, and cost-effective exploration and development from underground. Armistice has indicated that they expect to begin initial work on the newly acquired claims in 2013.
