August 14, 2020 – Global Vanadium Corp. (GLV: TSX-V) (“Global” or the “Company”) reports it has closed an option agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire up to a 100% interest in the Stony Lake East Gold Project located in the Grand Falls – Bishops Falls area of the Province of Newfoundland from District Copper Corp. (“District”) a TSX Venture listed company (DCOP.V). The Stony Lake East Gold Project is comprised of 8 mineral licenses covering a total of 13,625 hectares as announced on July 30, 2020.
The Stoney Lake East Gold Project is located within the Cape Ray/Valentine Lake structural trend in Central Newfoundland - Canada’s newest emerging orogenic gold district. The Stony Lake East Gold Project covers 27 kilometers of this favourable trend between Sokoman’s Moosehead discovery to the northeast and the Twilight zone to the southwest. In 2019 District carried out a field program focused on prospecting, mapping and sampling in the identified target areas and a property-wide airborne magnetometer and radiometric survey to map bedrock lithologies, structural features and areas of structurally controlled potassic alteration. The ground field work covered the northern portion of the property and either expanded known zones of gold mineralization or identified new areas of highly anomalous to high grade (up to 15 g/t Au) gold mineralization. The mineralization in each zone remains open along strike.
Global can exercise the option as to a 75-per-cent interest in the property by:
- Paying to District the sum of $75,000 within 15 business days following the date that this agreement is accepted for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange;
- Issuing to District 500,000 fully paid and non-assessable common shares of Global within 15 business days following the approval date;
- On or before the 15-month anniversary of the approval date, paying to District the sum of $125,000 and making exploration expenditures of not less than $150,000;
- Issuing to District 1.2 million fully paid and non-assessable common shares of Global on or before the 15-month anniversary of the approval date;
- On or before the second anniversary of the approval date, paying to District the sum of $150,000 and making additional exploration expenditures of not less than $250,000 (for cumulative exploration expenditures of $400,000);
- Issuing to District an additional 1.6 million fully paid and non-assessable common shares of the purchaser on or before the second anniversary of the approval date.
Global can exercise the option as to a further 25-per-cent interest in the property (for a total interest of 100 per cent excluding any net smelter royalty interest) by: (a) paying to District the sum of $500,000 on or before the third anniversary of the approval date; and (b) issuing to District two million fully paid and non-assessable common shares of Global on or before the third anniversary of the approval date.
Global and District are arm's length parties and the Agreement was not a related party transaction.
Pursuant the terms of the agreement, Global, has now paid District $75,000 in cash and issued 500,000 common shares of Global. The shares of Global issuable under the terms of the Agreement have a deemed price of $0.19.
All securities issued pursuant to the agreement are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance.
