Alexandria Sells Its 40% Stake in Northern Ontario Claims25 Jun 2015
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(June 25, 2015) – Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D)(OTC PINK:ALXDF) (“Alexandria” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed an agreement to sell a 40% interest held by Alexandria subsidiary Murgor Resources Inc. in 22 mining claims in Playfair, Hislop and McCann Townships in northern Ontario in exchange for 8,231,750 Alexandria common shares.
Eric Owens, President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased with this transaction, as the claims are not part of our principal properties. This transaction represents another step in the management of property assets acquired as a result of our buyout of Murgor Resources earlier in the year.”
Alexandria completed the transaction with Victoria Gold Mines (East Timmins) Limited (“Victoria”), the holder of the other 60% interest in the claims. Alexandria retains a 2% net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) on the claims. One-half of the NSR (eg. 1%) may be purchased by Victoria for $750,000 within one year or for $1 million thereafter. Alexandria and Victoria are at arm’s length. No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the transaction.
In other matters, the Company is continuing its exploration activities on its Cadillac Break property package in Val d’Or, Quebec. Current activities focus on prioritizing drill targets for its next round of drilling on the western half of this 35 km long property package, where it has identified a large geologic system consistent with porphyry gold+/-copper mineralization with widespread alteration.
