The transformative acquisition of Melmi EHF, the Icelandic corporation that owned the majority interest in the Thor Gold Project was done by St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. The company announced that it has completed the acquisition and the remainder or the Icelandic mineral licenses not already controlled by St-Georges.
This transformative acquisition gives total control over the mineral licenses of the Republic of Iceland to St-Georges, making it the only junior exploration company to own all the mineral rights of a western country. This acquisition allows St-Georges to control its destiny and plan its exploration campaigns with no interference. It also gives the Company’s geological team access to extensive libraries of geological data, a large number of historical mineral samples and a well-maintained and secured national core shack that will be useable for future development. Furthermore, all the diamond drill cores from the Thor Gold project are now in the Company’s ownership and possession. The Company expects to be able to resample these cores in the process of elaborating its maiden NI 43-101 Gold-Silver and Copper resource estimate on the Thor Gold Project.
As previously disclosed in a press release on July 2, the Corporation will pay up to CA$775,000 in consideration of all the Melmi EHF shares as follows:
-pay $65,000 upon the execution of the definitive share purchase agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”)
-pay an additional $60,000 on the earlier of: (a) 90 days of execution of the Definitive Agreement; and (b) the start of drilling on the Thor Gold Project;
-issue $400,000 of non-transferable debentures of the Corporation bearing a 6% annual interest, maturing 3 years from issuance (the “Maturity Date”), of $100,000 will be convertible into common shares in the capital of SX (the “SX Shares”) at a deemed price of $0.10 per SX Shares, $150,000 at a deemed price of $0.15 per SX Shares, and $150,000 at a deemed price of $0.20 per SX Shares; and
-as additional consideration, subject to and upon all the Licences Application having been granted, issue $250,000 non-transferable debentures of SX bearing a 6% annual interest, maturing 3 years from issuance, and convertible into SX Shares at a deemed price of $0.20 per SX Shares.
Iceland Operational Update
In September, the Corporation drilled a reversed circulation (RC) drill hole for a total length of 124 meters. In October, reconnaissance and follow-up fieldwork was conducted in Vopnafjordur (Vopna) and Trollaskagi (Trolla) projects. Mineralization bearing outcrops were identified and sampled and brought to St-Georges’ secure facilities in Reykjavik for petrographic analysis. Some of these samples were prepared to be sent for assays to ALS Laboratories in Dublin, Ireland. Management expects that the results of these essays will become available later this year, and the Company expects to report on it as soon as the information becomes available.
