Toronto, Ontario – February 9, 2021 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an investment agreement (“Investment Agreement”) with Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (“Osisko”) pursuant to which Osisko has agreed to (i) purchase 6,250,000 common shares of PJX at a subscription price equal to C$0.16 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of C$1,000,000, and (ii) acquire a 0.5% net smelter return royalty (“NSR”) on the Company’s Gold Shear, Eddy, Zinger and Dewdney Trail properties for aggregate cash consideration of C$1,000,000.
John Keating, President and CEO of PJX commented, “Osisko has an exceptional track record in making early-stage investments in gold deposit discovery and development. Their investment in the Vulcan Gold Belt is validation of the work PJX has done to date. PJX has consolidated 100% of the mineral rights to the largest land holdings in the Vulcan Gold Belt in southeastern, BC, Canada. Over 15 gold target areas have been identified to date with potential for more. We look forward to Osisko’s support and the opportunity to consult with their team to explore and develop the gold potential.”
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the common shares and the NSR for expenditures on the Gold Shear, Eddy, Zinger and Dewdney Trail properties located in the Vulcan Gold Belt and for general working capital.
All securities issued to Osisko pursuant to the Investment Agreement are subject to a statutory four month hold period. The issuance of the securities is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The transaction is expected to close by the end of February, 2021.
Vulcan Gold Belt Highlights
The Gold Shear, Eddy, Zinger, and Dewdney Trail Properties represent the largest consolidated land package in the Vulcan Gold Belt, a potential new gold camp located near Cranbrook, southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The Vulcan Gold Belt occurs within the Sullivan base metal mining district. Historical focus on Sullivan type zinc, lead and silver mining is part of the reason the district’s gold potential has been overlooked and underexplored. The Vulcan Gold Belt fits modern geological models and criteria for the formation of a world class gold camp. PJX has already identified a pipeline of priority target areas to explore and drill with potential to make multiple gold discoveries.
The foregoing geological disclosure and content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by John Keating P.Geo. (qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.
