Valterra Acquires Poconé Mining Mineracao Ltda
September 4, 2020
Valterra Resource Corporation (“Valterra” or the “Company”) has agreed to purchase all of the issued and outstanding quotas of Poconé Mining Mineracao Ltda (“PMM”), a private Brazilian company which holds a 100% interest in the Lima gold property and a binding agreement to purchase a 100% interest in the Livramento gold property, both located in the Poconé Mining District, Brazil. As consideration for the acquisition of PMM, the Company will issue 8,000,000 common shares in the capital of Valterra and 8,000,000 share purchase warrants, with each share purchase warrant exercisable to purchase one common share of Valterra at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of 4 years. As additional consideration, the vendors of PMM will receive a 1.5% net smelter return royalty from production on all existing and future properties held by PMM.
The PMM operational team has 14 years of successful mining experience in Brazil and currently live in the small town of Poconé. They will operate PMM’s projects for a monthly fee. Valterra’s management believes this acquisition is a rare opportunity to acquire advanced gold properties at exceptionally attractive terms. The acquisition of PMM is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
In other corporate matters, the Company has amended its option with respect to the acquisition of the Los Reyes property in Chihuahua, Mexico. Pursuant to the amendment agreement, US$70,000 of the US$100,000 option payment due on August 11, 2019 was deferred until December 31, 2019. The Company has agreed to issue 40,000 common shares in the capital of Valterra to the optionors of the property in consideration of this payment deferral. The issuance of shares pursuant to the Los Reyes amendment is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
The Company has terminated its option to acquire the Weepah project in Nevada.
