TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —( , Frankfurt: W0I, OTC: WTCZF) (“Copper Lake” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has given notice to (“RMO”) that it has exercised its option to acquire a 75% undivided interest in the Marshall Lake Joint Venture Agreement (“JV Agreement”) as provided in the option agreement dated July 6, 2010 (the “Option Agreement”). RMO retains the remaining 25% interest.
The Company had completed the earn-in to 75% and still had an option to earn-in up to 87.5% by taking the project to the bankable feasibility stage. The Company has determined it is in the best interest of shareholders for Copper Lake to exit the Option Agreement and continue the exploration and development of the property under the JV Agreement. Each party will be responsible for funding its proportionate share of expenditures of the JV Project. Should RMO chooses not to contribute its pro rata share, then RMO’s interest in the JV would be diluted. Once RMO’s interest is reduced to 10%, it is automatically converted into a 1% Net Smelter Returns Royalty. Copper Lake would have the right to acquire the Net Smelter Returns Royalty at any time for CAD 1 million.
Copper Lake will remain the operator of the joint venture.
Donald Hoy, M. Sc., P. Geo., Copper Lake’s Vice President of Exploration, is the Qualified Person responsible for the technical content contained in this news release.
