Vancouver, British Columbia – July 6, 2017 – Torq Resources Inc. (TSX-V: TORQ, “Torq” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement with a private individual to acquire a 100% interest in mineral claims located in northeastern Newfoundland, Canada (the “Option”). The claims complete the southern portion of the Company’s Gander block and are adjacent to three high grade geochemical anomalies identified in the 2016 till survey (See Figure 1 and the Company’s June 13, 2017 news release).
Under the terms of the Option, the Company can acquire either a 75% or 100% interest in the claims by making the following payments and completing the following work expenditures, respectively:
Cash or Share Payments
On or before June 26, 2018
On or before June 26, 2019
On or before June 26, 2020
Cumulative totals to earn a 75% interest in the claims
On or before June 26, 2021
Cumulative totals to earn a 100% interest in the claims
As described in the table above, certain payments may be made at the election of the Company, in either cash or common shares. These shares would be subject to a four month resale restriction in Canada and the per share value would be the 5-day volume weighted average trading price calculated for the five trading days prior to the date such payment is made.
Michael Kosowan, President and CEO stated, “Securing these mineral claims is a strategic move in establishing a dominant land position in this emerging Canadian gold district. This acquisition fills in a potentially important land area surrounded by Torq’s higher grade samples. Our crews are efficient and will soon be completing much of the exploration for the second phase and are set to extend sampling to these new claims.”
The Option and the issuance of common shares is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Michael Henrichsen, P.Geo, and advisor to Torq, is the Qualified Person who assumes responsibility for the technical disclosures in this press release.
