Vancouver, British Columbia, January 28, 2014 — Arctic Star Exploration Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX Venture: ADD) is pleased to announce that following its letter of intent with Damon Capital Corp. (“Damon”), as announced on November 5, 2013, it has entered into a definitive property option agreement (the “Agreement”) with Damon Capital Corp., pursuant to which Damon has been granted the option to acquire a 75% joint venture interest in the CAP Property (the “Property”).
As previously announced, the transaction will constitute Damon Capital’s qualifying transaction (the “Qualifying Transaction”) under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”). The Property consists of six contiguous mineral tenures covering approximately 2,353.83 hectares and is located approximately 85 km northeast of Prince George, British Columbia. Damon Capital is an arm’s length exploration company also listed on the Exchange.
Pursuant to the Agreement, in order for Damon Capital to exercise the option to acquire the 75% joint venture interest in the Property, the Company is required to (i) pay to Arctic Star $25,000 on execution of the Agreement (paid) and (ii) incur exploration expenditures on the Property totaling up to $1,450,000 over 36 months as follows:
- $100,000 on or before the first anniversary of Exchange acceptance of the Qualifying Transaction;
- $350,000 on or before the second anniversary of Exchange acceptance of the Qualifying Transaction; and
- $1,000,000 on or before the third anniversary of Exchange acceptance of the Qualifying Transaction.
The Damon Capital can satisfy its initial $100,000 exploration expenditure requirement by paying to Arctic Star $100,000 in cash, upon which Arctic Star will carry out any exploration programs for the first year of the option under the Company’s direction. If the minimum work program is not completed, the Property will revert to Arctic Star.
Completion of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange acceptance and if applicable pursuant to Exchange Requirements. Where applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
