Serengeti Reports Closing of Definitive Agreement with POSCO DAEWOO for the Kwanika Project and Receipt of $C 7 Million
Vancouver, B.C., November 27, 2017, Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) reports that it has successfully closed the transaction previously outlined in its press release dated October 26, 2017 whereby Serengeti, POSCO DAEWOO Corporation (“PDC”) and Kwanika Copper Corporation (“KCC”) (formerly known as Daewoo Minerals Canada Corporation) have signed a definitive joint venture agreement (the “JVA”) for the exploration and development of the Kwanika copper gold project located in the Quesnel Trough of British Columbia (the "Project"). Pursuant to the JVA, the respective interests of Serengeti and PDC in the Project have been transferred to KCC, a private British Columbia corporation which will serve as the vehicle for the joint venture.
Key terms of the JVA and KCC structure include the following:
- PDC has fully contributed $7.0 million into the KCC controlled bank account and as a result of its current cash contribution combined with its earlier earned 5% share in the Project has received a total of 8.2 million common shares of KCC (representing 35% of the total issued shares of KCC).
- Serengeti has contributed its 95% participating interest in the Project to KCC, in exchange for 15,228,571 common shares of KCC (representing 65% of the total issued shares of KCC).
- PDC’s $7.0 million contribution to KCC will be used to fund a Pre-Feasibilty Study (the “PFS”) for the Project.
- Serengeti retains operatorship of the Project and is immediately entitled to receive $700,000 operator’s fee as first disbursement from the Project funding.
- The Board of Directors of KCC consists of five individuals, three appointed by Serengeti and two appointed by PDC. The President of KCC is David Moore.
Over the next four to six weeks the parties will develop a detailed plan for the execution of the PFS. The PFS work is expected to be completed over the next 15-18 months and will include a substantial drilling program targeting the Central copper-gold zone on the property. The drilling program is expected to be conducted early in summer 2018.
The JVA has been accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange
