Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company will pay to DTMC a total of $7 million (Canadian) over 2.5 years as follows:

  • on closing, $1,825,000 in cash
  • on closing, the transfer of the Company’s Bombardier property, which the parties have assigned a value of$1,500,000;
  • twelve months after closing, $2,000,000 subject to acceleration of payment if the mine is in commercial production; and
  • thirty months after closing, $1,675,000 subject to acceleration of payment if the mine is in commercial production

Western Pacific’s President, Eric Saderholm, said:

In addition to the known polymetallic deposits (mineralization occurs in oxide and sulphidic ore), there are numerous other potential targets at Deer Trail, including Moly-Porphyry targets and gold-rich veins and skarns.  This mining district is vastly under-drilled and under-explored which provides significant upside potential for discovery by Western Pacific.
