VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — P2 Gold Inc. (“P2” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:PGLD) reports that it has entered into an amending agreement (the “Amending Agreement”) with an affiliate of Borealis Mining Company, LLC (“Waterton”), an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Waterton Precious Metals Fund II Cayman, LP amending the payment terms for the acquisition of the Gabbs Project located on the Walker-Lane Trend in the Fairplay Mining District of Nye County, Nevada. (See the Company’s news releases dated February 23, 2021, announcing the acquisition of the Gabbs Project, and May 5, 2021, announcing the amendment to the terms of the acquisition of the Gabbs Project).
Under the terms of the Amending Agreement, P2 Gold will now pay to Waterton (a) US$500,000 on May 31, 2022, (b) if the Company completes an equity financing in the second half of 2022, US$500,000 on December 31, 2022 and (c) US$8 million or US$8.5 million on May 14, 2023 (depending on whether US$500,000 is paid on December 31, 2022), provided that if the Company announces the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment prior to May 14, 2023, all outstanding payments will be due on the earlier of 60 days following the announcement of such results and May 14, 2023, and if the Company sells an interest in the Gabbs Project at any time, including without limitation, a royalty or stream, the proceeds of such sale shall be paid to Waterton up to the amount remaining outstanding. The other terms in respect of the acquisition of the Gabbs Project remain unchanged.
“We appreciate Waterton’s support in amending the payment terms for the acquisition of the Gabbs Project,” commented Joe Ovsenek, President and CEO of P2. “A preliminary economic assessment on placing Gabbs in production is targeted for completion in the fourth quarter of this year. Once we have the results of the preliminary economic assessment in hand, we plan on selling a royalty or stream on the Gabbs Project, which would fund the payments due to Waterton to complete the purchase of Gabbs.”
