Toronto, Canada, October 17, 2016 – Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q) (“Eloro”) and Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE:TTC) (“Tartisan”) are pleased to announce that, in accordance with the terms of the previously announced purchase and sale agreement (the “Agreement”), Eloro has closed the acquisition of a 100% interest in the La Victoria Gold/Silver Property (“La Victoria” or the “Property”) in escrow, pending recording and registration of all applicable transfers with the proper authorities in Peru.
Under the terms of the Agreement (see news release dated August 5, 2016), Eloro has issued Tartisan 6,000,000 common shares and 3,000,000 common share purchase warrants with limited transferability, and paid Tartisan C$250,000 (less adjustments as specified in the Agreement). Eloro owes one further payment of C$100,000, payable or on before July 17, 2017. The share certificates, warrants, funds, promissory note and other closing documents have been delivered into escrow and will be released from escrow forthwith after satisfactory completion of the recording and registration of: i) all transfers of the property interests, with the exception of the San Markito mineral concession, which will be transferred at such time that Eloro makes the final C$100,000 payment, and ii) the receipt of the Declaración de Impacto Ambiental (“DIA”) project environmental permit for the Property, to be approved by the Peruvian Ministry of the Environment.
Pursuant to the terms of the acquisition Eloro granted Tartisan a 2% royalty interest (the “Royalty”) on the Property, half of which can be repurchased by Eloro for C$3 million to reduce the Royalty to 1%.
All securities issued by Eloro pursuant to the Agreement are subject to a statutory 4-month hold period and are subject to a lock-up agreement whereby Tartisan will be restricted from transferring securities of Eloro for a period of 18 months following the closing date, and with limited transferability for a period of four and one half years, all as detailed in the August 5, 2016 new release.
