Toronto, Canada, June 5, 2015 - Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q; “Eloro”) and Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE:TTC; “Tartisan”) are pleased to announce that they have amended the terms of the option and joint venture agreement (the “Agreement”), whereby Eloro has been granted the right to acquire an additional 10% in the option to now earn a 60% interest in the royalty-free La Victoria Polymetallic Project, Ancash, Peru, wholly-owned by Tartisan.
The consideration for the additional 10% earn-in interest is the payment of CDN$120,000 to Tartisan, payable in two instalments; CDN$75,000 upon signing (paid) and CDN$45,000 payable on or before September 1, 2015.
The Agreement now states that Eloro can earn a 60% interest in the La Victoria Polymetallic Project with CDN$1,500,000 in exploration expenditures, including CDN$250,000 by January 2016 and the remainder by January 2019, as well as the payment of CDN$270,000 in cash, of which CDN$175,000 has been paid to date.
Pursuant to the amended terms of the Agreement, Eloro has also now been designated Operator for the earn-in phase of the option period, as well as the joint venture phase, upon Eloro completing its earn-in obligations.
“This additional earn-in option interest underlies our confidence that the La Victoria Polymetallic Project is one of discovery merit”, said Eloro Chairman and C.E.O. Mr. Tom Larsen, “and we look forward to commencing our drill program as soon as possible”.
A detailed program of geological mapping, mechanized trenching, and diamond drilling is planned for 2015 on the La Victoria Polymetallic Project once the Declaración de Impacto Ambiental (“DIA”) project environmental permit has been approved by the Peruvian Ministry of the Environment.
