Toronto, Ontario – Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q) (“Eloro”) and Tartisan Resources Corp. (CSE:TTC) (“Tartisan”) are pleased to announce the completion of the previously announced acquisition of a 100% interest in the La Victoria Gold/Silver Property (“La Victoria” or the “Property”) by Eloro from Tartisan, following release from escrow today. Eloro’s 100% interest in La Victoria is held by its wholly-owned Peruvian-based subsidiary, Compañia Minera Eloro Peru S.A.C., following the registration of title by the proper authorities in Peru.
The acquisition was paid for by Eloro issuing Tartisan 6,000,000 common shares and 3,000,000 common share purchase warrants with limited transferability, and paying Tartisan C$250,000, less adjustments as specified in the La Victoria Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Agreement”). Eloro owes one further payment of C$100,000, payable or on before July 17, 2017, at which time the San Markito mineral concession will be transferred by Tartisan to Eloro. 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 October 17, 2016, and with limited transferability for a period of four and one half years, all as detailed in the August 5, 2016 and October 17, 2016 new releases.
