Letter of Intent

Chesstown Capital Inc. ("Chesstown") (TSX VENTURE:CHC.H) is pleased to announce that on December 10th, 20 10, it entered into an arm's length and non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") with Apex Royalty Corporation ("Apex") pursuant to which Chesstown will, subject to a number of conditions, acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Apex.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, TSXV acceptance and if applicable pursuant to TSXV requirements, majority of the minority shareholder approval. Where applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
