VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 30, 2017) - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CN) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a $500,000 private placement financing with Sandstorm Gold Ltd. ("Sandstorm"). Condor is also pleased to announce it has reached agreement with Sandstorm to grant royalties on six projects, sell a partial interest in two of their existing royalty streams, and assign royalty buy-back rights on two of their projects to Sandstorm (the "Royalty Sale") in consideration of the payment of $500,000. Closing is subject to regulatory approval, and is anticipated to occur within five business days.
The private placement will consist of 6,666,667 units at $0.075, with each unit consisting of one common share and one warrant. Each warrant will be exercisable at $0.15 into one common share for a period of five years. No commissions or finder's fees are payable on the private placement. On closing Sandstorm will own approximately 6.8% of Condor's issued capital.
The package of assets in the Royalty Sale includes the grant of a 0.5% NSR on Condor's Pucamayo, San Martin, Quriurqu, Humaya, Quilisane, and Huiñac Punta projects, the sale of 50% of Condor's production royalties on the Chavin and Lucero projects, and the assignment of the royalty buyback rights on the Ocros concessions, and the Pucamayo 14 concession (in both cases, a 1% NSR).
Proceeds from the private placement and the Royalty Sale will be used for exploration and general corporate purposes.
