Darnley Bay signs option to purchase half of Pine Point royalty

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 27, 2017) - Darnley Bay Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:DBL) (the "Company" or "Darnley Bay") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option with Karst Investments LLC ("Karst") to purchase a 50% undivided interest in the 3% (three percent) net smelter return royalty that Karst holds on Darnley Bay's Pine Point lead-zinc project near Hay River in the Northwest Territories.

"This purchase will further enhance the economics of the already robust Pine Point project," says Jamie Levy, President and CEO of the Company. "Importantly, for a developing company, the majority of the purchase price is not due until the project is in commercial production."

The terms of the agreement include the payment of US$75,000 on signing of the agreement together with the issuance of 1,000,000 shares of Darnley Bay to Karst. In order to maintain the option, Darnley Bay will be required to make prepayments of US$75,000 on each anniversary of the signing of the agreement, until commercial production is achieved. Upon commercial production, Darnley Bay can exercise its option by paying Karst US$3,000,000, minus all prepayments.
