CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 10, 2015) - Iberian Minerals Ltd. (the "Company" or "Iberian") (TSX VENTURE:IML)(OTCQB:SLDRF) is pleased to announce the closing of the sale of its 100% interest in the Alberta-1 Project. The details of the definitive purchase and sale agreement with an arm's length third party were previously announced on March 2, 2015. The Company received final approval on the sale from the TSX Venture on July 9, 2015 and is pleased to report that it has received the final installment of EUR2,000,000 for a total cash price of EUR5,000,000., or approximately Cdn. $7,000,000.
