Kaizen Discovery Announces Sale of 100% Stake in Kerboule Gold Project in Burkina Faso

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 17, 2014) - B. Matthew Hornor, President and Chief Executive Officer of Kaizen Discovery Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KZD), announced today that Kaizen has entered into a share purchase agreement with Alecto Minerals Plc., providing for the sale to Alecto Minerals of Kaizen's Kerboulé gold project in Burkina Faso.

As consideration for the sale of its 100% interest in the Kerboulé gold project, which covers 399.5 square kilometres in two contiguous licences near Burkina Faso's northern border, Kaizen will receive 54,996,857 shares (worth approximately C$619,000) of Alecto Minerals. Alecto is an Africa-focused, gold and base metals exploration company headquartered in London, UK, and listed on the AIM stock exchange.

The agreement also provides that Alecto will issue to Kaizen a further US$1.5 million in Alecto shares or cash (at Alecto's election), if any of the following occur:

  • Alecto announces a JORC Inferred Resource or an equivalent resource estimate of a minimum of one million ounces of gold at a minimum cut-off of 0.5 grams per tonne (g/t) gold at Kerboulé; or
  • Alecto announces a JORC Proven Reserve or an equivalent resource estimate of a minimum of 250,000 ounces of gold at a minimum cut-off of 0.5 g/t gold at Kerboulé; or
  • a minimum of 75,000 ounces of gold are produced from the Kerboulé Project.

"Kaizen's divestiture of the Kerboulé gold project is aligned with its strategy to build a portfolio of highly prospective base-metal projects within the Pacific Rim," Mr. Hornor said.
