VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 19, 2017) - Serengeti Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SIR)(FRANKFURT:34S) provides a corporate update on the progress of the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) currently underway on the Company's Kwanika project. The independent study is being carried out by Moose Mountain Technical Services based on a revised resource outlined in a recently filed 43-101 Technical Report completed by SRK Consulting of Vancouver, BC (see NR17-01, January 4th, 2017 for full details). The objective of the PEA is to identify the best development scenario to maximize the project's internal rate of return (IRR) and is scheduled for completion within the first quarter.
All of the work outlined above is being funded by Daewoo Minerals Canada, whereby Daewoo has earned a 5% project interest by paying Serengeti $400,000 and spending $800,000 on the project in 2016. Daewoo may earn an additional 30% interest in the project, by electing within 90 days of completion of the PEA, to fund an additional $7 million over the following two year period. Serengeti remains as project operator and is entitled to charge a 10% operator fee on expenditures beyond the initial $1.2 million. Serengeti is entitled to an NSR royalty if its project interest is diluted below 50% and also retains the right to enter into precious metal streaming transactions, subject to certain off-take rights to Daewoo (see NR16-03, April 6th, 2016 for full details).
