Vancouver, British Columbia January 16, 2014 – War Eagle Mining Company Inc. (TSXV – WAR) (“War Eagle” or the “Company”) reports that it has completed the sale of the Tres Marias zinc-lead-germanium project in Chihuahua, Mexico to Contratista y Operaciones Mineras SA de CV (“COMSA”), a Mexican mining company. Total consideration for the sale was US$5,000,000 cash which will be satisfied by (i) US$65,000 cash received on closing with the balance of US$2,435,000 in fixed periodic cash payments over three years and (ii) a 2% net smelter return royalty to a maximum of a further US$2,500,000 with (iii) a possible increase in the royalty to a maximum of up to US$3,300,000 depending on metal sales volumes and prices.
President and CEO of War Eagle, Thomas R. Atkins, commented on the sale of the Tres Marias project, stating: “The transaction with COMSA enables the development of the mineral resource at Tres Marias such that shareholders of War Eagle can realize a return from the prior investment in the property. COMSA intends to mobilize mobile equipment that should enable the mining and processing of this small, but high grade zinc-lead germanium mineral resource at Tres Marias to the mutual benefit of both COMSA and War Eagle. Numerous permits are in place to facilitate rapid development and much of the mineral resource at Tres Marias is of such high grade that it can simply be mined and sent to a smelter.”
The sale of Tres Marias has received the approval of the shareholders of the Company and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Mr. Atkins will be attending the Cambridge House Vancouver Resource Investment Conference January 19-20, 2014, occupying booth #1811. He looks forward to meeting investors and discussing Company activities.
