VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Aug 28, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — War Eagle Mining Company Inc. /quotes/zigman/5946920 CA:WAR -27.78% (“War Eagle” or the “Company”) reports that, on August 8, 2013 the Company’s BVI subsidiary, Tombstone Mining Inc. (“Tombstone BVI”), entered into a preliminary agreement with Contratista y Operaciones Mineras SA de CV (“COMSA”), a Mexican mining company, to sell all its shares of its Mexican subsidiary, Tombstone Exploration de Mexico SA de CV (“Tombstone Mexico”) to COMSA. Tombstone Mexico is the owner of the Tres Marias zinc-lead-germanium project in Chihuahua, Mexico. Total consideration for the purchase of Tombstone Mexico of US$2,500,000 cash will be satisfied by (i) US$50,000 payable on signing a definitive agreement with the balance in periodic payments over three years and (ii) a 2% net smelter return royalty to a maximum of a further US$2,500,000 with a possible increase to a maximum of up to US$3,300,000 depending on metal sales volumes and prices.
President and CEO of War Eagle, Thomas Atkins, commented on the sale of the Tres Marias property stating: “Tres Marias is a unique deposit in which exploration to date has defined a resource that is unlikely to be able to be developed as a stand-alone operation. 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 the mineral resource at Tres Marias to the mutual benefit of both COMSA and War Eagle.”
Completion of the transaction is subject to signing a definitive agreement, approval from the TSX Venture Exchange and approval of the Company’s shareholders
