Companies already exploring lithium-cesium-tantalum (“LCT”) pegmatites in the Cadillac-Pontiac Camp include Siona Mining, Vision Lithium, Brunswick Exploration, Winsome Resources and High Tide Resources. First Green is located to the west and north of Sayona Mining’s Tanseem project.
Several pegmatite outcrops have been identified by historical government mapping, but there is no record of pre-mining exploration on the property or any LCT analysis.
A network of logging roads and proximity to the Malartic and Val-d’Or mining centers would allow for low-cost exploration work.
Madero intends to complete a high-definition airborne radiometric and magnetic survey along with an interpretive survey using high-definition lidar data to identify potential LCT pegmatite targets.
Pursuant to the agreement, the Company may acquire a 100% interest in the property for an aggregate cash payment of $165,000 and the issuance of an aggregate of 5,400,000 common shares of the Company over a period of three years.
In addition, the Company must spend a total of $1,000,000 in exploration expenses on or before the third anniversary date of the Agreement.
Independent Suppliers will retain 2.0% of net smelter royalties, of which the Company may purchase 0.5% for $1,000,000.
In addition, the company has agreed to make milestone payments of $500,000 and $1,000,000, respectively, upon the submission of a feasibility study and the commencement of commercial production.
Milestone payments may be made in cash or by issuing shares at the discretion of the Company, and will be considered an advance to the vendors that will be deducted from future royalty payments.
A discovery fee of $17,500 is paid to an independent party in connection with the settlement. The arrangement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
