Vena Resources Inc. said Oct. 5 that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire the Bongará and the Charlotte Bongará zinc projects in Peru.
The company agreed to make payments totaling US$835,000 in cash or shares over a three-year period for Bongará, of which it has already paid US$65,000 in cash.
Additionally, Vena agreed to issue 346,815 shares and US$595,000 in cash or shares over the same period for Charlotte Bongará, of which the company has already paid US$10,000 in cash and agreed to issue 229,250 shares.
Both properties are subject to modest advance royalty payments a year after purchase, and a 2% net smelter return royalty on production.
In July, Vena inked binding letters of intent with two privately held Peruvian companies to acquire and jointly consolidate the projects.
