Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. granted Canex Energy Corp. an option to earn up to a 75% interest in the Olson gold property in Saskatchewan.
Under the agreement, Canex can earn the interest in two phases over four years by spending C$3 million on exploration, making cash payments of C$250,000 and issuing 1 million shares to Eagle Plains.
Canex can earn an initial 51% interest in the property by completing the cash payment, spending C$1.5 million on exploration and issuing 800,000 shares, in stages over a period between the execution of a letter of intent until the end of 2022, according to an Oct. 24 news release.
At this stage, Canex and Eagle Plains will negotiate and execute a joint venture agreement within 30 days to continue exploration, evaluation and development of the 3,800-hectare property together.
The company can then earn up to an additional 24% interest by spending another C$1.5 million on exploration and issuing 200,000 shares to Eagle Plains by the end of 2023.
Eagle Plains also recently granted 37 Capital Inc. an option, for an interest of up to 60% in the 4,734-hectare Acacia gold-silver property in British Columbia.
