Pilot Gold Inc. (TSX: PLG) (“Pilot Gold” or the “Company”) has signed and closed a definitive purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) to sell 100% of its Regent exploration property (“Regent”, or the “Property”) to Rawhide Mining LLC (“RMC”) for $3 million in cash.
Pilot Gold will retain a net profits royalty of 15% on the Property and is entitled to a sliding scale gold equivalent bonus payment (the “Gold Bonus”), each of which is payable in certain circumstances after RMC has achieved production at the Property.
"Regent’s divestiture allows the Company to add to its strong cash position while the royalty potentially offers exposure to production for Pilot Gold, as RMC intends to integrate Regent into its existing mining operations,” said Matt Lennox-King, President and CEO, Pilot Gold.
