Vancouver, BC – TheNewswire – October 13th, 2020 – Fidelity Minerals Corp. (TSXV:FMN) (FSE:S5GM) (SSE:MNYC) ("Fidelity Minerals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce revised payment terms in relation to the sale of its Cerro Dorado gold plant. Further to the US$1.43 million sale agreement announced on October 1, 2019 total payments made by the Purchaser have totalled US$500,000, meeting the conditions of the sale through to March, 2020. As a result of COVID-19 related regulatory delays and disruptions the Company has been working with the Purchaser to negotiate amended payment terms for the remaining US$930,000. On October 9, 2020, the Company executed an addendum to the original sale purchase agreement, with a revised payment schedule.
The revised payment terms for the outstanding balance, is outlined below:
– US$100,000 on October 10, 2020
– US$100,000 on November 25, 2020
– US$100,000 on January 25, 2021
– US$310,000 on April 25, 2021
– US$320,000 on July 24, 2021
– US$930,000 TOTAL
Following execution of the addendum, the payment scheduled for October 10th has been received. Importantly, the revised terms require accelerated payments to be made to the Company, under certain conditions.
As outlined in the original sale purchase agreement, in the event the Purchaser has missed a payment and this has not been remedied within 15 days, the ultimate transfer of Cerro Dorado SAC to the Purchaser will not complete and ownership of the mill complex, mine and concessions including all improvements and on-property assets will remain with Fidelity Minerals. The executed addendum also incorporates certain financial assurances, and the requirement to provide the Company with regular updates.
Director & CEO of Fidelity Minerals, Mr. Ian Graham commented: "The recently agreed, revised payment terms for Cerro Dorado provide the Company with increased confidence that the sale transaction will now complete. We are pleased to have been able to work closely with the Purchaser, to negotiate a mutually agreeable solution, to enable the timely recommissioning of Cerro Dorado, currently scheduled before the end of CY2020. In the interim, we are focused on our active exploration programmes, particularly i) Greater Las Huaquillas, where we are approaching the completion of the reinterpretation of a historical geophysical survey, and ii) Las Brujas, where have a field crew on site, performing extensive sampling and mapping. We look forward to providing a further update on these activities shortly."
