EHR Resources commences next stage of exploration at La Victoria
EHR Resources (ASX:EHX) has initiated the next phase of its exploration programme at the La Victoria Gold Project in cooperation with Eloro Resources Limited (TSX-V:ELO).
EHX has indicated that exploratory drilling will be a key focus moving forward at the site, which is located in the north-central mineral belt of Peru.
The company formally notified Eloro that it would proceed with the stage two earn-in period to acquire an additional 15% of the project, after mutually agreeing to restructure stage 2 farm-in arrangements in January this year.
It should be noted, however, that this is an early stage resources company and success is no guarantee. Investors should seek professional financial advice before making an investment.
The company currently holds a 10% interest in La Victoria and is earning up to a 25% interest in the project.
Under the new agreement, EHX will:
- Purchase an initial 8% in stage 2A via CA$1.6 million on or before June 30, 2018.
- Following the completion of stage 2A, EHX will have ten business days to notify Eloro that it will exercise its option to proceed with the stage 2B earn-in phase;
- Whereby EHX would acquire a further 7% interest by expending an additional CA$1.4 million on or before December 31 2018
At the end of either the stage 2A purchase period or stage 2B earn-in period, a joint venture would be completed between Eloro and EHX with Eloro becoming the project manager.
