ArcWest Exploration Completes Sale of Huckleberry Property to Imperial Metals Corporation
Vancouver, July 29, 2021 - ArcWest Exploration Inc. (TSXV: AWX) ("ArcWest") is pleased to announce that Huckleberry Mines Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Imperial Metals Corporation, has purchased ArcWest's Huckleberry property, located 1.8 km from Imperial Metals' past producing Huckleberry East zone open pit mine, which is currently on care and maintenance status.
ArcWest's Huckleberry claims contain multiple porphyry Cu-Mo-Au targets as well as precious metal enriched massive sulfide occurrences that have yet to be explored beyond basic prospecting and sampling. The Huckleberry property was acquired by ArcWest through staking and is surrounded by tenures owned by Huckleberry Mines Ltd.
Under the terms of transaction set out in the agreement:
- Huckleberry Mines will acquire 100% of the Property;
- Huckleberry Mines will make a cash payment to ArcWest of CAD$50,000; and
- ArcWest will retain a 1.0% net smelter return royalty ("NSR") with no buydown provisions.
ArcWest President & CEO Tyler Ruks commented: "The Huckleberry transaction provides ArcWest with a royalty on a prospective land position in close proximity to Imperial Metal's past producing Huckleberry mine, which is host to significant copper-molybdenum resources. Imperial recently announced a jointly funded ZTEM airborne geophysical survey of the Huckleberry district with Surge Copper. In the event a discovery is made on ground covered by ArcWest's NSR, given the close proximity of mining infrastructure for a which a restart plan is currently being developed, there is potential for significant, near term wealth creation for ArcWest shareholders."
