MONTREAL, June 19, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - MONARCH GOLD CORPORATION ("Monarch" or the "Corporation") (TSX: MQR) (OTCMKTS: MRQRF) (FRANKFURT: MR7) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Louvem Mines Inc. ("Louvem") has sold a 2% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty on certain claims of the Chimo Mine property to Cartier Resources Inc. ("Cartier") (TSXV: ECR) in consideration of a cash payment of $350,000. Monarch acquired Louvem as part of the acquisition of Richmont Mines' Quebec assets in October 2017.

"The funds will be allocated to the development of our priority projects in Abitibi. Furthermore, we retain a portfolio of NSR royalties ranging from 0.50% to 2.50% on the Chalice Gold Mines property, which surrounds the Chimo Mine property."
