CanAlaska Sells Zeballos Gold Project
TSX VENTURE: CVV
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 1, 2019) - CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: CVV) (OTCQB: CVVUF) (Frankfurt: DH7N) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is pleased to report the agreement for the sale of the Zeballos Gold project to Privateer Gold Ltd., a private BC corporation.
The cash sale agreement is for $50,000 on signing and $200,000 upon transfer of the Crown Grant titles on or before May 31, 2019. CanAlaska will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty over the property, 1/2 of which may be purchased by the buyer prior to production for $500,000.
CanAlaska acquired the Crown Grants comprising the Zeballos project in 1988, and completed one program of drilling, which showed significant new gold intersections. Since 1990 the project has seen limited activity, but has been maintained by CanAlaska. In December 2018, CanAlaska obtained a Court Order to secure 100% title to the property, which was necessary because of the dissolution of its original joint venture partner.
CanAlaska's President, Peter Dasler comments, "We are very pleased to see the amount of work that Privateer Gold Ltd. has completed on its nearby landholdings and believe that the consolidation of properties in this very interesting gold camp, and this sale, will provide CanAlaska with its best long term value. The sale will further allow us to focus our exploration efforts to significantly extend the West McArthur uranium project discoveries in Saskatchewan."
