Quadro Closes Option Agreement with Tru for Quadro’s Staghorn Project, Newfoundland
Vancouver, B.C., August 18, 2022. Quadro Resources Ltd. (“Quadro” or the “Company”) (TSXV: QRO, OTC Pink: QDROF, FRA: G4O2) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated June 16, 2022, Quadro has closed the definitive option agreement dated June 15, 2022 (the "Option Agreement") with TRU Precious Metals Corp. (“TRU”).
Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement, TRU has the option to acquire up to an aggregate 65% ownership in Quadro’s Staghorn Project (the “Staghorn Project”) located in central Newfoundland. The Staghorn Project is a large claim package of 133 claim units in eight mineral licenses covering 3,325 hectares with a 12 km strike length of the auriferous Cape Ray Fault Zone. The Staghorn Project is comprised of two distinct groups of licenses (see Figure 1) which are immediately within and/or adjacent to TRU’s flagship Golden Rose Project (“Golden Rose”).
TRU has issued 1,084,171 common shares to Quadro in respect of the first share issuance due under the Option Agreement. The deemed price of such issuance shares is approximately $0.092 per share, representing the volume-weighted average trading price of TRU’s common shares on the Exchange for the 20 previous consecutive trading days. The future obligations under the Option Agreement are outlined in Quadro’s news release of June 16, 2022.
All common shares issued pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws for a period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance. For further information regarding the Option Agreement and the Staghorn Project, see the Company's news release dated June 16, 2022.
From T. Barry Coughlan (CEO & President): “We are pleased that TRU has closed the Staghorn Option. TRU’s existing claim package of its Golden Rose Project is contiguous to the Staghorn claims and it is therefore a strategic exploration expansion for it to option Staghorn.”
