Chilean Metals (TSXV:CMX), (OTC:CMETF), (SSE:CMX), (MILA:CMX) has terminated the previously announced term sheet with ASX and AIM-listed Aura Energy Limited.
Chilean Metals Inc. (“Chilean Metals,” “CMX” or the “Company”) (TSXV:CMX), (OTC:CMETF), (SSE:CMX), (MILA:CMX) has terminated the previously announced term sheet with ASX and AIM-listed Aura Energy Limited for its gold, base and battery metal tenements in Mauritania.
“It became rather complicated for regulatory reasons for Chilean to pursue its original plan. It would have necessitated the deal being deemed a Fundamental Transaction to Chilean and that would have made it very difficult to meet our announced timelines to close this deal. It also would have stopped progress on Chilean’s core projects in Chile. As a result, we have agreed with Aura to terminate the transaction commented Chilean CEO Terry Lynch.”
The Chilean board has been informed a private company controlled by Mr. Lynch has agreed to acquire the 50% interest in Tritis Gold for similar terms and the independent directors did not object to the transactions. Chilean Metals has no interest or agreement with the private company.
Chilean expects with this announcement that the Company stock which has been halted will resume trading in the next few days.
