NGEx Resources (TSX:NGQ) intends to spin out its wholly owned Filo del Sol property into a wholly owned subsidiary.
As quoted in the press release:

The Arrangement is designed to deliver greater value to shareholders by unlocking the value of the Filo del Sol Project and the Company believes that it will also minimize dilution of the Constellation Project. The Filo del Sol Project is a silver-copper-gold deposit that straddles the international border between San Juan Province, Argentina and Region III, Chile and is comprised of adjacent mineral titles in Chile and Argentina which are 100% controlled by the Company through direct ownership or option agreements.
Upon completion of the Arrangement, Filo Mining will hold a 100% interest in the Filo del Sol Project and focus on the advancement of this project. Over time it is expected that Filo Mining may add new exploration stage projects to its portfolio. NGEx will retain and focus on the advancement of its 60% owned Constellation Project. The Constellation Project is comprised of the Los Helados property in Chile, and the Josemaría property in Argentina. Los Helados is part of a joint venture in which the Company holds 60.72% and Pan Pacific Copper Co., Ltd. holds 39.28%, and Josemaría is part of a joint venture in which the Company holds 60% and Japan Oil, Gas, and Metals National Corporation holds 40%.

NGEx President and CEO, Wojtek Wodzicki, said:

For the last several years investors have understandably focused on the opportunity provided by the Constellation Project. The proposed spinout will allow NGEx to focus on further advancement of the Constellation Project and on continued efforts to lay the groundwork to enable development of this project. The Filo del Sol Project hosts a large current mineral resource which the Company believes may have exploration upside and an oxidized upper portion where future work will focus on defining the potential to heap leach this material. The creation of Filo Mining is expected to enhance shareholder value by bringing increased investor focus to the potential that we see at Filo del Sol.
