Pursuant to the offer, Gold Fields can earn a 51% interest in the Woodjam South Property in consideration for expending US$7 million on exploration over 42 months and the purchase of a total of C$500,000 of common shares of the WJV partners, which will be divided relative to their interests.

A draft agreement is expected shortly; its terms will be released upon signing.

President of Fjordland, Tom Schroeter comments:

“The earn-in proposal for the WJV’s Woodjam South Property by a major international mining company and the subsequent notice to exercise its right of first refusal by Gold Fields represents another important step in the WJV’s objective of advancing the entire Woodjam property without significant equity dilution.”
