Sanatana Resources. (TSXV: STA) ("Sanatana" or the "Company") has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with ArcWest Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AWX) ("ArcWest") to negotiate an earn-in and joint venture agreement on ArcWest's Oweegee Dome porphyry copper-gold (Cu-Au) project, located in BC's Golden Triangle. ArcWest's 100% owned Oweegee Dome project is located 45 km east of Seabridge Gold's KSM-Iron Cap porphyry Cu-Au deposits.
Mr. Peter Miles, CEO of Sanatana commented, "We are delighted to enter into this letter of intent with ArcWest. We look forward to working with Tyler Ruks and his team at ArcWest to explore the Oweegee Dome project, which is host to one of the largest underexplored porphyry Cu-Au systems in BC's Golden Triangle. This proposed transaction will leverage our experience in BC.'s Golden Triangle particularly because our Chairman, Ian Smith, led the team at bcMetals Corp. that engineered the Red Chris porphyry Cu-Au deposit for development, prior to being acquired by Imperial Metals Corp. Seventy percent of Red Chris was later purchased from Imperial by Newcrest Mining for US$804 million."
It is contemplated that the Company will be able to earn an initial 60% interest in the Oweegee Dome project by incurring assessment and exploration expenditures of $6,600,000 in stages over the period ending December 31, 2024 and making staged cash and share payments totalling $500,000 and 2,000,000 shares, respectively over the same period. Payments to ArcWest can be made in cash; Sanatana's common shares or a combination of 50% cash and 50% shares at ArcWest's election. It is contemplated that Sanatana will have the ability to earn an additional 20% interest, for an aggregate 80% interest, or form a joint venture.
The Company is negotiating a definitive agreement that will be subject to customary approvals including that of the TSX-Venture Exchange. There can be no assurance that a definitive agreement with ArcWest will be completed as proposed or at all.
