Divestment of non-core asset will streamline Eastern Metals’ asset portfolio, enabling it to focus on exploration of its high-potential Cobar and Arunta projects

Eastern Metals Ltd (ASX: EMS) (“Eastern Metals” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding Heads of Agreement (“HoA”) for the sale of the Thomson Project in New South Wales to Legacy Minerals Holdings Ltd (ASX: LGM, “Legacy Minerals”) for $200,000 in cash and a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”).


  • Eastern Metals has finalised a binding agreement to sell its Thomson Project in NSW to Legacy Minerals Holdings Ltd (ASX:LGM) for $200,000 in cash plus a 1.5% royalty.
  • The cash sale allows Eastern Metals to focus its funds and human resources on the exploration of the Cobar and Arunta Projects.
  • Approvals process is underway to drill newly identified high-priority targets at the Cobar Project in NSW, with work programs also progressing at the Arunta Project in the NT following the recent award of a co-funding grant from the NTGS1.

The sale will streamline Eastern Metals’ asset portfolio, enabling the Company to focus its funds and resources on the high-potential, advanced base metals Cobar Project in New South Wales and Arunta Project in the Northern Territory.

Eastern Metals’ Chief Executive Officer Ley Kingdom said: “The sale of the Thomson Project to Legacy Minerals represents a great outcome for Eastern Metals, providing the Company with an all- cash consideration of $200,000 plus a 1.5% NSR, while enabling us to prioritise our efforts on the more advanced assets within our portfolio.

“The prioritisation of time and funds is vital for successful exploration companies. With our prospective portfolio of tenements, we are constantly evaluating which projects have the best potential for exploration success and shareholder growth. In the near future, this includes continuing to progress Browns Reef and Home of Bullion through target generation and drilling. We wish Legacy Minerals all the best with the acquisition, which represents a complementary land position to their existing projects in NSW where they are actively exploring on a number of fronts.”

Joe Mazumdar: Silver and Rare Earths Stocks, Plus Low-risk Gold Exposure

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Joe Mazumdar, editor of Exploration Insights, explained how he's getting low-risk exposure to the gold sector as the metal's price continues to move.

Given that inflation remains an issue for miners, he's focusing on small gold royalty companies. "That's what I've been trying to do to invest in a rising gold price and some growth, but without the creep of costs," he said.

Mazumdar also discussed two recent site visits, one of which was to see AbraSilver Resource's (TSXV:ABRA,OTCQX:ABBRF) Diablillos silver-gold project in Argentina. He is optimistic about the country's recent change in government, which has made it a better environment for foreign direct investment in the mining sector.

Lobo Tiggre: Shopping for Silver Stocks, Watching "Powerful" Gold Mover

Lobo Tiggre, CEO of IndependentSpeculator.com, shared his updated thoughts on gold, silver and uranium.

When it comes to gold, he pointed to a "powerful mover" that he thinks could be in play — a change in global portfolio allocations to the yellow metal. Historically the allocation has been 2 percent, but more recently it's been 0.5 percent.

"I think that what we're seeing is that changing. And maybe it doesn't go back to 2 percent, but if it just goes back to 1 percent, that doubles the investment demand for gold from where we are now," he said.
