Rockcliff Metals Corporation (CSE: RCLF) (OTCQB: RKCLF)  is pleased to announce the closing of the sale of its 100% owned subsidiary, Goldpath Corporation, to Kinross Gold Corporation. The purchase price includes cash proceeds of $3 million and Net Smelter Return royalties on three of the Goldpath properties. Kinross has acquired the shares of Goldpath through a subsidiary.

 

The consideration to be paid by Kinross to Rockcliff consists of the following:

  • $3,000,000 cash on closing.
  • NSRs on the following properties:
    • Ber Property – 2.0% NSR. Kinross has the right to purchase from Rockcliff up to a 1.0% NSR in 0.5% increments at a cost of $500,000 per increment for an aggregate purchase price of $1,000,000;
    • Dick Stone North Property – 2.0% NSR. Kinross has the right to purchase from Rockcliff up to a 1.0% NSR in 0.5% increments at a cost of $500,000 per increment for an aggregate purchase price of $1,000,000; and

The cash proceeds from the sale of this non-core asset will assist Rockcliff as it continues to advance its project development strategy.
