Sabre Gold Mines Corp. (TSX: SGLD) (OTCQB: SGLDF) announces the sale of the 1% net smelter returns royalty it holds on the Kerr-Addison Mine claims owned by Gold Candle Ltd. for cash proceeds of US$7 million. In connection with the sale, the Company terminated the previously announced proposed sale of the GC Royalty (October 24, 2022) and will pay the agreed upon break fee of US$500,000.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of this non-core asset to improve the viability of our key assets. Accordingly, the Company will buy back two thirds of the 4.5% gross production royalty on the Company’s Copperstone Mine, settle US$2 million of the Company’s outstanding debt and add the remaining cash balance to the Company’s treasury.
“This cash sale allows the Company to achieve its stated objectives of improving our balance sheet while also improving the projected economics of the Copperstone Mine,” said CEO and President Andrew Elinesky, “Along with our recently closed financing and the sale of another minor non-core asset we are in a much stronger position to accelerate the development of our fully permitted asset in Arizona.”
In addition, the Company anticipates that their current payable debt will be extended by 18 months from the current due date of December 31, 2023.
