The letter of intent is non-binding and subject to conditions, including completion of due diligence to IAMGOLD’s satisfaction, the negotiation and finalization of a satisfactory definitive agreement and the approval of the shareholders of Yorbeau which will be sought at a special meeting to be convened for such purposes.
Gérald Riverin, President of Yorbeau, stated: “Yorbeau is highly enthusiastic to partner with IAMGOLD, a major gold producer with ongoing mining operations in the vicinity of the Rouyn property. Signing the letter of intent marks a significant milestone for Yorbeau and the Rouyn project. We look forward to collaborating with IAMGOLD to finalize the definitive option agreement and advance the project with the intention of realizing value for all stakeholders.”

The Rouyn Property, wholly-owned by the Company, contains four known gold deposits in the 6-km-long Augmitto-Astoria corridor situated on the western portion of the property. Two of the four deposits, Astoria and Augmitto, have substantial underground infrastructure and have been the subject of Regulation 43-101 technical reports that include resource estimates.

The newly acquired base metal properties include the Scott Project, which bears important mineral resources (see the press release dated March 30, 2017) and on which a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment was recently completed.
