VANCOUVER, BC, DECEMBER 14, 2020 – GMV Minerals Inc. (the “Company” or “GMV”) (TSX-V: GMV) (OTCQB: “GMVMF”) announces that in 2014 its wholly owned subsidiary acquired 100% of the Mining Property Lease ( “Mining Property Lease” or “Lease”) of Norman A. Pearson in a gold property consisting of unpatented mining claims (“Claims”) located in Arizona (the “Mexican Hat Property”) pursuant to the terms of a mining property lease assignment agreement dated as of May 14, 2014 among the Company, Norman A. Pearson, and Manuel R. Hernandez. Subsequent to the passing of Mr. Hernandez in 2019, the Claims and Lease were transferred and assigned to the Hernandez Family Trust (“Hernandez Trust”).
Pursuant to an Option to Purchase Agreement (Unpatented Mining Claims) dated effective as of December 14, 2020, the Hernandez Trust has now granted GMV’s subsidiary an exclusive initial five (5) year option (“Option”) to purchase the Claims that are subject to the Lease by making certain quarterly option payments to Hernandez Trust.
The Option may be extended for an additional three (3) years at GMV’s election by making an additional option extension payment to Hernandez Trust. In the event that GMV elects to exercise the Option and purchase the Claims during the term of the Option, GMV will continue to be obligated to grant Hernandez Trust a net smelter return royalty (NSR Royalty) of 3% in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lease. The NSR Royalty is subject to a buy-back right pursuant to which 1.5% of the NSR Royalty can be purchased by GMV in consideration of US$1,500,000.
