ROUYN-NORANDA, Quebec, July 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (GMX – Toronto Stock Exchange, G1MN – Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Berlin, Munich, Tradegate, Lang & Schwarz Stock Exchanges and GLBXF – OTCQX International in the US) is pleased to inform shareholders that is has sold 91 claims totaling 4,960 hectares comprising of the Rosario, Lac Testard Ouest, Pyrox, Lac De Maurès Est, Claudette Zone, Boulder Lake, Boulder Gold, and Lac Chix properties located approximately 80 km north of Chibougamau, Quebec to Troilus Gold Corp.. The claims cover a number of copper and gold showings, geophysical anomalies and structures and horizons worthy of more detailed work.
In exchange for 100% interest in the claims, Troilus Gold Corp. (TLG-TSX) has paid Globex 350,000 Troilus common shares and granted Globex a 2% Gross Metal Royalty, 1% of which may be purchased at any time for $1,000,0000.
Troilus Gold has been consolidating a large land package south and southeast of the Troilus Mine. Globex’s claims fill gaps within their large land package.
Shareholders should note that the addition of these 8 royalties to Globex’s royalty portfolio brings the royalty total up to 62 ranging from the producing Mid-Tennessee zinc mines, advanced Fayolle (Au), Rocmec1 (Au), Bell Mountain (Au, Ag) and Authier (Li) royalties and numerous others in various stages of exploration. 54 of Globex’s 190 projects have historical or Ni 43-101 resources and 40 have had historical mining undertaken on them. Our assets are focused in eastern Canada, with 3 assets in the US and one in Saxony Germany currently being drilled by Excellon Resources.
