(“Canadian Gold”) to sell 34 of the Corporation’s mineral claims associated to its Robidoux Property located in Western Gaspé, Québec.

Rajesh Sharma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fancamp said, “The sale of the Robidoux mineral claims is part of Fancamp's strategic process to create value from its vast portfolio of mineral properties, by either optioning out, entering into joint venture or monetizing its assets, as in this case earning immediate cash while retaining future interests in the form of shares and royalty.”

The Transaction’s purchase price as listed in the Sale Agreement for the Robidoux Mining Claims package is set at $500,000, of which $50,000 is to be paid to Fancamp by Canadian Gold at the signing of the Sale Agreement, and CAD $50,000 is to be paid 180 days following the signature date.

Should Canadian Gold fail to complete an IPO within the IPO Deadline, the Sale Agreement shall be terminated and Fancamp shall have no further obligations to transfer the Mineral Claims to Canadian Gold.

As part of this Transaction, Fancamp will be entitled to a 2% Net Smelter Return in respect to products derived from the Robidoux Property in accordance with provisions of a royalty agreement to be entered into between the parties.
