Vancouver, British Columbia - September 12, 2017 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Westminster Resources Ltd. (TSXV: WMR) ("WMR" or the "Company") has entered into a binding Letter of Intent dated September 4, 2017 with Latin Resources Limited ("Latin") (ASX: LRS) to acquire a 100% interest in the Ilo Norte and Ilo Este copper projects, (the "Projects") located in southern Peru. Latin is at arms' length to the Company.
The Projects comprise a number of concessions totalling over 36,000 hectares located in the highly prospective coastal IOCG/Porphyry Copper belt of Southern Peru. Latin has carried out exploration drilling and has successfully demonstrated substantial upside for development of the Projects. Within 100 km of the Projects, the region is the source of around half of Peru's copper production (the world's third largest copper producing nation).
Upon completion of due diligence and receiving the necessary approvals, the acceptance for filing by the TSX-V and effecting the transfer of the Projects, the following terms and conditions will be met under a formal Sale Agreement to be completed between the Company and Latin:
Upon completion of the contemplated transaction, Latin Resources will be the largest shareholder of the Company, holding approximately 45% of the issued share capital on an undiluted basis. Shareholder approval for Latin Resources' control position in the Company will be sought at the Company's upcoming Annual General Meeting which will be scheduled this fall.
The Company will pay a finder's fees in connection with the introduction of Latin and the Projects to the Company, as permitted by TSXV policy.
Westminster will provide further details on the Projects and this transaction shortly.
