(the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE:LECR) (CNSX:LECR.CN) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated March 30, 2020, it has entered into an option agreement (the “Option Agreement”) dated April 22, 2020 with Nexus Gold Corp.

In order to exercise the option, Leocor must: (1) make cash payments to Nexus of CDN$1,250,000 over four years, with the first CDN$100,000 due on the date the TSXV approves the Option Agreement; and (2) incur work expenditures of CDN$1,500,000 over five years. The Dorset Project is subject to a 2% net smelter returns royalty on commercial production from the Dorset Project in favour of United Gold Inc. and Margaret Duffit, 50% of which may be purchased at any time for a cash payment of $1,000,000.
Alex Klenman is a director and senior officer of both the Company and Nexus, however the Option Agreement is not considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. However, since the Company and Nexus are considered to be “non-arms’ length parties” under TSXV policies, the Option Agreement is subject to review and approval of the TSXV.
