Mr. Ray Paquette report that pursuant to a submission approved by the Exchange March 31, 2008 – SUBMISSION NO. 134649 – the Exchange accepted for filing documentation in connection with an Option Agreement dated February 27, 2008 pursuant to which San Bernardo granted to Canmin (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Mining) the option to acquire a 100% interest in the Raquel 3 Mining Concession located in Sonora, Mexico. The aggregate consideration was $75,000 cash, the issuance of 2,500,000 common shares and work commitments of $1,250,000 over a five year period.
The parties have now agreed to convert the option agreement to an outright purchase agreement whereby San Bernardo will sell, transfer and assign absolutely to Canmin a 100% interest in the Concession and 1% of the 2% royalty over the Concession also held by San Bernardo.
Consideration for the purchase is the issuance by Canadian Mining on behalf of Canmin, its subsidiary, of 1,000,000 shares of its capital within five (5) business days of the date that the Purchase Agreement is accepted for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.
A term of the purchase agreement is that neither Canmin nor Canadian Mining shall have any further obligations to make cash payments, share issuances or incur work expenditures as contemplated in the Option Agreement. Additionally, San Bernardo is granted the buy-back option to re-purchase the 1% net smelter return transferred to Canmin for a price of $6,000 exercisable within a period of six months from the date of the Purchase Agreement (December 4, 2008).
The Purchase Agreement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Canadian Mining is a diverse company holding excellent prospects in both precious metals and industrial minerals.
