Payments of $12,500 are due to the rights holder in the first and second year. Upon exercise of the option and transfer of the rights to the Company, the rights holder will retain a 0.25% net smelter royalty.The NW Extension Project will give the Company the opportunity to initiate exploration in the attractive greenstone belt of Suriname, particularly within the Northern Greenstone Belt that is host to the Rosebel and Merian gold mines. Pending the lifting of travel restrictions in Suriname because of the COVID-19 pandemic, an initial exploration program is being planned that may include the compilation of available historical data, commencement of field mapping, and the execution of geochemical and geophysical surveys in high priority areas.
