VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 25, 2013) - Duncastle Gold Corp. ("Duncastle") (News - Market indicators)(FRANKFURT:5D3) has closed the sale of the historic Yankee-Dundee Mine to Armex Mining Corp. pursuant to an agreement announced on January 21, 2013. At closing Duncastle received a $50,000 advance royalty as the initial payment on a purchase price which may total about $4 million or more by way of cash and royalty payments depending on mine performance, commodity markets and other factors per the following schedule:

  • $50,000 advance royalty payments due on closing, on receipt of a notice of work (permit), and annually thereafter until production;

  • $250,000 cash payment on the commencement of production;

  • $250,000 cash payment on the anniversary of the commencement of production;

  • additional production payments totaling $1 million payable from 30 per cent of net revenues; and

  • a 2.5% net smelter royalty with buy-down at $1 million per 1%.

In addition to the above, Duncastle retains back-in rights pursuant to the agreement by which it can re-acquire the project in the event specific production milestones are not met.

The Yankee-Dundee project includes numerous past-producing, high-grade mines including the two largest mines in the Ymir camp, the Yankee Girl and the Ymir mines. The Ymir camp produced 883,000 tonnes of ore at an average grade of 10 g/t gold and 60 g/t silver for a gross total production value of over $500 million (current value), ranking it as the largest silver producing camp in the British Commonwealth for a period during the 1930s. Duncastle consolidated most of the Ymir camp and completed over 7,700 meters of drilling in 48 holes, identifying a high-grade extension of the Yankee Girl mine that is near existing mine workings. Duncastle personnel inspected some of the mine workings in 2006 and found them to be in very good condition. The Armex team is experienced in underground mine rehabilitation and development, and plans to use the historic workings as an inexpensive basis for exploration, expansion and mining activities.

Duncastle President Michael Rowley reported: "Armex Mining has done great work advancing the project in a challenging market. Their plans balance near-term production from less capital intensive operations before expanding into mining deeper underground as the project advances. Their team is well equipped to accomplish this with excellent experience in geology and mine development including environmental regulations and the financial markets. We look forward to seeing the historic mine return to production with benefit to both parties."
