The parties are required to conclude definitive transaction agreements incorporating the terms and conditions of the letter agreement and such other terms as would be found in a transaction of this nature on or before 31 January 2013.

Isibaya has three Project areas:

1. Uitvalgrond PGE-Chromite Project

This project covers part of the Eastern limb of the BushveldComplex near Lydenburg situated 250 km north-east of Johannesburg covering both the north and south strike extensions of the Everest South (Chromite/Platinum) mine operated by Aquarius Platinum (AQP-ASX). Uitvalgrond has never been drilled and first pass drilling will target both PGE and Chromite minerals associated with the Merensky, UG2 and other Critical Zone Reefs. The Company will be in a position to commence drilling within 30 days after closing.

2. Sondzela Gold & Base Metal Project

Situated in the Barberton Greenstone belt, this project covers a number of prospects including the historic:

  • Three Sisters historic Gold mine which extends underground for over 1km and down to 15 levels with extensive remnant gold mineralization;
  • The historic Bien Venue former Anglo American Volcanic Hosted Massive Sulphide (VHMS) prospect with potential for gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc;
  • The historic Figaro Gold Mine with an anomaly extending over 3km strike length and 700m wide with potential to host gold, zinc, lead, copper and silver.

3. Steinkopf Uranium Project

This project is situated in the Northern Cape region of South Africa. The target area is immediately adjacent to the historical Anglo American Henkries uranium deposit and is the least explored of the acquired package but represents a project area with high potential based on its proximity to known uranium mineralisation.

Rock and Stock is a Geological Consulting firm who have worked extensively in the Bushveld as well as gold and base metal projects in the region and they will oversee the exploration activity adding their vast experience to the exploration effort.

Harold Smith said, "The Isibaya acquisition represents a significant step for the Company. The quality of the assets and the ability to drill untested targets either side of the Everest South Chrome/PGE deposit is very attractive to the Company. Joshua and his team will add significant horse power to the Company and its ability to deliver planned work programs. Coupled with the excellent infrastructure and mining culture of South Africa we see this project developing over the next year into a substantial asset."
