Dieppe, New Brunswick--(Newsfile Corp. - June 12, 2023) - Colibri Resource Corporation (TSXV: CBI) (OTC Pink: CRUCF) ("Colibri" or the "Company") is pleased to report that it has been informed by its joint venture partner Agnico Eagle Mining that the Pitaya Gold Project located in the Caborca Gold Belt has been sold to a third party.
Colibri signed an agreement with Agnico Eagle Mining in 2019 whereby it agreed to sell its proportional 23% interest in the non-core project to Agnico or another buyer for a minimum of $500,000 USD. In 2020, Colibri was advanced $300,000 USD from Agnico Eagle Mining which was secured by Colibri's ownership of the joint venture company.
Colibri will receive net proceeds of $500,000 USD from the sale less the outstanding loan principal and interest owed. Proceeds of the transaction will add non dilutive capital to the Company treasury and also improve the Company balance sheet by zeroing out the corresponding debt liability.
The Pitaya Gold Project is located immediately east of Fresnillo plc's Tajitos gold project (indicated and inferred resource of 1.1 million ounces of gold) and is approximately 17 km south of Colibri's EP Gold Project. The EP Project shares similar types of mineralization, alteration, and geology to the Pitaya as well as other known regional gold deposits/mines such as Noche Buena (8km SW of EP), La Herradura (25km west of EP), El Chanate (62km SE of EP), and La Choya (31km NNW of EP). The highly prospective EP Project is comprised of 4,766 hectares, is one of only a few significant sized claim sets not owned by Fresnillo who holds in excess of 200,000 hectares in the district.
