TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2021 / Rogue Resources Inc. (TSXV:RRS) ("Rogue" or the "Company") is pleased to announce continued progress at Rogue Stone with 2,421 tons sold in November and 2,394 tons sold in December with an average realized price per ton of $72 for the final two months of 2020. In total, Rogue Stone has now sold more than 20,000 tons, realizing more than $1.5M.
"We are pleased with the performance to date from Rogue Stone. We continue to hit the numbers in our acquisition model and safely produce great product for our customers," said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue. "We have also made some interesting changes across the portfolio to start things into motion and unlock additional value. We look forward to discussing these items in more detail on tomorrow's call."
New Nickel subsidiary
As highlighted during Rogue's October Investor Call, the strengthened nickel price market has led to increased demand for potential nickel investment stories. Rogue owns the Langmuir Project, which has a 15M pound, high-grade nickel Resource 25 km southeast of Timmins, Ontario. Langmuir is 7 km by road from the Redstone Mill which is owned by Northern Sun Mining Corp. The Redstone Mill has a permitted capacity of 2000 tonnes/day. Rogue plans to create a new wholly owned subsidiary to facilitate potential strategic moves.
Amendments to the Snow White Project payment terms
Rogue is pleased to report that it has entered into an agreement to further amend the payment terms (the "New Amendments") for the Company's Snow White quartz project, located near Massey, Ontario, Canada ("Snow White" or the "Project"). Rogue acquired the Project in December 2017 from a Sudbury-based prospector (see press releases dated October 20, 2017 and December 14, 2017) and have amended terms payable to the Option Holders since (see press releases dated June 18, 2018 and February 21, 2020). Included in the New Terms, Rogue amended a December 2020 payment of $120,000 to become a payment of $10,000 and 200,000 shares. In addition, the annual $80,000 cash payments due each December in each of the following two years have been amended to become annual deliveries of shares of the Company with a worth of $16,000. The number of shares to be granted will be calculated by the ten-day volume-weighted average price each December. Finally, the New Amendments adjusted the production royalty from $1 per tonne on the first 500K tonnes of production to $3/ tonne of the first 100K tonnes of production and $1/ tonne of the next 200K tonnes. All other terms of the Agreement remain unchanged.
Corporate Update Conference Call
These developments will be discussed in greater detail on a conference call with management scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday January 12, 2021, at noon Eastern (9am Pacific, 6pm in Western Europe). Rogue CEO Sean Samson and VP, Technical Paul Davis will give a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Interested investors can forward questions in advance to [email protected].
