VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2021 / Tier One Silver ("Tier One" or the "Company") announces that it has terminated a 2016 option agreement in respect of the shares of a private company which owns two mineral concessions within a larger secondary project area known as Huilacollo, located in southern Peru.
Tier One retains a strong land position within the Huilacollo area, including 100% ownership of the Tacora, Tacora Sur and Andamarca concessions (subject to a customary Supreme Decree dispensation for Border Zone projects) (Figure 1). These concessions will now be referred to as the Corisur claims. Although the termination relieves the Company of certain option payment and work expenditure obligations related to the two surrendered concessions, Tier One still maintains the surface rights agreement, which was prepaid and expires in 2024.
A Message from Peter Dembicki, CEO & Director:
"Huilacollo was a non-core asset for Tier One Silver, however the surrounding Corisur concessions we are retaining are key to the future expansion of the project and have a nominal cost to maintain. Releasing the other two concessions frees up resources for the Company to focus on the flagship Curibaya silver-gold project, where it is anticipating its inaugural drilling to commence in May."
