TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2021 / PJX Resources Inc. ("PJX")(TSXV:PJX.V) is pleased to announce the option of the historical Estella mine crown grants (the "Estella Property") from Imperial Metals Corporation ("Imperial"). The 14 Estella crown grants are encompassed by PJX's large Dewdney Trail Property (see map below). The property is road accessible and located approximately 30 km northeast of Cranbrook, British Columbia.

John Keating, President of PJX commented: "PJX's Dewdney Trail Property and the Estella Property have potential to host intrusive related gold and copper deposits as well as sedimentary hosted massive silver-lead-zinc mineralization similar to the historical Kootenay King mine located approximately 5 km to the south. The Estella crown grants have had no significant work or exploration since the late 1960's. Having access to the crown grants will allow PJX to complete mapping and geophysics across both the Estella claims and PJX's adjacent large land holdings this summer to define targets to drill."

Estella Option Terms

Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, PJX can earn a 100% interest in the Estella Property by making cash payments, or share equivalent payments, to Imperial totalling $250,000 over a 5 year period as follows:

  • $15,000 on signing the agreement; and
  • $20,000 on or before July 26, 2022; and
  • $25,000 on or before July 26, 2023; and
  • $30,000 on or before July 26, 2024; and
  • $35,000 on or before July 26, 2025; and
  • $125,000 on or before July 26, 2026

Upon exercise of the option by PJX, Imperial will retain a Net Smelter Return Royalty ("NSR") of 2% in respect of the Estella Property. PJX will have the right to buy back 50% of the NSR [being a 1% NSR] for $1,000,000, and the remaining 50% of the NSR [being a 1% NSR] for an additional $1,000,000.

PJX continues to advance gold and base metal targets toward the discovery stage on our properties through surface exploration as well as drilling.

We also continue to build strategic partnerships to advance assets including DLP Resource's option of our DD Property and an agreement with Osisko Gold Royalties that was finalized in early 2021, with Osisko paying $1 million for a O.5% NSR royalty interest in PJX's 4 gold properties (Gold Shear, Eddy, Zinger and Dewdney Trail), and purchasing an equity investment in PJX for an additional $1 million.

PJX has identified large target areas with gold, copper, zinc, lead, and silver mineralization across the Dewdney Trail Property to date. The Estella Property option will allow PJX to advance exploration with mapping, prospecting and airborne magnetotelluric and magnetic surveys across both properties to help define targets to drill.

Forest fires in British Columbia have not yet affected our exploration activities. We would like to thank our experienced consulting team of geologists, prospectors, geophysicists, geochemists and drillers for their devotion to advance our exploration targets and maintain safety for themselves and our communities by adhering to health and safety protocols.
