WHITE ROCK, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX:REN) (“RenGold”) is pleased to announce that Atala Resources Corporation, a Canadian private company ("Atala"), has signed a letter of intent (the “LOI”) to purchase AuEx Argentina S.A. (“AuEx”), a wholly owned subsidiary of RenGold in exchange for cash, stock and a net smelter royalty (“NSR”). On signing the definitive agreement Atala will issue RenGold 500,000 common shares and will pay C$20,000 cash. On completion of Atala raising C$1 million, RenGold will receive an additional C$30,000. With raising another C$1 million RenGold will receive another C$50,000. RenGold will retain a NSR on all properties of 4% minus any underlying NSR (including governmental and underlying ownerships) not to be less than 1% nor greater than 3%. The purchase of AuEx will include the Covadonga and El Meridiano properties currently subject to an earn-in agreement between Atala and RenGold.
Richard Bedell, President and CEO, comments: "Atala is a focused and savvy group whose management helped to lead the success in Argentina of Minera Andes Inc (subsequently merged into McEwan Mining Inc). They clearly understand the endowment and potential of Santa Cruz Province. This agreement allows Atala to grow these projects and for RenGold to retain an interest in this Province and focus more of its energy in Nevada."
