Australians drawn to Iroquois Falls for nickel – by Staff (Northern Ontario Business – April 18, 2019)

Perth explorer has high production hopes in expanding holdings in northeastern Ontario

A Sudbury junior miner has flipped a northeastern Ontario base metal property to an Australian exploration outfit.

Transition Metals announced April 15 that it has completed the sale of the Dundonald nickel-copper-near Iroquois Falls to Legendary Ore Mining. Legendary is a subsidiary of VaniCom of Perth, Western Australia. The two parties signed a binding letter of intent last August.

The terms of the sale involved an initial payment of $50,000 to Transition Metals at the signing the letter of intent followed by a second payment of $100,000 upon closing the definitive purchase agreement.

In addition, VaniCom will issue Transition Metals shares with a value of $350,000, plus Transition will receive a 2.5 per cent net smelter royalty on any future production from the property.

As part of the deal, Legendary must spend at least $750,000 on exploration and development on the property over a 36-month period or, at its option, Transition can buy back the property for $1.
