Panoro Minerals : Announces Receipt of Early Deposit Payment from Wheaton Precious Metals for the Cotabambas Project, Peru and Issuance of Common Shares

09/24/2020 | 10:24am EST

VANCOUVER - Panoro Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: PML, Lima: PML, Frankfurt: PZM) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Panoro Trading (Cayman) Ltd. ('Panoro' or the 'Company') are pleased to announce that they have received the eleventh Early Deposit payment of US$750,000 as part of the Precious Metals Purchase Agreement (the 'Cotabambas Early Deposit Agreement') with Wheaton Precious Metals International Ltd. ('WPMI'), a wholly owned subsidiary of Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. (TSX: WPM) (NYSE: WPM), in respect of the Cotabambas project located in Peru.

The principal terms of the Cotabambas Early Deposit Agreement are as described in the Company's press release on March 21, 2016, whereby WPMI will pay Panoro upfront cash payments totalling US$140 million for 25% of the payable gold production and 100% of the payable silver production from the Company's Cotabambas Project in Peru. In addition, WPMI will make production payments to Panoro of the lesser of the market price and US$450 per payable ounce of gold and US$5.90 per payable ounce of silver delivered to WPMI over the life of the Cotabambas Project.

Panoro is entitled to receive US$14 million spread over a period of up to 9 years as an early deposit with payments to be used to fund corporate expenses related to the Cotabambas Project. The balance of the US$126 million, should WPMI elect to proceed with the Cotabambas Early Deposit Agreement, is payable in instalments during construction of the Cotabambas Project.

Together with this payment, the total advanced to date is US$10.0 million, including the accelerated tranche of US$2.0 million received in December 2016.

Issuance of common shares

The Company also announces that, pursuant to the amended employment agreement ('Amendment Agreement') between the Company and the Company's Chief Executive Officer, which defines a portion of his remuneration to be satisfied by the issuance of common shares of the Company on a quarterly basis, until December 31, 2020. Pursuant to the terms of the Amendment Agreement, 132,133 common shares will be issued at a deemed price of $0.133, in consideration of certain services provided to the Company for the quarterly period from June 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020, using the volume weighted average closing price of the Company's shares for each of the trading days in the three month period immediately preceding the end of each such quarterly period. The shares are subject to a four-month hold period and may not be traded until January 19, 2021. The deemed price of the common shares to be issued for future quarterly periods will be determined after the end of each quarterly period, subject to Exchange approval, as such services are provided to the Company, and will also be subject to a four-month hold period.

About Panoro

Panoro is a uniquely positioned Peru focused copper exploration and development company. The Company is advancing its flagship project, Cotabambas Copper-Gold-Silver Project and its Antilla Copper-Molybdenum Projects located in the strategically important area of southern Peru.

Panoro has completed strategic partnerships at four of its projects: 1. Precious Metals Purchase Agreement with Wheaton Precious Metals at the Cotabambas Project; 2.	Joint Venture with JOGMEC at the Humamantata Project; 3.	Sale to Hudbay Minerals of the Kusiorcco Project for cash and NSR royalty and 4. Sale to Mintania of the Cochasayhuas Project for cash and NSR royalty.

These partnerships would provide, if all received, US$ 15.5 million of funding to Panoro from 2020 to 2024, not including the potential NSR royalties from the Kusiorcco and Cochasayhuas Projects.

At the Cotabambas Project, the Company is focused on delineating the growth potential while optimizing the project economics. Exploration and step-out drilling from 2017, 2018 and 2019 has identified the potential for both oxide and sulphide resource growth.

The PEAs are considered preliminary in nature and include Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative to have the economic considerations applied that would enable classification as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the conclusions within the updated PEA will be realized. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.
