Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR) ("Berkwood" or the "Company") announces that it has signed an option agreement with Westhaven Ventures Ltd. (TSX-V:WHN) under which Westhaven can acquire a 70% interest in Berkwood's Prospect Valley Property located near the town of Merritt, British Columbia.
Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Westhaven pays Berkwood C$20,000 on signing. On or before November 25, 2015, Westhaven may then exercise the option by making a second and final payment to Berkwood of C$80,000 plus 500,000 Westhaven shares which shall have a hold period pursuant to securities legislation and TSX.V rules and policies. In addition Berkwood cannot sell the 500,000 Westhaven shares for 5 years after the signing of the agreement or until 5,000 tonnes of rock are mined from the property, whichever is sooner. Westhaven also has a right of first offer for Berkwood's remaining interest in the property should Berkwood decide to divest it in the future. No finder's fees are payable with respect to this transaction. The agreement is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
George Gorzynski, CEO and Director of Berkwood stated: "The cash received under this agreement will allow Berkwood to address some critical and immediate financial obligations of the Company and allow the Company to begin moving forward. As the first step in going forward, Berkwood will continue to advance the Company exploration projects including field work on its Lac Gueret Extensions Graphite Project in Quebec. This work is designed to finalize drill targets on two large and strongly defined geophysical conductors with similarities to those associated with high grade graphite mineralization located on the nearby Mason Graphite deposits."
