Berkwood Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: BKR) ("Berkwood" or the "Company") announces that it has signed an agreement with Westhaven Ventures Ltd. (TSX-V:WHN) ("Westhaven") on the Prospect Valley Property located near the town of Merritt, British Columbia. Berkwood and Westhaven have been 30:70 joint venture partners on the property. Under this new agreement, Westhaven will acquire the remaining 30% interest in property from Berkwood by paying Berkwood C$10,000 on signing plus C$30,000 and 500,000 Westhaven shares within 2 days of TSX approval of the agreement. The 500,000 Westhaven shares 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. 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 is needed to address critical financial obligations of the Company. Berkwood also now holds one million Westhaven shares making it one of the largest shareholders in Westhaven, and it is through this shareholding that Berkwood may continue to benefit from advances on the Prospect Valley Property as well as Westhaven's other excellent projects. Berkwood's plans going forward will now focus on new acquisitions and new directions on which to build shareholder value."
About Berkwood Resources:
Berkwood holds an option to earn a 100%-interest in the 5,788ha Lac Guéret South Graphite Property, located in northeastern Quebec. The property borders the southern boundary of Mason Graphite's Lac Guéret Project which has a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate with measured & indicated mineral resources of 65.7 million tonnes grading 17.2% Cgr (including 9.7 million tonnes grading 31.2% Cgr)*. Berkwood also holds a 100% interest in the Lac Guéret East Graphite Property which is adjacent to the eastern boundary of Mason Graphite's Lac Guéret Property. Berkwood's Lac Guéret East and South Graphite Properties share a similar geological environment to Mason Graphite`s Lac Guéret Property including along strike stratigraphic units, structures and geophysical conductors. Berkwood's rational for exploring its Lac Guéret graphite projects is to find similar graphite mineralization to that of Mason Graphite.
