Vancouver, B.C., October 7, 2016. Centurion Minerals Ltd. (CTN: TSX-V) (“Centurion”, or the “Company”) announces it has arranged a one-year loan financing for up to $300,000 from arms’ length parties. Proceeds from this financing shall be used to assist the Company in advancing the Ana Sofia, Argentina, agri-gypsum pilot plant operation and for general corporate purposes. The pilot plant will test the efficiency of contract mining and marketable agri-gypsum materials.
In consideration for the loan, the Company has agreed to issue, an aggregate of up to 857,000 bonus common shares, or warrants (per the lenders preference) at a deemed price of $0.07 per share and pay interest of 1.5% per month. The transaction is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, and any shares issued will be subject to a four-month hold period. The Company contemplates that various exemptions will be utilized pursuant to this financing and it may rely upon the suitability advice exemption (B.C. Instrument 45-536) for a portion thereof. There is no material fact or material change that has not been generally disclosed.
The Ana Sofia project comprises two mining concessions totaling 50 hectares (ha) in size within a larger (approximately 500 ha) exploration permit area. Trenching and test pit sampling work completed by joint venture partner Demetra Minerals Inc. and Centurion identified multiple, high grade, near surface gypsum layers. Small scale producers located in the vicinity are currently extracting agricultural gypsum and selling to fertilizer distributors and farmers. Agricultural gypsum is a valuable plant nutrient and plays a vital role in maintaining soil structure and nutrient balance in South American soils, allowing greater crop yields.
Centurion Minerals Ltd. is a Canadian-based company with an international focus on the exploration and development of agri-mineral and precious mineral projects.
