January 15, 2013 (Source: Marketwire) — Pan Global Resources Inc. (“Pan Global” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:PGZ) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with 298221 B.C. Ltd. (the “Vendor”) and its sole shareholder Mr. Petr Palkovsky to purchase 100% of the Vendor’s wholly-owned subsidiary Lithium Li Holdings Inc. (‘Lithium Li’). Lithium Li holds 15 exploration licenses in Serbia and Bosnia that have been subject to an Option Agreement with the Company (Figure 1). The proposed transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including TSXV approval.
Under the terms of the current Option Agreement, the Company can earn up to 80% in any three licences held by Lithium Li by funding the completion of a feasibility study (or spending a total of $20,000,000), and issuing a total of 1,125,000 shares and paying $500,000 cash. The other 12 licences remain with the Vendor.
Under the terms of the new LOI, PGZ will purchase Lithium Li and all its current 15 and any future licences for consideration of cash payments totalling CAD$5.8Million, and the issuance of a total of seven million shares to the Vendor over a period of four years (see below for details). Critical payments and share issuances are linked to performance milestones directly related to exploration results and the consequent ability to raise financing to fund continued exploration. No further payments relating to the Option Agreement will be made.
Julian Bavin, President and CEO of Pan Global stated: “We are extremely pleased to have signed this LOI which will provide the Company with 100% ownership of the 15 Lithium Li exploration licences where exploration results to date have already defined five very high priority licences, including the Valjevo licence in which drilling results to date have indicated an unusually extensive resource of borate mineralisation of significant grade and width. We are also very pleased to be welcoming Petr Palkovsky and his team from Lithium Li as part of Pan Global which will help focus our exploration efforts on prioritisation of the portfolio and increasing the value to our shareholders.”
Petr Palkovsky, owner of Lithium Li stated: “It gives me great pleasure to be merging Lithium Li into Pan Global Resources. This will enable sufficient exploration to be undertaken on the portfolio of 15 licences to ensure that the most highly prospective licences and mineral resources are advanced, while being firmly focused on shareholder returns.”
The terms of the LOI provide for the issuance of seven million Company shares, and the payment of CAD$ 5.8 million to the Vendor under the following conditions:
