Abitibi Royalties Launches "The Royalty Search"

Val-d’Or, Québec, June 9th, 2015Abitibi Royalties Inc. (RZZ-TSX-V: “Abitibi Royalties” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the official launch of the Abitibi Royalties Search. “The Royalty Search” (www.abitibiroyalties.com) is an easy to use website that allows mining companies and prospectors a quick way of accessing capital in this difficult commodities market.

What We Are Offering: Abitibi Royalties is offering to pay, for a specified period of time, the claim fees/taxes related to:

  1. Existing mineral properties or
  2. Staking of new mineral properties  

In return for paying these fees, Abitibi Royalties would be granted a net smelter royalty (“NSR”) on the property. Many claim holders are having a difficult time paying the fees associated with their property and face losing the mineral claims or they do not have the capital needed to stake new properties.

What We Are Looking For: Our preference is for mineral properties that are in relatively close proximity to an operating mine (~50km or less) within the Americas. Our due diligence will focus on the geology and evidence of mineralization through previous exploration.

Why Partner With Us: Our due diligence process is VERY fast. We will try and deliver a Yes or No answer within 48 hours. No administrative holdups. You will be dealing with the decision makers directly. Abitibi Royalties has a strong balance sheet, no debt and is generating positive cash flow.

The Process: 

  1. Visit www.abitibiroyalties.com and click the “Royalties Search” button.
  2. Simply fill out the required fields that include basic information about the property.  The site allows you to upload files that will help us during the evaluation process. 
  3. Abitibi Royalties will try to deliver a Yes or No answer within 48 hours. If the answer is Yes, we will prepare a binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) that indicates Abitibi Royalties will pay the claim fees associated with your property for a period of time in exchange for an NSR. A formal agreement will follow that will be specific to the province/state where the property is located.  

“In order for Abitibi Royalties to compete within the royalty sector we need to think and act differently, using our small size as a competitive advantage. We are excited about this opportunity, which we don’t believe has been done before in the mining sector. We are looking forward to building numerous partnerships through The Royalty Search that we believe will be mutually beneficial,” stated Ian Ball, President.
