Euromax Announces Closing of Royal Gold Transaction

Euromax Resources Ltd, ("Euromax" or the "Company"), - 3rd March 2015(TSX-­‐V: EOX OTCPK: EOXFF): together with its wholly-­‐owned subsidiaries Euromax Resources (Macedonia) UK Limited, Euromax Resources (Macedonia) Ltd and Euromax Resources DOO Skopje, is pleased to announce that further to its announcement of 21 October 2014 whereby they entered into a US$175 million Gold Purchase and Sale Agreement ("Agreement") with RGLD Gold AG and Royal Gold, Inc. (together, "Royal Gold"), they have entered into a First Amendment to the Gold Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "First Amendment") and closed the initial stage of the transaction allowing receipt of US$ 3.75 million as a portion of the initial payment of US$ 7.5 million to be made by Royal Gold on the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent to closing specified in the Agreement.

Following discussions between Euromax and Royal Gold, including consultation with their respective Macedonian legal advisors, Euromax and Royal Gold agreed to enter into the First Amendment to facilitate the closing of the gold streaming transaction and funding of US$ 3.75 million as a portion of the initial payment of US$ 7.5 million on satisfaction of such conditions.

The remaining US$ 3.75 million of the US$ 7.5 million initial payment will be funded on  satisfaction  of  the remaining conditions precedent specified in the amended Agreement, including submission of a formal request to the Macedonian authorities (the "Request") to allow the grant of a security interest to Royal Gold over the Ilovitza Exploitation Concession, the form of the Request already having been agreed between Royal Gold and Euromax.

All other substantive terms of the Gold Purchase and Sale Agreement remain the same.

 

 Commenting on this announcement, Varshan Gokool, CFO of Euromax said:

 "We are delighted with the pragmatic approach that Royal Gold has shown in facilitating the First Amendment of the Gold Purchase and Sale Agreement and the initial funding of US$ 3.75 million, as not only does it show good faith and a true partnership, but it also reflects a clear understanding and recognition of our overall financing plan. Importantly in that context, it allows us to put in place a security package that can be easily and structurally coordinated with the Project Financing that we intend to put in place as part of our overall financing plan."
