QuestEx Gold & Copper Announces Sale of Yukon Properties to Fireweed Zinc

Canada NewsWire


VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 23, 2020 /CNW/ - QUESTEX GOLD & COPPER LTD. (TSX-V: QEX) ("QuestEx" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a property purchase and sale agreement (the "Agreement") with Fireweed Zinc Ltd. ("Fireweed") to sell its portfolio of properties in Yukon's Macmillan Pass district to Fireweed. QuestEx will receive a $100,000 cash payment and 350,000 common shares of Fireweed in exchange for a 100% interest in four properties totalling 74 square kilometres. QuestEx will retain a 0.5% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty for base metals and silver, and a 2% NSR royalty for gold on each of the properties.

Tony Barresi, President of QuestEx comments: "Fireweed Zinc is a highly motivated, effective and efficient explorer of the Macmillan Pass district in Yukon. We are pleased that this transaction will support Fireweed Zinc's efforts in that district and provide our shareholders exposure to Fireweed's potential future growth through our acquired equity stake, and our retained NSR. QuestEx has built a strategic portfolio of large and highly prospective gold and copper projects within British Columbia's Golden Triangle, Toodoggone and Aspen Grove districts and these will continue to be the focus of our exploration attention."

Under the Agreement Fireweed will acquire 410 claims covering a total area of 74 square kilometres. The claims include the Sol Property, which is situated immediately west of Fireweed's Macmillan Pass property, as well as several small separate claim blocks within the district. The Agreement is subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval.  

We seek safe harbor.
