Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 9, 2020) - UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of an option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Goliath Resources Inc. ("Goliath") for its Lac James property (the "Property") located in the Chibougamau area, Quebec.

The Property, wholly-owned by UrbanGold, consists of 28 claims (1,560 hectares) and is adjacent to the Joe Mann deposit, a historical high-grade gold mine that produced a total of 1.525 Mt @ 11g/t Au, 0.28% Cu and 4.59 g/t Ag*. The Property overlays the eastern strike extension of the deposit, and the Opawica-Guercheville deformation corridor.

Subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), Goliath may earn a 100% interest in the Property over a period of one (1) year in consideration of the following:

  • Making a total cash payment of $75,000 to UrbanGold by June 29, 2021;
  • Issuing 200,000 common shares of Goliath (the "Goliath Shares") to UrbanGold within five business days of the date of Exchange acceptance of the Option Agreement;
  • Issuing a number of Goliath Shares to UrbanGold having a value of $40,000 at a price per Goliath Share based on the volume weighted average price of Goliath Shares trading on the Exchange for the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding the date upon which Goliath exercises the option to earn its interest in the Property.

In addition to the terms listed above (i) UrbanGold will be granted a royalty consisting of a 1% net smelter return on the Property, (ii) UrbanGold will be awarded a one-time $500,000 cash payment should a future mineral resources estimate disclosing a minimum 250,000 ounces of gold equivalent mineral resources in the inferred, indicated or measured categories be established on the Property; and (iii) Goliath will be assuming a pre-existing 1% net smelter return royalty.

Mathieu Stephens, UrbanGold President and CEO commented: "As we continue to advance our other gold properties, including the Troilus area projects, UrbanGold holds many other high-quality gold assets and we are always looking for solid partners for these assets. The Lac James property is one of these assets and we look forward to working with Goliath and their experienced technical team on this Property."
