OCTOBER 30, 2018, VANCOUVER, B.C. – PROGRESSIVE PLANET SOLUTIONS INC. (PLAN-TSX:V) (“Progressive Planet”, “PLAN” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that an agreement has been signed between Berkwood Resources and Progressive Planet.
The Terms of the agreement allow Progressive Planet to earn a 5% interest to the Lac Guéret South Graphite property in exchange for spending $250,000 in expenditure before December 31, 2018. During a period of 6 months, either party will have the right to execute a buy-back scenario in which case Berkwood would purchase the 5% back by paying to Progressive Planet 1,750,000 Units. Each unit will entitle PLAN to receive one share, and one half warrant of the company which at the time of signing this agreement constitutes 5% of the Issued and Outstanding Shares of Berkwood. This transaction is subject to exchange approval.
The Lac Guéret project is being led by the same geologist who discovered the Mason Graphite deposit which runs on trend, and borders this project which displays similar prospective geology, including geophysical anomalies. The project is made up of 288 Claims which cover a total area of 15,552 hectares. Three drill programs have been completed to date with 27 holes drilled covering 4,006m. Of the holes drilled, 26 of the 27 had significant graphite intersections (Hole 25 intersected 130.55 m averaging 17.37 Cgr). Assays have confirmed average grades in the range of 14.39% to 25.52% Cgr and true thicknesses ranging 22.1 to 90 meters. The graphite is high grade and large flake, making it highly desirable to industry.
“This option agreement allows both our companies to provide great value to our shareholders. We are very excited to have worked out an arrangement which would allow our Company to benefit from the hard work that has already been done to date on the Lac Guéret project. This project is of great interest to our company based on it’s neighbor, Mason Graphite’s success. We are glad that we were able to work together to bring this project forward. We intend to get drilling in the coming weeks.” stated Steve Harpur, CEO of Progressive Planet.
A drill program is scheduled to begin in November.
