April 30, 2014 (Source: FSC Wire) — JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V: JOR) (“JOURDAN”) (www.jourdan.ca) and SATORI RESOURCES INC. (TSX-V:BUD) (“SATORI”) (www.satoriresources.ca); (together with Jourdan and Satori, the (“Parties”)) are pleased to announce that they intend to form a Strategic Alliance and that they have signed a letter of intent for Satori to option (“Option”) a 50% interest Jourdan’s Picnic Phosphate Property. Satori will, among other things, issue 500,000 shares of Satori to Jourdan, and will complete a private placement (“Private Placement”) in Jourdan for gross proceeds of $25,000. An exploration program related to the sampling, exploitation, and exploration of phosphate rock, and transportation of mineral product from same, to testing labs for evaluation and suitability for fertilizer, particularly as it relates to growing marijuana for licenced medical marijuana entities shall be commenced shortly.
“Satori believes that rock phosphate minerals will have a growing place in specialized agricultural operations and in the fertilizer industry overall. With expanding worldwide demand for phosphates, an essential nutrient for both plants and animals, it is prudent to have domestic sources of supply.” states Jennifer Boyle, President and CEO of Satori. “Further, as Satori continues to review opportunities in the marketplace, it is clear that a transaction of this nature can be a great fit into the Company’s future plans”, she added.
Michael Dehn, President and CEO of Jourdan, added: “Our partnership with Satori will allow the Picnic Phosphate Property to have a rapid exploration program on a site that has been previously only explored for nickel and copper and demonstrates true potential for phosphate mineralization. Satori has a very aggressive team ready to help move the project forward, and together with Jourdan’s skilled technical team, we should know in short order the true potential of the Picnic Property.”.
In order for Satori to earn a 50% interest in the Picnic Phosphate Property, it shall, in addition to above, incur an additional $75,000 in exploration expenditures prior to the first anniversary of the Option, and an additional $525,000 in exploration expenditures prior to the end of the third anniversary of the Option.Additionally, it shall issue to Jourdan 500,000 shares prior to the second anniversary of the Option (subject to a maximum value of $75,000 as determined by the 20-day VWAP of Satori).
The $25,000 Private Placement by Satori in Jordan shall be comprised of Units, at a price of $.05 per Unit. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of Jourdan and one full purchase warrant of Jourdan exerciseable at a price of $0.10 for one year.
As part of this Option, Jourdan and Satori have agreed to further negotiate terms of a one year strategic alliance, whereby it is contemplated that Satori shall source additional licensed marijuana growers to test Jourdan’s (including the Joint Venture’s) phosphate products as it relates to a growth media and slow release natural release fertilizer conducive for growing marijuana in legal forums (and other products), and any proceeds from same shall be shared equally unless otherwise agreed to in writing.
Upon completion of the Option terms, Satori and Jourdan shall form a joint venture (“JV) pursuant to which each shall be responsible for its pro rata 50% share of expenditures.
Any newly acquired mineral rights by either party, directly or indirectly, within 5 kilometres of the Picnic Property shall become subject to the Option and the JV.
The terms and conditions set out above shall be subject to Satori and Jourdan obtaining final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
