Perth, Australia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 8, 2020) – Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX: TMR) (TSXV: TMRR) (“Tempus” or “the Company”) is pleased to advise that it has exercised the option to acquire the Elizabeth Gold Project and has completed an addendum to the original Elizabeth Option Agreement dated December 15, 2019. Under the terms of the amended agreement the Company has now completed all obligations required to transfer ownership of 100% of the Elizabeth Gold Project to Tempus.
To finalise the acquisition, Tempus will make a payment of CAD500,000, and issue 2,173,910 Tempus shares to the optionors, by December 15, 2020, to purchase 1% of the Elizabeth Net Smelter Royalty. The previously agreed advance royalty payment of CAD 30,000 will also be brought forward to December 15, 2020.
Given the later than expected start to the 2020 drilling program at Elizabeth, the optionors have agreed to waive the requirement for the CAD1,000,000 minimum work expenditure commitment, to have been completed by December 31, 2020. The expenditure commitment becomes a post-completion obligation.
Upon completion of the payments defined above, Tempus will have been deemed to have met all conditions of the Option Agreement and will have earned a 100% right, title, and interest in and to the Property, free and clear of all charges, encumbrances and claims, save and except for the ongoing yearly advance royalty payment obligations. The Net Smelter Royalty over the central Elizabeth claims is 3%, while the remainder of the Blackdome-Elizabeth Project has zero Net Smelter Royalty (Figure 1).
Managing Director, Brendan Borg commented, “We are delighted to have completed the option to acquire the key claims in the Elizabeth sector of the Blackdome-Elizabeth Project. This results in 100% ownership of the Elizabeth claims and demonstrates the Company’s commitment to the continued exploration and development of the Blackdome- Elizabeth Project.”
Completion of the revised Option Agreement and issue of equity consideration is subject to TSX.V approval.
This announcement has been authorised by the Board of Directors of Tempus Resources Limited.

About the Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project
Tempus is focussed on rapidly verifying and expanding the historical high grade Mineral Resource at the Blackdome-Elizabeth Project in British Columbia by drilling extensions to existing mineralisation and other high priority targets within the 350 km2 licence area, which remains relatively unexplored. Tempus also intends to leverage the existing permitted mill, tailings dam and other infrastructure at Blackdome with the aim of re-commencing production as the Project proceeds.
