VANCOUVER, BC, Mar 12, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Kiska Metals Corporation (“Kiska” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a royalty purchase agreement with a private equity fund (the “Fund”) on March 11, 2015. The transaction, which is expected to close within 30 days, will result in net proceeds to Kiska of USD$450,000.
The Fund will acquire the Company’s non-core royalties that it holds on the WKP and Waihi West properties in New Zealand. The New Zealand royalties were acquired by Kiska’s predecessor company, Geoinformatics, as compensation for data compilation and exploration targeting that it conducted in the Coromandel region.
“Management continually assesses the Company’s portfolio in an effort to create value,” stated Kiska’s President Grant Ewing. “With this latest royalty transaction, Kiska has successfully monetized non-core assets and provided the Company with a non-dilutive financing.”
