Sulliden Provides Update on Sale of Troilus Option to Pitchblack

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 8, 2017) - Sulliden Mining Capital Inc. (TSX:SMC) ("Sulliden" or the "Company") provides an update on the proposed sale of its option to acquire 100% of the Troilus gold project (the "Troilus Project") to Pitchblack Resources Ltd. ("Pitchblack") announced on June 21, 2017. The Troilus Project is a former gold and copper mine located approximately 450 kilometers north-east of Val-d'Or in the province of Quebec, Canada. 

A detailed analysis determined that in order for the transaction to be most tax effective as a result of an option granted by Sulliden's wholly owned subsidiary, 2507868 Ontario Inc. (the "Sulliden Sub"), to 2513924 Ontario Inc. ("251 Ontario"), a private company, to acquire 40% of the Troilus Project (the "Option"), Pitchblack now intends to acquire both the Sulliden Sub and 251 Ontario in order to acquire 100% of the Troilus Project.

Revised Agreement between Pitchblack and Sulliden

Pursuant to an amended and restated share purchase agreement (the "Amended Purchase Agreement") with Pitchblack dated September 8, 2017, Sulliden still intends to sell all of the outstanding equity securities of Sulliden Sub to Pitchblack, however; the consideration payable by Pitchblack to Sulliden pursuant to the terms of the Amended Purchase Agreement has been reduced to 60,000,000 common shares of Pitchblack to account for the Option. Pitchblack will now also acquire all the equity securities of 251 Ontario for consideration of 40,000,000 common shares of Pitchblack. As with the previous arrangement, the net consideration to be received by Sulliden remains unchanged; as under the original arrangement Sulliden was required to transfer 40,000,000 Pitchblack common shares to the shareholders of 251 Ontario in order for 251 Ontario to waive its entitlement to the Option.
