MONTRÉAL, May 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canadian Metals Inc. (“CME” or the “Company”) (CSE: CME) is pleased to announce that it has received the first payment of $500,000 from Les Minéraux Industriels du Québec Inc (« MIQ ») in relation to the closing of the May 2, 2019 agreement. This payment represents the first installment of a total of staged cash payments of $ 2,250,000 to be made by MIQ in accordance with the agreement (see press release of May 2, 2019). The second installment of $150,000 will be payable on or before December 31, 2019.
Stéphane Leblanc, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We believe this agreement bolds well with CME’s strategic plan and allows us to focus on the development of our industrial project to transform quartz and leave the quarry operation to an experienced entity. The long-term supply agreement at a locked-in price and the other silica properties owned by CME should provide security to the raw material requirement and meanwhile, the cash generated from this agreement helps support CME’s activities.
