  • To reduce the additional considerations payable from $250,000 in cash or shares upon reaching 500,000 ounces of gold resources with at least 250,000 in the Indicated category and a further $250,000 in cash or shares upon completion of a feasibility study to a flat $500,000 in cash or shares upon reaching 1,000,000 ounces of gold resources with at least 500,000 ounces in the Indicated category.

The consideration payable by Stellar for these significant positive amendments is the issuance of 250,000 shares in Stellar to Elemental Altus upon TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of the amending agreements and an additional 250,000 shares upon final issuance of the Zuénoula Gold Licence by the Côte d’Ivoire authorities. Stellar will file these amending agreements with the TSX-V as an Expedited Transaction.

About the Zuénoula Gold Licence

The Zuénoula Gold Licence comprises a single 400km2 permit application which is currently in process with final approval and licence issuance pending. The Zuénoula Gold Licence is in the Marahoue Department in central Côte d’Ivoire, approximately 300 km north of the capital city of Abidjan.

The licence is located 100 km north of the town of Yamoussoukro and is accessible by asphalt roads from Abidjan. Zuénoula is centred within a NNE trending Birimian age granite greenstone belt. Zuénoula is located in a desirable gold region that has attracted a number of foreign corporations including ASX listed Tietto Minerals Limited with its new producer, the Abujar Gold Project. Also active in the region is Perseus Mining with its Yaouré Gold Mine, and Montage Gold with the Koné gold deposit.

Stellar’s Zuénoula gold project targets a 22 km long oblique ENE trending structure, interpreted by historic air magnetic data. Geologically, the project reportedly comprises metasediments, metabasalts and syntectonic granitoid intrusives.

Stellar is fortunate to have access to qualified and experienced African professionals to manage the legal and technical requirements of this acquisition. The exploration team in Côte d’Ivoire will be directly managed by Stellar’s Moroccan director Yassine Belkabir, managing director of African Bureau of Mining Consultants and a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101.
