VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (August 12, 2014) -- Great Quest Fertilizer Ltd ("the Company") is pleased to report the sale, subject to Exchange approval if and as required, of its Taseko exploration property in British Columbia, Canada, to Amarc Resources Ltd (AHR:TSXV). Great Quest will receive $400,000 in exchange for the property and will retain a 2% royalty that is purchasable for $2M at commencement of commercial production.
The Taseko property was a legacy project within the Company's portfolio, that was under exploration by way of option agreement by Granite Creek Gold (GCX:TSXV). Granite Creek has elected to forego its option to continue work, and Great Quest has simultaneously sold the non-core project. A finder's fee of 5% of the sale price is payable to Granite Creek
Commenting, Jed Richardson, President and CEO, "We thank Amarc and Granite Creek for their attention in expediting this matter. The disposition of this BC project is in keeping with the Company's focus on fertilizer in Africa and will contribute towards funding the environmental work for its phosphate production facility in Mali and scoping level engineering work for the proposed potash production facility in Botswana."
