CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- Margaux Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: MRL) ("Margaux" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amendment (the "Amendment") to its previously announced option agreement (the "Option Agreement") dated November 8, 2013 with Sultan Minerals Inc. ("Sultan") in respect of the Jersey-Emerald Tungsten-Zinc Property (the "Property"), located in southeastern B.C (announced November 11, 2013). The Amendment provides for an extension in the timeframe to make the installment payments required under the original Option Agreement to account for the delay the Company experienced in closing its private placement offering. The recent closing of the Company's private placement (announced January 21, 2014) allows the Company to move forward with the Option Agreement and to make the required initial payments thereunder. In addition, the trading halt on Margaux's common shares will soon be lifted, and the Company expects that trading will resume on January 29, 2014.
Under the terms of the Amendment, Margaux will have the exclusive option to acquire a 100% working interest in the Property (subject to the net smelter returns royalties ("NSRs") discussed below) by:
1. making payments to Sultan of an aggregate $4.0 million, paid in several installments on or before November 8, 2016 (the "Agreement Date") as follows: a. an initial deposit of $50,000 paid previously; b. a cash payment of $150,000 on or before January 29, 2014; c. on or before the January 29, 2014, a cash payment of $300,000, to be held in trust pending receipt of TSX Venture Exchange approval for the transaction; d. on or before the first anniversary of the Agreement Date, a cash payment of $750,000; e. on or before the second anniversary of the Agreement Date, a cash payment of $1,250,000; and f. on or before the third anniversary of the Agreement Date, a cash payment of $1,500,000; and 2. incurring not less than $2,000,000 in expenditures on the Property on or before the third anniversary of the Agreement Date.
Margaux will use its best efforts to incur expenditures of $6,000,000 on the Property on or prior to the third anniversary of the Agreement Date.
The other terms of the Option Agreement remain unchanged, including Sultan's retention of a 1.5% NSR on the Property. For a period of 60 days following the earlier of (a) the commencement of commercial production on the Property or (b) the completion of a feasibility study on the Property, Margaux may purchase 50% of the NSR (being a 0.75% net smelter returns royalty) from Sultan for a payment to Sultan of $5.0 million. The Property is also subject to several additional NSRs, ranging from 1-2% on various areas of the Property.
As announced on January 15, 2014, the Company has appointed Mr. Edward Lawrence to the Board of Directors of the Corporation. Mr. Lawrence will act as the Corporation's "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101, "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects" ("NI 43-101") with respect to the technical disclosure concerning the Property.
As of the date hereof, neither the Company nor Mr. Lawrence have verified the resource estimates or the exploration information pertaining to Sultan's public disclosure regarding the Property. Sultan's resource estimates are considered historical estimates and the estimates should not be relied upon. The Company understands that no additional exploration or development work has been completed on the Property since the dates of Sultan's most recent NI 43-101 reports. In connection with seeking TSX Venture Exchange ("Exchange") approval of the Option Agreement (as discussed below), the Company expects to commission an updated NI 43-101 technical report.
Completion of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of final TSX Venture Exchange approval. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that any information released or received with respect to the Property may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of Margaux should be considered highly speculative.
The TSX Venture Exchange has in no way passed upon the merits of the proposed transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this press release.
Tyler Rice, President and CFO

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...
