(TSXV: CBAR.P) ("Castlebar" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced proposed transaction respecting the Southern Spectrum mineral property (the "Property") in British Columbia (the "Transaction") (see Castlebar's press releases dated December 11, 2020 and January 22, 2021). Castlebar previously announced that it had entered into a sale, assignment, assumption and amending agreement dated January 22, 2021 (the "Definitive Agreement") with 1162832 B.C. Ltd. ("1162832") and Christopher R. Paul & Michael A. Blady (collectively, the "Optionor"), pursuant to which Castlebar will assume all of 1162832's right, title and interest, as optionee, in and to a property option agreement (the "Option Agreement") dated January 10, 2019, as amended September 10, 2020, respecting the Property.
1162832 acquired its rights in and to the Option Agreement pursuant to a sale, assignment and assumption agreement dated as of November 27, 2020 (the "Assignment Agreement") between 1162832 and CloudBreak Discovery Corp. ("CloudBreak"). As consideration for the assignment of the Option Agreement from CloudBreak, 1162832: made a cash payment of $10,000 to CloudBreak on execution of the Assignment Agreement; and has agreed, upon 1162832 receiving at least 500,000 shares from a publicly listed company (under the Transaction, Castlebar) for the transfer, option or other disposition of some or all of 1162832's interest in and to the Option Agreement or the Property, to transfer 500,000 of such pubco shares to CloudBreak. As a result of the Assignment Agreement, upon closing of the Transaction or as soon as practicable thereafter (including, without limitation, taking into account any statutory or TSX Venture Exchange ("Exchange") hold periods), 1162832 shall be required to transfer 500,000 common shares of Castlebar to CloudBreak.
