Ich habe mir vorhin einmal die Mühe gemacht den aktuellen Quartalsberichte zu lesen. Danach verstehe ich die Vereinbarung mit Schlumberger aber, dass sämtliche Rechte an dem Clayton Valley Projekt an Schlumberger im Rahmen einer Optionsvereinbarung veräußert wurden und im Gegenzug bei Ausübung der Kaufoption nur eine 3 % Fee auf die Erträge aus dem produzierten Lithium gezahlt wird. Seht ihr dass auch so?
Hier der Auszug:
The Company entered into an Earn-In Agreement (the "Transaction") with Schlumberger Technologies Corporation, a subsidiary of Schlumberger Limited ("SLB" or the "Investor") on May 28, 2019 for the option (the "Option") of, and if completed, the sale of the Clayton Valley Project (the “Project") to SLB. The Transaction proposal received greater than a two-thirds majority vote of shareholders at the Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders convened on the above date in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Under the Transaction, the Company has granted SLB an option in favour of SLB to acquire all of the Company’s interests in the Project. The Investor may earn into the Option by constructing a pilot plant for the processing of lithium brine at its cost and expense, and complete testing of the brines to meet certain criteria. The Investor has a three-year period in which to exercise the Option (commencing on the receipt of the final federal and state permits required to construct the pilot plant) and may only exercise the Option if it has completed construction of the pilot plant and test work that achieves required parameters.
During the Option period, SLB will assume all project-related property, permitting and development costs and will act as operator of the Project.
Upon exercise of the Option, the Company will be entitled to receive a 3% net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) on minerals produced at the Project and an advance minimum royalty payment of US$400,000 annually commencing January 1, 2021 for a period of five years or until the Project achieves commercial production.
Concurrently, SLB undertook a private placement in the Company for US$1,500,000, representing 32,421,737 shares (note 8) and converted convertible debt of US$400,000 and interest of $19,765 representing 5,523,707 shares (note 8) of Pure Energy. These transactions resulted in a 19.9% interest in Pure Energy held by SLB at June 30, 2019.
