TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crystal Peak Minerals Inc. (“Crystal Peak” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CPM, OTCQX: CPMMF) is pleased to announce that, further to the original cooperative development agreement dated July 15, 2011 between the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Peak Minerals Inc. and LUMA Minerals LLC (“LUMA”), as amended, and as further amended by an option agreement dated August 20, 2018 (together, the “LUMA Agreement”), LUMA has granted to the Company an exclusive option (“Option”) to purchase all of its Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) potash leases comprising 22,009.97 acres of leased lands located in Millard County, Utah owned by LUMA (“Leases”) for US$1.00 for each of the 11 Leases. In return for the Option, the Company has paid to LUMA an aggregated of US$2,000,000, composed of US$1,000,000 in cash and 4,283,882 common shares in the capital of the Company. Pursuant to the Option, Crystal Peak has a period of two years from the date the BLM issues a “notice to proceed” to exercise the Option. LUMA will be entitled to a 1.25% overriding royalty on all production from the Leases.

In addition, further to the Company’s news release dated July 20, 2018 regarding the Convertible Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with EMR Capital Investment (No. 5B) Pte. Ltd., the Company announces that it expects to be in a position to draw down the second tranche of the financing, in the amount of US$5,000,000, in early October as further work on the Sevier Lake Project advances.

About LUMA
In 2011, LUMA was the winning bidder of the 11 Leases at a competitive lease auction held by the BLM. Crystal Peak and LUMA subsequently executed the LUMA Agreement, pursuant to which LUMA agreed to grant Crystal Peak the sole and exclusive right and option to acquire its record title and operating rights in and to the Leases under certain terms and conditions. The Leases were also committed to a unit agreement to be entered into by and among the Company and LUMA for the development and operation of the Leases together with certain federal potash leases owned by Crystal Peak and the State of Utah potassium leases owned by a third party in a federal unit, with the Company as the unit operator.
