Under the terms of the agreement the Company can acquire up to a 40% interest in Copper Mountain's Fenton Property comprised of 41 minerals claims located in the Omineca mining district of British Columbia. The Company can earn an initial 25% interest in the Fenton Property by making the initial $500,000 payment and an additional payment of $500,000 on or before January 30, 2021.
