Crusader Resources Enters into Sale Agreement

for Posse Iron Ore Mine


Further to the proposed acquisition announced on 18 May 2017, Stratex International plc, the AIM-quoted gold exploration and development company, reports that Crusader Resources Limited (“Crusader”) has today announced that it has signed a conditional sale agreement to divest its 100% interest in the Posse Iron Ore mine (“Posse”) in Brazil for R$8.005 million (approximately £1.94 million or US$2.57 million).

The consideration will be paid over a 17 month period. The sale is conditional on Crusader receiving the first payment of R$1.0 million (approximately £0.24 million or US$0.32 million) on or before 10 August 2017. The remaining funds will be received in 15 equal monthly payments commencing 60 days from the effective date of the sale agreement (1 August 2017). The sale agreement is also conditional on the transfer of the Posse mineral tenements to the acquirer by the Brazilian Mines Department, which Crusader believes should be a standard procedure.

Marcus Engelbrecht, CEO of Stratex, said:The agreed sale of Posse marks an important step in our ongoing acquisition of Crusader, reinforcing the Company’s intention to become a gold explorer and near-term producer and freeing the management team of the combined group to focus on that vision.”
