The royalty per tonne in excess of 400,000 tonnes milled can be reduced to $0.62 per tonne by Imperial making a payment of $1,000,000. Bearing is entitled to 90% of the royalty payments.
Geoff Chater, President and CEO commented, "We are pleased that Imperial has begun to mine the open-pit portion of the Boundary zone at their Mount Polley mine. We expect to receive more meaningful periodic monthly royalty payments as Imperial develops the deposit. Imperial continues to conduct underground exploration below the open-pit with impressive results. Royalty revenue will be used to advance Bearing's exploration portfolio in British Columbia and Mexico."
