Forte Minerals has acquired two early-stage copper and gold exploration projects, Pucarini and Esperanza, from private project generator Globe Trotters Resource Group Inc. At another porphyry copper project - Don Gregorio in northern Peru - Forte can acquire 60 percent from Candente Copper Corp. by paying $500,000 and drilling 10,000 meters of holes over three years.
Globe Trotters, which is also a significant shareholder of Forte, has contributed CAD250,000 to the IPO. Globe Trotters holds 5,833,333 shares and 833,333 warrants in the IPO including its participation, representing approximately 15.87% of the issued and outstanding shares of Forte on an undiluted basis. Through the exercise of warrants, Globe Trotters could increase its ownership interest to 17.73% of the issued and outstanding and outstanding shares. From Globe Trotters' holdings, explorer Element 29 Resources (TSXV: ECU) had already sourced its copper assets. There is also overlap between the companies on the part of the directors involved. Forte CEO Patrick Elliott is also on the board of Element 29. Richard Osmond, the interim CEO of Element 29, is a director of Forte. Geologist Paul Johnston is on the board of both companies.
Forte plans to use the fresh capital to drill holes on its Pucarini Epithermal High Sulphidation Gold Project in the Puno region of Peru. Forte owns 100% of the project. The other two porphyry copper projects are also in the permitting stage for drill holes. Esperanza is located in the Paleocene belt in southern Peru and is 100% owned by Forte. Don Gregorio is located in the Miocene belt in northern Peru and is optioned by Candente Copper Corp (TSX:DNT).
