VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Pacific Road Resources Funds (“PRRF”) announce that PRRF has entered into an amending agreement (the “Amending Agreement”) with First Bauxite Corporation (the “Corporation”) to extend the maturity date of the Offeror’s C$9,847,901 aggregate principal amount of convertible notes (the “Notes”) to June 30, 2018. In addition, PRRF entered into an option agreement with Resource Capital Fund V LP and Resource Capital Fund VI LP (collectively, “RCF”), pursuant to which PRRF granted RCF an option (the “Option”) to acquire all of PRRF’s 13,127,984 common shares of the Corporation (“Common Shares”) and C$9,847,901 aggregate principal amount of Notes. The Option may be exercised by RCF at any time until June 30, 2018 for an aggregate exercise price of US$3,000,000. In addition, RCF paid an initial payment of US$750,000 to PRRF.
