VANCOUVER, B.C., July 30, 2020 – Lithoquest Diamonds Inc. (TSX-V: LDI) (“Lithoquest”, or the “Company”) today provided a corporate update.
New Project Initiatives
Funding for diamond exploration has become increasingly difficult to secure due to challenging conditions in the overall diamond industry. As a result, the Company has placed the North Kimberley Diamond Project on care and maintenance until financing conditions improve.
In order to build value, the Company, along with its advisors, has commenced a process to actively review mineral projects. The objective is to secure, through acquisition or joint venture, one or more projects that offer significant discovery potential. Preference is being given to projects located in stable jurisdictions, containing gold and copper, however, other mineral commodities are also being considered. The Company will provide further updates as appropriate.
Grant of Options
The Company has granted stock options in accordance with the terms and conditions of its rolling Stock Option Plan, entitling the purchase of an aggregate 2,225,000 common shares by certain officers, directors, consultants, and advisors to the Company. Each stock option will be exercisable at $0.10 per common share until July 30, 2025.
