VANCOUVER, BC—(Marketwired – May 05, 2017) – Almadex Minerals Limited (“Almadex” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: AMZ) (OTCQB: AXDDF) announces that, pursuant to its Stock Option Plan, it has granted stock options to certain directors, officers and consultants of the Company to purchase an aggregate 583,000 common shares in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $1.10 per share which expire on May 5, 2019.
Almadex Minerals Limited is an exploration company that holds a large mineral portfolio consisting of projects and NSR royalties in Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. This portfolio is the direct result of over 35 years of prospecting and deal–making by Almadex's predecessor company, Almaden Minerals Ltd. Almadex is currently focused on exploration at its El Cobre gold/copper porphyry project in Veracruz, Mexico, in which it holds a 100% interest, subject to a sliding–scale net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) equivalent to 0.5% in the event that production from the property exceeds 10,001 tonnes per day of ore. This NSR can be reduced to 0.25% at this production rate through the payment of US$3 million.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
