Comet Resources Ltd (Comet or the Company) (ASX:CRL) is pleased to announce that it has executed a Share Purchase and Joint Venture Agreement (SPA) with the shareholders of El Alamo Resources Limited (EARL) for the 100% acquisition (Acquisition) of the Santa Teresa Gold Project (Project). Documentation of the binding gold streaming and royalty financing (Financing) with Raptor Capital International Limited (Raptor) to fund activities at the Project for up to US$20 million (initial minimum of US$6 million) is advanced and is expected to complete in the near-term.

Comet Managing Director, Matthew O’Kane, commented, “From the initial announcement of this transaction to closing, the gold price has increased over US$200 per ounce. This has increased the potential value of Santa Teresa for Comet and we are now looking forward to commencing work on the historical drill core and a maiden JORC resource. In parallel, we will plan our initial field activities. The relatively under explored nature of the Project and the richness of the district provides a lot of scope to extend mineralisation.”

Comet has negotiated an accelerated acquisition of its initial 50% interest in the Santa Teresa Gold Project by agreeing that the certain conditions precedent to the acquisition be treated as conditions subsequent. Refer to Annexure A for further details.

Best Gold Stocks on the ASX

Click here to read the previous best ASX gold stocks article.

2020 was a record-breaking year for gold, which surged above US$2,060 per ounce in August.

However, the yellow metal faced some downward pressure in the first quarter of 2021, falling below US$1,750 in March. The major forces acting against gold in Q1 of this year included rising US 10 year Treasury yields and the growing value of the US dollar.

However, there is still plenty of investor interest in the metal due to continued global economic uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply is also a growing concern due to decreased gold exploration efforts over the last few years, especially among larger companies.
