Nelson Resources Ltd - Nelson Resources signs 3-month option agreement with Haddison Ltd for Yarri Project sale
This potential sale will allow Nelson to focus on its Woodline project

Nelson Resources Ltd (ASX:NES) has signed a three-month option agreement with Haddison Ltd for the potential sale of its Yarri Project in WA’s eastern Goldfields.

The project, which lies 160 kilometres northeast of Kalgoorlie on Edjundina Station comprises three prospects to the north and east of the historic Yarri State Battery site.

Focus on Woodline

Nelson’s focus at Yarri has been on the Wallaby Line of workings immediately to the east of Yarri, where drilling has returned several high-grade, encouraging drill intersections.

This potential sale will allow Nelson to focus on its ‘significant’ 828 square kilometre Woodline project at the boundary of the Albany Fraser Oregon and the Yilgarn Craton.

Option agreement terms

The terms of the option agreement are:

  • Payment to the company of a $5,000 non-refundable option fee (which has been received); 
  • On its election to acquire Yarri, Haddison will pay the company a $100,000 cash consideration; and 
  • Nelson will receive a 2% net smelter royalty for any minerals sold from the Yarri project.

Renounceable rights issue

Nelson has also announced a renounceable rights issue to raise up to $2 million to fund exploration on the Woodline project.

Under the offer, shareholders will be offered one new share for every one existing share held on June 12, with one attaching listed option exercisable at 8 cents and expiring 24 months from issue for every two new shares subscribed.

The offer price represents a 17% discount to the 30-day VWAP of 4.6 cents.

Nelson’s directors believe the issue is attractively priced and intend to participate for their full entitlement, having agreed to sub-underwrite for an additional $150,000 from the shortfall.
