Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 1, 2018, Silver Bull Resources, Inc. (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries Minera Metalin S.A. de C.V. (“Minera Metalin”) and Contratistas de Sierra Mojada S.A. de C.V. entered into an Option Agreement (the “Option Agreement”) with South32 International Investment Holdings Pty Ltd (“South32”), a wholly owned subsidiary of South32 Limited (ASX/JSE/LSE: S32), whereby the Company granted South32 an option to purchase 70% of the equity of Minera Metalin (the “Option”) and oversee the mineral exploration of Minera Metalin’s Sierra Mojada project located in Coahuila, Mexico (the “Project”). The Option Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Option Agreement, in order for South32 to maintain its Option, South32 must contribute to Minera Metalin a minimum of US$10 million in tranches over the first four years of the Option for Project funding (the “Initial Funding”). South32 may exercise the Option at any time by contributing US$100 million to Minera Metalin (the “Subscription Payment”), less the amount of Initial Funding previously contributed by South32. Once the full amount of the Subscription Payment is advanced by South32 and the Option exercised, the Company and South32 will be obligated to contribute funding to Minera Metalin on a 30/70 pro rata basis. If South32 elects not to continue with the Project during the four-year option period, then the Project will remain 100% owned by the Company.
The parties have made customary representations, warranties, indemnities, and restrictive and affirmative covenants in the Option Agreement for a transaction of this nature. The assertions embodied in these provisions were made solely for purposes of the Option Agreement between the parties and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the parties in connection with the negotiated terms. The Company’s stockholders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Option Agreement and should not rely on the provisions or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or conditions of the Company or any of its respective subsidiaries or affiliates.
As part of the transaction, the parties may enter into other agreements, including, but not limited to, a shareholders agreement and a royalty agreement. The Option Agreement has been approved by the board of directors of the Company, but the Subscription Payment is subject to regulatory approval in Mexico.
The foregoing description of the Option Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01
Other Events.
On June 4, 2018, the Company issued a press release regarding the Option Agreement. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
