AM Gold and Rokmaster Amend Pinaya Option

September 23, 2013

AM Gold Inc. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“AM Gold” or the “Company”) and Rokmaster Resources Corp. (“Rokmaster”) announce that they have entered into an amending agreement on September 18, 2013 (the “Amending Agreement”) pursuant to which they have amended certain provisions of the Option and Joint Venture Agreement dated July 16, 2012 (the “Agreement”) with AM Gold and AM Gold’s Peruvian subsidiary, Canper Exploraciones S.A.C., pursuant to which Rokmaster may earn up to a 75% interest in the Pinaya Gold-Copper Project (“Property”) located in Caylloma and Lampa Provinces, Peru.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Rokmaster was to have made an option cash payment of $400,000 on or before September 11, 2013. Under the Amending Agreement, in lieu of having made such cash payment, the parties have agreed that Rokmaster must make the following cash payments to AM Gold (the “New Cash Payments”):

  • $75,000 within two business days from the date of execution of the Amending Agreement (the “First Payment”);
  • an additional $125,000 on or before January 11, 2014; and
  • an additional $125,000 on or before 30 days following the earliest of: (I) the raising of $500,000 or more by Rokmaster through debt or equity or any merger by Rokmaster where the surviving party has $500,000 or more of cash or short-term investments, (II) the receipt by Rokmaster of any drill permit for the Property and (III) April 1, 2014,

and issue to AM Gold an additional 1,000,000 common shares of Rokmaster (the “Additional Shares”), subject to receipt of approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (“Exchange Approval”). If Rokmaster does not receive Exchange Approval to the issuance of the Additional Shares on or before November 1, 2013, then Rokmaster must pay AM Gold an additional $100,000 within two business days from such deadline. Rokmaster has agreed that the New Cash Payments along with the issuance of the Additional Shares (or the payment of $100,000 in lieu of the Additional Shares if Rokmaster does not obtain Exchange Approval) are binding obligations of Rokmaster, are not optional, and cannot be avoided by any termination of the Agreement, as amended.

To keep Rokmaster’s option in good standing, the parties have also agreed to reduce from $2,500,000 to $1,500,000 the amount that Rokmaster must incur in Property expenditures by September 11, 2014, to increase from $5,100,000 to $6,100,000 the amount that Rokmaster must incur in Property expenditures by September 11, 2016 and to extend by six months to March 11, 2015 the period during which Rokmaster must complete a minimum of 3,000 metres of drilling on the Property.
