Magna Terra Minerals Inc and Anaconda Mining Inc announced that they have entered into a definitive Share Purchase Agreement dated October 14, 2019, whereby Magna Terra proposes to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Anaconda’s wholly-owned subsidiary, 2647102 Ontario Inc. ExploreCo owns a 100% interest in the Great Northern and Viking Projects in Newfoundland and Labrador and the Cape Spencer Project in New Brunswick. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to position ourselves through the acquisition of ExploreCo in the established mining jurisdictions of Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick. The Appalachian geological region has numerous multi-million ounce gold deposits with about 30% of them situated in Atlantic Canada. Recent development and exploration success has brought renewed interest in the region, and the acquisition of this significant project portfolio with multiple drill ready targets will allow us to rapidly generate value. We will also continue to look at all opportunities to advance and extract value from our extensive project portfolio in Santa Cruz, Argentina.

Lew Lawrick President and CEO of Magna Terra said that "In 2018, Anaconda created a wholly-owned subsidiary to house these advanced stage, highly-prospective, Atlantic Canadian exploration projects, with the aim of developing strategic alternatives to realize value from them. We have established these gold projects in areas with sizeable land packages that provide the platform to build significant district-scale mineral resources in Atlantic Canada in the long term. We have continued to create value at these projects with low expenditures and are well positioned to realize future value for our shareholders through this transaction with Magna Terra, while remaining focused on our core assets at Goldboro, Nova Scotia and the Tilt Cove and Point Rousse Projects on the Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland”
