INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT
SECTION 1 – REGISTRANT’S BUSINESS AND OPERTIONS
Item 1.01 – Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On January 21, 2011, Gryphon Resources Inc. (the ‘Company’) entered into an option (the ‘Cruce Agreement’) to purchase certain mineral exploration rights in Pinal County, Arizona, USA with potential for gold and copper-porphyry reserves. The mineral exploration rights (herein named the ‘Cruce Property’) cover a 560 acre located approximately 40 miles north of Tucson, in south-central Arizona.
The Cruce Property is being sold by two individuals (collectively the “Vendors”) who collectively each owned a 50% interest to the Cruce Property and held the sole right, title and interest to all exploration rights (subject to the rights and title of the State of Arizona), free and clear of all liens and encumbrances. Through the Cruce Agreement, the Vendors granted an exclusive option to Gryphon to purchase a 100% undivided right, title and interest in Vendors’ rights to the Cruce Property, and the Company acquired an option to purchase Vendors’ rights to the Cruce Property from Vendors, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Cruce Agreement (attached hereto as Exhibit A).
To exercise the option in the Cruce Agreement, the Company must, in staged increments, over three years: (i) pay the vendors an aggregate sum of US$265,000; (ii) incur an aggregate of at least US$335,000 of expenditures to explore and develop the Cruce Property; and (iii) issue the vendors an aggregate of 2,600,000 restricted common shares of Gryphon Resources Inc. Additionally, the vendors will receive an net smelter royalty (‘NSR’) payment of 3%, subject to a minimum royalty payment of US$250,000 per year upon commencement of mineral production.
As of the signing date of the Cruce Agreement, the Company had fulfilled its first payment to the Vendors of $40,000, and as of the filing date of this Current Report on Form 8-K had fulfilled issuance of 100,000 restricted common shares to the Vendors to fulfill all requirements of the first payment tier of the Cruce Agreement.
