Montreal, January 14, 2018 / TheNewswire / St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, ZeU Crypto Networks Inc. ("ZeU"), a private blockchain technology company, has entered into a non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") to acquire all of the Blockchain and Smart Contract Technologies assets (the "Transaction") of Qingdao Tiande Technologies Inc. ("Tiande"), a Chinese private company.
Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the proposed consideration for the Transaction is an aggregate amount of CND$150 million payable through the issuance of 150,000,000 common shares ("Shares") and 75,000,000 Shares purchase warrants ("Warrants") in the capital of ZeU. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one (1) Share at a price of CND$1.00 for a period of three (3) years following the date ZeU completes a transaction pursuant to which its common shares will either be listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America, or will be exchanged for common shares of a reporting issuer listed on a recognized stock exchange in North America.
On January 4, 2018 St-Georges (the "Company") announced it was granted an exclusive global license to Tiande's Blockchain and Smart Contract technology for mineral commodity production, trading and tracking. The Company assigned the License to ZeU in consideration of 20,000,000 common shares of ZeU. Whereas St-Georges owned 100% of ZeU with a license specific to the mineral commodity space, upon successful completion of the transaction, St-Georges will share ownership in ZeU, with global application reach.
"We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with Tiande and their world class scientific team. Dr. Tsai has laid out a plan to deploy what many industry experts believe to be a world class Blockchain ecosystem that stands at the threshold of a new, far-reaching technological revolution. The assets being acquired today, from the patents to the commercial and sovereign relationships and the significant human capital, are second to none in the domain. Our Ecosystem is ready to be deployed in this quarter, starting with the SandBox initiative and quickly followed by the BigData suite of solutions. Finally, the biggest and most significant mass application project, The "Internet of Blockchains" (IoB), will be released before the end of 2018. Response to IoB in every meeting with industry specialists has been significant and, in some cases, has triggered discussions into the realm of what was once unimaginable" said Frank Dumas, CEO and President of St-Georges and ZeU.
The Transaction is anticipated to close on or before February 28, 2018 with a definitive purchase agreement being entered into on or before February 5, 2018. The Transaction is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and certain conditions pursuant to the terms of the LOI, including the completion of a CND$20 million financing on term acceptable to ZeU and satisfactory due diligence.
The Company controls directly or indirectly, through rights of first refusal, all of the active mineral tenures in Iceland. It also explores for nickel on the Julie Nickel Project & for industrial minerals on Quebec's North Shore and for lithium and rare metals in Northern Quebec and in the Abitibi region. Headquartered in Montreal, St-Georges' stock is listed on the CSE under the symbol SX, on the US OTC under the Symbol SXOOF and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol 85G1.
