About the Proposed Transaction
In exchange for 100% interest in the Clinton Manganese Project, both Geomap, a British Columbia corporation wholly owned by Afzaal Pirzada and Larry Nemeth, an Ontario resident, both arm’s length parties to Vendome, will each receive 200,000 common shares of Vendome on a post-30:1-Share Consolidation (as defined below) basis and will each receive a cash payment of $10,000. In addition, both Geomap and Larry Nemeth will each retain a 1% net smelter return on the project which may be reduced on payment of $1million per 1%.
“We are very excited to have acquired the Clinton Manganese Project in such a prospective manganese district in Canada.
