As compensation, Kiska will receive the following:

- $200,000 worth of additional shares or units (as the case may be) in the capital stock of CGM upon the earlier of:
- The first anniversary of the Agreement, or;
- CGM completing a minimum $2M financing;
- A $2.5M milestone payment within 6 months of Commercial Production, payable in cash or shares at the election of CGM.
The additional CGM shares/units will be priced in accordance with the most recent financing activity of CGM, and Kiska will have the right to maintain its pro-rata ownership in future financings.
"This transaction provides Kiska shareholders with exposure to the value-creating ability of the XTM team -- a talented and proven Ontario exploration group focussed on exploring and consolidating prospective gold properties in the region," stated Grant Ewing, Kiska's CEO.
The Midlothian project is a road-accessible, high-grade, lode gold prospect located in Ontario's Abitibi Greenstone belt, 25 km west of the Young-Davidson gold mine. The property is transected by an under-explored segment of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Fault Zone (CLFZ), host to the prolific gold camps in Kirkland Lake, Rouyn-Noranda and Val-D'Or. Prospecting on the property in 2013 discovered the Bjorkman Zone, a 1 metre wide quartz-carbonate vein with visible gold that returned several high-grade rock chip samples, including a highlight result of 0.8 metres (true width) of 2,060 g/t gold (see August 7, 2013 news release for full suite of results). The Bjorkman Zone is located within the Bjorkman fault, an interpreted secondary fault structure connected to the CLFZ. A property-wide MMI soil survey conducted in 2015 highlighted extensions of the Bjorkman Zone under till cover, and other till-covered areas coincident with interpreted fault structures, as significant exploration targets.
