THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA (September 12, 2014) - MetalCorp Limited (“MetalCorp”) (TSXV – MTC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with PC Gold Inc. (“PC Gold”) for MetalCorp to sell to PC Gold twenty-eight (28) mining claims (the “Claims”) totalling 5,600 hectares located adjacent to PC Gold’s Pickle Crow gold project in the Patricia Mining Division, Ontario.
Pursuant to the agreement, and subject to the prior approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, as consideration for the Claims, PC Gold has agreed to issue 6,000,000 common shares to MetalCorp and to pay MetalCorp $65,000 in cash, payable $25,000 on the first anniversary from closing, $25,000 on the second anniversary from closing and $15,000 on the third anniversary from closing.
PC Gold has also agreed to pay MetalCorp the amount of $1,000,000 upon the commencement of any commercial production from the Claims, with commercial production being deemed to have occurred upon the first day on which aggregate production from the Claims is equal to or greater than two thousand (2,000) troy ounces of gold.

Certain of the Claims will be subject to a 2% net smelter royalty in favour of MetalCorp, one-half of which may be purchased by PC Gold at any time for $2.0 million. The balance of the Claims will be subject to a 1% net smelter royalty in favour of MetalCorp, one-half of which may be purchased by PC Gold at any time for $1.0 million.
