Star Minerals Group Ltd. Signs MOU: Looks to Generate Cash Flow From Montana Gold Operation

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Star Minerals Group Ltd. ("Star" or the "Company") (CSE:SUV) is pleased to announce the Company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with a private group ("Lessor") to lease certain mineral claims and assume management of the Casey-Snyder placer gold operation near Drummond, Montana.

Under the terms of the MOU, Star will form a US subsidiary company ("Star US") that, upon completion of certain due diligence related to title and permitting, and the execution of a definitive agreement, will:


--  Lease the Casey-Snyder mineral claims for a period of 10 years, or as
    long as commercial production is maintained. 
--  Pay the Lessor a 15% royalty on all gold produced from the Casey-Snyder
    operation with a minimum royalty payable of US$50,000. The royalty can
    be paid in cash or gold, at the Lessor's option. Star US will advance
    US$25,000 of the initial royalty payment on signing the lease agreement.
--  Lease additional mineral claims in the vicinity of the Casey-Snyder
    property for US$10,000 per annum, with lease payments escalating
    annually at a mutually agreed upon rate, until gold production is
    achieved on the claims, after which payment will revert to the same 15%
    royalty arrangement applicable to the Casey-Snyder property. 
--  Rent suitable existing operating equipment from the Lessor. 
--  Provide sufficient start-up working capital to recommence operations.

It is expected that the remaining due diligence will be completed shortly and a definitive agreement signed in the next few weeks.

The Casey-Snyder property is situated in an historic gold mining area. Since the 1890s, both hard rock and placer gold mining operations have existed in the immediate area of the Casey-Snyder claims, and since the 1980s, small-scale placer gold mining has taken place on the Casey-Snyder claims. Star management feels that there is excellent potential to upgrade the current operations to the point where they can generate significant cash flow for the Company. The property also offers excellent exploration potential to locate an in situ source of the gold.

Jim Engdahl states, "Star's core focus of strategic metals is strengthened through the acquisition of the Casey-Snyder placer gold operation. The operation is a strategic asset which is intended to produce short and long term cash flow to the company to further its core exploration assets. This will enable further progress on acquiring a diversified strategic metals portfolio while increasing shareholder value in a continuing volatile market environment. Further, Star is pleased to have secured experienced, dedicated personnel in Montana to ensure short and long term maximization of the cash flow potential of this low capital cost asset."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
