Vancouver, BC - Cypress Development Corp. (TSX-V: CYP) (OTCQB: CYDVF) (Frankfurt: C1Z1) (“Cypress” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, through the Company’s U.S. subsidiary, Cypress Holdings (Nevada) Ltd., the Company has fulfilled its obligations under its 2016 Option Agreement for the purchase of 100% interest in the Glory Property in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The Company completed the purchase on schedule with a cash payment of USD $75,000 and issuance of 250,000 common shares of Cypress (CYP) shares to the vendor. The vendor retains a 3% net smelter return (NSR) royalty interest. Cypress or its assigns has the right to purchase two-thirds of the royalty, or 2% NSR, for USD $1 million at anytime.
The Glory Property consists of 137 unpatented placer and lode claims in the southern third of the Company’s Clayton Valley Lithium Project. Completion of the purchase obligations of the Dean Property, which adjoins the Glory Property to the north, is due later this year. The Dean property is held under a separate 2016 Option Agreement with similar terms to the Glory Property.
In October 2018, the Company released a Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Clayton Valley Lithium Project (see News Release Oct. 1st). Cypress has been making progress on the recommended Prefeasibility Study (PFS). Metallurgical tests have been underway using available sample material from previous drilling. Drilling is expected to resume this month or early February with a short infill program which will target resources in the pit area for the PFS and obtain fresh sample material. Completion of the PFS is expected in the second quarter this year.
