Lake Shore Gold Reaches Agreement to Sell Mexican Properties to Revolution Resources

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Lake Shore Gold Corp. (TSX:LSG)(NYSE MKT:LSG)(NYSE Amex:LSG) ("Lake Shore Gold" or the "Company") today announced that the Company has entered into a purchase and sale agreement (the "Agreement") with Revolution Resources Corp. ("Revolution") to sell to Revolution 100% of the Company's Mexican property portfolio, which includes the Universo property and the Montana de Oro, La Bufa and Lluvia de Oro properties totaling over 400,000 hectares in two historic mining regions of Mexico.

Tony Makuch, President and CEO of Lake Shore Gold, commented: "With today's Agreement we are selling our Mexican portfolio while still retaining exposure to the considerable exploration upside these properties possess through a significant equity interest in Revolution and through NSRs on the properties. We originally acquired these property interests as part of our 2009 acquisition of West Timmins Mining Inc., through which we gained 100% ownership of our Thunder Creek property and other high-potential exploration properties in the Timmins Camp. With the Agreement announced today, we are positioning the Mexican properties to be advanced while not drawing on our management time or financial resources."

Under the terms of the New Agreement, on closing Lake Shore Gold's existing option agreement with Revolution will terminate (see Lake Shore Gold press release dated July 26, 2012), and the Company will transfer 100% of its rights, title and interest in the properties included in its Mexico portfolio to Revolution, subject to certain net smelter return royalties ("NSR"). The consideration payable to the Company by Revolution under the Agreement is:

--  20,000,000 common shares of Revolution, issuable on closing; subject to
    certain sale restrictions as described below; 
    
--  the grant to Lake Shore Gold of the following royalty interests (subject
    in each cast to certain rights of Revolution to repurchase a portion of
    the NSR) 
    
    --  a 2% NSR on the Universo Property 
        
    --  a 3.5% NSR on the properties comprising the Montana de Oro project
        forming part of the Montana de Oro Property 
        
    --  a 2.5% NSR on the properties comprising the La Bufa project forming
        part of the Montana de Oro Property and 
        
    --  a 2.0% NSR on the properties comprising the Lluvia de Oro project
        forming part of the Montana de Oro Property; and, 
        
--  on or before December 31, 2017, CDN$5,000,000 in cash or common shares
    valued at the greater of $0.20 and a five day volume weighted average
    trading price. 

In addition to the applicable four-month hold period under Canadian securities laws, Lake Shore Gold has agreed to certain restrictions on the transfer of shares issued to it under the New Agreement for a period of 18 months following the date of issuance. The New Agreement also contains a standstill provision that prohibits Lake Shore Gold from acquiring additional shares and taking certain other actions without Revolution's consent for 18 months following the closing date.

In addition, on closing and through 2014, Lake Shore Gold will have the right to at least two nominees to the board of directors of Revolution and Lake Shore Gold will continue to have rights to appoint one or more nominees depending on its level of ownership for so long as Lake Shore Gold holds at least 5% of the outstanding Revolution shares.

Completion of the transaction is subject to acceptance of the Toronto Stock Exchange, which is expected to involve Revolution obtaining approval of its shareholders through ordinary resolution. Upon closing of the transaction, the 20,000,000 common shares issuable by Revolution to Lake Shore Gold will result in Lake Shore Gold holding a total of 26,713,740 Revolution shares or 22.7% of the outstanding Revolution shares.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
