Calgary, Alberta(FSCwire) - Morro Bay Resources Ltd. (TSXV: MRB), (“Morro Bay”), announces that it has released its Q3, 2014 Consolidated Financial Statements and Management Discussion and Analysis (these can be found on SEDAR). The Third Quarter saw Morro Bay incur approximately $750,000 of expenditures at PeÑoles. The incurring of such expenditures was one of the pre-requisites to Morro Bay exercising the option to acquire at least a 51% (and up to a 65% interest) in the PeÑoles Project. Results of the exploration program were previously announced on June 9, 2014 and June 23, 2014 and included the discovery of a new zone of near surface mineralization to the south of Jesus Maria.
Subsequent to the end of the Third Quarter, Morro Bay entered into an Agreement whereby the date for the exercise of the option on the PeÑoles Project was extended to be the later of November 30, 2014 and the date which is 75 days after the completion of the Additional Work Program and in any event not later than December 31, 2014 (the "Option Exercise Date").
In addition, subsequent to the end of the Third Quarter, Morro Bay delivered 10,135,135 common shares (at a deemed value of $0.074 per share) to Riverside in satisfaction of the $750,000 advance payment (the “Advance Payment”) required under the Amended Option Agreement (see News Release dated July 7, 2014). Morro Bay and Riverside have agreed that 7,094,595 of these shares will not be traded until December 31, 2014. As a result of having made the Advance Payment the previously required $1.5 million cash or share payment required under the Option Agreement has been reduced to $750,000.
