VANCOUVER, BC, November 16, 2017 - Novo Resources Corp. (“Novo” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NVO; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding terms sheet with Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation (“NAC”) regarding the Comet Well and surrounding tenements which are subject to various sale, royalty, farm-in and joint venture arrangements entered into by the Company (please see the Company’s previous news releases for further details). NAC has committed to expeditiously prepare and execute heritage agreements with the Company and progress heritage surveys on the Comet Well and surrounding tenements in an efficient manner and on a priority basis. Upon execution of the heritage agreements and receipt of necessary regulatory approvals, the Company will issue to NAC 100,000 Novo common shares (the “Consideration Shares”). The Consideration Shares will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months from the date of issuance.
“We are delighted that Ngarluma Aboriginal Corporation have committed to expediting the heritage agreement and heritage clearance processes for the Comet Well and surrounding tenements,” commented Mr. Rob Humphryson, the CEO and a director of Novo Resources Corp. “Our positive relationship with Ngarluma stems from a mutual alignment to progress the Karratha gold project whilst generating direct benefits and sustainable outcomes for the Ngarluma people. Having the Ngarluma people as shareholders in Novo will allow them to directly share in Novo’s success. Expediting these agreements and clearances will also allow the Comet Well tenements to progress to the grant stage, thereby cementing our joint ownership interests in the tenements and allowing us to submit our programmes of work for approval.”
