One of the Estate Uranium Properties, consisting of 4,690 hectares, is located between Forsys Metal Corp.'s (FSY) Valencia and Namibplaas uranium deposits, known as the Norasa Project.

'We are excited to complete due diligence and move this proposed transaction forward given the proximity to a number of well-known uranium projects in the world's 4th ranked uranium producing country. As is custom in Namibia, we welcome the opportunity to explore with our 15% Namibian partners,' commented newly appointed President and CEO, Jason Bagg.

As outlined in the LOI, Monterey will pay US$175,000 cash and 8,000,000 common shares of the Company as consideration to the Vendors for the acquisition of the Estate Uranium Properties.
