VANCOUVER, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Cayden Resources Inc. (TSX.V:CYD) ("Cayden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the final payment of $7,872,000 USD from its February 1, 2013 land sale which is now complete. In that sale, Cayden's Mexican subsidiary sold approximately 23% (3,997 hectares from the original 17,076 hectares) of its "Morelos Sur Concession" to a subsidiary of Goldcorp Inc. for a total of $15,744,000. The exact boundaries of the sold portion were varied somewhat as part of the final completion documents.
The Company plans to work on monetizing its nearby Las Calles concession next as Cayden management believes this portion of land has significant value due to its proximity to Goldcorp's Los Filos mine (see map) and because of encouraging drill results obtained by Cayden on the concession in 2012.
Ivan Bebek, President and CEO, states "The proceeds from this sale gives Cayden a strong cash position for exploration at our El Barqueño project in 2014. We believe the value of our Las Calles concession will be much higher than the portion of Morelos Sur that was just sold."
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
President and CEO
