Greenwich, Connecticut --- April 13, 2007 --- Global Gold Corporation (OTCBB - GBGD) (www.globalgoldcorp.com) today announced its option agreement on the Cochrane Pond uranium target in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The agreement is between Global's wholly owned subsidiary, Global Gold Uranium LLC (Global Gold Uranium), Commander Resources Ltd., and Bayswater Uranium Corp.
The Cochrane Pond property consists of 2,600 claims within 61,000 hectares (approximately 150,708 acres). The claims were staked in early 2006 based upon favorable geology following discovery of uranium potential nearby. The property is located in the southeast of Newfoundland, and a map showing the location is available on the Global Gold website.
Under the option terms, Global Gold Uranium may earn a 51% equity interest over a period of four years in Cochrane Pond Property by completing:
Upon Global Gold Uranium vesting 51% in the Property, Global Gold Uranium may elect to increase its equity position to 60% by either:
Once Global Gold Uranium has vested the Second Stage, a joint venture will be formed, 60% as to Global Gold Uranium and 40% as to Commander and Bayswater. The project will be funded pro-rata by parties according to their retained interest. If either Global Gold Uranium's or the Commander/Bayswater interest is diluted below 10%, that party's interest will convert to a royalty.
Either party may, at any time up to the commencement of commercial production, elect to convert their respective interest to a 2% gross uranium sales royalty in the case of a uranium deposit or a 2% NSR in the case of a non-uranium deposit. In either case, 50% of the royalty obligation may be purchased at any time prior to commercial production for a $1,000,000 cash payment.
