LAS VEGAS, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Asia Broadband Inc. (AABB), through its wholly owned subsidiary Asia Metals Inc., has initiated the finalization of a definitive joint venture agreement for the large scale expansion of the Company's mining operations in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Subsequent to the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the joint venture with a Chinese holding company and an evaluation due diligence period, there is agreement from both parties to move forward with the joint venture agreement. The key terms of the agreement are a $34 million capital commitment allocated over a 3 year period, a $5 million initial payment within 30 days of signing the final agreement and a $12 million minimum capital outlay in 2019.

The joint venture capital will be allocated to significantly expand the identified resources within the Asia Broadband properties and build out a new production processing facility with greater efficiency and capacity.

"The completion of the joint venture agreement in the coming weeks will be a powerful synergy for us at this time with the availability of significant expansion capital in combination with our resource delineating drill program. We are thrilled with the progress we made through the summer months to bring everything together to this point," affirmed James Gilbert, the Company President and CEO.
