Reservoir Minerals, Toronto stock market listed company which is a joint venture partner of Freeport McMoRaN reported on their joint copper-gold drilling research project of Timok Cukaru Peka deposit in Eastern Serbia.

The operator of the Timok Project is Freeport-McMoRan Exploration Corporation after acquiring 55% equity interest under the Rakita Agreement.

Freeport gave notice to the Company in July 2012 that it had elected to sole fund expenditures on or for the benefit of the Timok Project until the completion and delivery to the Company of a feasibility study to bankable standards (the “Bankable Feasibility Study”), subject to its right to cease such funding at any time. The Bankable Feasibility Study must be in such form as is normally required by substantial, internationally recognized financial institutions for the purpose of deciding whether or not to loan funds for the development of mineral deposits. If Freeport completes the Bankable Feasibility Study, Freeport will indirectly own 75% and Reservoir 25% of the Timok Project.
