Vancouver – May 1, 2018 - Gungnir Resources Inc. (GUG: TSX-V, ASWRF: OTCPK) (“Gungnir” or the “Company”) reports that 0995237 B.C. Ltd. (“0995237”) has requested an extension of time to make its second advance royalty payment of $1,000,000 due to the Company.

The second advance royalty payment of $1,000,000 is now due in full on or before May 30, 2018.
The advance royalty payments come from the sale of the Kenville Gold Mine project (“Kenville”) located in southeastern British Columbia to private company, 0995237 on April 30th, 2014. The Company sold Kenville as it changed its focus from pursuing mining efforts to a fully engaged exploration company focused in Sweden. Total consideration for the sale of Kenville was $5,900,000 which was partially satisfied by the delivery $900,000 on closing, with the remaining $5,000,000 to be satisfied by five (5) advance royalty payments of $1,000,000 each. The payment of the remaining $5,000,000 is secured by a Royalty Agreement registered on title to Kenville and a Specific Security Agreement registered under the Personal Property Registry, British Columbia. The Company received the first advance royalty payment of $1,000,000 in 2017.
