Great Bear Resources Ltd. (GBR:TSX.V; GTBDF:OTCQX) announced in a news release it plans to create and spin out to shareholders a 2% net smelter return (NSR) royalty on any potential future mineral production at its Dixie property in Ontario's Red Lake District.
The company will first put the NSR royalty in a wholly owned subsidiary, or spinco, then at a time to be determined by the board of directors, distribute the shares to Great Bear shareholders on a pro rata basis.

Further details about the royalty arrangement will be announced when they become available.
