MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/13 -- Donner Metals Ltd.
("Donner" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DON)(FRANKFURT:D4M) reports
that it, Sandstorm Metals & Energy Ltd. ("Sandstorm") and an
affiliate of Sandstorm have amended and restated the Metal Purchase
Agreement dated as of July 12, 2011 and as further amended and
restated as of November 1, 2012 among the Company, Sandstorm and the
affiliate of Sandstorm (the "Metal Purchase Agreement") to, amongst
others, waive the requirement for Donner to sell copper to Sandstorm
Metals during the 2013 calendar year. This amendment has been made in
order to better allow Donner to meet its working capital obligations
that arise under the Development and Operating Agreement (the
"Development Agreement") dated as of July 12, 2011 by and between
Glencore Xstrata plc, formerly Xstrata Canada Corporation - Xstrata
Zinc Canada Division and Donner.  
The Company continues to actively pursue various alternatives
encompassing potential financings in order to carry on with the
development of its properties and to meet its obligations, including
the Company's obligation to fund its share of ongoing monthly capital
and operating cash calls for the Bracemac-McLeod mine (which will be
offset by the proceeds of financing and ongoing revenues which have
started in June) contained in the Development Agreement.  
The Company also announces that its Board of Directors has initiated
a process to identify, examine and consider a range of strategic
alternatives available to the Company with a view to enhance value of
all stakeholders. It is the Company's current intention not to
disclose developments with respect to the process unless and until
the Board of Directors has approved a specific transaction or
otherwise determines that disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
