The Vancouver-based mining company said in a press release Friday that the options were granted to directors, officers and consultants under its stock option plan.
Shares of Canamex closed at C$0.05 in Friday’s Canadian trading.
Canamex is also active in blockchain, having signed an agreement last year with Oslo, Norway-based Harmonychain AS for ethereum blockchain cryptographic security tokens. The tokens, assets backed by gold and silver royalties and metal streams, are an alternative means of raising capital, potentially without equity dilution, according to Canamex.
In October, Canamex launched a security token offering (STO) of SILVERUSA Ethereum ERC20 tokens.
The company added in the press release that it's moving toward permitting and development at the Bruner gold and silver project in Nye County, Nevada, after completing in 2016 what it said was a positive preliminary economic assessment.
A second asset for Canamex is the Silverton property, a gold exploration project in Nevada. According to the company, the project has geological similarities to the Long Canyon deposit in Nevada, which is being mined by Newmont Mining Corp (NYSE:NEM).
