THUNDER BAY, ON and VALLENAR, CHILE, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - On February 14, 2013 Red Metal Resources Ltd. (OTCBB:RMES) announced that on February 11, 2013 the Company's subsidiary, Minera Polymet Limitada, had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Geoactivia Spa, ("Geoactivia"). Pursuant to the MOU Geoactivia was granted the right to acquire 100% of the mining concessions group named "Perth" through the execution of a mining option purchase agreement whereby Geoactiva intends to acquire the option to earn 100% interest in the Perth property. To earn 100%, Geoactiva will be required to make payments totaling US$1,000,000 and incur a total of US$3,500,000 in exploration expenditures over a period of four years.
