CALGARY, Oct. 21 /CNW/ - Boxxer Gold Corp. (TSX Venture: BXX) ("Boxxer" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce it has obtained an arms length First Right of Refusal ("FRR") on five patented mineral claims and 10 unpatented mineral claims that cover the Chiquita gold property located in the Goodsprings Mining District, southern Nevada. The FRR requires Boxxer to make an US$18,000 payment to the owners of the mineral claims and gives Boxxer until December 31, 2009 to complete any technical due diligence and negotiate an agreement acceptable with the holders of the patented and unpatented mineral claims. There is no guarantee that a formal lease agreement will be entered into by Boxxer and the private companies.
Mr. Elmer Stewart, President and CEO of Boxxer stated, "The mineral claims making up our Boss copper-gold project already surround the Chiquita claims, making it only logical to try to include and evaluate the potential of this property; especially following the recent acquisition of the Crystal Pass unpatented gold claims. The Chiquita claims would be added to our ongoing exploration efforts to assess the overall mineral potential of the Boss Project, and the Goodsprings Mining District." According to Hewitt (1931), very little historical data is publicly available regarding the operation and reported production for the Chiquita property.
