Intact Gold Acquires 43-101 Gold Resource Property

VANCOUVER, April 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Intact Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ITG) (FSE: 1A5) (the "Company" or "Intact Gold"), is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement dated April 18, 2016 (the "Agreement") with Caprock Ventures Corp. ("Caprock") to acquire an undivided 100% interest in and to certain mineral properties, together with the surface rights, mineral rights, personal property and permits associated therewith (collectively, the "Guillet Property" or the "Property"), located five kilometres east of the town of Belleterre, Temiscamingue, Quebec.

The Property is comprised of 21 claims covering an area of approximately 600 hectares. The Guillet property covers part of a greenstone belt measuring 50 kilometres by 10 kilometres. The previous Belleterre mine, located fewer than two kilometres northwest of Guillet, produced 2.2 million tons at 10.7 grams per tonne gold (735,000 ounces of gold).

Previous work on the property culminated with a bulk sample taken in 2005-2006 from the Lake Expanse gold zone returned 11,538 tonnes of 3.28 g/t Au. In 2007, a resource estimate was produced and results were as follows: 

  • Measured and indicated: 320,950 tonnes of 2.62 g/t Au;
  • Inferred: 76,570 tonnes of 2.31 g/t Au.

Closing of the Agreement is subject to a number of conditions, including the receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V").

Anthony Jackson of Intact Gold comments: "Intact is excited to acquire an advanced Gold asset such as the Guillet Property. This acquisition falls in line with our current strategy of adding to our portfolio of advanced stage projects."
