Novawest Resources Inc. - Acquisition Firecracker Gold Project - Ontario



    VANCOUVER, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - Novawest Resources Inc. (TSXV - "NVE";
Frankfurt - "NWN"), is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Firecracker
Gold Project situated in Catherine Township near Kirkland Lake and Larder
Lake, Ontario. The Firecracker Project consists of twenty mineral claims
totaling 78 claim units.
    Novawest has arranged to purchase a 100% interest in the project by
paying the Vendors a total of twenty-five thousand and one hundred dollars and
two-hundred and fifty thousand commons shares of Novawest. The shares being
issued will be subject to a four month hold period. Of the total purchase
price, ten thousand dollars and one hundred thousand shares will be paid upon
the completion of the first positive geological report Novawest produces on
the property. The property will be subject to a 3% Net Smelter Return (NSR) in
favour of the Vendors. Novawest may purchase one-half of the NSR for
one million-five hundred thousand dollars and also has been granted a first
right of refusal on the remainder of the NSR. All of the terms of the purchase
are subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
    Such prolific gold camps as Kirkland Lake and Larder Lake, that have
produced millions of ounces of gold to date, are very favorable for gold
exploration. They offer an excellent opportunity to make world class
discoveries. These camps are located in the Abitibi greenstone belt which
contains the other near-by productive gold mining districts of Timmins,
Rouyn-Noranda, and Val d'Or. Collectively all of these gold mining camps form
the Golden triangle, which historically has produced approximately
three-quarters of Canada's gold production.
