VANCOUVER, Sept. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Redtail Metals Corp. (TSX-V: RTZ) (the "Company") announces that it has commenced drilling on its R15
Property, recently acquired from Kaska Minerals Corp. The Company has
also closed the non-brokered private placement announced on August 23,
2012 for gross proceeds to the Company of $1,000,000.
The R15 Project consists of a Yukon Government Lease of Mining Rights to
the Kaska Minerals Corp oration covering 4,304 hectares of land set
aside for the Ross River Dena Council. Redtail has an option to acquire
a 95% participating interest in the R15 Project (see RTZ News Release
of August 23, 2012), and has also entered into an Exploration
Memorandum of Understanding and Traditional Knowledge Protocol with the
Ross River Dena Council governing the R15 Project.
R15 is located approximately 120 km ESE of Ross River and approximately
25 km southwest of the Robert Campbell Highway within the prolific
Finlayson Lake District; a crescent-shaped portion of the Yukon Tanana
Terrane (YTT) located in the south-eastern part of the Yukon Territory
that hosts numerous other volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposits
including the high-grade, poly-metallic Wolverine deposit, the Kudz Ze
Kayah deposit, and the GP4F deposit.
In 2004, Teck Cominco Limited optioned the R15 Property from Kaska
Minerals and drilled 7 diamond drill holes on the property. Four of the
drill holes outlined a new discovery by intersecting a mineralized
horizon highlighted by 3.4 m of 15.84% Zn, 7.09% Pb, 0.2% Cu, 68 g/t
Ag, 0.268 g/t Au in R04-006. No follow up drilling has been conducted
since Teck's initial discovery.
The R15 Project is adjacent to, and along strike with, Teck's GP4F
project (historical resource estimate of 1.5 million tonnes of 6.4% Zn,
3.1% Pb, 90 g/t Ag, 2 g/t Au (1) and hosts massive sulphide mineralization that is geologically similar
to the GP4F. The R15 mineralization may represent the continuation of
the GP4F horizon along strike.
The R15 mineralization consists of a 1-3m thick horizon of massive
sulphide hosted within Mississippian-aged felsic metavolcanic and
metasediments of the Kudz Ze Kayah Formation within the Grass Lakes
Succession. The horizon consists of massive to brecciated and
recrystallized sphalerite, galena, magnetite, pyrrhotite, and
chalcopyrite with minor silica, plagioclase, + chlorite and biotite gangue. The immediate footwall consists of
variably altered chlorite, biotite, quartz, muscovite altered crystal
tuff with strong sulphide disseminations and veins.
In September 2012 Redtail will complete an initial drill program focused
on expanding the initial discovery made by Teck in 2004.
The Company has closed the non-brokered private placement announced on
August 23, 2012. A total of 10,000,000 units were issued at a price of
$0.10 per unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $1,000,000. Each
unit consists of one common share and one half of one non-transferable
share purchase warrant, each full warrant entitling the holder to
acquire an additional common share at a price of $0.15 until September
27th, 2013. Finders' fees totalling $32,150 were paid on closing. All
securities issued pursuant to this private placement are subject to a
trading hold period expiring on January 28th, 2013.
The proceeds from the private placement will be used for expenditures
under the R15 agreements, exploration of the Company's mineral
properties, the final payment for the Company's Marg Property, and for
general working capital purposes.
Shares for Debt
The Company also announces that, subject to receipt of the approval of
the TSX Venture Exchange, it has issued 4,800,000 common shares at a
deemed price of $0.10 per share in satisfaction of approximately
$480,000 of outstanding indebtedness owed to certain creditors,
pursuant to a debt settlement agreement. The common shares that will be
issued in connection with the debt settlement agreement are subject to
a hold period of four-months plus one day from the date of issuance.
