ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Dec. 7, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) announced that it has entered into an agreement to purchase a 100% interest in four mining claims comprising part of the Veronneau Gold Property (the "Property"), located in the Eeyou Istchee/Baie-James Territory, 135 kilometres north of the town of Matagami in the Province of Québec.
The Property is covering an area of approximately 216.56 hectares (2 km2) on the Colomb-Chaboullié volcanic belt. Historical work on the Property was last carried out by Cambiex in 1994 and showcased a drill intersection with results of 8.37 Au g/t (ppm) over a width of 3.9 metres consisting of pyrrhotite stringers (10-15%) in silicified metabasalts (the "Lac Marcaut Showing"). Additional positive intersections made by Cambiex obtained results of 7.0 Au g/t (ppm) over a width of three (3) metres and 6.90 Au g/t (ppm) over a width of two (2) metres. The foregoing historical information is derived from a report filed by Cambiex Exploration with the Ministère de l'Énergie et Ressources Naturelle (Québec) (the "MERN") in 1994 (reference: Riopel, Jules, Rapport technique des travaux, campagne 1994, propriété Lac Marcaut, Cambiex Exploration - GM 53629).
An electromagnetic survey highlighted the continuity of the auriferous mineralization up to two kilometres south-west of the Lac Marcaut Showing. Additionally, the Lac Marcaut Showing is located approximately 13.7 kilometres to the north-east of the new Veronneau gold showing located in the same stratigraphic unit (see X-Terra Resources' press release dated November 22, 2016).
Pursuant to the acquisition agreement, X-Terra Resources will acquire a 100% ownership interest in four mining claims from two prospectors (collectively, the "Vendors"). In consideration for the acquisition of the mining claims, X-Terra Resources will pay an aggregate amount of $10,000 to the Vendors and will the issue to each of the Vendors 75,000 common shares of X‑Terra Resources at a deemed price per share of $0.26. All the mining claims to be acquired by X-Terra Resources will be subject to a 2% net smelter return royalty in favor of the Vendors. X-Terra Resources may, at any time, purchase 50% of the net smelter return royalty from the Vendors for $1,000,000.
The transaction with the Vendors is subject to all regulatory approvals, including that of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The reader must be aware that the above technical information relating to the mining claims has been obtained from a report filed by Cambiex Exploration with the MERN (reference: Riopel, Jules, Rapport technique des travaux, campagne 1994, propriété Lac Marcaut, Cambiex Exploration - GM 53629). Much of this historical information has not been verified by X-Terra Resources' staff but is believed to be reliable. Therefore the historical information should be treated and viewed as uncertain until further exploration has been carried out on the Property.
