VANCOUVER, Oct. 21, 2015 /CNW/ - Zimtu Capital Corp. (TSXv: ZC; FSE: ZCT1) (the "Company" or "Zimtu") is pleased to announce that the Company has signed an option agreement with Pistol Bay Mining Inc. (TSXv: PST) ("Pistol Bay") whereby Pistol Bay can acquire a 100%-interest in 40 claims (1,000 hectares) in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. These claims will be added to Pistol Bays' existing Garland Peninsula Group.
This newly acquired 40 claim (1,000 hectare) licence is underlain by mafic intrusive rocks including gabbro, norite and anorthosite. These rocks belong to the same general suite of intrusives that host the Voisey's Bay nickel-copper-cobalt deposit. The Garland project of Equitas Resources Corp. is five kilometres to the northwest.
Limited historic work was completed on the property during 1995-1996, when the claims formed part of Cominco's Merrifield project. Cominco carried out an airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey which revealed weak conductors that were apparently not explained by any observations at surface. Cominco then carried out prospecting on the Merrifield property and located disseminated sulphide mineralization containing up to 0.154% copper and 0.220% nickel.
For its participation in the transaction, Zimtu will receive staged cash and share payments from Pistol Bay as follows: (i) $2,500 on signing; (ii) 500,000 common shares within five days of TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXv") approval; (iii) $2,500 within five days of TSXv approval; (iv) 750,000 common shares 12 months from the date of TSXv acceptance; (v) $10,000 within 12 months from the date of TSXv acceptance. Zimtu will retain a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty on the Property.
The claims were originally acquired by the Company by staking. Zimtu, along with its prospecting partners, continue to evaluate and acquire prospective resource properties to make available for sale or joint venture. As part of the Company's business, Zimtu provides mineral property advisory services and helps to connect companies with mineral properties of interest.
