VANCOUVER, June 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Zimtu Capital Corp. (TSXv: ZC; FSE:
ZCT1) (the "Company" or "Zimtu") is pleased to announce that the
Company and one of its prospecting partners have signed an agreement
with Solace Resources Corp. (TSXv: SOR) ("Solace") whereby Solace can
earn a 100% interest in the Blachford Rare Earth Element ("REE")
Property located in the Northwest Territories approximately 100
kilometres southeast of the city of Yellowknife. The property is
contiguous to Avalon Rare Metals Inc.'s (TSX: AVL; NYSE Amex: AVL)
("Avalon") Thor Lake REE Project.
For its participation in the transaction, Zimtu will receive staged
payments totaling C$100,000 and 1,250,000 common shares over a 18-month
period. Zimtu's partner, 877384 Alberta Ltd. will receive cash and
share consideration equal to that of Zimtu. The vendors will
collectively retain a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty on the property;
1% of which can be purchased by Solace for C$1,000,000. The transaction
is subject to acceptance by the Toronto Venture Exchange ("TSXv"). In
conjunction with the completion of the transaction, a finder's fee will
be payable in accordance with the policies of the TSXv.
The Blachford Property consists of one claim, totaling approximately
1,000 acres, within the north-central part of the Blachford Lake
Intrusive Complex. The Blachford Lake Intrusive Complex measures more
than 10 kilometres in diameter, the largest portion of which is covered
by Avalon's Thor Lake Project. At Thor Lake, five distinct zones of
rare metal mineralization have been identified as being of potential
economic interest: the Nechalacho Deposit and the North T, South T, S
and R Zones. Avalon's current focus is the Nechalacho Rare Metal
Deposit due to its size and enrichment in REEs. Nechalacho is
particularly notable for its enrichment in the valuable heavy REEs such
as europium, terbium and dysprosium, relative to light REEs such as
lanthanum and cerium. The principal rock types in the Blachford Lake
Intrusive Complex are syenites, granites and gabbros and associated
pegmatitic phases hosting rare metal mineralization.
The Blachford Property optioned to Solace is located approximately 1,500
metres northwest of the Nechalacho Deposit, and about 800 metres west
of the North T Zone. The Property was staked by Zimtu and its partner
when it became apparent that the area was open for staking in late
2010. Zimtu and its partner also staked three additional claims (BLAT
01, 03, & 04 together the "BLAT Claims"), which cover approximately
6,000 acres and are contiguous to the north of Avalon's Thor Lake
Property. These claims are currently overlapped by a claim staked by a
competing staker, with the overlapped portions under dispute. Zimtu,
its partner, and Solace have entered into a separate agreement so that
any portion, or if applicable all, of the BLAT Claims that are formally
granted to the Vendors will be added to the Blachford Rare Earth
Property in the formal option agreement to be entered into between the
