VANCOUVER, Nov. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Bolero Resources Corp. (the "Company" or
"Bolero"), (TSX-V: BRU), (FRANKFURT: U7N) is pleased to announce that it has
entered into a Term Facility with Auramet Trading, LLC of Fort Lee, New Jersey
("Auramet"), pursuant to which Auramet will, subject to satisfaction of
certain conditions precedent including receiving consents from all applicable
regulatory authorities, lend the sum of US$10 million (the "Loan"). The Loan
proceeds will be used by the Company for the acquisition of certain private
surface and mineral rights (including patented claims) that include the Silver
Creek molybdenum project and other copper-gold occurrences located in the
Pioneer Mining District, Dolores County, Colorado approximately 20 miles
southwest of Telluride and just east of Rico. The acquisition is subject to
the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent and is scheduled to close on
or about November 16, 2007.
"We are pleased to have Auramet's support. With this Loan facility, we
will have eliminated the funding risk for the purchase of the Silver Creek
assets in Rico Colorado," states Bolero's President and CEO R. Bruce Duncan.
"Furthermore, this one year facility will allow the Company sufficient time to
evaluate other financing initiatives."
Additionally, a technical report on the Silver Creek Property compliant
with the Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 43-101 has
just been completed by Associated Geosciences Ltd. (AGL) and will be filed on
SEDAR by Monday, November 5, 2007.
About the Silver Creek Project:
The Silver Creek molybdenum project was explored by The Anaconda Company
("Anaconda"), from surface and underground during the period 1979 through 1983
with 63,000 feet of drilling completed. In May of 1984, Anaconda reported a
historic inferred resource based on four drill holes of 44 million short tons
(39.9 million tonnes) at a molybdenum ("Mo") grade of 0.31% Mo, or
0.527% MoS2, within a 0.20% molybdenum cut-off, containing 273 million pounds
All resource estimates quoted herein are based on data and reports
obtained and prepared by previous operators. This historic resource
estimate is considered to be relevant, and is believed to be reliable
based on the amount and quality of historic work completed. The Company
has not completed the work necessary to independently verify the
classification of the mineral resource estimates. The Company is not
treating the mineral resource estimates as National Instrument 43-101
defined resources verified by a qualified person. The historical
estimates should not be relied upon. The properties will require
considerable further evaluation which the Company's management and
consultants intend to carry out in due course.
Anaconda estimated the potential of the mineral deposit to be up to
198 million tons (179.6 million tonnes) @ greater than 0.30% Mo (greater than
0.51% MoS2) at a cut-off of 0.20% Mo. This could represent up to 1.2 billion
pounds of contained molybdenum. This estimate of target potential was based on
the inferred mineralization halo greater than 0.20% Mo, structural controls
projected from surface and observed in core, fluorine/tungsten geochemical
signatures and an isopach of Mo mineralization compared with typical Climax
style deposits in Colorado. Anaconda geologists were of the opinion that less
than 20% of the potential Silver Creek resource has been drilled.
The potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and there has
been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is
uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being
delineated as a mineral resource.
Historic drill holes with significant intersections of greater than or
equal to 0.20% Mo cut-off include:
SC-81-1 245 ft @ 0.242 % Mo or 0.411% MoS2
SC-81-5 635 ft @ 0.334 % Mo or 0.568% MoS2(1,2)
SC-81-6 191 ft @ 0.231 % Mo or 0.393% MoS2
SC-82-7A 285 ft @ 0.286 % Mo or 0.486% MoS2
1. Includes 130 ft @ 0.505 % Mo or 0.859 % MoS2
2. At a greater than or equal to 0.30% cut off comprises of
378 ft @ 0.415% Mo or 0.706 % MoS2
