LeBoldus Capital Inc. announces results of annual meeting and extension of agreement to acquire prospective uranium property in Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan

    CALGARY, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - LeBoldus Capital Inc. ("LeBoldus" or the
"Corporation") (TSXV: LEB.P) is pleased to announce the results of its annual
meeting, the extension of an agreement to acquire a prospective uranium
property known as the Green Lake Property ("Green Lake" or the "Property") in
north east Saskatchewan, and the details of the proposed acquisition.

    Annual Meeting of Shareholders
    LeBoldus is pleased to announce that all of the directors of the
Corporation were re-elected at the Corporation's annual meeting held July 28,
2009. In addition, shareholders approved the Corporation's stock option plan
and re-appointed Hudson llp as auditors of the Corporation.

    Extension of Green Lake Acquisition
    LeBoldus, a capital pool company, entered into the Green Lake Property
Sale and Purchase Agreement on February 18, 2009 (the "Agreement") with
Kinetex Multi-Component Services Inc. ("Vendor"), an Alberta-based subsidiary
of an arm's length public company, Kinetex Resources Corporation (TSXV:
KTX.V). The Agreement provided for the acquisition of a one hundred percent
(100%) undivided interest in two mineral claims, comprising the Property,
subject to a 2.5% Net Returns Royalty. Consideration for the claims is
$225,000 in cash, of which a $25,000 deposit (the "Deposit") has been paid,
and the issuance of 6,000,000 common shares of the Corporation ("Common
Shares"), at a deemed price of $0.15 per share, within 10 days of the receipt
of closing of the acquisition. This transaction is intended to constitute
LeBoldus' qualifying transaction ("Qualifying Transaction") pursuant to the
applicable policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). The Qualifying
Transaction is not subject to the approval of the shareholders of the
Corporation as it is not a non-arm's length transaction in that the Vendor and
LeBoldus and their respective directors and officers are not related parties
pursuant to applicable securities laws and TSXV policies. The Agreement has
now been amended such that the Deposit is refundable and the Agreement will
terminate if the Qualifying Transaction is not completed by September 30,
    The conditions to be satisfied or completed prior to or upon the
completion of the Qualifying Transaction include the following:

    (a)    the approval of the Qualifying Transaction by any regulatory
           authority having jurisdiction, including the TSXV;
    (b)    LeBoldus being reasonably satisfied with a due diligence review of
           the Property, such due diligence investigation to commence
           immediately and to be completed on or before 15 days from the date
           a geological report, prepared in accordance with National
           Instrument 43-101, is received by LeBoldus;
    (c)    there will have been no material adverse change in the Property,
           or to the Vendor's title to the Property;
    (d)    there being no encumbrances on the Property;
    (e)    there being no current or threatened environmental actions or
           notices or any situation that could give cause for such event; and
    (f)    closing of a private placement of not less than $800,000 to be
           completed at closing of the Qualifying Transaction (the "Private

    The Corporation wishes to announce that, given the significant change in
capital market conditions, the previously announced terms of the non-brokered
Private Placement have been changed to allow for the issuance of 1.3 million
Common Shares at a price of $0.15 per share and 3.7 million Common Shares to
be issued on a flow-through basis at a price of $0.17 per share.
    In connection with the Private Placement, finder's fees may be paid of up
to 10% in cash and up to 10% in warrants, each warrant entitling the holder
thereof to purchase one Common Share at $0.15 per share for a period of 12
    The Corporation intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement
for the completion of the Green Lake Property acquisition, competition of
Phase 1 of the exploration program on the Property (see "Recommended Work
Program for the Green Lake Property" below) and for general working capital
    Following the Qualifying Transaction, the current shareholders of
LeBoldus will hold approximately 18.5% of the issued and outstanding Common
Shares, the new shareholders as a result of the completion of the Private
Placement in conjunction with the Qualifying Transaction will hold
approximately 37% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares and the Vendor
of the Property will hold approximately 44.5% of the issued and outstanding
Common Shares.

    The Green Lake Property
    The following Property description and recommended work program is
provided by Reliance Geological Services Inc. from the geological report
entitled "Technical Report on the Green Lake Property, La Ronge Mining
District, Saskatchewan, Canada" dated August 5, 2009 (the "Report"). The
author, Ed Harrington, B.Sc, P.Geo, is a "qualified person" within the meaning
of National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators and
has reviewed and approved the following disclosure.
    The Green Lake Property consists of a contiguous block of two unsurveyed
mineral dispositions, S-110175 and S-110176, totalling 10,052 ha. The
dispositions are owned as to 100% by the Vendor. Both dispositions are in good
standing to September 25, 2009. Under current legislation, the renewal costs
for the 2009/2010 renewal year are expected to be $48,949. The Vendor
anticipates paying the renewal costs prior to completion of the Qualifying
    The Property is situated along the south-eastern edge of the Athabasca
Basin, approximately 45 kilometres east-southeast of the McArthur River mine,
83 kilometres southwest of the past producing Rabbit Lake uranium mine, 53
kilometres south-southeast of the Cigar Lake uranium mine, and 80 kilometres
south of Hathor Exploration Limited's Roughrider Zone discovery at their
Midwest NE property.
    Access to the Green Lake Property is by helicopter from the settlement of
Points North, Saskatchewan, which is located approximately 53 kilometers
north-northeast of the Property. Float and ski-equipped aircraft can land on
most of the larger area lakes.
    The Property is on relatively flat to gently rolling terrain with
elevations ranging from 420 meters (1,378 feet), along the southern Property
boundary, to 520 meters (1,706 feet) in the north-eastern portion of
disposition S-110175. Vegetation consists of jack pine, alders, and scrub
underbrush. Low areas usually contain standing water and muskeg. Climate is
moderate, with hot dry summers and cold winters. Work season is year round.
    In 1935, pitchblende was discovered on the north shore of Lake Athabasca.
Late in 1968, Gulf Oil made its initial uranium discovery at Rabbit Lake,
where a pitchblende ore body was identified at the unconformity between the
sandstones, conglomerates, and minor mudstones of the Athabasca Basin and the
underlying crystalline metamorphic basement rocks.
    The Property deposit model is uranium mineralization, generally
pitchblende and coffinite, occurring as fracture and breccia fillings, and
disseminations in elongated or tabular zones hosted by
sedimentary/metasedimentary rocks located below, above, or across a major
continental unconformity.
    Property lithology consists of supracrustal meta-sediments intruded by
mafic-ultramafic and granitic rocks, all of which have a general northeasterly
trend. Ultramafic rocks are found in the southern portion of the Property,
while smaller scale granitic intrusions are found in the central and northern
portions. Intrusions, both granitic and mafic-ultramafic, occur primarily
within the more granular supracrustal felsic biotite-gneisses and schists. The
approximate margin between the basement rocks of the Wollaston Domain and the
overlying Athabasca Group sandstones cuts through the northwestern potion of
the Property. North-trending faults cut the east-central Property area, and
northeast-trending small scale folds and shears occur throughout the Property.
    From 1968 through 1981, Gulf Minerals Canada Limited, Mobil Energy
Minerals, and Uranerz Energy Corporation carried out a variety of work
programs on and around the Green Lake Property.
    In Saskatchewan, mineralized areas are identified using an indexed
numbering system, the Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index (SMDI). Three mineral
occurrences, SMDI 1145, 2043, and 2044, are located on or near the Property.
    SMDI 2044 is located on the Property, SMDI 1145 is located approximately
200 meters east of the Property, and SMDI 2043 is located 100 meters to the
west. All three occurrences are classified as having pegmatite-hosted U
mineralization, with SMDI 1145 also showing cerium and yttrium rare earth
mineralization. Historical work on SMDI 2044 showed a number of muskeg
samples, which returned uranium values as high as 750 ppm U, and rock sampling
of radioactive pegmatite outcrops that returned scintillometer readings up to
12,000 cps, and assay values of up to 0.263% U3O8 (0.22% U) and 29 ppm Ni. The
author of the Report has no details concerning sample preparation, analysis,
and sample security regarding the foregoing information.
    In 2007, Fugro Airborne Surveys of Ottawa, Ontario, conducted a
TEMPEST(R) electromagnetic and magnetic survey of the Wheeler-Beckett area.
The Green Lake Property is located in the northern portion of the
    Results from Fugro's magnetic survey show a broad series of
northeast-trending magnetic highs in the northern and southern portions of the
Property. Results from the EM survey show a northeast-trending conductive zone
in the northern portion of the Property, roughly coincident with the mapped
edge of the Athabasca Basin sandstone. Spot conductive highs are scattered
over the central and southern Property area.

    Recommended Work Program for the Green Lake Property
    The Green Lake Property is of sufficient merit to justify the following
three-phase exploration program. Phase 1 work should consist of establishing a
fly-in base camp. Work would include prospecting, geological mapping, and
geochemical rock sampling. The estimated cost of Phase 1 work is $303,000.
    Phase 2 work should consist of a ground geophysical vibroseis-source
seismic survey, and would not be contingent on Phase 1 results. However, Phase
1 results could be used to plan the Phase 2 program. As low ground on the
Property tends to be swampy, the seismic survey should be carried out during
the winter. The estimated cost of Phase 2 work is $1,100,000.
    Phase 3 is contingent upon Phase 1 and/or Phase 2 work showing targets
suitable for follow-up. Phase 3 work should consist of up to five drill holes
averaging 200 meters in depth and totaling 1,000 meters (3,050 feet). Phase 3
drilling is estimated to cost approximately $1,100,000.

    Corporate Structure

will resign upon closing of the Qualifying Transaction. Following the
Qualifying Transaction, the directors and officers of LeBoldus will consist of
Gil Schneider, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Jerome,

applicable, the transaction cannot close until the required shareholder
approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be
completed as proposed or at all.
    Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management
information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the
transaction, any information released or received with respect to the
