Cap-Ex Iron Ore Ltd. (TSX-V: CEV) (“Cap-Ex” or the “Company”) reports it has closed the mineral property exploration rights and sale agreement with TTM Resources Inc. ("TTM") to purchase a 100% interest in three claims (the “Property”) adjoining the southeastern part of the Company’s Aspen Property in the Blackwater region of the Nechako Plateau in British Columbia, as announced on August 18, 2016.
In addition to the purchased claims, TTM has granted Cap-Ex a first right of refusal on six additional claims adjoining Cap-Ex’s Aspen Property to the northwest. These claims host the Chu molybdenum-copper deposit and several gold showings. Pursuant to the exploration right granted under the Purchase Agreement, Cap-Ex has the sole right to explore the claims until November 30, 2017, at which time it must, subject to certain conditions, make an offer regarding option, purchase or joint venture of the claims.
Both properties are located approximately 115 kilometres (kms) southwest of Vanderhoof, in central British Columbia and cover an area of approximately 4,100 hectares. The properties are readily accessible along a well developed network of established forestry roads in the area and 15 kilometres northeast of New Gold Inc.’s 9.5 million ounce Blackwater gold deposit. At the Blackwater deposit, disseminated gold-silver mineralization is associated in shear-hosted veins, hosted in Jurassic-aged Hazelton Group volcanic rhyolites. At the Chu deposit, molybdenite and copper mineralization is associated with an apparent modified quartz veinlet stockwork hosted by hornfelsed fine-grained sandstone and granodioritic intrusive rocks.
Pursuant the terms of the agreement, Cap-Ex, paid TTM $25,000 in cash, issued 250,000 common shares of the Company and granted TTM a 2% NSR on the property. Cap-Ex may, at any time, reduce the NSR to 1.0% by paying the sum of $500,000 to TTM.
All securities issued pursuant to the agreement are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance. This news release has been reviewed by Adrian Smith, Director, and a Qualified Person as that term is defined in NI 43-101.
