HIGHGOLD MINING ACQUIRES THREE ADDITIONAL GOLD PROPERTIES AT MUNRO-CROESUS PROJECT, TIMMINS REGION, ONTARIO
Highgold Mining Inc. has acquired three mineral properties surrounding the company's Munro-Croesus gold project, located in the greater Timmins region, Ontario. The acquisitions are part of a continuing effort by the company to assemble and consolidate claims at Munro-Croesus (see news release dated Dec. 14, 2020) that are now up to 32 square kilometres (3,187 hectares) in size. The project is adjacent to Highway 101 in the heart of the Abitibi greenstone belt, Canada's premier gold mining jurisdiction, with over 200 million ounces of historical gold production.
"In the past year, we have completed 10 separate property acquisitions surrounding Munro-Croesus for a tenfold increase in the size of the project area," commented president and chief executive officer Darwin Green. "The continuing assembly and consolidation of these claims has allowed Highgold to establish one of the dominant landholdings in this highly prospective and productive region of the greater Timmins gold camp."
Highgold, through its wholly owned subsidiary, entered three separate agreements with various arm's-length vendors to acquire an aggregate of 12 single-cell mining claims, three patented mining claims and one leasehold property consisting of four mining claims covering a total area of approximately four square kilometres (398 hectares) in the Timmins region, Ontario. In consideration of the acquisitions and subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, as applicable, the company has made, or agreed to make, cash payments in the aggregate amount of $200,000 and $150,000 (U.S.) to the vendors and issued an aggregate of 60,000 common shares of the company to the vendors. Pursuant to the agreements, the acquired properties are subject to certain net smelter return royalties, a portion of which may be purchased back by the company.
