TSX VENTURE: PAC
VANCOUVER, March 1, 2019 /CNW/ - Pacton Gold Inc. (TSXV: PAC, OTC: PACXF) (the "Company" or "Pacton") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent ("LOI") to acquire a 100% interest in the Tardarinna Gold Project. The acquisition of this strategic and prospective property, significantly enhances Pacton's exposure to high-grade, shear-hosted gold within the Pilbara in Western Australia. Exploration targeting is underway and will be followed by field-based exploration across the property.
Tardarinna Gold Project Acquisition Highlights:
- Up to 328 g/t Au has been reported by historical surface samples
- Shallow eluvial gold workings identified in the south eastern quadrant of Project
- Large target locations: Pegmatoidal-quartz veins have been delineated within a shear zone with >1 km strike and ranging between 10 to 50 m wide
- Underexplored: property has never been drill tested
- Tier one jurisdiction: Located in the Pilbarra region of Western Australia
Alec Pismiris, Interim President and CEO, of Pacton Gold, commented, "Acquiring the Tardarinna gold project will greatly enhance our exposure to high-grade, shear-hosted gold mineralization. This is a property with considerable advantages: it has historical samples of impressively high-grade gold, it is underexplored and has never been drill-tested and it is located in a stable jurisdiction with superb access to infrastructure. We look forward to defining the potential scale of Tardarinna."
Under the terms of the LOI, which will be formalized by a definitive agreement, the Company will acquire a 100% interest in Tardarinna by the issuance of 1,250,000 common shares.
This transaction is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
