Puma wants to thank the Province again for their support for mining exploration in New Brunswick.
The option agreement covers the Fe Bloom Project (Claim Block 8765) located in Northern New Brunswick. All the claims are in good standing until May 2019. Puma is obligated to keep the claims in good standing.
Puma will acquire a 100% interest in the Fe Bloom claims by:

- $25,000 on or before the 1st anniversary,
- $75,000 on or before the 2nd anniversary,
