CANEX Metals Completes Option of New Gold Discovery In Arizona and Stakes Additional Claims
TSX VENTURE: CANX
CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / June 13, 2019 / CANEX Metals Inc. ("CANEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a formal option agreement with a US based prospector to acquire a 100% interest in the Gold Range Property located in northern Arizona, USA.
The Gold Range Property occurs within a larger district that has seen historic small-scale lode and placer gold production but limited modern lode gold exploration. Earlier this year a prospector using a hand-held metal detector discovered a quartz vein containing abundant visible gold concealed under shallow soil cover. From May 30th to June 5th CANEX personnel staked and recorded 11 additional lode mining claims covering prospective ground surrounding the new discovery and conducted preliminary geologic fieldwork. Numerous quartz veins and historic workings were examined, and 39 rock samples and 50 soil samples collected. The samples have been submitted for assay with results expected in about 3 weeks.
CANEX is currently preparing a permit application for a trenching program designed to expose and extend the new gold discovery and test a number of other prospective targets identified during recent fieldwork. Geophysical surveying and drilling will be included in the permit application. Additional property details and photographs of the new gold discovery will be added to the CANEX website shortly.
Terms of the Option
The Option Agreement gives CANEXCO Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CANEX Metals, the exclusive right, at its election, to acquire a 100% interest in the Gold Range Property from the Vendor by making staged cash payments over 4 years totaling US$90,000 and completing exploration expenditures of US$80,000. The Vendor will retain a 2% net smelter royalty, half of which can be bought back by CANEX for US$500,000, and the remaining half can be bought back for an additional US$1,000,000.
