August 27, 2018 – Vancouver, BC - Vangold Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “Vangold”) (TSXV:VAN) (OTC:VGLDF) is pleased to announce the signing of a binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Intermont Resource LLC (“Intermont”), pursuant to which Vangold is to acquire 100% interest in Intermont Resources LLC’s assets, which encompass 18 mineral properties in northern Nevada (the “Transaction”). These properties comprise 5,548 mining claims both recorded and staked with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), totaling over 46,000 hectares. Most of the properties are located near or adjacent to known gold deposits or mines.
An initial cash payment of $100,000 USD and issuance of $200,000 USD worth of Vangold common shares is to be made on closing the Transaction and an additional $400,000 USD in value will be paid out over 4 installments over the 24 months following closing, payable in Vangold common shares. The price of all common shares to be issued by Vangold pursuant to the Transaction is to be based on a 10-day VWAP prior to closing of the Transaction. Principals of Intermont will retain a “Success Fee” based on realized Au ounces determined by PEA and a 2% net smelter royalty (NSR) of which one percent can be purchased for $3.0 million USD.
Cameron King, CEO of Vangold Mining, commented: “We are pleased with the results of our negotiations and finalizes the acquisition for a highly scientific selection of properties. The data indicates a strong potential for material deposits in several of these anomalies.”
The Intermont properties were generated by integrating regional tectonic analysis and range geologic mapping with geophysics, geochemistry and geobotany. Many targets are on pediment, concealed beneath shallow gravel. Such pediments have been underexplored in Nevada and are likely to host the next discoveries. Examples of such concealed pediment ore bodies include Barrick’s (ABX:NYSE) Pipeline Mine, a Carlin-type deposit along the Cortez trend and Paramount Gold’s (PGZ:NYSE) Sleeper Mine, a resource of low-sulfidation epithermal vein deposit, in the Awakening district. Intermont has 950 mining claims (totaling over 7,900 hectares) on three sides of the Sleeper high-grade gold deposit. The Intermont “Sleeper Project” will be one of Vangold’s drilling priorities.
The following figure shows the location of the Intermont claim blocks and nearby known deposits or mines. Seven priority properties are located along strike on mineral-controlling structures at Sleeper, Sandman, Spring Valley, Relief Canyon, Twin Creeks, Phoenix and Hollister. The targets and the nearby deposits are a mix of low sulfidation epithermal vein gold/silver deposits, Carlin- type sediment-hosted gold deposits and Phoenix-type copper-gold skarn deposits. Five Intermont projects have approved drilling permits, are fully bonded with the BLM and ready to drill.
The Intermont projects were generated by founder and president M. C. Newton, III, PhD, CPG, an economic geologist with 30+ years of experience in mineral exploration, who has held senior technical and management positions with several mineral resource companies and consulting firms. Dr. Newton will join Vangold, manage exploration on the Intermont projects and lead the development of Vangold’s Mexican projects.
The Transaction is conditional upon the parties receiving all requisite regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and any third party approvals and authorizations.
