Logan Completes Initial Earn-In on Four Gold Properties in Nevada, USA

/EINPresswire.com/ -- VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 22, 2017) - Logan Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: LGR) ("Logan" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the initial earn-in on four gold properties from the Option Agreement (the "Option Agreement") dated July 7, 2016 between Liberty Gold (USA) Corp. ("Liberty Gold") and Logan. Logan has satisfied the conditions of the Option Agreement and has earned a 51% participating interest in the following four properties, all located in Nevada, USA: (i) Brik, (ii) Viper, (iii) Antelope, and (iv) Easter. Logan now has the option to earn a participating interest of up to 80% on the four properties.

The Brik property is located in the Cedar Range of Lincoln County, Nevada. The Hidden Treasure target on the Brik property contains multiple zones of gold mineralization in quartz veins, silicified andesite, and breccia zones. The November 2016 drill program at Brik confirmed the presence of significant oxide gold both in the near-surface and at depth (results previously announced in news release March 1, 2017).

The Viper property is located in eastern Elko County, Nevada. Gold mineralization on the Viper property is related to the presence of quartz-calcite veins and vein stockworks. Individual veins exhibit spectacular bladed and lattice epithermal textures and free gold is visible in a number of outcrops on the property. Logan has consolidated the greater part of the Viper District by signing a Mining Lease and Purchase Option Agreement (the "Angel Wing Agreement") to acquire a lease of the Angel Wing Property and the digital database for these claims.

The Antelope property is located in northern White Pine County, Nevada. Significant concentrations of gold occur in two sediment-hosted jasperoid zones with even higher concentrations of gold associated with dike margins and fault zones. The Antelope property is located within an 80 kilometer radius of four modern gold mines. The results of the recent drilling campaign at Antelope (announced in news release June 20, 2017) will be the subject of an upcoming news release.

The Easter property is located in the Eastern Calderas of Lincoln County, Nevada. Previous exploration programs on the Easter property focused on a limited segment of the outcropping epithermal vein system, eventually outlining a NI 43-101 resource, but the deposit remains unconfined and unexplored down-dip.

Logan has returned the following properties to Liberty Gold: (i) Drum, (ii) Griffon, (iii) Sandy, (iv) Stateline, and (v) Anchor.

Terms of the Option Agreement

  • Logan can earn a 70% interest in the four selected properties by incurring additional expenditures of US$2 million within 36 months of the closing date, and arranging for one million common shares of Logan to be delivered to Liberty Gold.
  • Logan will then have the additional option to earn an 80% interest in any of the selected properties for which it completes a pre-feasibility study.

Logan and Pilot Gold will form a joint venture once Logan earns 80% interest in a selected property, or earlier if Logan declines to exercise its additional interest options. Each party will thereafter be responsible for its pro rata share of expenditures on the selected property.

The technical information within this document has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Craig S. Bow, Vice President Exploration for Logan. Dr. Bow is a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101.
