Lake Winn Resources Corp., (the “Company” or “Lake Winn”), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with W.S. Ferreira Ltd. (the “Vendor”) to acquire the Cloud Project in Manitoba, consisting of four mining claims as well as an area of interest (the “Property”).
The Property is being acquired in consideration of: (i) the issuance of 2,000,000 common shares of Lake Winn to the Vendor, (ii) a cash payment to the Vendor in the amount of $265,000 and (iii) the issuance to the Vendor of a net smelter royalty of 2% on production generated on the Property which 1% may be purchased by Lake Winn for a total cash payment to the Vendor in the amount of $1,000,000.
The 1560 ha, the Cloud project is considered a drill ready gold prospect in the Flin Flon gold belt Manitoba. It is situated in excellent infrastructure road 25km of Flin Flon, a mining town with airport service. The main target is >1km long, geochemical anomaly where numerous >10g/t gold grab samples have been retrieved in historic and recent sampling of pits and outcrop of quartz veins hosted in silica and biotite altered volcanics. A geophysical IP and resistivity survey completed in 2009 reveals that the gold bearing rocks occur in the hanging wall below the rock causing the IP. There has been drilling on the property in the past but none where directed at this target. There were some holes drilled to test the IP anomaly in the far west of the property, and they intersected anomalous gold. Other drill holes far from this horizon were drilled on VLF EM anomalies in the search for VMS. In 2009 the Vender staked the property, and optioned it to another junior, this company generated the IP
and resistivity drill targets but due to certain circumstance never committed to drill. The property was returned to the vendor in 2014 and has been held in good standing since.
Lake Winn has commenced the permitting process and plans to drill and trench the gold bearing rocks as soon as permission is granted. Geophysics and prospecting can commence immediately. Samples taken by the Vendor are listed in table 1 below, and those historic samples taken prior too this are listed in table 2.
