Aldever Acquires Lac Villebon Gold Project In Val-D'Or Mining Camp
Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / October 21, 2015 - Aldever Resources Inc. (ALD--TSXV) (ALDVF--OTCQB) (17G1--Frankfurt) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with an arms'-length vendor to acquire a 100% interest in the Lac Villebon Gold Project ("the Project") located in the Val-d'Or mining camp, Quebec. The Lac Villebon Gold project covers an area of approximately 855 hectares on the western shore of Lac Villebon, and the Project's mineral claims are contiguous with the southern border of Alexandria Minerals' Cadillac Break Property Group. The Project is 31 kilometres southeast of the historic Sigma and the Lamaque Mines, which are currently controlled by Integra Gold Corp. and produced ~ 9.1M oz Au*. The Lac Villebon Gold Project is also ~18km southeast of Agnico Eagle Mines Limited's Akasaba West Mine, which was acquired from Alexandria Minerals Corporation in 2014 and hosts an indicated gold resource* of approximately 200,000 oz Au. Other active companies in the immediate area include Glencore (GLNCY), 1.5km to the south, and Monarques Gold Corp. (MQR-V) and Cartier Resources Inc. (ECR-V) to the northeast. The project is easily accessible year-round by the Trans-Canada Highway and is a 40 minute drive from the city of Val-d'Or.
*These estimates of gold production and resources are sourced from publically available materials from other companies active in the Val' d'Or Mining Camp and are not located on the Lac Villebon Property Alderver has not undertaken any independent investigation of the production/resource estimates nor has independently analyzed the publically available results.
The principle target at the Lac Villebon Gold project is an approximate five kilometer strike-length of a regional fault which intersects the Cadillac Break, a major tectonic zone, characterized by intense shearing near the contact between the Pontiac Group and the Malartic Group lithological packages. The Cadillac Break is considered the most important metallogenic features in the Val-d'Or mining camp, as several past producers (e.g. East Malartic, Barnat-Sladen, and O'Brien) and recent discoveries such as Agnico Eagle's Lapa and Goldex Mines are spatially associated with the Cadillac Break and/or related subsidiary structures.
Aldever can earn a 100% interest in the Lac Villebon Gold Project by issuing to the vendor 2,000,000 common shares within 5 days of TSX Venture Exchange Approval and incurring $2,000,000 in qualifying exploration expenditures over a five year period. A 1% GOR (Gross Overriding Royalty) has been granted to the vendor, of which 0.5% may be purchased by Aldever for $1,000,000. This transaction is subject to TSX Venture Exchange Approval.
President Clive Massey commented, "The Board is extremely excited about its entry into the Val-d'Or Mining Camp, which is, without exception, one of Canada's most prolific mining camps."
