NioGold Mining Corporation (TSXV:NOX,OTCQX: NOXGF) acquired Republic Goldfields Inc. on April 11, 2012 for $100,000 cash and 1,000,000 common shares.

As quoted in the press release:

The acquisition of RGF’s Malartic mining titles completes the consolidation of the historic Malartic Hygrade property, part of the Company’s large Malartic gold camp land holdings. The Malartic Hygrade property covers the northwest extent of geological units and deformation corridors that host the gold deposits on the adjoining Marban Block property currently being evaluated by NioGold and Aurizon Mines Ltd. The historic Malartic Hygrade property encompasses the former Malartic Hygrade mine (production: 23,223 t @ 22.67 g/t Au for 17,000 ounces gold, Trudeau and Raymond, 1982 ) and the Orion Zone #8 (production: 118,922 t @ 5.82 g/t Au for 22,000 ounces gold, Trudeau and Raymond, 1982) as well as the depth extent of the former Camflo mine, where Barrick Gold Corporation produced 1.7 million ounces of gold (8.86 Mt @ 5.8 g/t Au) between 1965 and 1992. Of those ounces, 180,000 were extracted from the Malartic Hygrade property in the lower levels of the mine. Historic records of the Camflo mine indicate that a mineral inventory of 68,000 ounces of gold remains un-mined (LaBreque and Violette, 2011). This mineral inventory is considered historical in nature; has not been validated by the Company’s Qualified Person or an independent Qualified Person; is not compliant with National Instrument 43-101 and should not be relied upon.
