Puma Exploration Inc., PUMA-TSXV, has increased its land package at the Triple Fault Gold Project in New Brunswick, Atlantic Province of Canada.
Puma Exploration Inc., (TSXV:PUMA), (“Puma”) has increased its land package at the Triple Fault Gold Project in New Brunswick, Atlantic Province of Canada. Puma added, by staking, six (6) additional claim blocks comprising 180 new claim units for a total of 3,590 hectares, all located contiguous to the initial Williams Brook Gold property boundary. The claims were selected following a newly discovered cluster of rusty quartz boulders found during the initial ongoing reconnaissance program. Altered felsic volcanic floats were also found in this area. The Williams Brook Gold property now covers more than 26,000 hectares and Puma is the biggest landholder in the area.
“It is very encouraging to see the abundance of rusty quartz boulders occurring along an inferred mineralized trend over a length now of approximately 3.8 km. Open ground approximately 1 km northeast along the mineralized trend from the cluster of the rusty quartz boulders found were staked and we decided to increase the property to secure the highly prospective trend, but also over the entire land package,’’ notes Marcel Robillard, President, CEO of Puma Exploration.
PUMA EXPLORATION ARRANGES $450,000 PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Puma is undertaking a non-brokered private placement of units, for a maximum of $450,000. Pursuant to the placement, Puma is offering a maximum of 4.5 million units at a price of 10 cents per unit. Each Unit is comprised of one (1) flow-through common share (a “Flow-Through Common Share”) and one half (1/2) common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 per Warrant Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the Closing Date.
The company will use the proceeds of the offering for the exploration program currently in progress on the Triple Fault Gold Project. The shares and warrants issued under the offering will be subject to a holding period of four (4) months and one day following the closing.
TRIPLE FAULT GOLD AREA
Puma is currently focusing its field work on its flagship TRIPLE FAULT GOLD PROJECT in New Brunswick. The initial phase of the program incorporates large detailed prospecting, mapping, trenching, and stripping focused over the entire Williams Brook Gold property of the Triple Fault Gold Project.
The Triple Fault Gold Project includes four (4) properties named Williams Brook Gold, Jonpol Gold, Rocky Brook, and Portage Lake and controls more than 25,000ha of favorable gold exploration. There are many gold occurrences and float with up-to 50.8 g/t Au, 40 g/t Au, 28 g/t Au, 17 g/t Au and previous holes intersected 11.2 g/t over 2.8m, 8.02 g/t Au over 1.0m, 1.0 g/t over 23.0m, 3.46 g/t Au over 2.0m. There has been very limited drilling and exploration in the area with excellent access by the paved Route 180 close to the mining camp infrastructure. The Dunnage Zone hosts major gold deposits and gold occurrences in siluro-devonian host rocks with the emergence of many companies in Eastern Canada for gold exploration and development.
