Option Agreement Amendment
Explorex has reached an agreement with Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. to re-amend the terms of the option agreement as previously announced in a press release dated November 21, 2016. Explorex has agreed to issue 300,000 shares of the Company on or before May 11, 2017 as part of the ongoing due diligence process. Pursuant to the agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Property an additional 300,000 shares will be issuable by July 31, 2018 and 500,000 by Jan 31, 2019.
"We are pleased to be able to extend the field component of our due diligence phase to July 31 as it will greatly facilitate the efficient deployment of field staff and in conducting the work. The good access, and historical high grades make Silver Dollar a premium project that has never been subjected to modern exploration over the bulk of the 10 km strike length. "We look forward to completing this next phase of work and to finalize a work programme for the 2017 field season that will target the Project's rich potential" stated Bill Wishart, President.
About the Silver Dollar Property
The Silver Dollar property is located approximately 45 km southeast of Revelstoke B.C. and covers approximately 10 km of the 40 km Camborne Fault system, a region that hosts over 85 mineral deposits and showings, including 18 past producing historic mines. Explorex has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Property and is currently conducting due diligence. The Property has been divided for ease of reference into three map areas: the southern portion referred to as Gilman (referenced in this press release), Mohawk (central) and Goldfinch (northern).
The Gilman prospect reportedly shipped fourteen tonnes of mineralized material in 1933 grading 69.9 g/t Au and 89.1 g/t Ag. In 1947 the Silver Pass Development Syndicate was reported to have processed six tonnes of mineralized material and recovered 9,860 g of silver, 1,378 kg of lead, and 1,009 kg of zinc from the Silver Dollar prospect. Fragmented exploration and underground development work occurred intermittently through the 1950s due to the presence of multiple small claim owners. Limited historical drilling is reported to be relatively shallow in depth and was selectively sampled. Anomalous intersections remain open along strike and down dip. Several styles of mineralization occur from gold-bearing iron sulphides to silver-rich galena and sphalerite.
