TORONTO, March 29 /CNW/ - Marathon Gold Corporation (TSX: MOZ) ("Marathon") announced today its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Marathon ended the year ended December 31, 2010 with a strong balance sheet, with $7.6 million in cash and no debt.

Highlights:

  • Completing an earn-in into a 50% interest in the Valentine Lake property by making a payment of $3,000,000 to Richmont Mines Inc. and triggering the formation of the 50-50 Valentine Lake joint venture with Mountain Lake Resources Inc.
  • Acquiring a 50% interest in Golden Chest LLC, a corporate joint venture with New Jersey Mining Company ("NJMC") established to carry out exploration of the Golden Chest gold mine near Murray, Idaho.
  • Completing an updated resource estimate on Valentine Lake, which included measured and indicated resources of 3.3 million tonnes grading 2.6 g/t gold and an additional inferred resource of 4.4 million tonnes grading 2.0 g/t gold.
  • Closing a private placement in December 2010 of 2,570,000 common shares that raised gross proceeds of $3,366,700, and an additional private placement in March 2011 of 2,528,500 flow-through shares that generated gross proceeds of $4,551,300.

Operating highlights:

Marathon's losses for the three months and years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 are summarized below.

Loss for the year     1,216,724     112,456     2,075,252     495,710

Marathon's losses in these periods include historical exploration expenses attributable to the properties and other assets it acquired from Marathon PGM Corporation ("MPGM") in November 2010 and allocations of other costs incurred by MPGM in the same periods, in accordance with Canadian GAAP applicable to carve-out financial statements.

Marathon's accounting policy is to capitalize property acquisition and exploration costs on its properties once a mineral resource estimate has been completed.  The decrease in exploration expenses in 2010 reflects Marathon's focus of its resources in 2010 on exploring the Valentine Lake project, for which the Company capitalized $3.6 million in costs.

This press release should be read in conjunction with Marathon's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 and the related Management's Discussion and Analysis, both of which are available on www.sedar.com.
