MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 7, 2012) - Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company") (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce the signature of a purchase and sale agreement with Vantex Resources Ltd ("Vantex") (TSX VENTURE:VAX)(FRANKFURT:UD7A) dated November 2nd, 2012 through which Vantex can acquire a 100% interest in the Lac Fortune West Gold Property ("Lac Fortune West" or the "Property"). The Property comprises 17 claims for a total surface area of 3.7 km² and is situated in the Rouyn-Noranda mining camp, in Quebec, Canada.
Vantex will complete the Lac Fortune West acquisition by paying Golden Share $100,000 in cash and issuing to Golden Share 1,000,000 common shares in Vantex's capital. Golden Share will also retain a 1% NSR in the Property.
Lac Fortune West is strategically located on the Cadillac fault, 25 km west of Rouyn Noranda. It is easily accessible by national road 117 which passes just south of the Property. Lac Fortune West is directly adjoining Vantex's Galloway project where several gold targets are being developed, and notably the recent Moriss discovery which returned 8.21 g/t Au over 22.50 m to a depth of 106 m in initial Vantex drilling. In August 2012, Vantex announced a drill intercept of 59.51 g/t Au over 6.20 m to a depth of 64.20 m in the N1 zone which is part of the Moriss discovery. In October 2012, mining executive and investor Rob McEwen increased his stake in Vantex by 500,000 shares bringing his total investment to 7.8 million shares or about 12% of the company.
Philippe Giaro, President and CEO, stated "We are very pleased to conclude this transaction with Vantex as they aggressively keep developing this part of the Abitibi belt in Quebec while we are focusing on our Ontario properties. Lac Fortune West is located about 8 km to the east of the Moriss discovery in a different part of the rock sequence but nevertheless provides Vantex with the opportunity to build their position in the belt. Golden Share meanwhile obtains immediate leverage in the play through shares in Vantex and retains a long term interest with an NSR. We look forward to this new relationship as Vantex conducts additional drilling to further unlock the potential of this promising area for the benefit of all shareholders".
The transaction remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
