Eagle Plains/Roughrider Execute Option Agreements for Saskatchewan Exploration Projects



Cranbrook, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (“EPL”:TSX-V, or “Eagle Plains”) has executed two separate option agreements with Roughrider Exploration Ltd. (“REL”: TSX-V, or “Roughrider”) whereby REL may earn up to an 80% interest in the Brownell Lake (VMS-polymetallic) and Olson (gold) exploration properties located 120km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan. Property summaries and terms of the option agreements are as follows: 

 

Brownell Lake Summary and Option Agreement Details

 

The Brownell Lake Project is host to regionally-sheared, highly-strained meta-volcanic rocks which are considered to be prospective for volcanogenic massive sulphide (“VMS”) mineralization. Highlight drilling results include 3.35 m of 0.48% Cu, 2.28% Zn, 1.46 g/t Au; 2.2 m of 6% Zn; and 20.5 m of 0.49% Cu. Historic work has delineated a 2600m mineralized EM/magnetic anomaly, with an additional 1700 m of prospective magnetic anomaly that remains untested by electromagnetics and diamond drilling. Results are historical in nature and have not been confirmed by Eagle Plains, but are considered to be reliable and will form a basis for ongoing work.

 

Under the terms of the Brownell Lake Option Agreement, Eagle Plains will grant Roughrider the right to acquire up to an 80% interest in and to Brownell Lake (subject to a 2% NSR) by making aggregate cash payments of up to $2,500,000 and incurring exploration expenditures of up to $7,000,000 over a period of up to four years as follows:

 

To earn an initial 60% interest:

 

  • aggregate cash payments of $500,000 on or before March 31, 2022 and aggregate exploration expenditures of $3,000,000 on or before December 31, 2022

 

To earn an additional 20% interest (total 80%):

 

  • additional $2,000,000 cash payment ($2,500,000 total) and an additional $4,000,000 in exploration expenditures ($7,000,000 total) within 2 years of the date of election to exercise the initial option

 

Olson Summary and Option Agreement Details

 

The Olson project is host to regionally-sheared, highly-strained meta-volcanic rocks which are considered to be prospective for orogenic gold mineralization. The Olson project area is host to 29 mineral occurrences defined by historical geological mapping, prospecting, trenching, and 4700 m of diamond drilling. Drilling has intersected 7.5 m of 2.07 g/t Au including 13.00 g/t Au over 0.65 m and grab samples of up to 105.52 g/t Au. The project is underexplored, with known gold occurrences open at depth and along strike. Results are historical in nature and have not been confirmed by Eagle Plains, but are considered to be reliable and will form a basis for ongoing work.
