Cayden Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYD) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the 100% interest or the option to earn a 100% interest in two concessions totaling 36,700 hectares around the company’s El Barqueno concession.

“The two acquisitions increase Cayden’s land position from 9,800 hectares to over 46,000 hectares in the Barqueno Gold District. We believe that this District is highly underexplored and our three concessions have multiple targets that have the potential for significant open-pit gold deposits,” stated Ivan Bebek, President and CEO.

The terms of the acquisitions for the new concessions are:

Concession 1 – hereafter referred to as Barqueno II

Cayden has signed a Letter Agreement to earn a 100% interest in the Barqueno II concession covering approximately 9,500 hectares located adjacent to the Cayden’s original El Barqueno concession

Under the Letter Agreement, Cayden paid the owner $25,000 and committed to 3 years of concession tax payments totaling $87,500 as listed in Schedule A. Cayden has the option to complete the 100% earn-in by incurring expenditures totaling $1,400,000 on the concession as listed in Schedule B and making a final payment by June, 2017 of $5,000,000. The final payment can be made in either cash or common shares which would be valued at the 10-day weighted average market price prior to payment date. The property will be subject to a 2.5% NSR payable to the underlying owners of the concession.

Schedule A – Concession Tax Payments (committed)


Year 1 - $12,500
Year 2 - $25,000
Year 3 - $50,000



Schedule B – Work Expenditures (optional)


Year 1 - $200,000
Year 2 - $400,000
Year 3 - $800,000 or 5,000 meters of drilling



The Letter Agreement is subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.


The Barqueno II concession contains several historical small-scale workings that appear to have been used for exploring and/ or producing gold from numerous EW and ENE veins.

Concession 2 – hereafter referred to as Barqueno III

Cayden has staked a total of 27,200 hectares around the west and northwest boundaries of the original El Barqueno concessions. The approximate staking costs were $12,000 and the annual concession tax payments for year 1 and 2 are $23,000 each year.

The Barqueno III concession has had some limited historical exploration that identified the presence of multiple EW and ENE epithermal veins.
