Pacton Gold to Acquire JV on Advanced Gold Project at Red Lake






Pacton Gold Inc. (TSX-V: PAC) (OTC: PACXF) (FSE: 2NKN) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent with TomaGold Corporation (TSX-V: LOT), whereby the Company will acquire all of TomaGold’s interest, being 39.5%, in a joint venture it currently holds with Evolution Mining and Newmont Corporation (formerly GoldCorp when TomaGold entered into the joint venture) on the Sidace Lake Property. Located in the Red Lake District, Ontario, Sidace Lake is contiguous to Pacton’s current claim package (Figures 1 and 2) and is an advanced gold project with over 81,600 meters if historic drilling. Pacton will enter the joint venture as project Operator and plans to aggressively expand the mineralized zones at the project with exploration drilling.


About the Sidace Lake Property


The Sidace Lake Property is located 28 km north east of the town of Red Lake, at the northern extent of the Red Lake Greenstone belt. Historic drilling highlights are summarized in Table 1. Pacton intends to commence a expansion drilling program at the Sidace Lake Property while continuing the ongoing exploration program at its current Red Lake properties.


Dale Ginn, Executive Chairman commented “This is a great opportunity for Pacton. Sidace Lake is an exciting gold project with a clear path for potential growth.  It is directly adjacent to our existing Red Lake land package and we look forward to entering the JV, as operator, and working with Evolution Mining to advance the project.”
