Probe Gold Announces Acquisition of the Beaufor and McKenzie Break Properties in Val-d’Or, Quebec

 

 

 

 

 

Highlights:

  • The Beaufor Property is within the Company’s Novador property boundaries and currently hosts a high-grade, measured and indicated gold resource of 219,200 ounces of gold at 5.3 g/t and inferred mineral resource of 122,500 ounces of gold at 4.7 g/t.
  • Upon closing of the transaction, Probe will own all of the Courvan Gold Trend, which includes the Courvan, Senore and Beaufor deposits. The trend contains significant exploration upside, which will be the focus going forward in 2024 and 2025.
  • The McKenzie Break Property is proximal to the Company’s Novador Project and hosts a current, higher-grade indicated gold resource of 146,000 ounces of gold at 3.2 g/t, with an inferred mineral resource of 250,600 ounces of gold at 3.1 g/t. The property has significant exploration upside, and our technical team plans to commence exploration concurrent with programs on Beaufor.
  • The acquisitions are part of the Company’s ongoing strategy of expanding the Novador Development Project.

 

PROBE GOLD INC. (TSX: PRB) (OTCQB: PROBF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with Monarch Mining Corporation, pursuant to which Probe has agreed to acquire a 100% interest in the McKenzie Break and Beaufor propertiesThe Property acquisition will extend the Company’s land package adjacent and immediately to the north of the Company’s Novador Project (see figure 1) and will increase Probe’s landholdings in Val-d’Or to 685 square kilometres. The closing of the transaction is expected to occur in the coming weeks and is contingent upon receipt of all necessary court, regulatory and other approvals, including approval of the Superior Court of Quebec in the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act proceedings of Monarch, of the Toronto Stock Exchange, and the satisfaction of other closing conditions.

 

David Palmer, President and CEO of Probe, states: “The tuck-in acquisition of the Beaufor and McKenzie Break properties is a strategic fit with our current development model in Val-d’Or. It will add 365,200 measured and indicated and 373,100 inferred ounces of higher-grade gold to our current resource inventory and will provide an additional 85 square kilometres of highly prospective and under-explored ground for further expansion and discovery. Beaufor, which has produced over 1.2 million ounces of gold in the past, was the missing piece in our Novador claim fabric and will complete the consolidation of our Courvan trend. The McKenzie Break property is within trucking distance of Novador and hosts higher-grade gold resources with tremendous exploration upside. We plan to commence exploration on both properties immediately after closing the acquisition, with a focus on expanding resources and identifying regional targets. Thanks to our strong balance sheet, we can proceed to finalize the acquisitions. This timing aligns well with the conclusion of our winter drilling program at Novador, allowing us to shift our focus to regional exploration at Novador, Croinor, and our new properties.”
