and Ximen’s Kenville and California mine properties (Red).
The 49er Creek property covers eight BC Minfile occurrences of which four were past producers with production as tabled below:
The Gold Hill, Good Hope and Northern Light are vein deposits and the Queen Victoria is a copper-gold skarn deposit. From 1983 to the mid-1990’s, multiple exploration programs were conducted on the property included soil geochemical sampling, rock sampling, magnetometer readings, and VLF-EM geophysical surveys. The highest assay from exploration in 1984 was 207.4 grams per tonne gold, 168.3 grams per tonne silver and 4.2 per cent copper (BC Assessment Report 13878).
Ximen believes the property holds excellent exploration potential for gold-silver veins and porphyry-related copper gold deposits.
Key points of the transaction include:
• C$100,000 paid to 49er Creek in cash;
• 1,400,000 common shares without par value in the capital of Ximen with the following restrictions: 700,000 of the Shares will become free trading six months and one day after the receipt of Exchange approval and the remaining 700,000 Shares will become free trading one year and one day.
• The transaction is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
