VANCOUVER, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Garibaldi Resources Corp. (TSX-V: GGI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired an option to purchase a 100% interest in the Aurora concession, a 120 hectare inlier claim contiguous to the Company's Locust drill target at the Tonichi project, Sonora State, Mexico.
Garibaldi's ongoing exploration program at Locust utilizing the Company owned diamond drill (see news release of August 16, 2012) continues to test a gold in soil anomaly within a significant zone of alteration that extends onto the Aurora claim adjacent to the Locust drill target to the south. The anomaly was originally defined by the Company's fixed wing hyperspectral air survey. Drill results to date indicate the potential for Locust to host a bulk tonnage gold deposit.
The agreement with the vendors includes a commitment by Garibaldi to drill a minimum of 1,000 meters within the first year of the option. The option payments over 4 years total $650,000 USD and the terms of the agreement are as follows:
First Year - $15,000 USD down payment (PAID) and two bi-annual payments of $22,500 USD totaling $60,000 USD.
Second year- Two bi-annual payments of $37,500 USD totaling $75,000 USD.
Third year - Two bi-annual payments of $62,500 USD totaling $125,000 USD.
Fourth Year - Two bi-annual payments of $195,000 USD totaling $390,000 USD.
Garibaldi's geologists have begun a sampling and mapping program to delineate drill pad locations.
