PMI Gold Corporation (TSX-V: PMV) (ASX: PVM) is pleased to announce that its 100% wholly-owned subsidiary, Adansi Gold Company (Ghana) Limited ("Adansi") has entered into an agreement with Midras Mining Company Ltd ("Midras") to acquire the Datano Mining Lease which sits contiguous to the Company's flagship Obotan Gold Project in south-west Ghana (Figure 1).
The Midras concession covers an area of 50km2
and sits strategically south of the Nkran deposit providing PMI access to the extensions of the mineralised Nkran and Fromenda structures and the opportunity to develop additional oxide resource targets close to the Obotan Project. The concession was previously explored by Ashanti Gold Corporation and Kiwi Goldfields Limited where multiple targets associated with traversing lineaments were recognised within a 7km wide corridor of the Asankrangwa Gold Belt.
The lease area will also provide greater flexibility in the design of infrastructure within the Obotan Project Feasibility Study design, which is currently in progress.
The agreement allows for a purchase price of US$6 million and is contingent upon obtaining the approval of the sale and transfer of the Mining Lease to Adansi by the Ghana Minerals Commission and Minister of Lands, Forestry and Mines.
On behalf of the Board,
Managing Director & CEO
