Minaurum Gold Inc. ("Minaurum") is pleased to provide an update on its recent corporate developments.
Focused & Balanced Project Portfolio
As one of the first juniors to explore in the Guerrero Gold Belt ("GGB)", Minaurum is focused on advancing its flagship Vuelcos del Destino project, located 20 km from Goldcorp's Los Filos mine. To provide itself with financial flexibility, Minaurum has extended its option to purchase 100% of the project from Minera Zalamera S.A. de C.V. to April 23, 2017. In consideration for the extension, it will be paying an additional $20,000 and issuing an additional 2,650,000 shares.
In order to remain focused on the GGB, Minaurum has decided to advance the remainder of its project portfolio through joint venture partners. As part of this strategy, it has already optioned the Santa Marta VMS project to Lowell Copper. Minaurum is now focusing on optioning off its Adelita Copper-Silver project. Minaurum recently exercised its option to purchase the project and now owns a 100% interest in Adelita.
Adelita is located directly adjacent to Pan American Silver Corp's Alamo Dorado silver mine. The project hosts a near-surface high-grade copper, gold and silver skarn mineralization along with a significant Copper-Molybdenum Porphyry. In accordance with its exploration strategy, Minaurum has dropped its earlier-stage Jackie, Porfido and Capilla projects.
Global Resources Investment Trust ("GRIL") Financing
With the closing of its private placement announced on December 20, 2013, Minaurum decided to avoid dilution by terminating its proposed share exchange agreement with GRIL announced on November 20, 2013.
Stock Options Granted
Minaurum has granted 3,600,000 incentive stock options under its stock option plan to directors, officers and consultants. The options are exercisable at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of five years. The last option grant was approved in 2011.
Minaurum Gold is a gold-copper explorer focused on its Vuelcos del Destino project in the Guerrero Gold Belt, Mexico. For more information, please visit our website at www.minaurum.com and our YouTube Minaurum Video Channel at (http://www.minaurum.com/s/VideoGallery.asp).
