Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, February 20, 2020, Klondike Gold Corp. (TSX.V: KG; FRA: LBDP; OTC: KDKGF) (“Klondike Gold” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into a Property Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) dated February 14, 2020 with Ximen Mining Corp. (“Ximen”), whereby Klondike Gold will sell to Ximen all of its British Columbia gold properties totalling 98 mineral claims covering 4,171 hectares and one Crown Granted mineral claim of 8.7 hectares located in the southeastern part of the province. The Agreement covers four properties, namely Ron Gold (Nelson), Clubine, Hughes, and Quartz Mountain.
The terms for the Agreement are as follows:
Completion of the sale of the BC properties is subject to the satisfaction of a number of conditions, including approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
Peter Tallman, President and CEO of Klondike states “Klondike has divested its interests in southeastern British Columbia in return for a meaningful share position in Ximen Mining Corp. This strategy allows Klondike Gold shareholders leverage to a combined portfolio of highly prospective British Columbia gold properties and including centralized, permitted gold mill while keeping the Company’s financial and exploration focus on its core Yukon assets. We welcome Ximen Mining as our partner in realizing value from these properties for both our Companies”.
