Green River Gold Corp. entered into a letter of intent with an independent third party to acquire over 8,200 hectares of mineral rights and 640 hectares of placer rights in the Cariboo mining district of British Columbia.
The company will pay C$119,048.74 in cash and 2 million units at 6 Canadian cents per unit, each of which will consist of 1 share and half of a share purchase warrant. Green River said March 13 that it expects to start mineral exploration activities in the spring and placer activities this year.
The company intends to submit a notice of work to the Mines Branch within 30 days to prepare to expand a trenching and drilling program.
An updated exploration plan is pending approval for the placer mine site, where an active permit is already in place.
The company is also planning a nonbrokered private placement of up to 5 million units to raise up to C$300,000.
The company intends to use the proceeds to complete the purchase, to buy additional equipment for manufacturing operations and for general working capital purposes. The offering is expected to close around April 30.
Green River decided not to pursue its 50% joint venture with 1070923 BC Ltd. and will instead solely own and operate the intended business of Green River Gold Industries LP, which is manufacturing mining equipment and providing general welding and mechanical maintenance services.
