Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – August 30, 2021 – Trillium Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV:TGM, OTCQX:TGLDF, FRA:0702) (“Trillium Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to acquire thirteen contiguous patented mineral claims for a total of 229 hectares, collectively known as the “Willis Property”, situated southwest of and contiguous to Trillium Gold’s Newman Todd (NT) Property in Todd Township, Red Lake Mining District, Ontario. (See figure 1).
Russell Star, CEO of Trillium Gold commented, “The Willis Property represents an important addition to Trillium’s property package in the western Red Lake area. It covers both the southwest extension of the NT Zone as well as other ground proven to be highly prospective for gold with visible gold noted in outcrop sampling. As with the NT Property, the Willis Property displays many similarities to the major gold mines to the east: namely rock types, structures, mineralization and alteration. Despite these attributes, the property has seen very little exploration since the 1930’s and is one of the few remaining unexplored properties in the Red Lake greenstone belt.”
The Willis Property consists of thirteen contiguous patented mineral claims encompassing 229 hectares. Upon completion of the transaction, Trillium Gold will acquire 100% interest in the Property, subject to a 2% net smelter returns (NSR) royalty (the “Royalty”), by completing payments totalling $420,000, and an aggregate of 400,000 common shares in the capital of the Company. The common shares will be subject to a four month hold period pursuant to applicable securities laws. Trillium Gold has the right to repurchase one-half of the Royalty (1%) for consideration of $1.2 million, payable in cash or shares. In addition, the Company has a right of first refusal should the holders of the Royalty choose to sell the Royalty in the future.
The technical information presented in this news release has been reviewed and approved by William Paterson QP, PGeo, VP of Exploration of Trillium Gold Mines, as defined by NI 43-101.
