VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 19, 2013) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Bravada Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BVA)(FRANKFURT:BRT) ("Bravada" or the "Company") announced today that it has reassessed the potential of each of its prospects within its portfolio of Nevada properties and determined to maintain 14 core claim groups and lapse BLM claims at four of the most speculative properties. The Company maintains a strong presence in one of the world's best gold mining regions and presently has 14 exploration and development properties with 1,079 claims and 1,300 hectares of private fee land for a total of approximately 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres).
President Joe Kizis commented, "We continually evaluate the risk/reward profile of our properties and adjust positions accordingly. The Company will continue to advance its properties primarily via funding partners and will acquire additional properties as opportunities arise."
Bravada announced a financing (NR-08-13) on August 22nd with plans to issue up to 25,000,000 units in a non-brokered private placement at a price of $0.02 per unit to raise $500,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share for a period of three years at an exercise price of $0.05 per share.
Net proceeds from the private placement will be utilized to fund exploration expenses on the Company's exploration projects, to pay claim maintenance fees and option payments to maintain the status of the Company's properties, and for general working capital.
The financing is being conducted pursuant to the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") bulletin of April 12, 2013 - Private Placements - Extension and Modification of Temporary Relief from Certain Pricing Requirements. The private placement and any finders' fees which may be payable are subject to acceptance for filing by the TSXV.
Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations, Inc. has notified Bravada that it has completed a second phase of drilling at Bravada's Shoshone Pediment gold and barite project. The program, designed to test for the presence of barite mineralization, follows a 12-hole (1,100m total) drilling program conducted earlier this year and consisted of an additional 19 reverse-circulation holes (approximately 1,000 meters). The property is located along the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold trend, which, in the project area, overlaps one of Nevada's most important regions for barite production. Baker Hughes has the option to acquire 100% of any barite ore, whereas Bravada will retain all other mineral rights, including gold, and will receive a split of the drill samples from the barite drilling for its independent geologic logging and assaying. Gold and other mineral values will be reported subsequent to evaluation by Bravada of assay data.
Baker Hughes makes annual payments to Bravada and pays claim maintenance fees during the option period and during any subsequent barite mining. Baker Hughes can exercise the option by paying to Bravada an option fee at any time within the six-year option period, which terminates in April 2015. Bravada will receive a quarterly royalty payment on any barite production greater than 150,000 tons. Should there be a discovery of both barite and other metals; each company would have the right to mine their respective minerals while stockpiling minerals belonging to the other party.
Barite was historically produced from an open pit adjacent to the Shoshone Pediment property, and the property lies along the northwesterly projection of a linear cluster of small gold deposits hosted in Upper Plate rocks along Slaven Canyon. Although gold mineralization may exist in the Upper Plate rocks, which also host the barite mineralization, Nevada's largest gold deposits typically occur in underlying Lower Plate carbonate host rocks, which have not been tested by drilling at Shoshone Pediment.
Terrence Eyton has resigned from the Board of Directors. Bravada thanks him for his services over a span of many years and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
