Pacton Gold expands reach in Egina region with Hong Kong project acquisition

Published by , Assistant Editor
Global Mining Review,

Pacton Gold Inc. (Pacton) has entered into a binding letter of intent (LOI) to acquire a 70% equity interest in the Hong Kong project based in Western Australia from Clancy Exploration Ltd (Clancy), an Australian Securities Exchange listed exploration company.

The acquisition of this strategic exploration license adjoining Pacton's Friendly Creek and Golden Palms projects provides a considerable land holding in what is emerging to be the primary focus of conglomerate gold exploration in the region. Over 5 km of strike of the lower Fortescue Group lithologies have been mapped within the Hong Kong project and notable historical alluvial gold mines are located within these formations.

In addition, structurally controlled, greenstone hosted gold mineralisation has been historically mined across the Hong Kong project. 

"The acquisition of the Hong Kong Project provides a considerable holding of contiguous tenure within the emerging focal point of conglomerate exploration in the region. Through the process of evaluating the extensive portfolio held by Pacton in the Pilbara region, we are further appreciating the significance of the association between the primary shear hosted and conglomerate styles of gold mineralisation in the region," commented Alec Pismiris, Interim President and CEO of Pacton Gold. 

"We look forward to working closely with Clancy to explore the Hong Kong project as part of our broader Egina area development strategy."

Upon completion of the acquisition, Pacton and Clancy will enter into a joint venture, with Pacton acting as operator of the Hong Kong project.  A minimum of CAN$500 000 must be spent by Pacton within two years of completion of the transaction.
