Tarku executes definitive agreement securing strategic position in historic Copper Gold Silver Tombstone District, Arizona

Download PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, October 22nd , 2020. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce the signing of the final agreement with arm’s length parties (the “Vendors”) under which Tarku has an Earn-In interest for up to 75% over 3 years in 1250 hectares of mineral claims in the Tombstone mining District, Arizona (see figures in presentation). This final agreement follows the execution of a letter agreement previously announced and detailed in its October 5, 2020 press release.

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku, stated: "This agreement sets the stage for a significant new opportunity for Tarku shareholders . The more we investigate and uncover information from historical databases and records, the more we see the potential for Tombstone regaining the shine it once had as a major historical  Silver district”.

“As evidenced with  their most recent press releases, Aztec Minerals (TSXV:AZT) has demonstrated that by applying  modern drilling methods  Silver mineralization is related to regional fractures mainly oriented NNE-SSW with high-grade Gold and Silver intervals around old mining tunnels and longer intervals of near surface bulk-tonnage. Tarku holds the extensions of those intervals as well as other regional NNE-SSW fractures that encompasses several past high-grade mines”.

“Tarku’s strategy  for the Tombstone project area is twofold : first to validate the existence of potential resources of high-grade silver mineralization in the close vicinity of past mines located on our property and secondly, to establishes that the same potential exists on a more regional scale along the extensions of those NNE structures which we also control over 5km in length”.

Julien Davy, P.Geo., M.Sc, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tarku, is the qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects who prepared, supervised and approved the technical information in this news release.

Tarku establishes strategic position in historic Copper Gold Silver Tombstone District, Arizona

Download PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, October 05, 2020. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with arm’s length parties (the “Vendors”) under which Tarku intends to acquire up to 75% in 1250 hectares of mineral claims in the Tombstone area mining District, Arizona. The agreement is subject to completion of due diligence, the finalization of a definitive agreement governing the acquisition and receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).

Acquisition Highlights

  • Acquisition of 1,250 + hectares exploration land package in a historic mining jurisdiction prospective for Copper, Gold and Silver
  • Tarku will become one of the most significant mineral claim owners in the historic Tombstone mining district
  • The mineral claims are a combination of BLM, patented and unpatented claims
  • Assets located in vicinity of Tombstone and its numerous historic high-grade silver mines
  • Past producing assets focused solely on high grade veins
  • Under-explored assets mainly focused on shallow drilling of high-grade silver veins.
  • More recent interpretation  suggests large porphyry Cu-Au system
  • Numerous exploration targets identified

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku, stated: ” Tombstone has an incredible history of mining. The area has produced approximately 32 million ounces of silver at an average grade of almost 26 oz/t as well as 260,000 ounces of gold at 6.5g/t and in lesser amounts other base metals as lead, zinc, copper, zinc and manganese. Previously thought to be an epithermal silver-lead-zinc district of limited size and potential, we now understand that mineralization is associated with volcanism and related caldera formation, and alteration assemblages which are characteristic of porphyry copper deposits and its surrounding systems. It’s not surprising to find world class Cu-Au porphyry producing mines to the south within the same geological trend.”

“Tarku’s Project consists of the amalgamation of an exceptional land package in the Tombstone District. We believe the decades of silver production mainly from 0 to 200m deep due to their technical capacity of pumping water in the 30’s, is the tip of the iceberg of a bigger Cu-Au porphyry system. The area has never been explored in modern times with a “big picture” view and utilizing a thorough systematic approach.

History of the Tombstone Area

The Project is located in  Cochise County, Arizona in the famous Tombstone Mining district, one of the earliest silver mining areas in western United States that start producing numerous silver mines in 1877. Despite the attractive quantity of silver found in the district, the low metal prices of the 1915’s led past producers to focus mainly  on high-grade veins. During the 38 year-period from 1877 to 1915, when most of the ore was produced at Tombstone, declining silver prices, financial panic, and the removal of the United States currency from the silver standard, had immeasurably more effect on the mines than the Earp/Clanton feud, bandits, and their technical inability to deal with underground waters.

Some sporadic production in the area was recorded at different periods also stimulated by a higher gold price. During World War II, there was some study of the manganese deposits in the district in relation to the war effort. Exploration work in late 1950 showed values in lead and zinc and in 1965, limited drilling was completed probing for porphyry-copper-type model recovering alteration zones in the vicinity of breccia pipes and extensive but low-grade mineralization.

Between 1980 and 1985, Tombstone Exploration, Inc. operated an open pit mine on the Contention vein and produced up to 3,000 tons per day of ore averaging in the range of 1.25 oz/t Ag and 0.6 g/t Au. No exploration drilling was ever done, and no ore reserves of significance were measured ahead of mining.

Tarku’s Tombstone Project

The Project encompasses a total of about 1,250 hectares (13 km2) adjacent to the South of the Tombstone city, Cochise county, Arizona and consists of a combination of BLM claims as well as patented and unpatented claims (see figure 1).

The area is characterized by mountain building episodes and sedimentation (mountain erosion) intruded by numerous granites. Older rocks are unconformably overlying the Tombstones hills by tick sequences of sediments which are excellent host mineralization as they chemical and resistant characteristics make them break easily under tectonics stress and provide pathways for veins and mineralization. The principal production from the Tombstone mining district has been from high grade veins associated with those fractures.

Although Tombstone has primarily been a silver camp, substantial gold and lead, and subordinate copper, zinc, and manganese have also been produced. The silver to gold ratio for documented production between 1877 and 1937 is 126 to 1 and production has come mainly from mineralized vein fractures cutting folded sediments. Ninety-five percent or more of the production is from the surface to 200 m and is primarily from oxide ore minerals.

More recent publications and data compilation concluded that the volcanic geology and structure in the Tombstone area is related to a district-scale Laramide caldera. Mineralization in the district is also related to the caldera and attendant hydrothermal fluid migration. These districts are typically zoned from silver-rich peripheries to higher base-metal and gold contents near to the intrusions. Copper-gold mineralization occurs in intrusion-hosted stockworks or skams.

In the early 70’s, the American Smelting & Refining Company (ASARCO) obtained a lease on the Horne claims around the Robbers’ Roost breccia pipe. They drilled three holes to a maximum depth of 1700m (5,000 ft) on a porphyry copper alteration zone in the vicinity of the breccia pipes. These holes intersected extensive but low-grade mineralization, grading vertically downward from a lead-zinc phase of mineralization into porphyry copper type mineralization, including disseminated pyrite, chalcopyrite, and molybdenite, as well as secondary K-feldspar and purple anhydrite. Poor copper prices at the time and since have discouraged further exploration for copper at this depth.

These mining claims are part of the agreement and such data strongly encourage Tarku’s management to believe the Tombstone Area has the potential to host a significant porphyry copper system with associated gold and silver.

Tarku cautions that comparisons of the mineralization in a porphyry copper system may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company’s project in the Tombstone area and is used as a conceptual exploration model only.

Summary of the Transaction

Tarku has the right but not the obligation to earn up to a 75% interest over 3 years in the Vendors’ mineral claim by funding project expenditures of up to US$3 million as follows:

  • Tarku will acquire 25% of the Property after spending US$ 1,000,000 in exploration expenses within the first year of earn-in period
  • Tarku will acquire an additional 26% (total of 51%) of the Property after spending an additional US$ 1,000,000 in exploration expenses and the production of a 43-101 report on the Property within the first 2 years of earn-in period
  • Tarku will acquire an additional 24% (total of 75%) of the Property after spending an additional US$ 1,000,000 for a cumulative US$ 3,000,000 in exploration expenses within the first 3 years of earn-in period.

At the end of this Earn-in Period, the Vendors and Tarku will become JV partners on the Property, 75% Tarku, 25% the Vendors. Should the Vendors elect to dispose of their remaining interest, Tarku will keep a Right of First Refusal.

The Transaction is an arm’s length transaction. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, it is anticipated that the definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) in respect of the Transaction will be signed on or before October 15, 2020, at which time the Company will issue a comprehensive news release in respect of the Transaction.

Upon completion of the Definitive Agreement, Tarku will issue 3,000,000 common shares to the Vendors in consideration for the Projects. The shares will be subject to resale restrictions of 4 equal period of 6 month each and a RoFR will allow Tarku the opportunity to place these shares with existent shareholders at prevailing market price. At each anniversary date over the 3 years, Tarku will pay US$ 175,000 to the vendors of which a minimum of US$ 50,000 will be a cash payment and US$ 125,000 will be paid either in shares or in cash at the Companies discretion. In addition, Tarku will have to make several payments of a total of US$ 725,000 spread over the next 2 years to purchase specific options the Vendor has on certain patented and unpatented claims.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to the following key conditions:

  • Execution of the Definitive Agreement;
  • Completion of mutually satisfactory due diligence; and
  • Receipt of all required regulatory, including the approval TSX Venture Exchange.

Tarku announces Claims Acquisition and prepare for drilling

MONTREAL, September 9, 2020. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) announces it has increased its land position along the regional Sunday Lake fault and will begin fieldwork to prepare for a drilling campaign on its wholly owned Three A’s Projects, in the Matagami area, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec.

Following the field work and the compilation of historical data carried out over the past 3 years on the Admiral and the Apollo Project, the Company reaffirms the strong gold mineralization similarities with the geological context found at the Detour Lake Mine and the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp. On the Admiral project, Tarku has added 50 claims along the regional fault and on Apollo, the Company is preparing field work over the 6 km zone defined along the same regional fault locally named Rivière Waswanipi shear zone (see figure 1).

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku, stated: " The preparation of a drilling campaign is existing. Several geological evidences lead us to believe that the extension of the Sunday Lake Fault on our 3A projects and more specifically on the Apollo project, could contain the source of the gold we found in our till samples. This is where we will target our drilling during next winter. Along with the new claims added, we now control almost 40km along a high prospective Gold-bearing regional fault.”

About the Apollo project

The Admiral project is part of the “Three A’s”, 3 projects wholly owned by Tarku in the Matagami area (Admiral, Apollo and Atlas) totaling 248 mining titles centered on the Eastern extension of the Sunday Lake regional fault including ductile shear of the Waswanipi River (RWSZ). Apollo is adjacent to the north of its also 100% owned Atlas Project. It consists of 97 claims (50,6 km2) centred on the Rivière Waswanipi ductile shear zone. This regional structure is characterized by the presence of alkaline rocks, polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming type) and porphyry intrusions bearing anomalous gold values on the order of hundreds of parts per billion (GM 52712). This corridor, altered to carbonate-hematite-magnetite, contains the Rivière Waswanipi gold showing (2.36 g/t Au over 1 m; GM 51193) hosted in a porphyritic dyke and tuffs altered to pyrite-fuchsite as well as several porphyry intrusions bearing anomalous gold values on the order of 0.1 to 0.9 g/t Au over 0.6 to 5 m (GM 52712).

In 2019, following a 271 line-km geophysical High-resolution magnetic survey completed along the 6 km wide favourable zone along the regional Rivière Waswanipi shear zone (see press release dated April 10, 2019), several never drill tested gold targets were outlined in a favourable geological context: metallotects present a favourable setting for orogenic gold mineralization associated with alkaline rocks and porphyry intrusions, which Tarku interprets as being similar to those of the regional Sunday Lake Fault, host of the Detour Lake mine or the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the Detour Lake mine or the Kirkland Lake mining Camp may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company’s Matagami projects and is used as a conceptual exploration model only.

Tarku is now planning a ground geophysics program to prepare for its next winter drilling campaign.

About the Admiral project

The Admiral project is part of the “Three A’s”, 3 projects wholly owned by Tarku in the Matagami area (Admiral, Apollo and Atlas) totaling 248 mining titles centered on the Eastern extension of the Sunday Lake regional fault including ductile shear of the Waswanipi River (RWSZ), a favourable setting for orogenic gold mineralization associated with alkaline rocks and porphyry intrusions. Tarku interprets this geological context as being similar to the Sunday Lake regional fault, host of the Detour Lake Mine or the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp.

The Admiral project is located west of Lake Olga and consists of 80 claims (44,5 km2) overlying the convergence of the Rivière Waswanipi (RWSZ) and Lac Olga (LOSZ) shear zones. The LOSZ contains the Lac Olga Ouest gold showing (5.9 g/t Au, grab sample, GM 49140) and Newmont’s high-grade deposit Indice Principal zone Olga located 10 km southeast of Admiral (14.75 g/t Au, 1.14% Cu and 10.3 g/t Ag over 1.50 m, GM 50632) (see www.tarkuresources.com).

Tarku’s management believes that the gold potential of the Matagami sector has been undervalued and uses today modern geological models and exploration techniques to aid in the discovery of gold mineralization. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the Detour Lake mine or the Kirkland Lake mining Camp may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company’s Matagami projects and is used as a conceptual exploration model only.
