Kesselrun Resources Closes Acquisition of Huronian Gold Project

THUNDER BAY, ON, August 10, 2016 – Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV:KES) (“Kesselrun” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of the acquisition of the Huronian Gold Project (see Kesselrun NR July 5, 2016) with the issuance of 4,000,000 common shares of Kesselrun to the vendors.

All securities issued above are subject to a hold period of 4 months and one day from the date of completion and further provisions restricting the sales of shares to not more than approximately one tenth of the total per month over the following ten months.

As well, Kesselrun is pleased to announce that data compilation and targeting continues. Further results of the compilation highlight the potential of the property with historic drill intercepts of:

  • 4.9 metres of 75.26 g/t gold in the Fisher Zone
  • 3.0 metres of 10.67 g/t gold in the McKeller Zone

The Fisher and McKeller Zones are on strike from, and form part of the same mineralized system, as the Huronian Mine. These two zones are approximately 300 metres northeast and 300 metres southwest of the Huronian Mine respectively. The past producing Huronian Mine produced 29,629 ounces gold and 170,463 ounces silver from 143,724 tons from 1932-1936 (Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines Production Records).

The McKeller, Fisher and the Huronian Zones combined represent over 1.5 kilometres of favourable strike length along the Huronian Gold Trend (“HGT”). Historic exploration drilling along the HGT has been limited to very shallow depths, the McKeller and Fisher zones to a depth of less than 100 metres and the Huronian Mine to a depth of 350 metres with the majority of historic production coming from the top 150 metres.

Data compilation and targeting also continues in the southwest portion of the Huronian Project, which is interpreted to be the southwest strike extent of the Moss Lake Gold Deposit.

The Moss Lake Gold Deposit hosts an NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of 40 million tonnes at a grade of 1.1 g Au/tonne (1,377,300 oz Au) Indicated and an additional 50 million tonnes at a grade of 1.1 g Au/tonne (1,751,600 oz Au) Inferred (Moss Lake Gold Mines NR February 20, 2013).

Michael Thompson, P. Geo., President and CEO of Kesselrun stated, “These historic results continue to impress. With the acquisition now complete we look forward to advancing the Huronian Gold Project in the months to come”

Huronian Gold Project

The Huronian Gold Project consists of 153 unpatented mining claims and four patented mining claims for a total land package of 5,040 hectares. The project is situated in the highly prolific Shebandowan Greenstone Belt located in the Abitibi-Wawa Subprovince approximately 100 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario along major transportation and power routes.

The Huronian Gold Project is 100% owned by Kesselrun and is subject to a variety of NSRs ranging from 2% to 2.5%.  The NSRs are held by a variety of parties and are subject to certain buyback clauses for various percentages and dollar amounts.
