MANITOBA – AuRico Gold of Toronto has subscribed for 70.6 million common shares of Carlisle Goldfields at a price of $0.08 per share for a total consideration of about $5.6 million. AuRico now holds a 19.9% equity interest in Carlisle and its several gold prospects near Lynn Lake.
In conjunction with the private placement, a joint venture will be formed that will allow AuRico of acquire a 25% interest in the properties for an initial cash payment of $5.0 million. AuRico may earn an additional 35% interest by spending $20.0 million on the Lynn Lake project over three years and delivering a feasibility study within that time.
Carlisle’s Lynn Lake project includes two former gold producers – MacLellan and Farley Lake. Resources at them include 9.1 million measured tonnes at 2.03 g/t Au, 14.2 million indicated tonnes at 2.24 g/t Au, and 3.7 million inferred tonnes at 2.44 g/t Au. If the project moves ahead as originally envisioned, mining could restart in late 2018. There are also several prospective targets including the Dunvegan zone, Linkwood, Burnt Timber and Last Hope projects.
