The Palomar Lake property is adjacent to the True North complex and consists of three properties that will be consolidated for the first time. The company will pay $90,000 to the consortium of three local prospectors and issue 180,000 common shares to them.
The Pleiades property belonged to Pleiades Mineral Exploration and abuts 1911 Gold’s Moore Lake (Angelina) property. 1911 Gold will issue 15,000 common shares and make a cash payment of $10,000 to Pleiades, which will retain a 1% net smelter return royalty. 1911 Gold may buy back half the NSR royalty at any time for $100,000.
