Montreal, Quebec, January 11, 2019 - TOMAGOLD CORPORATION (TSXV: LOT) (“TomaGold” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce the signature of an agreement with Quinto Resources Inc. (TSXV: QIT) (“Quinto”) to acquire Quinto´s 5% interest in the Monster Lake property for a cash payment of $500,000. Following this transaction, TomaGold will own a 50% interest in the Monster Lake property, with IAMGOLD Corporation (“IAMGOLD”) holding the other 50%.
TomaGold has also entered into an agreement with Brunswick Resources Inc. (“Brunswick”) to acquire the Irene Lake property, which consists of 14 claims immediately west of the Monster Lake property, in exchange for a cash payment of $65,000. There is an existing 2% NSR on these claims.
