Vancouver, British Columbia – November 25, 2020 – Cameo Industries Corp. (CSE: CRU) (OTC: CRUUF) (FWB: SY7N) (the “Company” or “Cameo”) is pleased to announce that it has closed an arm’s length share purchase agreement dated November 16, 2020 resulting in the acquisition (the “Acquisition”) of 2752300 Ontario Inc. 2752300 Ontario Inc. is a private company formed under the laws of Ontario, whose sole asset is an option agreement (the “Option Agreement’) with Benton Resources Inc. (“Benton”) dated July 31, 2020, whereby 2752300 Ontario Inc. has the option to earn up to a 100% interest in the Saganaga Gold and Silver Project (“Saganaga Project”) located 120 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario (Figure 1). The Saganaga Project consists of 27 mineral claims (350 claim units) that cover a number of high-grade gold and silver occurrences within a 20 km long segment of the southwestern section of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt in the Thunder Bay Mining District.
As consideration for the Acquisition, the Company issued an aggregate of 14,000,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.13 per share to the shareholders of 2752300 Ontario Inc. (collectively the “Vendors“). In connection with the Acquisition, the Company also issued 1,153,846 common shares at a deemed price of $0.13 per share to an eligible arm’s length finder. All securities issued pursuant to the Acquisition will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the issuance thereof, as applicable, in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The Saganaga property is accessible via a well maintained logging road and located in the southwestern extension of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, which is approximately 5 km wide and bounded by the north, east and south by granitoid complexes, and to the southeast by the older Northern Lights metagneiss. The southeastern section of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt is cut by two major NE-SW oriented faults; the Greenwater Lake and Knife Lake faults. The Greenwater Lake fault cuts the Saganaga Project with left lateral displacement along the fault system. These structures and related splays likely provide conduits for gold-bearing fluids in the region.
The Saganaga property consists mainly of pillowed mafic flows and massive mafic volcanics intruded by a gabbro plug. In the eastern section of the property the mafic units are commonly interlayered with sedimentary sequences which include volcaniclastics and chemical sediments composed of magnetite-chert banded iron formation. In localized areas, particularly in the eastern portion of the property quartz-feldspar porphyry (QFP) dykes are found to cut the mafic volcanics.
The property contains four historical gold showings: the Powell Zone, Beaver Pond Zone, Minnow Pond Zone, and the Starr Zone. With the exception of the Powell Zone, most gold showings occur along the western contact of the gabbro plug.
Teck Cominco completed a 2,000 m (11 hole) drill program on the Saganaga property (focused on the Starr zone) in 2006 and discovered highly anomalous gold and silver values in areas where the host rock is strongly albitized with high percentages of clotted pyrite. The results of this program indicated a strong correlation between anomalous gold and silver values and areas of weak to strong albite alteration. Mineralization in the project area ranges from iron formation hosted gold in the south-west to pyrite-albite alteration zones and quartz veins with chalcopyrite in the central part and quartz veins hosting high grade gold and silver to the northeast. Benton completed a 2,654m drilling program on the property in 2012 and also intersected high-grade gold intervals at depth in multiple zones.
