Vancouver, BC - BCM Resources Corporation (TSX-V: B), the "Company" is pleased to announce that the Utah Department of Oil Gas and Mining ("DOGM") has approved the Company's drill pad/hole locations and road plans for the Thompson Knolls Cu-Au Porphyry exploration project located in Western Utah. Two initial diamond drill holes are planned, approximately 1,350 metres apart. Each drill hole will be vertical and drilled to a target depth of 900 metres.
As previously announced, the Company has entered into an option agreement with Inland Explorations Ltd., a BC headquartered non-reporting Issuer, ("Inland"), for an option to acquire up to 60% interest in Inland's drill-ready Thompson Knolls Property ("TK Property") located in central Utah's Great Basin, one of the premier metallogenic provinces in the world. The TK Property is located in Millard County, Utah and consists of 125 federal unpatented mineral claims and two State Section Leases, comprising 3,465 acres (1,402 ha).
Under the terms of the agreement, BCM has the option to earn a 51% interest within 4 years by incurring total property expenditures of C$3.5 million, issuing to Inland a total of 2.6 million shares in the Company, and making total cash payments of C$250,000, as well as posting any required exploration bonds and paying all annual property and permit related expenses. Fifty thousand dollars (C$50,000) and 450,000 shares shall be due on Closing with the balance of property expenditures, cash and share payments staged over a four year period.
Upon BCM earning a 51% interest, the Company shall have the option to increase its interest in the TK Property by an additional 9% to 60% by spending an additional $5M on the TK Property and delivering a pre-feasibility level study on the property with 2 years.
The proposed transaction has received approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and completion of a formal Option Agreement reflecting detailed terms is underway, with Closing expected on or before April 30th, 2018.
