CARSON CITY, Nev., Sept. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Del Toro Silver Corp. (OTCBB:DTOR) (“Del Toro” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that on September 14, 2016 it renewed the November 14, 2011 asset sale agreement with Bowerman Holdings LLC to acquire up to 75% of the historic Discovery Day gold property in Siskiyou County, California. As compensation for the renewal, the Company paid one million restricted shares of common stock to Trinity Alps Resources, Inc., the parent company of Bowerman Holdings LLC. The agreement extends the closing of the transaction until March 17, 2017 and provides for as many as three additional 90 day extension periods.
The Discovery Day Gold Property is located near the town of Forks of Salmon, approximately 65 miles southwest of Yreka, California. The claim block consists of 48 unpatented BLM mining claims, controlling the prolific Knownothing Mining District and approximately 950 acres of USFS land. Historical records of the Knownothing district state the presence of high-grade gold ore deposits in at least 6 major, well-defined, quartz veins. Gold ore has been produced over a vertical distance of 1500 ft. Potential exists for 40 to 50 ore shoots per vein system (with ore grading 1+ opt Au and local high-grade pockets containing 10 to 30+ opt Au).
According to Del Toro CFO Patrick Fagen “The Company has performed extensive due diligence on the Discovery Day Mine and believes it to be a unique asset. In addition to outstanding ore grades, it has an approved Plan of Operations and an operational 100 tpd mill on site facilitating near term production. The Company is very pleased to once again have it under contract.”
