Armadillo to Acquire Brazilian Mineral Claims with Gold Potential
|October 21, 2010, Vancouver, BC -- (TSX.V: ARO) Les Kjosness, President & CEO, is pleased to announce the Company has signed a letter of intent dated October 18, 2010 with Rusheen Handels AG, a private company based in Zurich ("RH"), to acquire approximately 50% of the issued Units of Amazonia Capital E Participacoes Ltd. a private Company based in Brazil ("Amazonia") (the "Purchase"). Amazonia is ninety nine percent owned by Raheen Handels AG and one percent by Kym Keeves of Brazil. |
Amazonia is the registered holder of approximately 860,000 hectares of processos minerais (exploration concessions) in northern Brazil. The property encompasses 116 concessions in the states of Amazonas, Mato Grosso and Rondonia and was originally staked by John Young for RH. Most of the concessions have been staked over Archaen to Lower Proterozoic greenstone belts which are considered to be prospective for gold. Small-scale garimpeiros (artisanal miners) are active in and around all of the concession areas. Gold production by garimpeiros in northern Mato Grosso from the end of the 1970‟s to 2000 is reported by the National Department of Mineral Production to have totaled 123t (Tobias da Silva, 2008).
The Company is to pay $350,000 on signing the letter of intent and at closing issue 12,500,000 shares of the Company. There is a finder's fee of 750,000 shares. The Company will assume 100% of Amazonia expenses and has to date advanced $350,000 for property taxes.
RH has granted the Company an option to acquire the second 50% of Amazonia for another 12,500,000 shares within three months of the closing of the Purchase (the "Option"). On exercise of the Option, there will be a second finder's fee of 750,000 shares.
Armadillo, an exploration Company primarily in the precious and specific base metals (copper, iron, zinc) will remain primarily interested in the same resources.
A financing of $3,500,000.00 to begin the exploration of the new property in Brazil and sustain continued exploration of the present properties in Canada will be arranged in the near future after the market settles and a price for the shares and warrants can be properly determined.
