Evrim Options Cumobabi Property to SilverCrest Mines
|Vancouver, BC - November 18, 2014 Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) ("Evrim" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a five year option agreement (the "Agreement") with SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL, NYSE MKT:SVLC) ("SilverCrest") whereby SilverCrest can acquire a 100% interest in the Company's Cumobabi Property ("Cumobabi") in Sonora, Mexico, 25 kilometres southeast of SilverCrest's mine operations at Santa Elena and adjacent to the Ermitaño Property.|
Paddy Nicol, President and CEO of Evrim commented that "SilverCrest's acquisition of the Cumobabi project significantly consolidates SilverCrest's land position in the greater Cumobabi district. When combined with the recently acquired Ermitaño Property, SilverCrest now controls over 300 square kilometres of ground prospective for gold and silver resources for the Santa Elena mine. This transaction advances exploration of gold and silver for Cumobabi and aligns with Evrim's vision for potential future cash flow."
SilverCrest can earn a 100% interest in Cumobabi by paying US$75,000 upon signing the Agreement and US$50,000 each anniversary thereafter, completing a minimum of US$500,000 in exploration expenditures by the second anniversary, and delivering a Production Notice specifying mine and construction plans with accompanying permits. Upon vesting, SilverCrest will no longer be required to make the annual payments and Evrim will retain a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR").
About the Cumobabi Property
The Cumobabi project consists of 137 square kilometres in a proven mining district in Sonora, Mexico. The underlying geology is comprised of Cretaceous andesite volcanic centres intruded by Laramide age granodiorite and quartz-feldspar porphyries. Epithermal characteristics, including large hydrothermal cells of argillic to advanced argillic alteration, quartz veining and anomalous epithermal style geochemistry are also present. No exploration on the property to date has specifically targeted epithermal gold-silver mineralization.
The property is held 100% by Evrim Resources Corp. subject to a 2% NSR. Cumobabi covers the majority of the Cumobabi breccia district and surrounds the past producing Cumobabi mine.
