New Jersey Mining Exercises Option, Consolidates Ownership of the Golden Chest Mine

 -- Published: Friday, 4 December 2015 | Print  | Disqus 

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Dec. 04, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Jersey Mining Company (NJMC) (“NJMC” or the “Company”) announced today that it has exercised its Option to Purchase with Marathon Gold Corporation (MOZ.TO) (“Marathon”) and now owns a 100-percent interest in the Golden Chest Mine near Murray, Idaho.

The parties agreed to accelerate completion of the transaction, with NJMC rendering total payments of $180,000 to Marathon for its 52.12-percent interest in Golden Chest LLC, a $20,000 discount to the previously announced terms. Marathon retains a 2-percent net smelter return (NSR) royalty on production from the Golden Chest property, as well as from an adjacent Area of Interest.

NJMC President John Swallow stated, “With this transaction, we have completed the entire purchase well ahead of schedule and are now focused on next steps at the Golden Chest.”

In September 2013, the Skookum Shoot portion of the Golden Chest Mine was leased to Juniper Resources LLC (“Juniper”) which, through its affiliate companies, spent approximately US$7 to US$9-million to develop a state-of-the-art gold mine that began producing ore in late-2014. In September 2015, Juniper ceased mining operations and terminated its lease, forfeiting the remaining mineralized material and mine infrastructure. NJMC processed Golden Chest ore at its New Jersey Mill during the Juniper Lease, earning cash from milling fees and its share of a 2-percent NSR royalty on gold production.

NJMC has initiated a scoping study at the Golden Chest to assess the production readiness of near-mine mineralization, including areas that were included in the Juniper mine plan but were not mined, as well as other accessible, drill-tested areas. NJMC intends to use resulting information to develop a small-scale mining plan, with a production target of 2,000 to 3,000 tons of ore per month.  All future ore production would be processed at the New Jersey Mill.
