TORONTO, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV:SGU) (OTCQB:SGGTF) (“Signature” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding asset purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire the Lingside Property (the “Property“), a property consisting of 14 patented mineral rights claims located in the Kenora District, Province of Ontario totaling 275.5 hectares.
The Lingside patents are located immediately west of the historical Lingman Lake mine sharing a common boundary. A co-incident magnetic VLF-EM linear delineated by the recently completed airborne survey, and ranked high priority occurs for a distance of 560 meters within these claims. The linear is the western extension of the one traversing through the Lingman Lake mine site.
Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, which are subject to final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“), Signature shall pay to the vendor $600,000, payable by the delivery of 5,000,000 common shares in the capital of Company at a deemed issue price of $0.12 per common share, and will grant to the vendor a 3% net smelter returns royalty (the “Royalty”) applicable to minerals produced from the Property. The Company may at any time repurchase one-half (1/2) of the Royalty for $1,500,000.
“We are extremely excited to acquire the Lingside Property. This acquisition consolidates Signature’s land position and allows us to immediately explore the high priority target located on this property which correlates with western extension of the geophysical trend that traverses across the Lingman Lake mine site”, stated Walter Hanych, CEO.

The scientific and technical content of this press release has been prepared, reviewed and approved by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and the President and CEO of Signature.
The Lingman Lake gold property consists of four free hold patented claims and 762 single cell staked claims, comprising 15,096.3 hectares. The property hosts an historic estimate of 234,684 oz of gold* (1,063,904 tonnes grading 6.86 g/t with 2.73 gpt cut-off) and includes what has historically been referred to as the Lingman Lake Gold Mine, an underground substructure consisting of a 126.5-meter shaft, and 3-levels at 46-meters, 84-meters and 122-meters depths.
*This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101-compliant mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course. Additional information regarding historical resource estimates is available in the technical report entitled, “Technical Report on the Lingman Lake Property” dated December 20, 2013, prepared by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., and Frank Racicot, P.Geo., available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com
