Rackla Metals restructures Yukon property holdings

May 15, 2018; Vancouver, BC: Rackla Metals Inc. (TSX-V: RAK) is pleased to announce it has sold or joint ventured a majority of its Yukon projects, reducing holding costs while retaining exposure to some of the properties through an NSR.  A summary of the recent transactions is as follows:
  • 346 Sixty Mile Claims and 320 Scarlet West Claims lapsed.
  • Agreement with an arm's length individual to sell 81 of the Sixty Mile Claims, for a potential 25% share of any future payments received on the claims over the next 5 years.
  • Agreement with arm's length Strategic Metals to sell 230 Scarlet East Claims and 49 Hat Claims for $50,000 plus a retained 1% NSR.
  • Agreement with an arm's length individual to sell the remaining 63 Sixty Mile Claims, in return for acquiring 100 Rivier Claims (these claims were previously subject to an option agreement which was terminated last October). The Rivier Claims are subject to a 2% NSR and annual advance royalty payments of $10,000 commencing in April 2020.

As a result of the above transactions, Rackla's Yukon holdings consist of the consolidated Rivier Project (116 claims) targeting lode gold mineralization of the Motherlode type.  Geochemical results from soil sample programs identified three zones of anomalous gold values adjacent to a structurally controlled ultramafic body indicating the potential for significant gold mineralization.  Each of the three zones includes at least one soil sample that contained over 2 grams per tonne gold.
