Kapa Gold Announces Option Agreement for Historic BC Nickel Project


Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 21, 2023) - KAPA GOLD INC. (TSXV: KAPA) ("Kapa" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Mastodon Nickel Project ("Mastodon") a large historic nickel project located in Southern BC.

The property is situated just east of Christina Lake, a 6.5 hours drive from Vancouver along the Canada-US border. The property covers 2,118 hectares and contains several historic workings dating back to the turn of the 20th century.

In the 1970's, southern BC had a period of exploration by numerous companies focused on nickel-copper-cobalt-chromium mineralization. The Mastodon was identified as a potential large sulphide nickel zone and had a follow-up drill campaign undertaken by Chromex Mines.

The Company is presently compiling all the available historic data and will report on the geological model and historic results, with a recommendation to advance the project. Good road access exists throughout the project area.

The option terms call for an initial $25,000 deposit within 30 days of signing, 50,000 share issuance, and an expenditure of $150,000 in the first year. Thereafter annual share payments spread over 6 years will total an additional 1,150,000 shares. Additionally property payments consist of 10% of exploration expenditures, capped at $1mm, with no annual commitments on the work performed. Complete details of the option agreement will be disclosed at a later date.

Kapa is excited with its latest acquisition as it provides for additional interest in strategic metals while also providing project diversification.
