Constantine and Carlin Option Three Yukon Properties to Fireweed Zinc

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:CEM) ("Constantine") and Carlin Gold Corporation (TSX-V:CGD) (“Carlin”) are pleased to announce signing of a Letter Agreement (“Agreement”) granting Fireweed Zinc Ltd. (“Fireweed”) the Option to Purchase a 100% interest in three properties (namely MC, MP and Jerry) totaling 624 claims in the Mac Pass area, Yukon. Total consideration for Fireweed to acquire a 100% interest in the properties includes an aggregate of CDN $500,000 in cash, and issuance of 300,000 common shares in the capital of Fireweed, to be paid over three years.  The claims were staked in 2011 under the Constantine Carlin Joint Venture (“CCJV”), and all option payments and royalties will be split 50% payable to Constantine and 50% payable to Carlin.

The Agreement includes net smelter return royalty (“NSR”) rights retained by Constantine and Carlin, consisting of a 0.5% NSR on base metals and silver and a 2.0% NSR on all other metals. An additional payment of CDN $750,000 is payable upon Fireweed producing an indicated resource of 2.0 million tonnes on the optioned properties.

The CCJV controls an additional ten (10) properties in the greater Mac Pass area, totaling 1,835 claims and approximately 37,700 hectares that are available for sale or option (Figure 1).  These include multiple early-stage gold prospects with high tenor gold-in-soil anomalies. Gold exploration activity has recently picked up in Yukon’s Selwyn Basin, with two separate option agreements announced in 2017 by Newmont and Barrick with junior explorers that include over CDN $100 million in combined total earn-in expenditures. For additional information please visit Constantine’s website (www.constantinemetals.com).
