Gulf Shores Resources Announces Ghana Gold Project Earn-in Agreement V.GUL | 12 days ago Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 13, 2016) - Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GUL) ("GSR" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Goldplat PLC ("Goldplat"), an AIM-listed public company, to earn an interest in the Anumso Gold Project (the "Project") in Ghana (Figure 1). The LOI provides GSR with the right to earn 75% of Goldplat's interest in the Project by expending US$3.0M on exploration over 2.5 years. An initial 51% interest will be earned through expenditure of US$1.5M in the first 18 months, and the remaining 24% interest can be earned through expenditure of an additional US$1.5M in the following 12 months. The government of Ghana has a carried 10% interest in all minerals and mining concessions in Ghana, thus the 75% interest in Goldplat's 90% interest will reflect a 67.5% net interest for GSR. GRS will enter into a formal option agreement with Goldplat within 30 days following a normal due diligence period, and will be subject to approval by the Boards of Directors of both companies and the TSX Venture Exchange. GSR will be the operator of the exploration and development program during the option period. Upon completion of its earn in rights, GSR and Goldplat will form a joint venture whereby each party will contribute proportionally to the Project's development, or have its interest diluted. If either party's interest is reduced to 10%, that interest is then converted into a 1.5% net smelter return royalty which the other party has the right for one year to purchase by paying US$100,000 for each 0.1% of the NSR. The Anumso Gold Project is a 29.63 km2 Mining Lease within two blocks that cover ≥ 5 km of strike length of the well-known Birimian series auriferous Tarkwaian Banket strata within the highly productive Ashanti Belt of Ghana. This portion of laterally continuous Tarkwaian conglomerate strata has produced gold for over 100 years from the colonial Ntronang Mine 7 km to the east and from artisanal miners in more recent years. These same beds are famous in the southern Ashanti Belt for gold produced from the Iduapriem and Teberebie mines of AngloGold Ashanti and the Tarkwa and Demang mines currently in production by Goldfields. The Anumso - Ntronang area is the only location outside of the Tarkwa vicinity where gold has been mined from Banket conglomerate. Gold in these rocks is considered similar to that in the conglomerate-hosted gold deposits of the ~2,800 million year old Witwatersrand of South Africa, except these rocks are younger, being approximately 2,115 million years old.

Approximately 1,500m of mineralized conglomerate beds have been drill tested by previous explorers including Goldplat, with wide (200m) to moderately-detailed (40m) drill spacing providing the basis for historic resource estimates up to 136,000 oz of Au @ 2.07 g/t. The remaining strike portions of Banket beds not tested by drilling reveal anomalous gold in soil samples. Select drill intervals within 2012 Goldplat drill holes (Table 1) indicate the presence of multi-gram gold mineralization within multiple stratigraphic horizons within the tested area. It is anticipated that further drilling will expand the strike and dip dimensions of this mineralization as well as improve confidence in correlating gold-bearing beds between drill holes. Importantly, similar parallel but untested conglomerate beds occur to the west. It is unclear whether these layers are fold repetitions of the same mineralized conglomerates or represent similar but parallel stratigraphic horizons.

The concession also straddles the sheared Ashanti Belt margin which hosts the >7 M oz Newmont Akyim gold deposit along the same sheared margin approximately 15km to the east. This belt-margin shear zone is not adequately explored and represents untested opportunity. GSR intends to assess and expand the resource area down dip and along strike to the east and southwest as well as investigate the potential for gold in parallel stratigraphic horizons and along the sheared belt margin. Following the negotiation and execution of a formal option agreement, GSR will commission an NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the Project, and make application for TSX Venture Exchange approval. It is GSR's intention to raise sufficient funds, by way of a non-brokered private placement, to be able to undertake the initial US$1,500,000 of expenditures on the Project so as to earn a 51% interest therein. Details will follow in a subsequent news release. In addition, GSR anticipates it will engage new management to see the Company through this new opportunity. Details will be released as known.

Ashanti Gold Announces Mali Gold Project Earn-in Agreement

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 22, 2016 / Ashanti Gold Corp. (TSXV: AGZ) ("AGZ" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Alecto Minerals PLC ("Alecto"), an AIM-listed public company, to earn an interest in the Kossanto East Gold Project (the "Project") in western Mali (Figures 1 and 2).

The LOI provides AGZ with the right to earn 65% of Alecto's interest (after including the Mali State carried interest of 10%, AGZ ownership of the property upon completion of the earn-in agreement will be 58.5%) in the Project by completing a Preliminary Feasibility Study ("PFS") within 36 months following the date of TSXV approval (the "Option Period"). AGZ may elect to pay in cash US$4.0M to Alecto within 90 days following the end of the Option Period in lieu of producing a PFS. AGZ will be the operator of the exploration and development programs during the Option Period.

Upon completion of its earn in rights, AGZ and Alecto will form a joint venture whereby each party will contribute proportionally to the Project's continuing exploration and development. The terms of the joint venture, including an interest dilution clause, will be set out in an option agreement that is currently being finalized by Alecto and AGZ.

If either party's interest is reduced to 10% or less (not including the Mali State interest), that interest will be converted into a 1.5% net smelter return royalty (the "NSR") which the other party will have the right for one year to purchase by paying US$100,000 for each 0.1% of the NSR.

The Kossanto East Project is a 66.41 km2 concession in the prolific Kedougou - Kenieba Inlier, the northwestern most exposure of Birimian rocks in West Africa. The Property hosts two principle drill-tested targets, Gourbassi East ("GE") and Gourbassi West ("GW") and several surface anomalies. Geochemical anomalies identified by previous explorers and Alecto led to drill testing, successful intersection of gold mineralization, and production by Alecto of an initial Inferred Resource1 estimate of 121,000 oz gold for GW and a 126,000 oz gold for GE. Gold hasbeen intersected in drill holes over a ~1 km strike length at GW and over a ~900m strike length at GE. Both areas remain open along strike and down dip and include some notable drill intercepts (Table 1). One of the other target areas (Berola) has been tested with shallow Rotary Airblast Drilling (RAB) and returned positive, first-pass intercepts (Table 1).

Gourbassi East is a NNW striking mineralised zone with notable gold grades (multi-meter intercepts at greater than 2 g/t; Table 1) located within a body of felsic volcanics. The Gourbassi West prospect lies approximately 3.7 km WNW of Gourbassi East. Similar gold intercepts are associated with silicified sandstones and NNW striking zone of mineralization (Figure 2).

The Kossanto East Project is located within the highly gold-endowed West Mali Gold Belt which extends approximately 180 km in a north-south direction along the Mali-Senegal border. The Project lies near the intersection of the Senegal-Mali Shear Zone and the Main Transcurrent Shear Zone, two major structures within this district associated with numerous world class orogenic gold deposits (Figure 1). Over the last 20 years approximately 40M oz of gold has been discovered in proximity to these structures resulting in construction of at least 8 new mines, including the world class Loulo group of deposits, Sadiola, Yatela, Gounkoto, Segala, Tabakoto, and Sabodala (Figure 1).

AGZ is very pleased to undertake exploration in this rapidly emerging district. Existing data for GW and GE along with nearby large gold deposits, suggests that significant mineralization could be present at grades, continuity and extent for definition of a larger resource that could lead to mine development in this rapidly emerging key gold region.

1Inferred Mineral Resource

An Inferred Mineral Resource is that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity.

An Inferred Mineral Resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an Indicated Mineral Resource and must not be converted to a Mineral Reserve. It is reasonably expected that the majority of Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.

An Inferred Mineral Resource is based on limited information and sampling gathered through appropriate sampling techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. Inferred Mineral Resources must not be included in the economic analysis, production schedules, or estimated mine life in publicly disclosed Pre-Feasibility or Feasibility Studies, or in the Life of Mine plans and cash flow models of developed mines. Inferred Mineral Resources can only be used in economic studies as provided under NI 43-101.

Ashanti Gold Announces Ghana Gold Project Earn-in Letter of Intent with Red Back
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 25, 2016 / Ashanti Gold Corp. (TSXV: AGZ) ("Ashanti" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Red Back Mining Ghana Limited ("Red Back") an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") to earn an interest in three prospecting licenses located in the Ashanti Belt in central Ghana (the "Project" as further described in Figures 1 and 2).

The LOI provides Ashanti with the right to earn 100% of Red Back's interest in the Project by expending US$1.0M on exploration over two years (the "Option Agreement"). The Ghanaian government retains a 10% carried interest in all minerals projects in Ghana, therefore upon completion of the earn-in agreement Ashanti will have a 90% net interest.

The Option Agreement will be preceded by a due diligence and title curative period (the "Due Diligence Period") that may be up to 12 months from the date of the LOI. At any time during this 12-month period, Ashanti will have the sole and exclusive right to initiate the Option Agreement. Ashanti will be the operator of exploration and development programs on the Project during the Due Diligence Period and during the term of the Option Agreement. Upon completion of its earn-in rights, Ashanti will have acquired 100% of Red Back's interest in the Project, subject to Red Back retaining a 2% net smelter royalty.

The Project consists of three licenses: Kwahu Oda, Asankare, New Abirem. The project covers a total area of approximately 68 km2 in the prolific Ashanti Belt of Ghana. These licenses have been selected to build on previous work by Red Back. and Newmont Mining Corporation ("Newmont"). Their location is based on the presence of shear-zone-hosted gold targets similar to those found along the northwest and southeast margins of the Ashanti Belt. Directly to the south of the Project is Newmont's Akyem mine, which was commissioned in 2013 and produced 473,000 ounces of gold in 2015, making it one of the largest annual gold producers in the world.

On the Kwahu Oda license in 2003 Red Back drilled 2,495m Reverse Circulation ("RC") holes to an average depth of 29m. Highlight historical results for these RC holes for gold mineralization include: 10m @ 8.8 g/t, 11m @ 1.5 g/t, 8m @ 3.1 g/t, 7m @ 3.9 g/t, 5m @ 2.5 g/t. (This information is based on incomplete, previously unpublished historic data provided by Red Back. This information is historic in nature and is not part of any resource estimate).

Ashanti Gold Signs Formal Option Agreement for Kossanto East
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 28, 2016 / Ashanti Gold Corp. (TSXV: AGZ) ("Ashanti" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a formal option agreement with Alecto Minerals PLC ("Alecto"), an AIM-listed public company, to earn an interest in the Kossanto East Gold Project (the "Project") in western Mali, following upon a Letter of Intent announced on August 22, 2016 (http://www.ashantigoldcorp.com/news/2016/ashanti-gold-announces-mali-gold-project-earn-in-agreement). Ashanti has the right to earn 65% of Alecto's interest (after including the Mali State carried interest of 10%, Ashanti ownership of the property upon completion of the earn-in agreement will be 58.5%) in the Project by completing a Preliminary Feasibility Study ("PFS") within 36 months following the date of TSX-V approval (the "Option Period"). Ashanti has the right to extend the Option Period to complete PFS by an additional 12 months for a cash payment of US$280,000 (payable in 6 month tranches of US$140,000 each). Additionally, Ashanti may elect to pay in cash US$4.0M to Alecto within 90 days following the end of the Option Period in lieu of producing a PFS. Ashanti will be the operator of the exploration and development programs during the Option Period.

Upon completion of its earn in rights, Ashanti and Alecto will form a joint venture whereby each party will contribute proportionally to the Project's continuing exploration and development with standard dilution clauses regarding Project funding. If either party's interest is reduced to 10% or less (not including the Mali State interest), that interest will be converted into a 1.5% net smelter return royalty (the "NSR") which the other party will have the right for one year to purchase by paying US$100,000 for each 0.1% of the NSR.

The Kossanto East Project is a 66.41 km2 concession in the prolific Kedougou - Kenieba Inlier, the northwestern most exposure of Birimian rocks in West Africa. The Property hosts two principle drill-tested targets, Gourbassi East ("GE") and Gourbassi West ("GW") and several surface anomalies. Geochemical anomalies identified by previous explorers and Alecto led to drill testing, successful intersection of gold mineralization. Both areas remain open along strike and down dip and include impressive drill intercepts. One of the other target areas (Berola) has been tested with shallow Rotary Airblast Drilling (RAB) and returned positive, first-pass intercepts.

Gourbassi East is a NNW striking mineralised zone with significant gold grades (multi-meter intercepts at greater than 2 g/t) located within a body of felsic volcanics. The Gourbassi West prospect lies approximately 3.7 km WNW of Gourbassi East. Similar gold intercepts are associated with silicified sandstones and NNW striking zone of mineralization.

The Kossanto East Project is located within the highly gold-endowed West Mali Gold Belt which extends approximately 180 km in a north-south direction along the Mali-Senegal border. The Project lies near the intersection of the Senegal-Mali Shear Zone and the Main Transcurrent Shear Zone, two major structures within this district associated with numerous world class orogenic gold deposits. Over the last 20 years approximately 40M oz of gold have been discovered in proximity to these structures resulting in construction of at least 8 new mines, including the world class Loulo group of deposits, Sadiola, Yatela, Gounkoto, Segala, Tabakoto, and Sabodala.

Ashanti plans to commence field work before the end of the year. This work is aimed at advancing mapping of the GW and GE targets, key rock types, and structure which localizes mineralization. This work will help the Company plan the next phase of drilling that is anticipated to commence late in Q1 2017.

Paul Klipfel, Ashanti's COO and Chief Geologist, said "We are very excited about this opportunity as we see extensive carbonate alteration, silicification, and multi-stage veining in felsic volcanic rocks. These are attractive features in any greenstone setting, but here they are very significant for their similarity to known mineralization at other deposits in this belt."

ABOUT ASHANTI GOLD
