TORONTO, ONTARIO–(March 4, 2013) - KWG Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KWG) (“KWG”) and Bold Ventures Inc. (“Bold”) have now closed their agreement through which they may acquire from Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (“Fancamp”) its interest in the mining claims hosting the Black Horse chromite occurrence. As previously reported, KWG will fund 100% of the exploration programs operated by Bold to enable Bold to earn the interest under its option agreement with Fancamp. For the funding, KWG will earn an 80% interest in Bold’s interest in chromite minerals identified and a 20% interest in non-chromite minerals.
“We are very hopeful of being able to demonstrate at Black Horse an economic chromite deposit,” said KWG President Frank Smeenk. “A substantial drilling program towards that goal is now being mobilized with $3 million released from escrow on closing today for this season’s work. I think everyone fully appreciates how success in this could impact the viability of our proposed railroad. The production of other added value downstream products derived from the chromite can be envisaged in selected locations served by the railway.”
About KWG: KWG has a 30% interest in the Big Daddy chromite deposit and the right to earn 80% of the Black Horse chromite where resources are being defined in a drilling program this winter. KWG also owns 100% of Canada Chrome Corporation which has staked claims and conducted a $15 million surveying and soil testing program for the engineering and construction of a railroad to the Ring of Fire from Exton, Ontario.
