Rogue management felt that this transaction would maximize shareholder value by
placing the iron ore and gold into separate entities.
Rapier will focus its business primarily on the exploration and development of
the Pen Gold Property, which consists of a large land position located on the
gold bearing Porcupine-Destor
Fault Zone, located in Ontario's famous Timmins
gold camp. This area is one of the world's most productive gold belts, and has
reportedly produced in excess of 70 million ounces of gold.
Rapier, along with its strategic partner AuRico Gold (TSX:AUQ), plans to
initiate a drilling program before the end of March. AuRico holds approximately
20% of the 22.5 million shares currently outstanding.
Drilling will consist of 20 holes, totalling 5,500 metres, in four areas, at a
cost of approximately $1.5 million.
The company also plans to spend $500,000 on 8 targets areas, previously
identified by Rio Tinto, which all warrant trenching and channel sampling.
Rio Tinto reported intersections of:
* 22.1 grams per tonne gold over 0.3 metres
* 9.96 grams per tonne gold 2.0 metres
* 13.3 grams per tonne gold over 0.3 metres
Once ground is clear of snow, a systemic mapping program will be commenced aimed
at generating drill targets for the 2013 winter drill program.
Freeman Smith, President & CEO of Rogue Iron Ore stated, "Good projects find a
way to get financed and the Pen Gold property, we believe, is an exceptional
project with promising potential. Rapier's partnership with the senior,
producing company AuRico Gold is a testament to the Project's geological
potential and we are looking forward to commencing the first drill program to
properly test this system."
