Canadian company Puma Exploration has signed an agreement to buy the Jonpol Gold Project in Canada, in line with its development, exploration, acquisition and royalties/ownership (DEAR) Strategy.

Canadian company Puma Exploration has signed an agreement to buy the Jonpol Gold Project in Canada, in line with its development, exploration, acquisition and royalties/ownership (DEAR) Strategy.

The project is located in the Murray Brook area in Northern New Brunswick.

Numerous gold occurrences have been identified at the project site that are associated with gabbroic intrusions located along the Rocky Brook Millstream Fault (RBMF), which represents a major structure trending ENE formed by the Acadian Orogeny.

The Jonpol project covers 16 claim blocks across 2,745ha. It is strategically located only 5km north-west of the Murray Brook Project.

Puma said that very limited diamond drilling has been conducted on the property that is underlained by sedimentary rocks and other mafic intrusions.

The drill campaign results reported 1.13 g/t Au over 12.0m grading, 1.37g/t Au at 6.0m, 1.37g/t Au over 1.4m, 3.89g/t Au over 1.0m, and 2.78g/t Au over 1.5m grading.
