EUREKA EARNS 100% INTEREST IN GOLD CREEK PROPERTY
Vancouver, British Columbia, July 20, 2017 - Eureka Resources Inc. (“Eureka” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed all requirements to earn a 100% interest in the Gold Creek property. The exploration expenditures incurred in Eureka’s May 2017 drill program satisfied the work commitment portion of the Gold Creek option. In addition, the Company has issued 150,000 common shares to Bullion Gold Resources Corp. (TSX-V: BGD) to complete the share commitment portion of the option agreement (see news release dated November 15, 2016).
The Gold Creek property is located in the historic Cariboo Gold district in central British Columbia. The property consists of 33 claims (9673.26 hectares) and is located 2 kms north of the village of Likely, B.C. and 6 kms northwest of the Spanish Mountain deposit. The Company owns 100% of the Gold Creek property, subject to a 1% NSR royalty in favour of Bullion Gold Resources Corp., half of which can be acquired by Eureka for $1,000,000.
Michael Sweatman, Eureka’s CEO stated, “Completion of this earn-in is consistent with Eureka’s objective of acquiring 100% interests in our properties. This allows us the flexibility to advance the properties directly or through joint ventures, avoiding the obligations that earn-in agreements impose.”
“Our thoughts are with the Cariboo residents whose lives have been disrupted by the current wildfire situation in BC.”
Eureka is an exploration focused company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, whose strategy is to acquire projects in prospective areas that have the potential to deliver important new discoveries and create value for its shareholders.
