Bold Ventures Acquires Option to Earn Up to 100% Interest in Koper Lake Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Bold Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BOL) ("Bold" or the "Company") is very pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with Fancamp Exploration Ltd. ("Fancamp") giving Bold the option to earn up to a 100% working interest in the Koper Lake Project (the "Property"). The Amendment Agreement amends the terms of the Earn-In Option Agreement announced in the Company's press release of May 7, 2012 to provide that once Bold has earned its 60% interest in the Koper Lake Project, it will then have two options for a period of 90 days following the date it earns its 60% interest. First, it can earn a further 20% interest in the Property by paying Fancamp $15,000,000 payable in equal installments over three years with half of the amount payable in cash and the balance payable, at Bold's option, through the issuance of common shares of Bold at the market price at the time the shares are issued with Fancamp retaining a carried interest (the "Carried Interest") in the Koper Lake Project. If the first option is exercised, Bold would then have the additional option to acquire from Fancamp the Carried Interest in exchange for a Gross Metal Royalty ("GMR") payable to Fancamp resulting in Bold holding a 100% interest in the Koper Lake Project. Fancamp would then be entitled to be paid 2% of the total revenue from the sale of all metals and mineral products from the Property from the commencement of Commercial Production. Once all of the capital costs to bring the Koper Lake Project to the production stage have been repaid entirely, the GMR may be scaled up to a maximum of 4% of the total revenue from the sale of all metals and mineral products from the Property depending upon the price of product sold from the Property.

Richard Nemis, President and CEO stated "I am very pleased that Bold has acquired the right to earn up to a 100% interest in the Koper Lake Project. This will be a tremendous benefit to the Bold shareholders going forward."

Bold can earn its initial 50% interest in the Property by making option payments totaling $1,500,000 (the first $300,000 option payment having been made) and expending $8,000,000 on exploration of the Property over 3 years after which a 50/50 joint venture would be formed between Bold and Fancamp. Bold can then earn a further 10% interest by making a further $700,000 option payment and delivering a positive feasibility study. The remaining option payments can be made in cash or common shares of Bold at Bold's option. The Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Richard Nemis, holds a 2% net smelter royalty interest ("2% NSR") in the four claims that comprise the Property pursuant to an agreement with Fancamp dated June 17, 2003 whereby he sold the property to Fancamp and retained the 2% NSR. Half of the royalty interest (a 1%NSR) can be purchased at any time prior to commencement of commercial production for $1,000,000. Richard Nemis has granted to Bold a right of first refusal on the remaining 1% NSR for no consideration.

About the Koper Lake Project

The Koper Lake Project is situated in the emerging Ring of Fire multimineral district, approximately 530 km north east of Thunder Bay in the James Bay Lowlands, northern Ontario.

The Property lies along the ultramafic Ring of Fire complex between the Eagle's Nest Ni-Cu-PGE and Blackbird chromite deposits belonging to Noront Resources to the west and southwest respectively and the Big Daddy and Black Thor chromite deposits belonging to Cliffs Resources and KWG Resources to the northeast. The Koper Lake Project offers a very exciting set of targets for magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE, chromite and hydrothermal Au-Cu mineralization.

In a press release dated October 28, 2011 Fancamp summarized its most significant diamond drill hole findings on the four claim Koper Lake Project. Bold released a project description and interpretation of the geology in a news release dated October 31, 2012.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
