Affinity Gold Corp. Announces Proposed Acquisition of 49% Stake in Near-Term Production Project in Colombia

MAPLE GROVE, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Affinity Gold Corp. (OTC Pink: AFYG) (PINKSHEETS: AFYG) ("Affinity" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that pursuant to the strategic joint venture with private Canadian junior Alicanto Mining Corp. ("Alicanto"), announced on May 7, 2014, it has entered into an agreement for the acquisition of a 49% interest, with the possibility to acquire up to a 75% interest, in Alicanto's Rionegro project located in Santander, Colombia.

The Rionegro project is located in an area represented by a very large Horst/Graben structure in Paleozoic Carbonaceous Conglomerates and other metasedimentary rocks. The Graben serves as the basin of the main river in the area carrying gold in the active sediments and in Tertiary paleoplacers which are amenable to near-term production. The project comprises Alicanto's 7.66 square kilometer license as well as approximately 190 square kilometers surrounding the license for which Alicanto has filed applications with Colombia's National Mining Agency.

Project Highlights

  • 766 hectares fully-owned and controlled outright with no third-party arrangements outside the joint-venture partners.
  • Accessible project located approximately 40 Km from Bucaramanga, Colombia's sixth largest city, with very good infrastructure providing ready access to water, power, and labor.
  • Very prospective geological structures for both hard rock and alluvial targets.
  • Current alluvial mining operations by third-parties in nearby paleoplacers confirms the area's prospectivity.
  • Focus on attaining near-term production from Rionegro's paleoplacers to be followed by an exploration program for the rest of the project.

Terms of Agreement
Under the agreement, Alicanto has granted Affinity the right to a 49% ownership interest in the Rionegro project subject to Affinity contributing an aggregate of $250,000 over a set schedule which the parties expect will be completed in 2014, with the possibility to acquire an additional 26% interest, totaling 75% of the overall project.

Alicanto's Executive Chairman, Mr. Raziel Zisman, stated that "Alicanto's agreement with Affinity regarding the Rionegro project validates the premise of our Strategic Partnership namely joining forces, skills and resources, to generate short- and long-term value for both Affinity's and Alicanto's shareholders."

Affinity's President & CEO, Mr. Corey Sandberg, stated that "this initial project in our strategic joint-venture relationship with Alicanto demonstrates the ability of value to be created for both companies. The Rionegro project itself is a perfect fit for Affinity and meets the Company's model requirements for near-term production projects that offer substantial upside in exploration potential."
