Anconia Enters Into Earn-In Option Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- Anconia Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARA) ("Anconia") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement (the "Agreement") with Cadillac Ventures Inc. ("Cadillac") whereby the Company will have the option to acquire up to a 100% interest in Cadillac's Grenfell Property (the "Property") in the Kirkland Lake area.

Under the terms of the Agreement Anconia can acquire a 60% interest (the "Option") upon (i) incurring expenditures on the Property of at least $275,000 by September 1, 2016, and (ii) issuing 2,000,000 common shares of Anconia to Cadillac.

Upon acquisition of the 60% interest, Anconia will have the option to acquire the remaining 40% interest in the Property for (i) $300,000 ($200,000 of which shall be paid in cash and $100,000 of which shall be paid by the issuance of common shares of Anconia at a deemed price of the average of the 20 days closing price prior to the day upon which Cadillac is notified the interest is to be earned), and (ii) Cadillac retaining a 2% net smelter return royalty in the Property, 1% of the NSR can be purchased by Anconia for a period of up to 2 years after achieving commercial production for the sum of $1,000,000.

The Agreement further provides that the Agreement can be accelerated by Anconia at its election. The Agreement is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About the Property

The Grenfell property consists of 16 patented claims and 2 staked claims for a total land position of approximately 4.3 square kilometers. The two staked claims are 67% owned by Cadillac, the remaining 33% being registered to a company that no longer exists. Cadillac will use its best efforts to obtain the remaining 33%, which upon completion will become part of the earn-in option agreement at no additional cost to Anconia. The Property is located west of the town of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, and approximately four kilometres west of the currently producing Macassa Mine.

A preliminary review of Ontario Assessment records and a technical report filed on SEDAR under the profile of Richview Resources which was acquired by Cadillac, has led to the following initial conclusions:


--  The Kirkland Lake Main Break (04) has been mapped to approximately 500m
    from the eastern boundary of the property.  
--  The Larder Lake Break is within 100 metres of the southern boundary of
    the property.  
--  The southern portion of the property is underlain by Temiskaming-Type
    Clastic Metasedimentary rocks, the same rock type which underlies many
    of the mines and deposits of the Kirkland Main Break.  
--  Previous work done on the southern portion of the property included
    detailed mapping which uncovered the contact between the Temiskaming and
    Huronian sediments, which is interpreted to be a fault, located about
    150m south of and parallel to Highway 568. This feature may relate to
    reactivation the Kirkland Main Break (04) to the east, with a similar
    strike.  
--  The property encompasses the historic Four Nations Shaft. The Four
    Nations area has undergone several exploration campaigns, which included
    the deepening of the shaft to 536 feet (163 m), with lateral development
    on several levels between 1926 and 1928, along with surface trenching.
    This work, and subsequent drilling, were all focused on several gold
    bearing zones identified in the early 1900's. Records of exploration
    results are not all presently available, however reference has been
    found to early trenches defining a 200 foot (61m) strike length of 0.25
    oz/T (8.57 g/t) Au over an average width of 7.8 feet (2.38 m) (source:
    "Technical Report on the Kirkland Lake Gold Property, Grenfell Township
    Larder Lake Mining Division, Ontario" by Howard J. Coates M. Sc.,
    P.Geo.). 
--  Since 1934 when the Four Nations Shaft closed, the property has had
    sporadic exploration with a total of only 34 drillholes totaling 6842m
    having been completed in 4 campaigns between 1934 and 2004. 

Mr. Jason Brewster, President and C.E.O. of Anconia commented, "Anconia remains committed to the exploration of its properties in Nunavut and the development of its zinc assets in Spain. However obtaining a property of such merit that can be explored inexpensively presents a significant opportunity to build Anconia's portfolio. The Grenfell property is in a gold camp which has been recently re-invigorated by a new interpretation, (Macassa Mine was re-opened based on north-south gold-bearing vein systems in contrast to the historic east-west trending structural controls) and the apparent lack of a thorough and modern exploration program on the property makes it an excellent exploration target. Anconia looks forward to exploring this property, initially with a field study, including a vigorous sampling program of all trenches and outcrops, and a reconstruction of the historic mining records in order to properly understand the structural setting of the gold mineralization. This will enable Anconia to establish a well-targeted drill program in the near future."
