VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - Belmont Resources Inc. ("Belmont", the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BEA)(PINKSHEETS:BEAAF)(FRANKFURT:L3L) is pleased to announce it is arranging a non-brokered private placement to raise up to $600,000.
The Company will be issuing 5.0 million units at $0.12. Each unit will consist of one common share and one two year transferable share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of two years at a price of $0.18 per share.
The Company will pay a finder's fee of up to 8% in cash or warrants. The financing will be subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
In 2013 the Company contracted Geosig Inc. of Quebec who completed approx. 46.2 km. of induced polarization (TDIP) geophysical survey with a dipole-dipole configuration on the three areas line cut, as recommended in the NI 43-101 Report. The Company will use the funds for working capital and to continue ground geophysics and diamond drilling to test the high-priority anomalous zones and strong IP anomalies which identified new exploration targets on the Berthiaume ("Be") property in the Abitibi, Northwestern Quebec area in the Harricana-Turgeon Belt. The property is located halfway between the towns of Matagami and Lebel-sur-Quevillon.
The exploration program will be coordinated and supervised by Pierre O'Dowd, P.Geo., the Company's new V.P. of Exploration.
Previous exploration was done by Umex (1971), Shell Canada (1980) and Noranda Exploration (1983). In each case, exploration was directed at the many east-west conductive zones observed on the interpretation maps, with a target of volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization detectable by EM airborne surveys. Umex drilled a few holes, intersecting semi-massive pyrite-pyrrhotite mineralization and graphitic sediments with traces of sulphides. In 1987, Falconbridge staked a large property including both Be blocks focusing on exploration for gold.
The Company has arranged a Quebec office for additional information and contact regarding the Abitibi area properties. The address is Suite 725, 999 De Maissonneuve W., Montreal, Quebec H3A 3L4 and telephone #514-845-1101.
