Xmet Inc. ("Xmet" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:XME)(XMTTF) is pleased to announce that it has extended the closing date for its purchase of the Pitt Gold Project from Brionor Resources Inc. ("Brionor") to December 17, 2012. Xmet requested the extension of the Pitt Gold acquisition so that it will close concurrently with Xmet''s acquisition of Clifton Star Inc.''s ("Clifton Star") Duquesne Mine property, announced in a news release dated September 20th, 2012. Xmet''s acquisitions of the 100% owned Pitt Gold and Duquesne Mine properties will consolidate all of the Duquesne District''s NI 43-101 compliant and contiguous gold resources to 1,233,000 ounces inferred and 355,000 ounces indicated. Please refer the Table below for the total resource details on Xmet''s Duquesne District.
RESOURCE TABLE FOR THE DUQUESNE DISTRICT CONSOLIDATION
|Indicated Ounces||Inferred Ounces|
|Clifton Star''s Duquesne Mine||1,860,000||3.33||199,000||1,560,000||5.58||280,000|
|Brionor''s Pitt Resource||600,000||7.83||156,000||476,000||6.91||100,000|
NI 43-101 technical reports for Xmet''s Duquesne Ottoman, Clifton Star''s Duquesne Mine property and Brionor''s Pitt Gold Project are available under their respective corporate profiles at www.sedar.com. To the best of the Xmet''s knowledge, information, and belief, there is no new material scientific or technical information that would make the disclosure of the mineral resources, mineral reserves or results of a preliminary economic assessment set forth in the Technical Report published by Brionor inaccurate or misleading.
The Pitt Gold resource aligns with Xmet''s Stinger Zone where Xmet has delineated a substantial gold resource. The intervening area has been insufficiently drill tested, mainly due to drill permitting complexity related to positioning of drill collars, an issue that will be solved by the purchase of the Pitt Gold Project. Between the Pitt and Stinger zones there are over 900 metres of strike along this horizon and at depth that are open for additional exploration and discovery. With the completion of the acquisition of the Pitt Gold Project, drill permitting issues will be largely eliminated and this target area will be a focus of our exploration in the near future.
In exchange for 100% ownership of the Pitt Gold Project, Xmet has agreed to issue Brionor a maximum of 10.56% of its outstanding shares after Xmet has exercised its option from Globex and completed the concurrent Duquesne Mine acquisition from Clifton Star. Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, the exercise of Xmet''s option to purchase a minimum 75% interest in Duquesne-Ottoman Project (see Xmet''s press release dated March 5, 2012), obtaining any necessary approvals, as well as the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").
