TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct 26, 2017) - Olivut Resources Ltd. ("Olivut" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OLV) provides HOAM project update and issues stock options.
Recent exploration on the HOAM Project has consisted of further in-depth analysis of the Company's extensive regional database. Numerous additional new geophysical anomalies have been defined up ice from the high interest kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) populations identified by Olivut. Detailed airborne magnetic surveys are required over these new anomalies to provide increased definition. It is anticipated that many additional targets will be added to the current drill priority list.
Also, recent modeling of many anomalies has confirmed additional high potential drill targets. The Company believes that targets slated for drilling are likely source areas for the high interest KIM populations and could represent diamondiferous kimberlite pipes. Accordingly, a detailed helimag program and drilling of at least 25 of the highest potential targets is planned as the next stage of exploration to be carried out in the spring and summer of 2018, depending on weather conditions and the availability of financing.
The Company also continues to evaluate other potential property opportunities to enhance shareholder value.
Olivut has been able to advance its HOAM Project despite the very long downturn experienced by the exploration sector and the related depressed world market atmosphere for equity financing of junior exploration companies such as Olivut.
In addition to this exploration news, the Company has granted stock options to certain Directors, Officers and Consultants of the Company pursuant to the Company's stock option plan to purchase up to 650,000 common shares in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.075 per common share. The stock options shall expire on October 25, 2027.
The grant of options is subject to regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Olivut is a diamond exploration company with a 100% mineral interest in approximately 100,000 acres in the HOAM Project in Canada's Northwest Territories. Please visit www.olivut.com for detailed corporate and project information.
