BEARING RESOURCES EXECUTES OPTION AGREEMENT WITH
PRECIPITATE GOLD CORPORATION ON JAY EAST PROPERTY, YUKON
Bearing Resources Ltd. ("Bearing", or the "Company") (TSX-V: BRZ) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into an option agreement with Precipitate Gold Corporation ("Precipitate") whereby Precipitate can earn up to a 70% interest in the Company's Jay East Property ("Jay East"), located in the Watson Lake Mining District, the Yukon Territory.
To earn an initial 51% interest Precipitate must make cash payments totaling $480,000 and complete exploration expenditures totaling $2,000,000 over a five year period. Precipitate may earn an additional 19% interest by completing a feasibility study and making additional cash payments totaling $300,000.
Jay East comprises 108 claims covering 2,046 hectares and is located immediately to the east and south of Precipitate's REEF property. The REEF property contains a series of gold occurrences and gold-arsenic in soil anomalies originally known as "FER" that were discovered and outlined in the late 1990s, and which appear to be analogous to other reported occurrences in the Upper Hyland area. Jay East is thought to contain the same host rock and structural regime as the REEF property and will be explored for possible extensions of that gold mineralizing system.
