Thursday, March 2, 2017: RT MINERALS CORP. INCREASES BALLARD LAKE HOLDINGS TO 36,155 HECTARES
Vancouver, B.C. – March 2, 2017 ‐ RT Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: RTM) (the “Company”) announces that it has more than doubled the size of its 100% owned Ballard Lake gold and diamond property located approximately 50 kilometres northeast of Wawa, Ontario, through new staking. At the recommendation of the Company’s geologist, Kevin Kivi, P.Geo., the Company has staked an additional 1,257 units to increase the property’s size to 36,155 hectares (361 km2).
Additional staking was required to cover areas of anomalous kimberlite indicator minerals in till amongst Keating Magnetic Correlation Coefficient anomalies identified by the Geological Survey of Canada when compiling regional magnetics in the area. A Keating Coefficient highlights a magnetic response that resembles a modelled kimberlite pipe.
The new claims are subject to a 2% net smelter royalty, with 1% buyback for $1,000,000, as staking is contiguous and surrounds the original property.
Kevin Kivi, P.Geo., QP for the Company’s Ballard Lake property, has explored for diamonds and gold in Canada since 1983, and approves the technical content of this press release.
