The Frotet - Robert Property is comprised of five designated claims covering 816.5 hectares in 32J15 NTS Map Sheet. The vendor of the property discovered a copper/zinc/gold/silver mineralized zone at the contact between mafic volcanics and a gabbro intrusive. The mineralization was described as Besshi-type by Alain J. Beauregard of Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc. in an independent technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. Surface grab samples from the main zone assayed 5.32% copper, 1.67% zinc, 24.6 ppm silver and 0.227 ppm gold and 0.94% copper, 979 ppm zinc 6.2 ppm silver and 2.5 ppm gold.
Under the option agreement, Threegold can earn a 100% interest in the Frotet - Robert Property by making a cash payment of $5,000 and issuing 100,000 common shares to the vendor at signing, issuing an additional 100,000 common shares to the vendor on the first anniversary of the signing of the option agreement, and incurring $50,000 in exploration expenditures on the property by the first anniversary of the signature of the option agreement and an additional $100,000 by the second anniversary. The vendor of the property will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty (NSR), half of which may be bought back by Threegold for $1,000,000. The vendor will also be entitled to receive 250,000 additional common shares of Threegold as a bonus if the Frotet - Robert Property reaches the production stage. The option agreement is subject to regulatory approval.
Acquisition of the Gasse - Lemieux Property
Threegold announces that it has also entered into a letter agreement under which it can acquire the Gasse - Lemieux Property located in the Gaspesie Region of Quebec.

The vendor will also be entitled to receive 500,000 additional common shares of Threegold as a bonus if the Gasse - Lemieux Property reaches the production stage. The letter agreement is subject to regulatory approval.
