Del Toro Signs Purchase Option Agreement for The Natchez Pass Gold Property

 

Carson City, Nevada (September 18, 2012) – Del Toro Silver Corp. (OTCBB: DTOR) (“Del Toro” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, on August 31, 2012, the Company entered into a Partial Purchase Option Agreement with Natchez Pass LLC to acquire up to a 67.5% interest in the Natchez Pass Gold Property (formerly known as the “Nick” mine) located in Pershing County, Nevada (“Property”).

 

The mine is located near Barber Canyon, approximately 5 miles south of the historic Dun Glen Mining district, and consists of 25 lode and 8 placer mining claims (all unpatented) encompassing a total of 660 acres. The Property exhibits good potential for both lode and placer gold deposits with over 2500 feet of underground workings and a past history of hard rock and placer production.

 

The mine is fully permitted for production mining, with all necessary water rights, environmental approvals and a reclamation bond posted. Existing infrastructure at the site includes a 400-yard-per-hour placer processing plant, 3 lined recirculation ponds, a 50,000 gallon water storage tank, and a 2 bedroom house and mine office.

 

In order to earn the option, over a five year period the Company is required to pay $4,005,000, as follows: payments to Natchez Pass LLC; certain repayments on behalf of Natchez Pass LLC; and certain amounts for work on the Property.  The Company must also issue up to 5,000,000 restricted shares of common stock to Natchez Pass LLC. If the Company fully exercises its option to earn a 67.5% interest, the Company then has the right to earn up to an additional 7.5% interest at the price of $150,000 per point.

 

Del Toro has a 60-day due diligence period, with two 60-day extensions available. During this period the Company plans to conduct a bulk sampling program to evaluate the placer potential and develop a mining plan to determine operational feasibility.

 

Del Toro president Greg Painter states “We are excited about completing the acquisition option of the Natchez Pass Gold Property, as it perfectly fits our corporate strategy of acquiring mines with the capability for cost effective, near term production. The mine is located in eastern Nevada near some of the largest and most profitable gold mines in the United States. We plan to commence our due diligence work plan immediately and, upon its satisfactory completion, close as quickly as possible on the option.”
