Probe Metals Inc. ("Probe" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired from Richmont Mines Inc. ("Richmont") a 100% interest in six mining claims (the "Claims") contiguous to the Company's Val-d'Or East Project, Quebec. The Claims are located immediately west of Probe's New Beliveau deposit, which contains the majority of the 770,000 ounce NI 43-101-compliant gold Mineral Resources reported in 2013. Owing to their close proximity to New Beliveau, the six claims enhance Probe's strategic land position by adding significant exploration and potential development value to the Val d'Or East project
In consideration of the six claims (see figure 1), Probe transferred four isolated mining claims, comprising its Beaufor West property, to Richmont. The claims are located wholly within Richmont's Beaufor Project and were considered non-core to the Val-d'Or East project.
