Inomin Signs Agreement to Acquire La Gitana Gold-Silver Project Drilling at La Gitana delineates potential near-surface bulk-tonnage deposit
Vancouver, British Columbia, June 3, 2019 – Inomin Mines Inc. (TSX.V: MINE) (“Inomin” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the signing of a non-binding letter agreement (the “Agreement”) with Gunpoint Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: GUN) to acquire a 100% interest in the La Gitana gold-silver property (“La Gitana” or “Property”) located in Oaxaca State, Mexico (the “Transaction”). La Gitana comprises a 494 hectare property situated within a major northwest trending regional structure that host several mineral deposits including Gold Resource’s (NYSE: GORO) La Aguila open-pit gold-silver mine and Fortuna Silver’s (TSX: FVI) San Jose underground gold-silver mine. The terms of the Agreement provide for an exclusivity period to complete due diligence and contemplate entering into a definitive agreement to finalize purchase terms of the Transaction.
La Gitana hosts a low-sulphidation gold-silver epithermal system in Tertiary-aged volcanic rocks. Gold and silver mineralization occurs in multistage quartz breccia-veins, quartz stockworks and locally as disseminations. The Property contains two subparallel northwest trending mineralization and alteration corridors extending up to 4 kilometres in strike, with widths ranging between 50 and 300 metres: the Cerro Di Oro corridor to the northeast and the La Gitana corridor to the southwest.
The Cerro di Oro structural zone (corridor) is a quartz breccia-vein and stockwork system with electrum (gold and silver) within quartz veinlets. Steeply dipping gold and silver mineralization has been traced on surface over a 1.4 kilometer by 300 meter area. The La Gitana corridor contains narrow gold-silver veins with minor base metals.
The source of the technical information provided herein is from a NI 43-101 technical report prepared on behalf of Chesapeake Gold Corp. (TSXV: CKG) by Andris Kikauka, P.Geo., dated November 23, 2006. A 38-hole (8,231 metres) diamond drilling program, completed in 2006 by Chesapeake Gold Corp., tested a 900 metre long portion of the corridors’ area confirming the existence and continuity of gold-silver epithermal mineralization. Drilling intersected notable gold mineralized intersections in a zone approximately 400 to 500 meters long, 50 to 150 meters wide, and 50 to 200 meters deep. The gold-silver zones remain open along strike and at depth.

Note: All grade intersections reported in above table are core interval lengths and not true thicknesses. All drillcore was HQ and NQ sized. Core sampling was completed on half core segments over 1.5 to 3.0 metre (m) intervals. Most samples were sent for preparation to ALS Chemex laboratory in Guadalajara, Mexico; prepared samples were sent to ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver, Canada for gold by fire assay and 4-acid digestion ICP multi-element analyses.
Inomin intends to complete due diligence verification work on historic drill results including re-logging of core and taking core duplicate samples on selected drill holes.
Inomin may acquire a 100% interest in the Property in consideration for total payments of $300,000 and 2,000,000 common shares of the Company as follows.
Payment of $10,000 (paid) on signing Agreement;
Payment of $25,000 and 150,000 shares following execution of definitive agreement; Payment of $50,000 and 250,000 shares on first anniversary;
Payment of $65,000 and 450,000 shares on second anniversary;
Payment of $75,000 and 500,000 shares on third anniversary; and
Payment of $75,000 and 650,000 shares on fourth anniversary.
Inomin will have the right to accelerate payments at the Company’s discretion. The Property is also subject to a NSR, the terms of which have yet to be finalized.
John Gomez President & CEO of Inomin Mines, says “La Gitana presents an opportunity to acquire an advanced precious metal project prospective for a near-surface gold-silver mineral deposit. I look forward to working with Randy Reifel and his team to complete our property evaluation and build on the exploration success at La Gitana.”
