Bravada Options Signal Property to Terra Rossa Gold Ltd.

Bravada Gold Corporation (BVA.V) is pleased to report that, subject to all necessary approvals, its wholly owned U.S. Subsidiary, Bravo Alaska, Inc. (“The Company”), has signed an option agreement with Terra Rossa Gold Ltd. (“Terra Rossa”) for the Company’s Signal property, located along Nevada’s Battle Mountain/Eureka Gold trend in the northwest portion of the Eureka District. Within the district are several active exploration projects and Barrick’s Ruby Hill gold mine, located six kilometres to the east of Signal.

Terra Rosa can earn an initial 51% interest in the project by spending US$2,150,000 over a four-year period with staged work commitments, starting with $250,000 in the first year, and issuing to the Company 250,000 common shares commencing after the first anniversary. Terra Rosa can earn an additional 19% by further spending US$3,850,000 and issuing to the Company another 200,000 common shares over a subsequent three-year period.

Bravo Alaska, Inc. has conducted three rounds of drilling at Signal since 2005, demonstrating these pertinent geologic features:

  • Alteration and geochemistry are typical of Carlin-style mineralization.
  • The Company outlined with drilling two small zones of shallow, oxidized gold mineralization along the Mississippian unconformity, a common host horizon in Nevada capable of hosting large and high-grade deposits.
  • Other attractive host rocks are present, locally with strong Carlin-style alteration and geochemistry.
  • Core holes reveal strong solution cavity development that began during the Mississippian unconformity and continued during Tertiary hydrothermal activity, both along specific stratigraphic horizons and along high-angle faults that were conduits for mineralization.
  • Strong oxidation exists to depths exceeding 500m; deep oxidation is characteristic of large Carlin-type gold deposits.
  • The Company’s structural interpretation was verified by deep core holes, demonstrating the gold system was rotated after formation. This rotation affects the geometry of important host rocks and faults.
