CB Gold Inc. (TSX-V: CBJ) (“CB Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received confirmation from the National Geological Service of Colombia (formerly Ingeominas) that its 100% owned Real Minera property has been converted to a concession contract with an initial 20 year duration, securing the long-term development potential of the property. The duration of the concession contract can be extended for an additional 20 years after the initial 20 year term.
On October 24th, 2011 the Company announced the discovery of a new mineralized zone at the Real Minera property, with subsequent additional results confirming the presence of significant intercepts of consistent mineralization and extending the horizontal and vertical extension of the mineralization. The Company’s drilling program for 2012 will focus on the along strike and vertical extension of this new zone, and drilling of additional targets generated by the geophysics, structural geology study and drilling results from 2011.
Fabio Capponi, Chief Executive Officer noted “Converting the original license of exploitation into a 20 year concession contract allows for the long-term development of the 100% owned Real Minera Property and the Vetas Gold Project and demonstrates the Company’s ability to work successfully with the regional and central authorities in Colombia.”.
