Osisko and Globex Build Project Value at Wood-Pandora

What’s interesting about this is the very different business models of the 2 companies involved. Osisko is a gold miner who is looking to increase their resources along a prolific gold belt. Globex is solely focused on developing value in its portfolio of exploration properties.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Oct. 1, 2013) – GLOBEX MINING ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX:GMX)(FRANKFURT:G1M)(OTCQX:GLBXF) is pleased to provide results from the current drill campaign on the Wood-Pandora property located in Cadillac Township, Quebec in joint venture with Osisko Mining Corporation.

This property is a 50/50 joint with Globex and Osisko. It is adjacent to Osisko’s Pandora Project and along trend with Osisko’s Kirkland Lake Project and Canadian Malartic Mine. Osisko inherited this JV as part of it’s purchase of Queenston Mining. Globex and Queenston worked on the Pandora-Wood project for nine years. Globex has been working the project since 1997.

What’s interesting about this is the very different business models of the 2 companies involved. Osisko is a gold miner who is looking to increase their land position and resources along this prolific gold belt. Globex on the other hand, is a company focused on developing value in its portfolio of exploration properties. With more than 100 properties, Globex focuses on optioning, royalties, joint-ventures and the outright sale of properties. Its exploration budget is relatively small and appears to be focused on those properties where it can build the most value.

Option agreements can be a good income earner for property owners. Generally the transactions involve cash and shares with the optioning company absorbing the cost of the exploration program. The owner generally retains a net smelter royalty and if certain commitments are not met, the property reverts back to the owner. Properties may be optioned over and over again with the owners benefiting from the incremental value added by exploration work performed by others on their property.

At September 25, 2013, within an expanded drill program, eighteen (18) drill holes have been completed. The drill holes are widely spaced and designed to explore the stratigraphy at depth over the entire 3.5km strike length of the Cadillac Break across the Property in zones previously untested. One of the holes was drilled in the Amm Shaft area.

The “Cadillac Break”, is part of a large scale structural fault system that extends from Val d’Or, Quebec east to Timmins, Ontario and hosts several world class gold mining camps. The gold was deposited by structurally controlled hydrothermal activity in the Archean aged (2.5+ billion years old) greenstone belt. Similar large scale fault systems host many of the gold deposits in the Canadian Shield.

Complete assay results are now available from an additional drill hole.

Hole W-13-17 returned two gold intersections, at close proximity, with a combined core length of 11.8 metres (38.7 ft) grading 15.1 g/t Au (0.44 oz/T Au).
