VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Venerable Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: VLV) ("Venerable" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, pursuant to an amendment agreement (the "Amendment") dated May 15, 2014 with Robert Carmichael and Landmark Geological Inc. (the "Optionors"), it has increased the size of its Trout Property (the "Property") located in the Nechako Plateau, near Vanderhoof, British Columbia and extended the terms of the option agreement (the "Option Agreement") dated April 26, 2011 with the Optionors, whereby the Company can acquire a 100% in the Property. The terms of the Option Agreement were disclosed in the Company's News Release of May 19, 2011. Two additional claims totaling approximately 2,360 hectares have been added to the Property. The Property now comprises 24 mineral tenures with a total area of approximately 9,631 hectares.
The additional claims enclose ten new areas that contain gold and co-incident multi-element till geochemical anomalies. These areas have received little if any follow-up work and will be ground inspected in the coming weeks. Mineralization at the main Discovery Zone on the Property is a low-sulphidation gold-silver epithermal system hosted by silica-adularia altered breccias in polymictic conglomerate and rhyodacite. At the main Discovery Zone, several new drill targets remain top priority for testing.
The third anniversary payment of $180,000 and issuance of 400,000 shares of the Company, due May 23, 2014 has been extended by 18 months to November 23, 2015, along with the remaining exploration expenditures required under the Option Agreement. In consideration for the addition of the new claims and the extension of the Option Agreement, the Company will make additional payments totaling $20,000 and issue 400,000 additional shares to the Optionors. The Company will also undertake a surface exploration program prior to August 31, 2014 on the new claims with a work commitment of $20,000. The Amendment, the share issuance and the payment obligations thereunder remain subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
