Quimbaya Gold Inc. Advances Strategic Growth with Proposed Acquisition of New Mining Title in Segovia, Colombia


VANCOUVER, BC – June 17, 2024 - Quimbaya Gold Inc. (“Quimbaya Gold” or the "Company") (CSE: QIM, OTCQB: QIMGF) is pleased to announce the signing of a definitive agreement for the acquisition of an additional mining property with gold and silver exploration potential, encompassing approximately 252 hectares.  The new secured title is SE9-13331 (252.7 Ha), referred to as the “Concession Contract,”, is continuous northeast of Aris Mining’s Segovia operation which significantly expands Quimbaya Gold's foothold in the burgeoning mining landscape of Segovia, situated northeast of Medellín, the regional capital of the Department of Antioquia, Colombia. 

"We are thrilled to announce the signing of the definitive agreement for this significant mining property, which not only enhances our gold and silver exploration potential but also solidifies our presence in the highly prospective Segovia mining district. This strategic expansion underscores our commitment to advancing our exploration activities and creating value for our shareholders. The new Concession Contract, located contiguous to Aris Mining’s renowned Segovia operation, positions Quimbaya Gold favorably in one of Colombia’s most prolific mining regions. We are excited about the opportunities this acquisition brings and look forward to the positive impact it will have on our growth trajectory”, comments Alexandre P. Boivin, CEO of Quimbaya Gold.

The concession SE9-13331 covers 252.7 ha and is located immediately NE of the Aris Segovia Au-Ag project, and hence shares most of its geological features in terms of lithology, alteration, structure and mineralization styles. Accordingly, the geology of concession SE9-13331 is dominated by igneous rocks of intermediate composition, comprising medium to coarse grained locally pegmatitic biotite and hornblende-bearing granodiorites and tonalitiques incorporating minor pulses of dioritic and monzogranitic composition, all assigned to the Jurassic Segovia Batholith, the dominant wall rock to productive Au quartz vein mineralization in the area. In the northern parts of the concession, the Segovia Batholith is covered by a strongly tectonized volcano-sedimentary succession of Cretaceous age, with nature of contact largely undefined. A strong magnetic anomaly locates towards central-southern parts of the concession is used as evidence to postulate that a stock of possible mafic (i.e., gabbroic) composition intrudes the Segovia Batholith. A set of NNE striking dikes of andesitic composition crosscut the intrusive rocks and also the volcano-sedimentary sequence above described.

On structural grounds, analysis of surface and underground structural data along with appropriate geomorphological and imagery analysis allow the definition of various structural trends with some of them exerting a first-order control on the emplacement of Au-bearing quartz veining. The presence of various sets of structures is conceived as a product of various deformation pulses, varying from compressional to extensional. A first set of structures exhibit a NNE strike and dips moderately ESE, and herein interpreted as WNW verging thrusts faults which exerted a primary control on the precipitation of productive structures such as Sandra K and Vera, as that characterized as vein-faults, with features proper of orogenic Au deposits with wall rock altered to quartz-sericite (± pyrite). Thin vein-faults mapped on NW parts of concession SE9-13331 are included on this set and structural model suggests that they are paralleling but are overlying NE extensions of Sandra K and possibly Vera veins which are located on deeper levels of structural block on concession SE9-13331 (see below). A second set of structures have a dominant NE strike and dip steeply to NW, which are crosscutting set 1 of structures and exhibit reverse-dextral kinematics and interpreted as branching out from the K fault mapped on the Segovia Project and characterized as a SE verging thrust. A third set of structures incorporates normal faults and herein grouped as Cianurada and Cianurada 2 types. Former type has dominant NE strikes and dips steeply SE and includes the San Nicolas Fault, whereas Cianurada 2-type strike NW and dips NE. These extensional structures exerted a control on the Z shaped riverbed of the Cianurada creek and, in turn, delimit a rhomb-shaped structural block on concession SE9-13331. A set of NNW striking veins known as Douglas type are interpreted as formed under an extensional regime. 

As compensation for the Concession Contract, the Company will be paying a total amount of USD $205,000. The payment schedule is as follows: Payment 1 of USD $50,000 at the signing of the purchase agreement; Payment 2 of USD $75,000 before 31 May 2024; and Payment 3 made at twelve months after signing for USD $80,000. The vendor of the Concession Contract will retain a 3% Net Smelter Return.
