Infrastructure Materials Corp is pleased to announce the acquisition of Canadian Infrastructure Corp. (CIC) a privately held company holding three cement grade limestone properties known as the Dauphin, the Winnipegosis and the Spence Lake properties located in southern Manitoba.
The Dauphin property is located 10 km southwest of the city of Dauphin, Manitoba, while the Winnipegosis and Spence properties are located 12 km and 18 km, respectively, southeast of the village of Winnipegosis, Manitoba. All outstanding shares of CIC were acquired from Todd Montgomery, who is also CEO and a Director of the Company, at a cost of approximately US$409,000. This amount equates to Mr. Montgomery’s out of pocket cost of forming CIC, and CIC’s acquisition of the quarry leases on which the properties are located, exploration work and reports. Payment was made in restricted common shares of the Company at an agreed price of US$0.40 per share for a total of 1,021,777 shares.
Significant geological work and drilling has been completed on the properties. A Preliminary Feasibility Study conducted by Cameco in 1989 recommended that a cement plant be built and that the project proceed to final feasibility. Test work showed that excellent cement of all types could be made from the material.
The following is a quote from a NI 43-101 compliant report prepared for CIC:
"In January 2009, a US$185,000 diamond drill program was carried out by
Canadian Infrastructure Corp. The intent of this program was to verify
the results of the historic drilling, to fill in some missing drill
holes, and to extend exploration to the North West. A total of thirty
eight holes were drilled with a spacing of about 400 meters between
holes. Seven of those holes were drilled to find an extension of the
Marcos formation. The holes were drilled along road allowances that
border the quarry leases. The drilling verified the grade and thickness
established by Cameco’s historic drilling. Using the results of the 2009
and 1988-89 drilling, the authors estimate that an estimated inferred
mineral resource of 89Mt grading (greater than) 42 per cent CaO are
present on the quarry lease."
Management believes this property is situated to competitively reach markets in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, western Ontario, Minnesota, North Dakota and Montana.
This Canadian asset acquisition adds to the Company’s impressive cache of cement grade limestone projects in the United States. Presently, the Company’s primary focus is on the development of the Blue Nose and Morgan Hill Projects in Nevada. The Morgan Hill Project is strategically located to supply the Reno, Salt Lake City, southern Idaho, Sacramento, and San Francisco markets. The Blue Nose Project is strategically located to supply the Las Vegas and Los Angeles markets. The Company plans to aggressively develop the Blue Nose Project through to pre-feasibility. Subject to BLM approval of a Plan of Operation, an extensive drill program is expected to begin this spring on the Blue Nose Project to define the resource.
Infrastructure Materials Corp. is an exploration stage mining company that is directing its efforts to the development of cement grade limestone deposits in strategic locations in the United States and Canada.
