StrikePoint CEO Shawn Khunkhun commented: "With back to back property divestments, StrikePoint is demonstrating an ability to create a portfolio of shares in active junior mining companies. With over 20 gold and silver properties still under 100% ownership, it's our goal to continue on a path of M&A activity. We are giving our shareholders exposure to multiple companies and assets through this strategy. We will continue to focus our exploration on our flag ship projects Porter and Willoughby, while having other partners develop our non-core assets. With specific regard to the American Creek transaction, we are very excited to give our shareholders exposure not only to Glacier Creek and the Dunwell Property, but also the Treaty Creek Property. Treaty Creek is one of the most exciting new discoveries in the Golden Triangle that is 60% owned by Tudor Gold, 20% carried interest by both Teuton Resources and American Creek."
StrikePoint Gold is a gold exploration company focused on building high-grade precious metals resources in Canada. The company controls two advanced stage exploration assets in BC's Golden Triangle. The past-producing high-grade silver Porter Project and the high-grade gold property Willoughby, which is adjacent to Red Mountain. The company also owns a portfolio of gold properties in the Yukon.
