The Beacon project adjoins Sabre’s recently acquired Bonanza Gold Project, increasing the company’s ground in the prospective Youanmi district.
A share placement will also been undertaken after several offers were received for additional investment into the company, with the aim of raising $540,000 for exploration and project development.
Rapid investor attention
Sabre chairman Michael Scivolo said the company considered the proposed acquisition of Scarce and Beacon an opportunity to consolidate Sabre’s tenement holding in the Youanmi district.
He added: “The Youanmi district area is host to several exciting high-grade gold discoveries, including the recently discovered northern extension of the Penny West Gold Project owned by Spectrum Metals Limited (ASX:SPX).
“The region has gained rapid investor attention with several companies reporting significant exploration success on their gold projects located in the same area.
“Through this proposed acquisition, Sabre is now able to increase its exposure to this rapidly expanding gold district.”
The Youanmi gold mining district has gained investor attention with several companies including Rox Resources Ltd (ASX:ROX) and Venus Metals Corporation Ltd (ASX:VMC) reporting substantial exploration success on their gold projects in the same area.
