Exploration rights to 22,000 hectares of geology favourable for BIF and VMS mineralization; 2012 drilling returned 2.7 m averaging 6.7 g/t gold in one zone and 6.8 m averaging 5.7 g/t gold in another; Historical Resource** of 800,000 tonnes grading 6 g/t gold (150,000 ounces of gold)
Alto Ventures Ltd is a TSX Venture Exchange listed gold and diamond exploration company trading under the symbol ATV.
The Company has acquired land holdings in north central Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Diamonds Properties that total almost 90,000 hectares through claim staking and the purchase/option of claims with favourable geology for diamonds. Alto's land holdings are located near the recently discovered diamondiferous kimberlites on the Pikoo property operated by North Arrow Minerals Inc.
In Quebec, the Company owns two gold projects including Destiny, which has an NI43-101 compliant Indicated Resource of approximately 10.8 million tonnes averaging 1.05 g/t gold (364,000 ounces) plus an Inferred Resource of approximately 8.3 million tonnes averaging 0.92 g/t gold (247,000 ounces)* at the DAC Deposit. Results from diamond drilling by Alto Ventures on the Darla Zone include 78.7 g/t gold over 1.0 m within an 8 m interval averaging 11.3 g/t gold in hole DES12-147. Gold values of 22.7 g/t over 1.05 m were intersected in DES12-154. Other mineralized intercepts at Darla include two zones in hole DES12-144 which assayed 1.05 g/t gold over 10 m in one zone and the other assayed 1.04 g/t gold over 11.0 m. The Darla Zone is located one km east of DAC along the same structure.
In Manitoba, Alto owns the Oxford Lake gold project which includes the historical Rusty gold deposit (800,000 tonnes grading 6 g/t gold, containing 150,000 ounces)**. In 2012 the Company drilled hole RUS12-03 in the Blue Jay area approximately two km on trend and east of the Rusty Deposit (Rusty-Blue Jay Trend). RUS12-03 intersected two zones of high-grade gold mineralization: Zone One - 2.7 m averaging 6.7 g/t gold including 22.5 g/t gold over 0.5 m and Zone Two - 6.8 m averaging 5.7 g/t gold including 11.7 g/t gold over 1.6 m and 16.5 g/t gold over 1.0 m.
Alto owns five gold projects in Ontario four of which are in the Beardmore-Geraldton gold camp. The Company is currently active at Miner Lake and Empress. Styles of mineralization and geological setting at Miner Lake have many similarities to that at the Cote Lake gold deposit being developed by IAMGOLD south of Timmins, Ontario.
* Todd McCracken, P.Geo, is a Qualified Person ("QP") for purposes of the NI 43-101 Report. He is responsible for preparing the Report and the Resource Estimate disclosed in the Report. Mr McCracken, at time of filing of the Report on SEDAR was an employee of Wardrop a Tetra Tech Company, and independent from the Companies as described in section 1.4 of NI 43-101.
**The Historical Resource was estimated in 1990 and a Qualified Person (QP), as defined by NI43-101, has not done sufficient work to classify this historical estimate as current mineral resources. Alto is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources, as defined by NI43-101, and thus the historical estimate should not be relied upon.
