Beacon Minerals (BCN) has secured an option agreement to acquire two mining licences that make up the Min Min Light Project in WA.

The project which is located in the Dunnsville mining centre and just 13.5 kilometres from Beacon’s Lost Dog gold mine in Western Australia.

Under the option agreement, Beacon will pay $10,000 for a six-month option to conduct exploration. If it chooses to extend this for another six months, it will pay a further $40,000.

After 12 months, the company may purchase the tenements for a total of $400,000 and will also be required to pay a 2 per cent net smelter royalty for any minerals mined.

One of the Min Min Light tenements contains historic underground workings through which historical records have shown 38 tonnes at 424g/t gold for 524,000 ounces of gold with another 647 ounces of gold from ore between 1937 and 1939.

Despite these bonanza grades, there aren’t any signs of the Min Min Light workings being drill tested.

Instead, Beacon plans to conduct a small reverse circulation drilling program to target the area below the historical workings.

Beacon is trading flat at 4.2 cents at 12:09 pm AEDT.
