Zimtu Capital Corp. Announces Rare Earth Element Property Transaction With Electric Metals Inc.
|April 20, 2011 - Zimtu Capital Corp. (TSXv: ZC; FSE: ZCT1) (the "Company" or "Zimtu") is pleased to announce that the Company and three prospecting partners have signed an agreement with Electric Metals Inc. (TSXv: EMI) ("Electric") whereby Electric can earn a 100% interest in eight rare earth element ("REE") properties located in the Abitibi region of Quebec near Geomega's (TSXv: GMA) Montviel REE Property. The properties are referred to collectively as the "Abitibi Claims."|
For its participation in the transaction, Zimtu will receive staged cash and share payments from Electric as follows: (i) $2,500 on signing (received); (ii) $10,000 and 500,000 common shares on acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXv"); (iii) $18,750 and 500,000 on the first anniversary of TSXv acceptance; and (iv) $31,250 and 375,000 on the second anniversary. Zimtu's three prospecting partners will each receive cash and share considerations equal to that of Zimtu. The vendors will collectively retain a 2% Net Smelter Royalty on the properties; 1% of which can be purchased by Electric for $500,000.
The Abitibi Claims total 21,600 hectares (216 square kilometres) and cover most of the known syenite occurrences surrounding Geomega's Montviel syenite-carbonatite complex, which has recently produced results of 485 metres of 1.44% Total Rare Earth Oxides ("TREO") including 111 metres of 2.09% TREO (see Geomega news release of March 31, 2011).
Of the eight claim blocks that comprise the Abitibi Claims, at the Ailly complex, approximately 10 kilometres south of Montviel, historical drilling has intersected carbonatite similar to that which hosts REE mineralization at Montviel, but which was not assayed for REE.
The majority of the syenite-carbonatite complexes in the Abitibi region have been emplaced along two major structural corridors. The Abitibi claims cover most of the known syenite occurrences that have intruded these trends. Because syenite occurs with carbonatite at Montviel and Ailly, the remaining syenites covered by the Abitibi Claims may also be prospective for carbonatite emplacement and associated REE mineralization.

The claims were acquired by the Company and its partners by staking and were acquired for project generation. Zimtu will continue to evaluate and acquire prospective resource properties to make available for sale or joint venture. As part of the Company's business, Zimtu provides mineral property advisory services and helps to connect companies with mineral properties of interest.
