VANCOUVER, Feb. 1, 2018 /CNW/ – ATAC Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ATC) announces that it has granted incentive stock options to directors, officers, employees and consultants, entitling those parties to purchase up to a total of 3,165,000 common shares at a price of $0.55 for a period of five years. All options will vest on a quarterly basis commencing three months from the date of granting.
ATAC is a Yukon-based exploration company focused on developing Canada’s only Carlin-type gold district at the Rackla Gold Property. Recent work on the ~1,700 km2 property has resulted in a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Tiger Gold Deposit, drilling of multiple high-grade Carlin-type gold zones and the identification of numerous early-stage gold exploration targets. Barrick Gold Corp. has an option to earn up to 70% of the central portion of the Rackla Gold Property (Orion Project) by spending $55 million in exploration. ATAC is well-financed with approximately $13 million in its treasury and has recently completed a budgeted $10 million exploration program at the Osiris and Rau Projects (which are not subject to Barrick’s earn-in right), while concurrently working with Barrick to advance the Orion Project.
