Phase 1 of Omagine project gets shareholders’ nod $OMAG.us

The following news pieces were published in the Muscat Daily and the Oman Observer:

Phase 1 of Omagine project gets shareholders’ nod
Phase 1 of Omagine project gets shareholders’ nod

  • Agreed to move ahead with Phase 1 of the eagerly anticipated development with an investment of around $220 million
  • Phase 1 strategy was firmed up during a series of shareholder meetings held over the course of the past two months.
  • Phase 1 envisages the construction of one hotel, 250 residences and the first of seven so-called ‘Pearl’ structures – 20-metre-diameter buildings located along an open boardwalk that will provide an iconic appeal to the overall Omagine project

By Conrad Prabhu — MUSCAT: August 23: The shareholders of Omagine LLC, which is developing a mixed-use tourism and residential real estate scheme just off Muscat International Airport on the Sea of Oman coast, have agreed to move ahead with Phase 1 of the eagerly anticipated development with an investment of around $220 million. The developer’s US-based holding company, Omagine Inc, said in a quarterly filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that the Phase 1 strategy was firmed up during a series of shareholder meetings held over the course of the past two months.

Phase 1 envisages the construction of one hotel, 250 residences and the first of seven so-called ‘Pearl’ structures – 20-metre-diameter buildings located along an open boardwalk that will provide an iconic appeal to the overall Omagine project. At the same time, the shareholders agreed to appoint a local Omani bank as the company’s financial adviser and lender. The bank in question, which has not been identified, has agreed in principle to be the developer’s financial adviser and to provide the debt financing required for Omagine to design, develop and construct Phase One valued at approximately $220 million.

Additionally, Omagine agreed to take steps to formalise an agreement with Lebanon-based multinational construction firm Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) as the general contractor for the Omagine project. CCC-Oman and CCC-Panama, wholly owned subsidiaries of Consolidated Contractors International Company (CCIC), have a combined 15 per cent stake in the Omagine project.

The revelations mark an important effort to get construction work started in earnest on the ambitious development. The lavish scheme is due to come up a roughly 1 million sq metre beachfront location, whose area will been augmented by a further 100,000 sq metres thanks to the addition of reclaimed land.

Conceived as an elegant integration of cultural, scientific, heritage, entertainment and residential components, the Omagine project will be distinguished by the presence of seven pearl shaped buildings located along the waterfront. These ‘Pearls’ will serve as backdrops for entertainment and exhibitions.
Other notable features of the ambitious development include an amphitheatre and stage, enclosed harbour and marina, boat slips and docking facilities, canal, three hotels of 5-, 4- and 4-star rating, shopping and retail establishments, and commercial office buildings.

More than 2,000 residences will be constructed and offered for sale in the context of the project’s designation as an Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC).

Initial phases of the Omagine project are planned to be completed by late 2021, according to the filing. New York headquartered Omagine Inc has a 60-per cent shareholding in Omagine LLC, which is also owned by Royal Court Affairs of Oman (25 per cent), and two subsidiaries of Consolidated Contractors International Company SAL (15 per cent).

OMANI BANK LIKELY TO BE FINANCIAL ADVISOR, LENDER FOR PHASE ONE OF OMAGINE PROJECT

An artist’s rendering of the Omagine project (Source: omagine.com)

By Gulam Ali Khan
August 23, 2016
Muscat -

Omagine LLC, which plans to develop a US$2.5bn beachfront tourism and real-estate project in Muscat, is likely to hire an Omani bank as its financial advisor, that would also provide debt financing for phase one of the project.

“During the period between July 19 to August 18 Omagine LLC shareholders met several times both separately and together with the senior management of the Omani bank and as of the date hereof, the Omani bank has agreed in principle to be Omagine LLC’s financial advisor and to provide the debt financing required for the Omagine project to design, develop and construct phase one valued at approximately US$220mn,” US-based Omagine Inc – the majority shareholder in Omagine LLC – said in its quarterly report filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday.

The company, however, did not disclose the name of the bank.

Omagine Inc said Omagine LLC’s shareholders held two meetings on July 19 and August 18 and reviewed and discussed the present status of the project to take it forward. The meetings recommended that the company hire a local Omani bank as its financial advisor and lender.

The foregoing arrangement with the Omani bank is subject to its final due diligence and the execution of an agreement with Omagine LLC, the company said. But the Omani bank, Omagine Inc said, has indicated to the shareholders that, barring any unknown impediment (of which neither management nor the Omani bank are aware), it will deliver a robust term sheet specifying the debt financing and advisory services to Omagine LLC on or before September 4, 2016.

Plans for phase one of the Omagine project – which is presently budgeted at approximately US$220mn – comprise the design and development of one hotel, 250 residences, and one pearl building and associated enabling works and infrastructure within the site, Omagine Inc said.

It said debt financing for phase one is expected to be supplied by the Omani bank and not be syndicated. The Omani bank may, depending upon future circumstances, be Omagine LLC’s financial advisor for follow-on phases or for the entire project, the company said. “As such the financial advisor will arrange the syndicated bank financing for the numbered sections to be constructed subsequent to phase one.”

Omagine Inc further said that it is presently expected that a definitive agreement between Omagine LLC and the Omani bank with respect to phase one will be executed with the next three weeks, but added, “No assurance, however, can be given that any such agreement will be signed until it is actually signed by the parties.”

Notwithstanding the foregoing likely solution, Omagine Inc added the management of Omagine LLC is continuing discussions with other interested investors and contractors in China, Europe and the US.

CLIENT FEATURE: Treaty Creek Included In Seabridge Gold Plan To Take KSM Into Production $AMK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:28 PM on Friday, August 19th, 2016

AMK: TSX-V, OTCBB: ACKRF

WHY AMERICAN CREEK RESOURCES?

  • American Creek has exceptional precious metal properties throughout British Columbia including two of the most prospective projects found in B.C.’s Golden Triangle; the Electrum and Treaty Creek properties.
  • The Electrum property is geologically similar to the nearby Brucejack (going into production in 2017) and the nearby Premier Mine (past producer).
  • So far over 130 million ounces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 20 billion pounds of copper (all categories included), representing one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet, have been delineated within the geological system shared by KSM, Brucejack, and Treaty Creek.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • A JV agreement with Tudor Gold was just signed to develop the Electrum and Treaty Creek projects.The people behind Tudor Gold were also behind Osisko Gold, one of Canada’s biggest mining successes.They have the resources, expertise, and experience of taking projects into production.
  • Specimens from the Electrum property average 27,092 gm/tonne silver and 248 gm/tonne gold. Read More
  • Tudor has now completed the previously announced Magnetotelluric survey and has commenced drilling Read More

EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTIES

The Electrum is located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle; one of the richest areas of mineralization in the world with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.

The property has a rich history with some of the highest grade hand-mined ore mined in North America (1,661 g/t Au with 2,596 Ag)combined with excellent logistics. The property is located directly between two high-grade veining gold/silver mines; the past producing Silbak Premier mine and Pretiums high-grade Brucejack mine (production in 2017). All three lie within the Iskut mineral district (a particularly prolific part of the Canadian Cordillera) with numerous geological similarities between them.

On May 11th 2016 American Creek formed a joint venture agreement with Tudor Gold wherein American Creek retains 40% of the property.Tudor Gold will be the operator while both companies will work together to develop the property.This partnership is very beneficial for American Creek as its flagship project will be able to advance at a much greater pace due to the geological expertise, experience, resources, management, and exposure that Tudor Gold brings to the table.

The Electrum Property holds significant potential which led to a JV agreement with Tudor Goldwhen considering its high-grade nature combined with the exceptional logistics in place.

  • Located in the prolific Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia, an area encompassing mineral rich belts that host more than 43 past producing mines including Eskay Creek, Silbak Premier, Granduc and Big Missouri. It is a hotbed of activity with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.
  • Located in a particularly rich valley with 4 past producing commercial mines and a 5th in the adjacent valley.
  • Includes the historic East Gold Mine that had intermittent small-scale production of approximately 46 tonnes of ore with grades averaging 1,661 grams of gold per tonne and 2,596 grams of silver per tonne (roughly 50oz gold with 75oz silver).
  • Mineralization is believed to be very similar to the silver-gold-base metal veins responsible for the precious metal mineralization found in the Silbak Premier Mine and the Big Missouri mines (located in same extended valley).
  • Pretiums Brucejack Summary Report (for exploration) compares itself geologically to the Silbak Premier mine.
  • Electrums Summary Report (for exploration) compares itself geologically to the Silbak Premier mine.
  • High-grade mineralization at surface has been confirmed extending over a 500 x 500m area. Specimens across that area include numerous bonanza grade results including 1,926 g/t gold with 37,995 g/t silver, 80.96 g/t gold with 80,818 g/t silver, 694 g/t gold with 550 g/t silver, 54.77 g/t gold with 14,903 g/t silver, 615 g/t gold with 616 g/t silver, 395 g/t gold with 46,601 g/t silver, and many more.
  • Drilling showed a continuation of high grade intervals at depth including grades up to 440 g/t gold with 400 g/t silver over 0.52m. Other high grade gold intervals include 38.4 g/t over 0.45m, 31.4 g/t over 2m, 29.9 g/t over 2m,16.9 g/t over 1.5m, 16.7 g/t over 1.3m, and 12.3 g/t over 1.9m along with longer intervals of 3 g/t over 26m, 1 g/t over 50m, and 0.5 g/t over 31m. High grade silver intervals at depth including 583g/t over 0.3m, 420 g/t over 0.9m, 384 g/t over 0.7m and 374 g/t over 0.65m were also discovered.
  • A very successful small program was run in the fall of 2015 wherein:
    o A new approach focusing on high-grade was employed
    o New zones of gold / silver mineralization were discovered with drill intersections grading from one up to 14 grams of gold per tonne.
    o A better understanding of the high-grade veining system was obtained
    o Numerous outcrops were tested on surface. 24 specimens were taken from the Shiny Cliff and averaged 248 g/t gold with 27,092 g/t silver, the highest sample being 1,926 g/t gold with 37,955 g/t silver. Specimens taken from a boulder 20m down slope from the Shiny Cliff averaged 10 g/t gold with 857 g/t silver.
    o Eleven specimens were collected along a quartz vein at the Rico showing. The specimens from the structure averaged 54 g/t gold with 11,512 g/t silver, the highest sample being 270 g/t gold with 44,048 g/t silver. Thirteen specimens were collected from a vein on Mine Hill and averaged 6 g/t gold with 522 g/t silver.
    o The program proved the Electrum Property has multiple high-grade gold-silver epithermal breccia vein systems and gave us a better understating of their sequencing.
  • Excellent logistics including road access, power located 2 km away and bulk tonnage shipping ports and supportive mining town located just40 km away in a mining friendly jurisdiction.

Treaty Creek Property

Treaty Creek is located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle; one of the richest areas of mineralization in the world with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.

On May 11th 2016 American Creek formed a joint venture agreement with Tudor Gold wherein American Creek retains a carried interest of 20% of the property until a production notice is given. A partner with the expertise, backing, management team, and experience to develop this potential world scale project was sought after by AMK. Tudor Gold meets and exceeds all of those requirements needed to fully realize the potential of Treaty Creek. American Creek will not have to raise money or dilute as development takes place.

Mineralization in the Treaty Creek claims area lies within the same broad hydrothermal system that generated the several deposits on the Seabridge Gold KSM and the Pretivm Brucejack properties that lie immediately southwest of the Treaty Creek claims. So far over 130 million ounces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 20 billion pounds of copper (all categories included), representing one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet, have been delineated within the geological system shared by KSM, Brucejack, and Treaty Creek.

Seabridge Gold’s KSM is the world’s largest undeveloped gold/silver project by reserves while Pretium’s Brucejack is the highest grading undeveloped large-scale gold project in the world. KSM has just past the environmental and permitting stage while the Brucejack is in construction phase. Treaty Creek is part of the same large hydrothermal system as it’s neighbours, hosts the same bedrock geology as its neighbours, the same magneto-telluric (MT) anomalies that proved to be large deposits on both Seabridge and Pretivm’s claims, the same major fault system (Sulphurets) that is responsible for KSM’s deposits, and initial exploration and drilling show similar results to initial drilling on KSM.

A recent Government geological report shows Treaty to be “in the right neighbourhood for B.C’s next big deposit”.Treaty meets all three main criteria of the report which states “that is a big game changer for explorers in the region, because it will get them closer to making a discovery”.

The geological markers on Treaty Creek are saying there are great similarities to the KSM / Brucejack / Valley of the Kings and other deposits found within the same hydrothermal system.Now the right partnership is in place to advance the project and realize its potential.

Gold Hill Property

The Gold Hill property is located in Southern British Columbia near Cranbrook.Logistics are exceptional with forestry roads throughout the property and power nearby. Gold on the Wild Horse River was discovered in the fall of 1863 by American prospectors and one of the West’s greatest gold rushes ensued. The Wild Horse River yielded close to $7,000,000 dollars (48 tonnes of gold or around $2 Billion in today’s dollars). It is believed that a far greater amount was mined and never accounted for.

The river is considered to be one of the greatest gold creeks in the entire province of British Columbia. The majority of the gold taken from the river was located along a 6km stretch between Boulder Creek (upstream) and Brewery Creek (downstream). While most of the gold has been taken from the placer deposits downstream from Gold Hill, there are still placer operations in the area ranging from small scale panning / sluicing to full scale mining operations.

Historic efforts were made to trace the source / sources of the placer gold. This led explorers (including geologists from Cominco) up the Boulder Creek to what is now called the Gold Hill property. This property constitutes a significant portion of the watershed for Boulder Creek including two main areas where gold was recovered by Cominco (along with others). These areas are known as Big Chief and Gold Hill. Both areas are believed to be major contributing sources for the incredible resources found in the Wild Horse River and as such have tremendous potential. While gold was discovered on the property, the gold price in 1900 did not support extensive hard rock exploration at the time.

The property has been overlook and sat dormant for many years. American Creek was very fortunate to acquire a property with such a rich history and such huge potential. The property was acquired in 2015 and hard rock exploration will begin in 2016.
