About Yellowjacket Resources
Yellowjacket Resources was created in December 2011 by way of plan of arrangement and spun-off from Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:EPL) on a one for three share basis to the shareholders of Eagle Plains. Yellowjacket will focus on the development of the Yellowjacket Gold Project. The Yellowjacket Project is located 9 km east of Atlin, BC and is accessed by all-season road. Hydro-electric power is located within 5km of property boundaries. The project received a B.C. Mines Act permit in July, 2009 for an open pit gold mine and onsite 400 tpd mill and concentrator, processing up to 75,000 tons per year. The permit contemplates a 7–9 year mine life from a series of open pits entirely within an area of disturbed placer workings. Gold may be recovered using a simple gravity concentrating recovery plant without the use of chemicals or additives. Yellowjacket owns both mineral (hard-rock) and placer rights within the Project area. The project is located within the traditional territory of the Taku River Tlingit First Nation who have entered into a formal Impact and Benefits Agreement with respect to the project.
As part of the spinout transaction Eagle Plains holds 15% of the total common shares of Yellowjacket. Concurrently, Eagle Plains transferred to Yellowjacket its entire interest in the Yellowjacket Project, an additional $600,000 cash and certain investments to provide working capital and exploration funding.
