Vancouver, BC, Feb. 27 (Financial Press) – Inca One Resources Corp. (IO-TSX-V) has just launched a new gold standard for investors to earn prizes in real gold bullion, while raising awareness about mining investments in Peru. A striking 3.5 ounces of gold bullion will be awarded via the high reward and no-risk stock-picking contest at www.stockpools.com.
“The Inca One Pool is really a celebration of the many investment opportunities that exist in Peru at the moment,” said Edward Kelly, president and CEO of Inca One Resources. “ The mining sector of Peru accounts for nearly 64 percent of the country's export revenue. We are hoping this contest is a fun, interactive way to help raise awareness for Peruvian mining companies.”
Peru, which was home to the Inca Empire, is currently the largest gold producer in South America, hosting mines which produced up to 26 million ounces of gold. A highly mineral-rich country, Peru is the largest producer of silver and second largest producer of copper worldwide as of 2009.
"Mining is the economic engine for Peru,” Kelly explains. “You can see it in their numbers for GDP steadily increasing. The mining industry has really entrenched itself there for export, and there is no stopping it in the near future.”
The exclusive Peru-focused gold bullion giveaway contest through its partnership with Stockpools.com, has already attracted hundreds of players within a few days of its launch. The game has over $5,500 worth of prizes and is open to players around the world. Still need a selling point about the fantasy stock-picking game? Where else can you play for free for a chance to win $1,000 weekly?
Even though Stockpools.com awarded over $70,000CDN in prizes last year to players, this $5,500 handout will be the biggest single prize for a pool since it launched in September 2011.
To participate in the Inca One Pool, participants need to build their portfolio from a select group of producing, developing and exploring companies operating in Peru for a chance to win pure gold. The players with the top three performing portfolios at the end of the pool will be awarded physical gold bullion valued over $5,500.
For instance, Inca One (IO-TSX-V), Dynacor Gold Mines (DNG-TSX-V), Bear Creek Mining (BCM-TSX-V) and Tinka Resources (TK-TSX-V) are on the list. There are eight picks in total, including one wild card pick on any North American Stock Exchange of their choice.
Deadline for entries is midnight on March 14, 2013, and the winners will be announced via the Inca One website at www.incaone.com and www.stockpools.com at the close of business on September 13, 2013.
First place wins two ounces of gold. Second receives an impressive ounce of gold. Third place takes home a half ounce of gold. There is no risk, no cost, no credit card required to participate in the Inca One pool. Anyone can enter the Inca One Pool by visiting:http://www.stockpools.com/pools/inca-one/join
About Inca One:Inca One Resources Corp. (IO-TSXV) is a mining company focused on advancing its high-grade Las Huaquillas Gold Project in northern Peru. In parallel, the Company is working on a plan to consolidate small-scale mines and milling plants to create a positive cash flow company.
In 1998, Sulliden Resources estimated a geological resource on Las Huaquillas of 6.57 million tons grading 2.09 g/t Au and 25.2 g/t Ag (equivalent to 443,000 ounces of gold and 5.3 million ounces of silver)*. The historical estimate used a cut-off of 1.5 g/t gold and remains open at depth and along its 2.2 Km strike.
*Note: The historic resource was calculated in 1998 and the Company has not completed the work necessary to have the historical estimate verified by a Qualified Person. The Company is not treating the estimate as a current NI 43-101 defined resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon. The Project will require considerable future exploration, which the Company intends to carry out in due course.
