VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 14, 2020 / International Montoro Resources Inc. (TSXV:IMT)(Frankfurt:O4T1), ("Montoro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of an additional 1,200 hectares of land on the western boundary of Marathon Gold's Valentine Lake Project Boundary (Figure 1). The Company's land holding is increased to 7,800 hectares along the Exploits Subzone and covers a large highly prospective structural zone along the contact of Cambrian-Ordovician siliciclastic sediments, metavolcanic, and granitoid rocks. The Company previously acquired two projects, Slip Gold and Victoria Lake (IMT Press Release September 23rd 2020), totaled 6,600 hectares and confirmed up to 44.5 g/t gold and 139.9 g/t silver in various grab samples hosted in quartz-tourmaline veins with additional evidence suggesting a potential orogenic epizonal-type deposit. Preliminary work on the newly acquired claims has outlined a 6.55-kilometer structural trend that has returned +1000-meter long gold soil anomaly sampling up to 1530 ppb gold. The new acquisition lies 6 kilometers west of Marathon Gold's Leprechaun Deposit, that reportedly contains a Measured and Indicated "M+I" 43-101 resource of 1,078,700 ounces of gold with an average gold grade of 1.985 g/t.
Mr. Karim Rayani, Chief Executive Officer commented, "Newfoundland is North America's hottest exploration region. There is a staking boom happening, new companies are sprouting up looking for bits and pieces of the pie. Montoro was fortunate to acquire this strategic land position tying on to the largest undeveloped gold resource in Atlantic Canada, Marathon Gold's 4 million-plus ounce deposit. This Property covers a key component in the area where our recent gold in soil anomalies outline a huge potential for a new discovery and sets the pace for further development as our team organizes the best approach going forward."
International Montoro Resources acquired the project for $10,000 cash and 350,000 common shares and 350,000 warrants exercisable at $0.12. The vendor will retain a 2% NSR with an agreed 1% buyback for $1million.

Victoria Lake Project
The Victoria Lake Gold-Silver project lies 18 kilometers west of Marathon Gold's Valentine Lake +4 million-ounce gold deposit and exhibits similar style gold-bearing veins and larger regional structures related to Cambrian to Ordovician, in age, altered mafic volcanics. Preliminary work on the project located serval quartz-arsenopyrite veins returning grab samples:
- 15.5 to 24.9 g/t gold
- 18.6 g/t to 139.9 g/t silver
The newly acquired claims lie further east along the eastern peninsula of Victoria Lake and tie directly onto the 100% owned Marathon Gold claims. The claim group lies 6 kilometers west of the Leprechaun open pit gold resource and 14 kilometers southwest of the Marathon Pit (Valentine Lake Deposit). Preliminary work by the vendor highlighted:
- Anomalous soil samples ranging from 600 ppb to 1530 ppb gold over a +1000-meter length
- 1,200 hectares covering 6.6 kilometers of strike length along a regional geological contact and structural zone
