As part of the transaction, APD changed its name to American Cordillera Mining Corporation ("AMCOR") and its new trading symbol has been changed to: (OTCBB: AUAG). The Asset Purchase Agreement within the option related to the acquisition of: 1) all right, title and interest in four existing mineral leases consisting of 154 unpatented claims and three patented claims; 2) all right, title and interest in four groups of claims totaling 83 unpatented mining claims; and 3) the transfer of all right, title and interest to an Option to Purchase certain mineral leases granted by the State of Washington covering 4,664 acres of land.
AMCOR intends to focus exploration for gold, silver and base metal deposits and mineral targets in; 1) the Coeur d'Alene Mining District of northern Idaho; 2) in the Quartz Creek Mining District of western Montana; 3) in the Seven Devils Mining District of eastern Oregon; 4) in the Kootenai ARC district in Idaho; 5) the Judith-Moccasin Mining District in central Montana; and 6) the Torodo Creek, Bodie and Republic Mining Districts in northern Washington.
Frank H. Blair, CPG, AMCOR's newly appointed President and CEO, stated, "AMCOR's strategy is to explore for gold, silver and base metal deposits primarily in the Coeur d'Alene Mining District, a world class mining district, and other historically significant mining districts by conducting its own exploration and then seek other companies who will potentially earn working interest in AMCOR's properties and leases by contributing cash and participating as a joint venture partner." Blair also stated that, "Revival of operations in some older districts can be easily justified on the basis of increases in prices of metals in the last decade."
