IDM Mining Files Project Description Report for Red Mountain Gold Project and Closes Final Tranche of Non-Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2015) -


IDM Mining Ltd. (TSX:IDM) ("IDM" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has submitted the Project Description report for Red Mountain Gold Project to the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Agency ("BCEAO") and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency ("CEAA") and has closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement previously announced (May 19, 2015 and June 16, 2015) (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of $671,078.

Project Permitting

IDM has submitted a Project Description report (the "Project Description") for the Red Mountain Gold Project (the "Project") to the BCEAO and CEAA. The Project Description was reviewed in advance by First Nations governments and officially commences the environment assessment ("EA") process for a proposed 1,000 tonne per day underground gold mine at the Project, located 15 km northeast of Stewart BC. The issuance of a Section 10 Order under the Environment Assessment Act (BC) ("EAA"), which is expected in the coming weeks, will formally launch the Project into the British Columbia environmental review process.

The Company's environmental baseline crews are progressing with the final year's field work, including: surface and groundwater hydrology, archeological assessments, geohazard, fisheries and wildlife studies. Additionally, First Nation and community engagement as well as project engineering studies are well underway in conjunction with the EA process. Also, the Company anticipates updating the Project's NI 43-101 resource estimate in the near term to include additional mineralized zones.

"We are very pleased to be advancing the Red Mountain Project in the next step of the EA approval process," said Robert McLeod, CEO of IDM Mining. "The Project Description Report provides a concise overview of our proposed plans for the development of the project and allows us to meaningfully engage with government, the Nisga'a Nation and other communities in the region. Our vision for a proposed, high-grade gold mine with potential low operating costs and capex within a daily commute of my hometown of Stewart, would have a significant, positive impact on northwestern British Columbia."

Private Placement

The closing of the final tranche of the Offering consisted of 2,500,000 common share units ("Common Share Units") at a price of $0.10 per Common Share Unit and 3,007,700 flow through share units ("Flow-Through Units") issued at a price of $0.14 per Flow-Through Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $671,078.

Each Common Share Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant, with each such whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.15 for a period of twenty-four (24) months. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one non flow-through Common Share at a price of $0.18 for a period of twenty-four (24) months.

No finders' fees were paid in connection with the final tranche of the Offering

Net proceeds from the Offering will be used for continued permitting, engineering and development activities on its Red Mountain Property, located near Stewart BC and for working capital purposes.


IDM Mining is currently earning an option to acquire a 100% interest in the 17,125 hectare Red Mountain property, located 15 kilometers northeast of Stewart, BC. Numerous gold and silver deposits and exploration prospects have been identified by IDM and previous operators over a 15 km by 4 km trend of strong alteration and mineralized prospects. Since discovery in 1989, in excess of $40 million has been spent on the Project including a production sized underground ramp.
