BELLINGHAM, WASHINGTON--(Marketwire - Aug. 23, 2011) - Pengram Corporation (OTCQB:PNGM)(PINK SHEETS:PNGM), today announced that it has paid the annual option and filing fees due this month under its agreements to acquire its CPG and Fish properties. Subject to financing, Pengram plans to commence exploration work on the two properties in the fourth quarter of this year.

The combined option and filing fees on the two properties' claims, including U.S. Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and local County filing fees, totaled approximately $25,000. With these payments, the option agreements and the claims are in good standing for the next twelve months.

CPG Project

The CPG Project is situated within the Walker Lane Mineral Belt, Mineral County, Nevada. The project consists of 44 unpatented lode mining claims on 1.3 square miles. The Walker Lane Mineral Belt of western Nevada is highly mineralized, containing several world-class epithermal precious metals deposits such as the Comstock Lode (estimated production of 8.6 million ounces of gold and 192 million ounces of silver), and Round Mountain (over 10 million ounces of gold produced since 1906). It also contains porphyry copper deposits, such as Yerington (1.75 billion pounds of copper produced from 1953-1978 by the Anaconda Copper Company).

The CPG Project is located in Eureka County, Nevada and is situated near several existing gold mines. Approximately 10 miles north of the CPG Project Kennecott's now closed Denton-Rawhide Mine produced 1.4 million ounces of gold and 10 million ounces of silver between 1990 and 2004.

The CPG Project hosts an early stage porphyry and skarn type copper-gold-molybdenum prospect where samples returned following:

  • Gold values ranging from less than 0.001 ounces per ton, to 0.036 ounces per ton
  • Silver values ranging from less than 0.0031 ounces per ton, to 0.75 ounces per ton

The Fish Project is a drill ready project with permitting for a Phase I drilling program well advanced with the Bureau of Land management. The Fish Project is a skarn-manto gold, silver and base metal prospect where rock chip samples have returned the following:
