VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC, CANADA–(Marketwire – Jan. 25, 2012) – Threegold Resources Inc ("Threegold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:THG) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (LOI) to sell its interest in the Dome Lemieux project to Capstock Financial (TSX VENTURE:CPK).
The terms of the deal are as follows, Threegold will receive 8,750,000 shares in CPK priced at 40 cents for a total of $3,500,000 in exchange for the claims comprising the Dome Lemieux.
