Vancouver, British Columbia, August 18, 2016 – Vanity Capital Inc. (TSX Venture: VYC) (“Vanity“) announces it has entered into an option agreement with IAMGOLD Corporation (“IAMGOLD”) providing for an option to acquire a 100% interest in IAMGOLD’s Porcupine Property in the Duparquet Township area of Quebec (the “Option”).

The Option is exercisable by Vanity spending a minimum of one-million five hundred thousand ($1,500,000) on exploration expenditures, which is to include the completion of a minimum 5,000 metres of diamond drilling on the property, within twenty-four (24) months of the Option. The Option is also subject to Vanity entering into an agreement to acquire an interest in an adjacent property.  Upon Vanity vesting its interest, IAMGOLD would retain a 2% net smelter royalty.

The Option also provides Vanity with the right to renegotiate a pre-existing net smelter royalty of 3% held by certain third parties.

The Option is subject to Vanity obtaining the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

IAMGOLD is an arms-length party to Vanity.

Vanity has agreed to pay a cash finder’s fee to Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutcheon Limited in connection with the Option. $5,000 is to be paid on approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and an additional $10,000 on Vanity completing its required exploration expenditures under the Option.

The Porcupine Property consists of ten (10) contiguous patented claims covering approximately 153 hectares located in the Duparquet Township area of Quebec.

Vanity plans to immediately undertake an initial exploratory drill campaign, on receipt of TSX Venture Exchange approval of the Option.


Vanity is a Vancouver junior exploration company. It is Vanity’s intent to advance the Porcupine Property as quickly as possible.  Vanity is reviewing other potential property acquisitions and opportunities with a specific focus on mineral properties in Quebec.


IAMGOLD is a mid-tier mining company with four operating gold mines on three continents. A solid base of strategic assets in North and South America and West Africa is complemented by development and exploration projects and continued assessment of accretive acquisition opportunities.  IAMGOLD is in a strong financial position with extensive management and operational expertise.

    Will Vanity have to raise funding soon?

    Are there any known resources on the Porcupine property?

    I realize it is a promising location for discoveries, but how close are neighboring mines in either direction along the trend?

        Well, nevertheless the price increase is justified because the market knows no one works harder, knows more or is smarter than Mr. Big Al Korelin.

        To put it succinctly, the prettiest baby in the nursery! 🙂

        Hope all is well with you, Mr. LPG.

        Mr. LPG, I am sorry for the misinformation. It appears I was bringing up a cached page and that explains the discrepancy.

        However, I am more than certain that the price increase was in anticipation of the news regarding Mr. Big Al Korelin. No doubt about it.

          No worries about “misinformation”. You didn’t mean it: it’s all good.
          I’m well over here, so I hope the same for you.
          Best to you,

      Yes, but will the self-driving taxis yell at other drivers over loud annoying music, take personal phone calls while you sitting in the back seat, and still screw your wallet by taking the long route?

      Those are things I’ll miss…..

    Strange, but true……’
    A local judge for a village near Nice, France has banned the wearing of bikinis by women. (Claiming that it would be justification to provoke islamic terrorist attacks)

    I wonder what Ms. Bardot thinks ; yesterday being the 81st anniversary of her
    Just a few decades ago, I remember when wearing anything at all was optional on a beach; how things change.

    Ms. Bardot is furious. She is a French patriot and hates Islam.
