Ximen Mining Corp (CVE:XIM) (OTCMKTS:XXMMF) updated on its previously announced plan to buy an option to acquire the Kenville gold mine, which is a formerly producing project in British Columbia.

"Ximen Mining is not only excited about the Kenville Gold Mine acquisition, we are also extremely pleased with the additional new shareholders whom accompany the project, and have decided to join forces with us and share their optimistic enthusiasm and support," said Chris Anderson,  CEO at Ximen.

The target shares are valued at $659,558 ($0.0357 per target share) and Ximen proposes to issue 942,226  of its shares at a deemed price of $0.70 each as consideration.

First underground lode gold mine 

The Kenville gold mine near Nelson, British Columbia was first discovered in 1888 and mined intermittently until 1954, during which it produced over 2,000 kilograms of gold and 861 kilograms of silver.

It was the first underground lode gold mine in British Columbia, and was once the largest producer in the Nelson mining camp, the firm said.

Looking ahead, Ximen plans to  compile the details of historic work at Kenville in a bid to define targets for possible trial mining.

Shares nudged up 1% in Toronto at $0.50 each.
