The company announced on Tuesday that it acquired a 100% interest in the Standard Gold property in Quebec in exchange for 160,000 Globex shares, which rose 5.3% in early trading to reach C$0.40 in Toronto.
Standard Gold is a highly prospective gold property located in Duvernay Township, Quebec. Historical exploration revealed intersections including 22.3 grams per ton (g/t) gold over 2 metres, 7.9 g/t gold over 1.5 metres and 90.3 g/t over 1.5 metres.
Drilling on the project in 1983 revealed gold mineralization at a depth of 610 metres and a number of historical resource calculations were completed throughout the interim years, particularly near a 389-metres deep shaft where small bulk samples have been mined.
Globex said that former operators drilled more than 2,430 metres over eight levels on the property.
Much of the gold mineralization in the area is underexplored, Globex said in a release.
Globex, based in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec is a mineral property bank with 80 gold projects, 57 base metals properties and more than 29 specialty minerals projects making a total of 168 assets.
The group recently raised C$1.2 million to fund exploration at its eastern Canadian assets.
