The 5 contiguous claims ("Mineral Claims") consist of a mining lease and a mining concession totalizing an approximate surface of 76.84 hectares. These 5 mining claims are contingent to DNA's mining claims covering an area of approximately 340 hectares on the Montauban Mine Property, and are described as Les Mines de Montauban in the Property Map on the DNA Website http://www.dnapreciousmetals.com/maps.
DNA Precious Metals Inc. has fulfilled its contractual obligations under the Agreement and paid "In Trust" for the benefit of the Vendor funds and common shares of DNA Precious Metals Inc. representing a value of over $600,000 as of the date of this Release.

This acquisition solidifies DNA Precious Metal's Montauban Mine Property bundle, while expanding exploration and mining potential and enhancing access.
