Total Trapper District Land Position Increased to 25,650 Hectares
October 26, 2011 - Vancouver, B.C. Ocean Park Ventures Corp. ("Ocean Park" or the "Company") (TSX-V: OCP) is pleased to announce that it has signed an Option Agreement with Gulfside Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: GMG) and a private vendor to acquire a 100% interest in the 3347 hectare Golden Fleece and Argonaut properties, which are contiguous with the Trapper property to the southwest and northeast. The addition of these properties increases Ocean Park's total Trapper district land position to over 25,650 hectares, forming a continuous claim package that extends more than 30 kilometres from north to south.
Historic exploration work on the Golden Fleece claims identified extensive gossans that are associated with iron-carbonate alteration similar to that observed at Trapper, making the property prospective for hosting an extension to the Trapper gold-rich polymetallic mineralization system.
Under the terms of the Agreement, a 100% interest in the Golden Fleece and Argonaut properties may be obtained by making a payment of $25,000 and issuing 300,000 shares of the Company over two years. The properties are subject to a 1% NSR, which can be purchased from the Vendors for $500,000.
Maps of the Trapper district properties are available on Ocean Park's web site at www.oceanparkventures.com.
