Tectonic Resources NL (ASX:TTR) announced the signing of a binding Heads of Agreement relating to the acquisition of Mt Iron tenement package and processing facility. The tenement package has significant gold workings, yet remains largely unexplored. With a partially developed open pit and a CIP milling circuit, the potential to establish near term gold production is significant. The acquisition further consolidates the company's tenement holding in a highly prospective corridor hosting already defined gold potential and provides the company an opportunity to accelerate its plans of becoming a gold producer.
