Renaissance Announces New Purchase Agreement with First Liberty Power Corp. for the Arabia Polymetallic Project, Pershing County, Nevada
|Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX: REN) ("RenGold") is pleased to announce a new purchase agreement with First Liberty Power Corp., ("FLPC") on the Arabia Project in Pershing County Nevada. |
The Arabia Project is a consolidation of the polymetallic Arabia District just north of Lovelock Nevada. It is a series of mesothermal quartz veins that may be intrusion related or orogenic in origin. It is composed of 15 patents and BLM mining claims. Historic mining records indicate very high grades of lead, silver, antimony and gold. Sampling by RenGold has yielded up to 30.1% Pb, 1811.5 ppm Ag, >1.5% Sb and 18.9 ppm Au. FLPC is interested in near term mining for antimony and are planning a processing mill 4 miles to the east to make antimony concentrates and to recover the other metals.
The Arabia District was organized in 1863 with production feeding the first Ag-Pb smelter in the United States from which Pb was shipped in commercial quantities. A 1913 report from the Electric vein down to 150 foot depth reports assays averaging Au 0.15 opt, Ag 18.7 oz., and Pb 14.2%.
The purchase includes a series of minimum payments of $100k per year and a 10% NSR. Once FLPC has paid RenGold one million dollars the NSR is reduced from 10% to 7% with a buy down provision to 4%. Half of the one million dollar payment is an advance royalty. In addition, there is a minimum $50k work commitment during each of the first two years to be carried out by RenGold staff.
Richard Bedell President and CEO of RenGold comments: "This agreement is a little different than our typical earn-in to joint venture. Because FLPC wants to go into production soon and bypass a standard bankable feasibility study, we have made a sale conditional to payments and a NSR. We like the diversification of having a potential small scale mining operation in our portfolio, because if successful it can provide income in the near term. With the low burn rate and tight share structure of RenGold this could be very meaningful. The project has significant upside potential to be much larger than is currently obvious."
All data disclosed in this press release, including sampling, analytical and test data, have been reviewed by the Company's qualified person Mr. Eric M. Struhsacker, M.Sc., and Certified Professional Geologist as recognized by the American Institute of Professional Geologists.
