VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 27, 2019 / Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX-V:REN / OTCQB:RNSGF) ("RenGold") is pleased to share public comments made by AngloGold Ashanti's ("Anglo") CEO, Kevin Dushnisky, during an interview at the recent BMO Global Metals and Mining Conference in Florida, USA. Dushnisky described RenGold's Silicon Project in Nevada as "a very interesting deposit" and "the base of Anglo's increasing presence in North America." Please click on the following link for the full video interview with Dushnisky.
Robert Felder, President and CEO states, "We are happy to hear these positive comments coming from the CEO of Anglo about their work to date on the Silicon Project, and are very pleased with the significant commitment of resources and the rapid advancement of this project by Anglo. All indications point to a significant success."
Anglo entered into an agreement with RenGold in 2017, whereby it has the option to acquire 100% interest in the project by paying RenGold US$3,000,000 by June 21, 2020 (See NRs dated June 30, 2017 and June 11, 2018). Anglo has already paid US$300,000 to RenGold, and the 2nd anniversary payment of US$300,000 is due in June. If Anglo completes the option, RenGold would retain a 1% net smelter return royalty on future production from the project.
RenGold personnel recently visited the project and noted two drill rigs operating (one core and one reverse circulation) and a drill pattern covering approximately 3 kilometers in length.
The Silicon Project is in Nye County, Nevada in the Bare Mountain District near the town of Beatty. Corvus Gold (KOR) is advancing the adjacent Mother Lode deposit and Coeur Mining (CDE) recently acquired the Sterling Mine property from Northern Empire Resources and is advancing that project as well. A map showing relative land positions in the district is shown in Figure 1.
