Renaissance Gold receives US$300,000 payment from AngloGold Ashanti to maintain option for 100% earn-in on Silicon project

Renaissance Gold Inc. TSX.V:REN (“RenGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that AngloGold  Ashanti NA (“AngloGold”) has elected to maintain its 100% earn-in option on the Silicon project for the  third year and has made the second anniversary payment of US$300,000 to the Company. AngloGold reported in their 2H 2018 report that they commenced their planned 17,000m, Phase 2 drill program in late 2018 with one RC and one core rig. On a recent visit to the project, RenGold personnel observed that they  have conducted drilling over a strike length of more than 3 kilometers along the Silicon-Thompson  structural corridor. AngloGold has also reported multiple induced polarization (IP) geophysical surveys over the project, being used along with surface mapping to delineate additional targets within the Silicon  claim block. The area of current drilling focus is one of several target areas recognized by RenGold during its early target generation efforts in this area. 

Robert Felder, President and CEO states, “We are very pleased to receive the notification and payment  from AngloGold indicating that they plan to continue into the third and final year of the agreement. Based  on the observed amount of drilling they have completed, and the recent comments by AngloGold’s CEO,  we think it is safe to say they are significantly encouraged by the results generated to date.” 

AngloGold entered into an agreement with RenGold in 2017, whereby it has the option to acquire a 100%  interest in the project by paying RenGold US$3,000,000 by June 21, 2020 of which AngloGold has now  paid US$600,000. If AngloGold completes the payments and exercises the purchase option, RenGold  would retain a 1% net smelter return royalty on future production from the project. (see NRs dated June 30,  2017, May 1, 2018 and March 27, 2019). 

Silicon is located in the Bare Mountain mining district, Nye County, Nevada. The Silicon property is  comprised of 277 unpatented mining claims owned by RenGold and an additional 271 unpatented mining  claims located by AngloGold within the agreement’s project area of interest, totaling 548 claims and  approximately 10,960 acres (4,436 hectares).
