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 (TSX.V:KOR) is advancing the adjacent Mother Lode deposit and Coeur Mining (NYSE: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.
