As detailed in the Company’s October 24, 2017 press release, Minera Alamos has an option to acquire all the issued shares of Vista Gold’s subsidiary Minera Gold Stake SA de CV, which owns the Guadalupe de Los Reyes project. The agreement calls for staged payments totalling US$6M. Production from any open pit (heap leach) mining operations at the Project will be subject to a minimum 1% net smelter return royalty (“NSR”) payable to Vista Gold which could increase to 2% if gold prices exceed US$ 1600 per oz. This royalty is capped at a maximum cumulative amount of US$2 million.
