Vista Gold Corp. Receives $2.5 Million Awak Mas Option Payment






Vista Gold Corp. (NYSE American:VGZ) (TSX: VGZ) announced receipt of $2.5 million from PT Masmindo Dwi Area to exercise its option to cancel the remaining 50% of the Awak Mas net smelter return royalty.


As announced on May 5, 2020 (see news release), PT Masmindo retained the right to pay Vista $2.5 million to exercise its option to cancel the remaining 50% of the Awak Mas NSR royalty, which included a 1.0% NSR royalty on the first 1,250,000 ounces of gold produced and 1.25% NSR royalty on the next 1,250,000 ounces of gold produced. With this $2.5 million payment, Vista has no remaining royalty interest in the Awak Mas project.


Frederick H. Earnest, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to have received the final option payment from PT Masmindo and successfully completed the monetization of another non-core asset. This $2.5 million strengthens our balance sheet as we advance our activities to seek a strategic partner for development of Mt Todd.”
