Vox Acquires Rancher Royalty On South Railroad Gold Development Project In Nevada
GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, June 7, 2021 /CNW/ - Vox Royalty Corp. (TSXV: VOX) ("Vox" or the "Company"), a high growth precious metals focused royalty company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into binding agreements with a group of private individuals pursuant to which Vox will acquire an effective aggregate 0.633% net smelter returns royalty and associated advance minimum royalty payments of over C$120,000 per annum (the "Royalty") on part of Gold Standard Ventures ("GSV") Railroad-Pinion Gold Project ("Railroad Pinion") located on the prolific Carlin Trend in Elko County, Nevada for total cash consideration of US$1,980,000 (collectively, the "Transaction").
Spencer Cole, Executive Vice President of North America stated: "Vox is excited to announce its first Nevada gold royalty acquisition over a Carlin Trend project that is rapidly advancing towards feasibility completion in 2021 and a subsequent construction decision. Vox acquired this royalty from a family associated with the Nevada ranch where the South Railroad project is located. The royalty covers approximately 35% of the resource base at South Railroad and most of GSV's ongoing expansion drilling at Dark Star, Pinion and Jasperoid Wash. We look forward to further value being unlocked for Vox shareholders as the South Railroad Project is rapidly progressed towards production."
South Railroad Asset Overview
GSV's flagship property is the Railroad-Pinion Project located along the Piñion Mountain Range approximately 15 miles (24km) south-southeast of Carlin, Nevada, in the Railroad Mining District. Railroad Pinion has two adjacent parts: North Railroad, which includes the POD, Sweet Hollow and North Bullion deposits and South Railroad, which includes the Dark Star, Pinion and Jasperoid Wash deposits.
Railroad-Pinion is an intermediate to advanced stage gold project with a favorable structural, geological and stratigraphic setting situated at the southeast end of the Carlin Trend of north-central Nevada, adjacent to and south of Nevada Gold Mines' Rain Mining District. The Carlin Trend is a northwest alignment of sedimentary rock-hosted gold deposits with past production exceeding 80,000,000 ounces of gold. Each dome or "window" is cored by igneous intrusions that uplift and expose Paleozoic rocks and certain stratigraphic contacts that are favourable for formation of Carlin-style gold deposits. Railroad-Pinion is centered on the fourth and southernmost dome-shaped window on the Carlin Trend.
