WINNIPEG, MB / ACCESSWIRE / February 11, 2021 / Winston Gold Corp. (CSE:WGC) (OTCQB:WGMCF) (the "Company" or "Winston") is pleased to announce that the Company and Bond Resources Inc. ("Bond") (CSE: BJB) have jointly entered into a Lease Agreement, with option to purchase ("the Agreement") with Montana Reclaim LLC (Lessor) over nine mining claims covering approximately 166 acres in Montana, USA, more commonly known as the Hard Cash property (the "Property"). Bond and Winston will be equal partners in the project.
Joseph Carrabba, Director of both Winston and Bond stated "The Hard Cash property in Montana offers both our shareholders tremendous value in combining the knowledge and similar interests of Winston with Bond's mission in rediscovering past producers for near term cashflow. The Hard Cash property is located approximately 3km from Winston's Paradine mill. The mill is currently processing ore from Winston's gold producing property".
About the Hard Cash Property:
The Hard Cash property consists of 9 patented claims west of the small town of Radersburg, Montana. The Hard Cash vein was mined pre-WWII on a small scale, only producing 1,007 tons of ore. 1,032 ounces of gold were recovered from the material. Samples taken from accessible workings showed mineable grades in and around the production stopes. The type of vein system is like the Winston property with the gold hosted in massive sulfides. Other geologic structures on the property have also been identified as potential exploration targets, with samples returning mineable grades from the surface.
Details of the Agreement:
The Agreement shall remain in effect for an initial term of five (5) years commencing on the date on which the Agreement is signed and shall be renewable for three (3) additional five (5) year terms.
Consideration payable to the Lessor under the Agreement is:
- an initial cash payment of US$2,000;
- shared monthly payments with Bond of US$1,500;
- annual payments by each of Bond and Winston of US$25,000, payable in shares of Bond and Winston respectively; and
- US$25,000 upon the expiry of each five year term.
In addition to the lease payments noted above, by the end of each calendar year commencing in 2021, Bond and Winston must make minimum annual expenditures on the Property of US$75,000 (the "Annual Expenditure").
Option to Purchase
The Agreement includes the exclusive option to purchase the Property at any time for $1,500,000, plus a 3.0% net smelter returns royalty (the "Royalty"), (which increases to a $4.0% NSR Royalty should the price of gold exceed $2,000 per ounce), in and to all of the minerals produced from the Property.
