Breaking News: Falcon Renegotiates its Agreement for Esperanza Gold/Silver/Copper Project in La Rioja, Argentina

FALCON GOLD CORP. (OTC:FGLDF) (TSX-V: FG) (GR:3FA); (“Falcon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed a renegotiated agreement for the right to acquire up to a 100% interest in the ERSA mineral concessions located in La Rioja Province, Argentina. The concessions are held by Esperanza Resources S.A. and Mr. Rojnica Ivo (the “Vendors”). The Agreement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

The Property

The ERSA Property comprises seven (7) mineral concessions covering an aggregate area of 11,072 hectares (“ha”). The concessions are road accessible, located about 20 kilometres (“km”) south-southeast of the town of Chepes within the renowned Sierra de Las Minas District of southern La Rioja province. The District is reported to host several past producing gold and silver mines. The city of San Juan is about 250 km by paved highway to the west-southwest.

High-grade gold mineralization was reportedly first discovered within the District around 1865 at the Callanas occurrences followed by limited mining conducted on a gold, silver and copper zone. Other sites of historical small scale mining within the ERSA concessions include the El Espinillo, Callanas East and West, El Abrita, Cerro Alto, Las Lajas and San Isidro gold mineralized zones.

The Japanese agency, JICA completed 900 metres (“m”) of diamond drilling in the Callanas area during the 1990’s. Two of the holes returned encouraging intercepts assaying 1m at 9.11 grams per tonne gold (“g/t Au”), 28.59 grams per tonne silver (“g/t Ag”) and 0.42m @ 24.3 g/t Au, 61.10 g/t Ag. More recently, Esperanza Resources has reported that the Callanas West zone has been mapped along a northwest-southeast strike for approximately 4,000 m.

In 2018 the Company completed a limited sampling program as part of its initial due diligence. From the Callanas East trenches results included a 1m sample that returned 5,619 ppb gold. A 2.5m continuous chip sample from the north end of the Callanas West exposure showed 5,905 ppb Au, 20.6 ppm Ag and 0.29% Cu. Later in 2018, Falcon completed its first exploration work on the ERSA Property and on January 7, 2019 reported on its findings. Table 1 summarizes some of the surface sampling results including:

  • from Callana III vein of 27.03 g/t Au across 50 cm; and
  • from the Callana IV vein across a 50 cm width where visible gold was identified, that assayed 45.71 g/t Au with Ag content greater than 100 ppm and Cu analyses of 7,869.60 ppm

Mr. Karim Rayani Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are thrilled to be able to return to Argentina and work with the professionals at Esperanza Resources. The Company’s team in Argentina is headed by Mr. Juan Carlos Navas, a long-time associate and seasoned mining executive. Our previous work on the ERSA concessions has given Falcon the ability to jump into its exploration and development work with its advanced knowledge of the locations and structural controls on significant gold, silver and copper zones.”

The New Option Agreement

Under the renegotiated Agreement to earn its initial 80% interest, the Company has agreed to make payments to the Vendors over a four-year option period totalling 500,000 Falcon common shares and 500,000 share purchase warrants. Each Warrant will entitle the Vendor to purchase one Falcon common share for a period of 12 months for a purchase price set on each date of issue at 125% of the closing price for Falcon shares traded on the Toronto Venture Exchange. During the four-year option period, Falcon is to make minimum expenditures on the Property amounting to US$350,000.

Upon completion of payments and expenditures, Falcon will own 80% and the Vendors will retain 20% ownership in the Property. Following which and for a period of 30 months, Falcon will have the right to purchase the Vendors’ 20% interest (for Falcon’s total ownership of 100% of the Property) for a further payment of 2 million Falcon shares and a US $1.5 payment which includes a 1 % NSR Buy Back with the vendors retaining 1%.

About Falcon Gold Corp., the Central Canada Gold Mine Project, and Jack Lake Trend

Falcon is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on generating, acquiring, and exploring opportunities in the Americas. Falcon’s flagship project, the Central Canada Gold Mine, is approximately 20 km south east of Agnico Eagle’s Hammond Reef Gold Deposit which has Measured & Indicated estimated resources of 208 million tonnes containing 4.5 million ounces of gold. The Hammond Reef gold property lies on the Hammond fault which is a splay off of the Quetico Fault Zone (“QFZ”) and may be the control for the gold deposit. The Central Gold property lies on a similar major splay of the QFZ.

*History of Central Canada gold mine includes;

1901 to 1907 – Shaft constructed to a depth of 12m and 27 oz of gold from 18 tons using a stamp mill.

1930 to 1934 – Central Canada Mines Ltd. installed a 75 ton per day gold mill. Development work included 1,829 m of drilling and a vertical shaft to a depth of 45 m with about 42 m of crosscuts and drifts on the 100-foot level. In December, 1934 the mine had reportedly outlined approximately 230,000 ounces of gold with an average grade of 9.9 g/t Au.

1935 – With the on-going financial crisis of the Great Depression, the Central Canada Mines was unable to fund operations and the mine ceased operations.

1965 – Anjamin Mines completed diamond drilling and in hole S2 returned a 2 ft section of 37.0 g/t Au and hole S3 assayed 44.0 g/t Au across 7 ft.

1985 – Interquest Resources Corp. drilled 13 diamond holes totaling 1,840m in which a 3.8 ft intersection showed 30.0 g/t Au.

2010 to 2012 – TerraX Minerals Inc. conducted programs that included line cutting, geological surveys and 363 m of drilling.

*Historical results reported for the Central Canada Gold Mine project for the period from 1901 to 2012 are recognized as historical in nature only. Previously reported results are considered encouraging and demonstrate the need for additional follow-up gold exploration programs on the property.

July 2020 to December 2020- Falcon Gold Corp. completed its inaugural 17-hole program totaling 2,942.5m of core. In addition, the Company acquired by staking an additional 7,477 ha of mineral claims consisting of 369 units immediately south and northwest of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.’s Hammond Reef property.

The Company also holds 4 additional projects. The Camping Lake Gold property in the world-renowned Red Lake mining camp; a 49% interest in the Burton Gold property with Iamgold near Sudbury Ontario; the Spitfire-Sunny Boy Gold Claims near Merritt, B.C.; and most recently, the Springpole West Property near Red Lake, Ontario.
