Vancouver, BC, June 9, 2022 – Falcon Gold Corp. (FG: TSX-V), (3FA: GR), (FGLDF: OTCQB); (“Falcon Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the option and work requirements on the Central Canada project to earn its 100% interest in the project located in the Hutchinson Township, Ontario.
Falcon has completed all its cash share and exploration expenditures over the 4-year option. Falcon has the right to purchase half of the 2% NSR (Net Smelter Royalty) for a payment of $ 1,000,000, leaving the vendors with 1%. With annual production pre-payments of $ 10,000 which will be deducted against future royalty payments.
The Company previously announced February 2, 2022, and April 4, 2022, the planning and expansion of phase 3 drilling to commence early March however due to drill crew delay and availability we had to push back the start date. Currently, due to increased water levels in rivers in the area the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources, and Forestry issued a flood warning late May as water levels had increased blocking access to the project. The Company is monitoring the situation and will report back when the situation clears.
The Company has decided for the near term to focus on its Central Newfoundland project portfolio and is pleased to report crews have been mobilized at our Gander North and South projects and at our Golden Brook project with Joint Venture partner Marvel Discovery Corp.
