Gold Prices Fluctuate on Anticipated Government Initiatives

NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The price of gold increased to a one week high on Tuesday after the dollar and real U.S. Treasury yields declined as investors continue to anticipate a fast-tracked stimulus package in the U.S. Chances for a major stimulus package are increasing and thus reinforce market-derived inflation expectations. Such measures have also impacted the price of precious metals. "Rising breakevens and today's dollar weakness will attract renewed interest back into gold and also silver, given the pull from rising copper and platinum prices," said Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank A/S according to Bloomberg. "Speculators are carrying a light load in both gold and silver, but for now we need to see the yellow metal break the double top around USD 1,875 in order to attract renewed momentum."

Summary of Sampling and Analysis Results

In addition to the pandemic and its implications, various recent technological innovations have had an impact on gold demand as well. Certain financial services, through which gold can be purchased, have shared recent developments designed to make gold trading easier and more accessible to a wider demographic. For example, the British-based Glint Pay Services announced a new peer-to-peer payment services which allows users to send amounts of gold directly to each other, all within the company's app. "Glint's P2P technology enables gold, trusted globally, to be used as money in electronic payments beyond the existing fiat money system; it frees us all from the whims of government-issued currencies," said Glint CEO and founder Jason Cozens.

Falcon Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FG) (OTC: FGLDF) announced breaking news yesterday that, "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."

Note the high-grade gold beyond the analytical detection limit of 10,000 ppb Au were assayed for better upper grade results. of 10,000 ppb Au were assayed for better upper grade results.

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%..."
