Vancouver, BC – June 16, 2020, Ethos Gold Corp. (“Ethos” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ECC) (OTCQB: ETHOF) is pleased to announce amendments to its earn-in agreements for the Iron Point, Nevada and Perk-Rocky, British Columbia exploration projects. These amendments were negotiated in part to allow additional time to complete the earn-in agreements while the COVID-19 pandemic is active.
Iron Point Earn-in Agreement Amendment
On May 17, 2019 Ethos announced it had executed an agreement to earn in to a 50% undivided interest in the gold and silver rights at the Iron Point project 22 miles east of Winnemucca, Nevada, by spending CDN$ 5 million over three years, including a minimum expenditure of CDN $1.0 million in the first year. An amendment to this agreement has now been executed whereby the term on the earn-in has been increased from three years to five years, and the minimum annual work expenditures starting in the second year of the earn-in are now set at US$250,000. Ethos has met its obligation to spend CDN $1.0 million in the first year of the agreement. All other terms of the original earn-in agreement remain unchanged.
Perk-Rocky Earn-in Agreement Amendment
On May 16, 2019 Ethos announced it had entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Perk-Rocky copper-gold porphyry project located 225 km west of Williams Lake, British Columbia. Based on the first year of work on the property Ethos has now met the full expenditure requirements for the option agreement and recently completed the required first anniversary cash and share payments. An amendment to the option agreement has now been executed to defer the second year cash and share payment from May 10, 2021 to August 16, 2021. This will allow Ethos additional time in the summer of 2021 to complete and assess project work programs including a possible drill program before making a decision regarding the second anniversary option payment.
