Visionary Gold Corp. Acquires Lease on Past-Producing Mint Gold Leaf Mine in Lewiston District, 3.7km from Wolf Gold Project

Visionary Gold Corp (TSXV: VIZ) ("Visionary" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to lease, with an option to buy (the "Agreement"), the Mint Gold Leaf Mine, which consists of three unpatented mining claims on sixty acres, which is contiguous with other Visionary claims in Lewiston Gold District, of Fremont County, Wyoming. The Mint Gold Leaf Mine contains two shafts, 150 metres apart with more than a dozen prospect pits along a north east trending, 1,500 metre shear structure that is exposed at surface. According to past geologic reports, sampling in the 1980s yielded assay results of 1.29 oz per tonne gold and 3.05 oz per tonne gold across a 0.76 metre vein exposure within the mine workings, which illustrates the potential for high-grade gold mineralization. The abundance of prospect pits along the mineralized structure also indicates potential for additional mineralization in parallel veins within the shear corridor. Thorough sampling of the historic workings at the Mint Gold Leaf Mine will commence shortly, as Visionary begins its 2021 exploration program and prepares for drilling this summer at its primary target just 3.7km north at the Wolf Mine.

The initial term of the Agreement expires on March 23, 2026, subject to the option of the Company to extend the expiry date for a further five-year period. Visionary will pay to the lessor the sum of USD $30,000 per year during the term of the Agreement and has an option to buy the property for USD $3,000,000 at any point during the term of the Agreement. Additionally, during the term of the Agreement, a 4% net smelter returns royalty is payable to the current owners of the property; however Visionary has the right to buy down the royalty to 2% for USD $2,000,000 per percentage point. Visionary can terminate the Agreement at any time, without penalty.

Visionary CEO, Wes Adams comments: "We are pleased that the 2021 exploration season is upon us and are excited to be kicking it off by adding another very compelling gold target with high grades reported in near-surface veins. Exploration activities are now underway and summer drilling at the Wolf Mine is right around the corner. The initial drill program should provide investors with a clearer view of the geologic potential of the district. Adding the Mint Gold Leaf Mine certainly complements our 25.26 km2 land package and gives us another exciting target to advance toward drilling this summer."

Historic samples assay results reported from the Mint Gold Leaf Mine ranged from detection limit up to 3.05 oz per tonne gold (Hausel, 2011). Visionary has not verified these results and a due diligence program has not yet been completed which could confirm the grade and extent of mineralization.

Awalé Resources CEO Touts Odienné Project’s Potential for "Big Gold-Copper System"

Drilling at Awalé Resources’ (TSX:ARIC) Charger target within the Odienné project in Côte d’Ivoire has hit “one of the highest-grade gold intersections," according to the company’s CEO, Andrew Chubb.

“It's a (really) significant drill hole. We were testing a new sort of 3D framework at that target. We drilled holes there and got 50 to 100 meter intercepts … We adjusted our interpretation and went in to test that, and found that it's a breccia system. We found a new breccia pipe and got the broadest intercept of the actual geology,” he said.

“The biggest thing for us is that we believe we are sitting on a big gold-copper system. And there are other discoveries that we've had within that system as well, there are two other discoveries, and it's really evolving into what looks like a big mining camp.”
