Discussions with the property vendors on amending the original agreement to reflect the exploration results to date proved unsuccessful. As a result, Rhyolite has elected to terminate the property agreements and will not be making a total of US$450,000 in cash payments and US$150,000 in share issuance payments required under the March 21, 2021 joint venture and earn-in agreements. The full details of the joint venture and earn-in agreements were described in the Rhyolite press release dated March 31, 2021.
The Company is continuing to evaluate its Brothers Concession in Suriname where it’s inaugural 3,000-metre diamond core drilling program returned 1.8 grams gold per tonne over 10 meters downhole width in hole BRDD-001; 4.6 grams gold per tonne over 6 meters downhole width in hole BRDD-004; 2.4 grams gold per tonne over 8 meters downhole width in hole BRDD-009; and 20.5 grams gold per tonne over 1 meter downhole width in hole BRDD-013 (Press Release May 16, 2022).
