Vancouver, B.C., December 21, 2022 – Silver Range Resources Ltd. [TSX-V:SNG] (“Silver Range” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has renegotiated and concluded a new option on the Legal Tender Property (“Property”) with QLM Royston Hills, LLC (“QLM”).
Legal Tender is a high-grade silver prospect located 62 km NW of Tonopah in the Royston Hills. The property is in the Republic Mining District, a silver-gold epithermal camp which produced briefly in the early 1900’s. Legal Tender covers the historic Farris, Hyland and Black Butte mines and numerous other exploration workings. The mineral showings are clustered along the 1200-metre-long Main Trend and the intersecting 400-metre-long NE Trend. Grab samples collected by Silver Range on the property have returned up to 1,875 g/t Ag and 4.94 g/t Au.
QLM can acquire a 100% interest in the Legal Tender Property over a four-year period by making cash payments totaling $410,000 (all amounts in United States dollars). An initial payment of $10,000 was made on signing. Silver Range will retain a 2% net smelter return (“NSR”), payable on proceeds from any production in excess of 5,000 tonnes. QLM may purchase one half of the NSR for $1,000,000 at any time prior to commercial production.
In addition to the NSR, Silver Range will receive a one-time defined resource payment (“DRP”) equal to $5.00 per ounce of gold and $0.10 per ounce of silver contained in any measured or indicated resource identified on the Property. Annual advance NSR payments of $10,000 will be due and owing on the fifth and subsequent anniversaries of the option agreement if no measured or indicated resource has been identified by December 1, 2027.
