Vista Gold Corp. Grants Purchasers A Six Month Extension For Final Payment For The Los Cardones Project

DENVER, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vista Gold Corp. ("Vista" or the "Company") (NYSE MKT and TSX: VGZ) today announced that it has agreed to extend the due date for the second (and final) US$6.0 million payment for the Los Cardones gold project in Baja California Sur, Mexico by six months to July 31, 2014.  

On October 18, 2013, we announced the closing of sale of the Los Cardones gold project in Baja California Sur, Mexico, to the Invecture Group ("Invecture") and RPG Structured Finance S.a.r.l. (together with Invecture (the "Purchasers")) for US$13.0 million. Terms of the sale include US$7.0 million paid at closing and an optional second payment of US$6.0 million due by January 30, 2014.  The Purchasers have the option to elect, in their discretion, not to make the second payment of US$6.0 million, in which case Vista would retain the US$7.0 million already paid and the project. As a result of permitting delays, Vista and the Purchasers have today agreed to extend the due date of the US$6.0 million payment to July 31, 2014.  As consideration for this extension, the Purchasers have agreed to increase the second payment from US$6.0 million to US$6.25 million. The Purchasers will continue to retain the option to elect, in their discretion, not to make this second payment of US$6.25 million, in which case Vista will retain the US$7.0 million already paid and the project.

Vista's President and CEO, Fred Earnest, stated, "We are satisfied that Invecture remains committed to advancing the Los Cardones gold project and continues to expend the human and financial resources needed to obtain the permits for the project. We believe that our current cash position will be sufficient to fund the Company into the third quarter of 2014."
