Terraco Gold Humboldt Range Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Terraco Gold Corp. ("Terraco" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TEN) is pleased to announce a Humboldt Range update including activity on its Spring Valley Assets.

Terraco Humboldt Range Background

Terraco holds net smelter return ("NSR") royalty assets of up to 3% on claims covering the vast majority of the currently outlined Spring Valley gold deposit. The Spring Valley gold project is operated by Barrick Gold Corp. ("Barrick") and is a joint venture with Midway Gold Corp. ("Midway") whereby Barrick is the 70% partner. Terraco's royalty assets include direct NSR ownership, options to purchase NSR royalties and a right of first refusal to purchase a 1.0% NSR on an area of interest within a half-mile of the core claim block. Terraco's holds its Spring Valley royalty assets and its northerly adjoining 35 km2 Moonlight exploration project land holdings within one Nevada domiciled subsidiary (collectively, the "Spring Valley Assets").

Spring Valley Activity - Barrick

Activity on the Spring Valley gold project is continuing aggressively with Barrick advancing the project to a pre-feasibility stage and confirming production potential for the project (see Barrick's April 30, 2014 announcement Barrick Reports First Quarter 2014 Results(1) and Midway's May 16, 2014 announcement, Midway Reports Barrick Advances to Pre-Feasibility Spring Valley Gold Project, Nevada(2)). In addition, Midway announced that it had received Barrick's 2014 budget regarding the Spring Valley gold project and that it included USD$8,300,000 for project development and USD$5,000,000 for exploration work. The total budget of USD$13,300,000 announced was to advance the project (see Midway's announcement May 16, 2014, Midway Announces Barrick's $13.3 Million Planned 2014 Expenditures for Spring Valley, Nevada(2)).

Southern Humboldt Range New Entrant - Sumitomo

Regional Southern Humboldt Range activity, in addition to the above noted Spring Valley developments, includes a new entrant along trend adjoining Terraco's Moonlight Project to the North. Renaissance Gold Inc. ("Renaissance") has signed an exploration agreement with Sumitomo Corporation's U.S. subsidiary, Summit Mining Exploration II, Inc., to earn up to a 70% interest in the Fourth of July project that is along strike (to the north) from the Rochester Mine, Barrick's Spring Valley and Terraco's Moonlight Project. Terraco's Moonlight Project now sits between two major mining companies in Barrick and Sumitomo.

"With the completion of Barrick's USD$38,000,000 earn-in on the Spring Valley gold project (in February 2014) and the subsequent announcements made by Midway that Barrick has moved to prefeasibility and is spending USD$13,300,000 in 2014 on the project, we are feeling confident that the Spring Valley gold project will become the mine we had hoped for when we acquired our Spring Valley royalty assets. In addition, there is more activity district wide in the Southern Humboldt trend with other majors like Sumitomo coming into the mix," said President and CEO Todd Hilditch.
