Winston Gold Project Sale and Dividend
As discussed in previous news, the company has been working towards releasing shareholder value by means of sale or spin-out of its high-grade Winston Gold Project, New Mexico, USA.
Management is pleased to announce that it has been in advanced discussions with a private group for the sale of the Winston Gold Project for shares in the private company. As has been communicated, the company will be distributing these shares to existing shareholders as a form of dividend, with details to follow as they are finalised.
FAR has been committed to rewarding shareholder commitment by leveraging the high gold and silver grades at Winston, New Mexico, USA; the new management team will focus initially on completion of a transaction that releases these undervalued precious metals assets.
In late 2013, the company conducted a site visit to the Winston Project, including the Little Granite Mine area. Three composite samples were collected from piles of quartz dump material near the mouth of the decline reportedly excavated in the early 1980s.
Two of these samples, representative of the main style of quartz present, returned values of 179 g/t Ag and 2.9 g/t Au and 170 g/t Ag and 6.7 g/t Au respectively. This material shows classic boiling textures and is thought to represent material from the upper part of a well-developed epithermal system. A third composite sample of fine grained grey “cherty” quartz material found on one of the dumps returned values of 1,439 g/t Ag and 25.2 g/t Au. The latter result supports historic reports of “bonanza-grade” shoots being present within the main vein system mined.
Two further samples of quartz vein material exposed in the walls of a collapsed stope immediately north of the main shaft returned values of 226 g/t Ag and 2.2 g/t Au and 24 g/t Ag and 0.3 g/t Au. Both of these samples may have been subject to surface leaching effects.
These results are historical. An updated NI 43-101 technical report will be filed in due course.
