Vista Gold Corp. Announces First Quarter 2017 Results

Denver, Colorado, April 28, 2017  -  

Vista Gold Corp. (the “Company,” “we” or “our”) (NYSE MKT: VGZ) (TSX: VGZ) today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Management’s quarterly conference call to discuss these results is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. MDT on May 3, 2017.  The Company’s unaudited financial statements, Management’s Discussion and Analysis together with other important disclosures can be found in the Company’s  Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed on April 28, 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Canadian securities regulatory authorities. 

Summary of First Quarter 2017 Financial Results 

We reported a  net loss of $2.8 million or $0.03 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2017.  This includes $2.5 million of net operating expenses; and an unrealized $0.3 million mark-to-market loss on our investment in Midas Gold Corp. (“Midas”).  During the three months ended March 31, 2016, we reported a  net loss of $0.7 million or $0.01 per share inclusive of $2.2 million of net operating expenses; a $0.7 million payment we received from the Australian Government under a research and development incentive program; an unrealized $0.5 million mark-to-market gain on our investment in Midas; and $0.3 million of other income.  

Our working capital at March 31, 2017 totaled approximately $26.0 million, including cash and short-term investments (comprised of government securities) of approximately $21.8 million. The Company has no debt.    

Frederick H. Earnest, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We  believe that we have sufficient working capital to cover our fixed costs for several years; to execute selected discretionary programs intended to optimize and add value to Mt Todd; and to complete all of the critical milestones, including permitting, necessary to advance the Mt Todd project to the point of a development decision.    

“We are working to complete the bulk metallurgical test work to evaluate automated ore sorting, grinding circuit optimization and improved leach recoveries that could support material improvements to the economics of the Mt Todd gold project without significant alterations to the current flow sheet. This work is expected to be completed in the third quarter of this year.  An updated prefeasibility study, which would integrate these potential flow sheet alterations and the associated economic benefits, will likely be completed after that.”
