Denver, Colorado, April 27, 2018

– Vista Gold Corp. (TSX & NYSE American: VGZ) (“Vista” or the “Company”) today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. Management’s quarterly conference call to discuss these results is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. MDT on May 4, 2018. 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 27, 2018 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Canadian securities regulatory authorities.


Summary of Q1, 2018 Financial Results


We reported a net loss of $0.9 million or $0.01 per share for the three-month period ended March 31, 2018. This includes $3.1 million of operating expenses, a $2.0 million mark-to-market gain on our investment in Midas Gold Corp. and other income of $0.2 million.


Our working capital at March 31, 2018 totaled approximately $18.6 million, including cash and short-term investments (comprised of government securities) of approximately $13.3 million. The Company currently has no debt.


Frederick H. Earnest, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In the first quarter, we announced the achievement of two important milestones for the Mt Todd gold project. The approval of the authorization required under the Australian Commonwealth Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Protection Act marks the successful conclusion of several years of environmental permitting work. The updated preliminary feasibility study results demonstrate the significant positive impact of the technical programs that were completed during the preceding 18 months. We are now undertaking optimization studies which we expect to complete over the next two quarters.”
