Renaissance Gold Signs Earn-in Agreement with Ocean aGold on its Fat Lizard Project

Renaissance Gold Inc. (TSX.V:REN / OTCQB:RNSGF) (“RenGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to  announce that it has signed a definitive earn-in agreement with OceanaGold U.S. Holdings Inc. (“OceanaGold”), a subsidiary of OceanaGold Corporation (TSX:OGC;ASX:OGC) on its Fat Lizard Project. Upon signing the definitive agreement, OceanaGold paid the Company US$25,000. 

Robert Felder, President and CEO states “We are very pleased to have completed a second earn-in  agreement with OceanaGold. They have a proven track record and are very active in Nevada and are a  welcome addition to our list of partners. RenGold continues to maintain a very active exploration program  throughout Nevada, and with the addition of this agreement, the Company currently has eight active  exploration agreements in Nevada funded by six different partners.” 

Fat Lizard: OceanaGold has the option to earn up to a 51% interest in the Fat Lizard Project by spending  US$3,000,000 over a five-year period, and making payments to the Company totaling US$225,000. In  addition, OceanaGold must spend US$250,000 (committed expenditure) within 12 months of signing the  definitive agreement. Upon vesting, OceanaGold has a one-time option to elect to earn an additional 24%  interest on the Fat Lizard Project by spending an additional US$5,000,000 over a four-year period from the  date of exercise of the Phase II earn-in option. 

The Fat Lizard Project, Nye County, Nevada comprises a gold and silver bearing volcanic-hosted, low sulfidation epithermal system. The presence of steam-heated alteration suggests a shallow level of exposure  above a boiling zone. Mineralization occurs along a 1.2 km long mineralized fault zone and is open to the  west. A half-graben setting controls mineralization and suggests structural intersections and horsetailing  are present at moderate depths. Spectral measurements have been used to map high-level alteration  including kaolinite, dickite, and alunite-bearing zones. Limited illite-smectite alteration is present in a  narrow upthrown structural block and is associated with anomalous gold (up to 0.49 g/t) and silver (up to  10.8 g/t). Potential Au-Ag-rich mineralization may occur at relatively shallow depths within a boiling  horizon. This prospect has never been drilled.
