Toronto, ON / July 5, 2016 / Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX.V-VIT) "Victoria" or the "Company" is pleased to announce that the Company has agreed to purchase a used all-season camp complete with 110 dorm rooms, industrial kitchen, recreational & mud room, and arctic corridors for the price of $275,000. The camp is in excellent condition and only minor refurbishment is required for full occupancy. Importantly, the camp is currently located less than 100km from Victoria's Eagle Gold Project ensuring the cost and logistics of moving the camp to site is relatively modest.
Victoria will add the newly acquired camp to the already existing 100-person all-season camp at the Eagle project site. With over 200 dorm rooms, full kitchen, recreation and mud room now acquired, the Company expects to realize nearly $6 million in upfront capital camp savings for the Feasibility Study Update currently underway (see News Release dated April 7, 2016).
John McConnell, President and CEO, said "The camp looks great and we are pleased that our strong balance sheet and treasury place us in a position to take advantage of exceptional opportunities such as this one. In addition to realizing significant upfront capital savings, the camp enables a more aggressive execution schedule once construction begins as we can immediately mobilize over 200 construction personnel directly to site."
A PowerPoint Presentation showing a series of photos of the newly purchased camp will be made available on the Company's website www.vitgoldcorp.com.
The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Paul D. Gray, P.Geo., as the Qualified Person.
