GOLD: Rye Patch pours first gold at refurbished Florida Canyon



NEVADA – The refurbished Florida Canyon mine belonging to Vancouver’s Rye Patch Gold Corp. poured its first doré bar – 485-oz. from the new leach pad – on April 25, 2017. Another 602 oz. were poured from residual leaching of the old Florida Canyon and Standard Gold mines.

Rye Patch began irrigation of the newly built South leach pad in mid-April 2017 only nine months after acquiring the Florida Canyon mine in July 2016. The Company plans to ramp up towards commercial production during the second quarter of 2017.

The Florida Canyon mine is located about 210 km northeast of Reno. Annual production will be about 75,000 oz. of gold in each of eight years. See www.RyePatchGold.com for additional information.
