Bravada Options Baxter Au/Ag Property to Kinross

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 3, 2015) - Bravada Gold Corporation ("Bravada" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BVA)(FRANKFURT:BRT) announced today that it has signed an option agreement with Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") for the Company's Baxter gold and silver property, located 6.5 kilometers west of the Bruner district in Nevada's Walker Lane Gold trend. Baxter consists of 51 unpatented lode claims (approximately 410 hectares) and 189 new claims staked by Kinross within the agreement's area-of-interest (an additional 1,530 hectares). Extensive low-sulfidation-type gold and silver mineralization is exposed at surface and has been encountered in reverse-circulation holes drilled by Bravada and others on the property, although much of the property is covered by a relatively thin veneer of gravel or post-mineral volcanics.

The agreement consists of payments made to underlying vendors, which have been reduced to be in compliance with the Kinross agreement, and reimbursement to Bravada for 2014 claim fees paid by it. Kinross has the option to earn a 60% interest in the property by spending $2.0 million over five years and it can earn an additional 15% interest by spending an additional $2 million over two additional years on exploration and development expenses. Upon Kinross completing its earn-in, Bravada may contribute to expenditures at its percentage of interest or be diluted. Should Bravada's working interest reduce below 10%, Bravada would convert its working interest to a 1% NSR royalty.

President Joe Kizis commented, "Success by other companies recently at the nearby Bruner district has renewed interest in our Baxter property, where Bravada drilled several encouraging holes in 2004 and 2006. Kinross has extensive experience with low-sulfidation gold deposits world-wide, and we look forward to having it apply that expertise for our mutual benefit at Baxter."
