In addition to the cash payments, Sierra will receive a 1% NSR for three (3) years commencing upon the date of mineral extraction/production.
Sierra views the sale of Silveria, anon-core asset, as another important milestone allowing the Company to focus its efforts and resources on the newly optioned Nevada projects and other potential opportunities. The sale of Silveria provides a non-dilutive source of capital for the Company and reduces its liabilities abroad. Given the strong market conditions for gold, Sierra is committed to focusing on mining friendly jurisdictions with clear advantages to a pathway to production.
As previously announced on October 20,2020, the Company is proceeding to conduct geological mapping and other preliminary field work on the Nevada mineral claims. During this second field examination, the main focus will be on getting a more detailed assessment of the geologic framework of the multiple known mineralized and altered zones, such that the potential next steps for the Company’s larger exploration effort can be presented. The State of Nevada has been continually ranked in the top 5 by the Fraser Institute in its annual assessment of mining jurisdictions that best encourage mining investment. Over the course of the Nevada's long mining history, the state has built up world-class mining infrastructure and is a powerhouse for precious metal
production and exploration. The Fraser Institute attractiveness index details factors such as favourable
regulations, taxation levels, the quality of infrastructure, political stability, security, and labour and skills availability.
