According to Vista Gold’s CEO and President, Frederick H. Earnest, the resource conversion drill campaign continues to encounter mineralization in the category of inferred mineral resource. The company has obtained assays from 18 holes out of 24, and will include the results into an updated resource calculation, which may be completed by next week. Remaining drill campaign results will be included in the resource calculation, which will create the base for the definitive feasibility study which is to likely to be completed in early 2013.

Vista Gold has completed the drilling program. The company’s contractors have logged and sampled the core, based on the instructions of Mr. Frank Fenne, Vista's VP of Exploration. Pine Creek-based North Australia Laboratories prepared and tested the samples. Northern Territory Environmental Laboratories specifically finished second lab check assays. A 50 g fire assay technique analyzes the grades of gold. Mr. Frank Fenne reviewed core logging, preparation and assaying.
