(NYSE American: DC) ("Dakota Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has extended the option term from September 7, 2024 to March 7, 2026 of its option agreement with Homestake Mining Company of California ("Homestake"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick"), over certain of Homestake's surface rights and residual facilities in the Homestake District in South Dakota.
Jonathan Awde, President, CEO and Director of Dakota Gold stated, "Extending the term of this option agreement provides the Company with much greater flexibility and alignment. We appreciate Barrick's support and collaboration and value Barrick as our partner in revitalizing the Homestake District.
