Deal on Austin-area project
Miranda Gold Corp. of Vancouver said last week it struck a deal with Australia’s Ramelius Resources Ltd. that allows Ramelius to earn a joint venture interest in the Big Blue gold project in Lander County.
The deal calls for Ramelius to spend $4 million over five years on the project to earn a 60 percent interest in the property 13 miles north of Austin. Further spending by Ramelius would increase its interest in the property.
Concerned that a spate of COVID-19-related lawsuits could bankrupt businesses, members of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce implored the state’s congressional delegation during the chamber’s annual D.C. retreat to pass a federal liability protection measure.
