VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSX-V:BSR) Bluestone Resources Inc. (“Bluestone” or the “Company”) reports its financial results for the quarter ended May 31, 2017, its first quarter-end post-acquisition of the Mita Geothermal project and Cerro Blanco gold project.

“The closing of the acquisition of the Mita Geothermal project and Cerro Blanco gold project from Goldcorp during the second quarter marks an important milestone for Bluestone Resources. The Company is well-funded and focused on working with our local stakeholders and government partners in Guatemala as we advance these projects over the coming years,” said John Robins, Chairman and Interim CEO.

Q2 2017 Highlights

  • Closed a subscription receipt financing for total gross proceeds of $59.2 million (C$80.0 million) on April 20, 2017 and a convertible note financing for total gross proceeds of $2.8 million (C$3.8 million) on March 20, 2017;
  • Acquired Mita Geothermal project and Cerro Blanco gold project from Goldcorp for cash consideration of approximately $20.0 million (which includes the $2.0 non-refundable deposit for the Marlin assets);
  • The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $37.0 million (C$50.0 million) at May 31, 2017; and
  • For the quarter ended May 31, 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $153,000 or $0.04 per share.

Financial Results

For the three-month period ended May 31, 2017, the Company reported a net loss of $153,000, compared to net loss of $28,000 for the same period of 2016. The difference was the result of higher wages, consulting & professional fees and general expenditures related to the transitional growth of the Company from the acquisition of the Cerro Blanco Gold Project and the Mita Geothermal Project from Goldcorp, and the related C$80 million financing.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $37.0 million at May 31, 2017 compared to cash and cash equivalents of $21,000 at November 30, 2016.
