VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2021 / Blue Lagoon Resources Inc. (the “Company“) (CSE:BLLG)(FSE:7BL)(OTCQB:BLAGF) is pleased to announce that its President & CEO, Mr. Rana Vig, has added 1 million shares to his holdings of Blue Lagoon, bringing his total to 3,264,268 shares, representing approximately 4.5% of the Company’s total issued and outstanding common shares.
“As gold pulls back and some investors with short term horizons panic and begin to exit the sector, I am more excited than ever to increase my position in a company that I founded with a vision to be the next gold and silver producer in British Columbia,” said Rana Vig, President and CEO of Blue Lagoon Resources. “And currently, with more than $5 million in treasury and no debt, we have more than 20 people working at the site in a combined effort to complete this year, the 3 key required mining permit amendments as set out by the ministry, one of which has already been completed, and the remaining two scheduled for completion before the end of this summer” he added.
Please note that the Company will evaluate a production decision once all permit requirements are in place. Any production decision in advance of obtaining a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability of the project is associated with increased uncertainty and risk of failure.
The Dome Mountain Gold Project, an all-year accessible property located a short 50-minute drive from Smithers BC., holds both an Environmental Management Act Permit (EMA) and a Mining Permit providing for up to 75,000 tonnes production annually. In addition, the property has 15 known high-grade gold veins (see the Company’s news release dated May 4, 2020) with more than 90% of the property yet to be explored.
Furthermore, on November 18, 2020, the Company announced that after careful analysis of the data received from its first ever property wide flown airborne geophysical survey, the Company decided to significantly expand its land package by staking an additional 7,646 hectares, thereby nearly doubling its previous land position to 18,934.55 hectares. See the two figures below that show the newly staked areas and the promising results from the airborne geophysical surveys that led to the Company’s decision to stake the additional land. For more details see the Company’s news release dated November 18, 2020.
Mr. Vig further commented that “we are in a unique position – first at Dome Mountain – with the key permits in hand; a large prospective land package, 90% of which has never been explored; a healthy treasury with no debt; a 20,000 meter drill program, the largest ever conducted on the property currently underway; additional value derived from the 100% owned Pellaire high-grade gold project; plus, exposure to copper with our 100% owned, drive to, Big Onion porphyry copper project. All of this leads me to believe that we are undervalued, which is why I intend to continue to buy shares in the company.”

Mr. Vig’s previous share position of 2,264,268 shares is escrowed over three years. His current acquisition of 1 million shares was through the exercise of options.

ABOUT RANA VIG
With over 30 years of business experience, Rana Vig has been involved in several publicly traded companies since 2010, first serving as President of an Idaho gold and copper focused exploration company and then as President and Chairman of a TSX senior board listed uranium focused company with one of the largest uranium assets in the world located in Sweden. A keen observer of market trends, in 2018, he became the Chief Executive Officer of Lead Ventures Inc., overseeing and executing the acquisition and $5 billion+ reverse takeover of Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CURA), which raised $520 million, making it the largest Canadian cannabis financing in history. Shortly after that he took the helm of Rockbridge Resources, which he successfully restructured by acquiring, through a reverse takeover, the $2 billion+ Harvest Health & Recreation (HARV), which closed a $300 million financing – making it the third-largest cannabis financing of 2018.
Believing that the mining industry, and gold in particular, was ready to make a comeback, in 2019 he turned his entrepreneurial skills and focus to his latest venture, Blue Lagoon Resources, which he founded and listed on the CSE under the symbol BLLG, in the US on the OTCQB under BLAGF, and in Frankfurt, Germany under 7BL.
