Expert Comments:

Brian Szeto, PI Financial (2/8/16)
"Gold Standard Ventures Corp. has announced that OceanaGold will exercise its right to further increase its ownership in the company to 19.9%. . .this is in response to Goldcorp's $16.1M investment (at $1/share) in it on Feb. 1, 2016, which represented an initial 9.9% interest. . .this bodes well for the investors of Gold Standard as this may lead to a bidding war for it down the road."

"Not only was Nevada-focused gold explorer Gold Standard Ventures Corp. able to attract CA$16.1M in new funding, Goldcorp's placement was also conducted at a premium to the market price (16% above the 20 day Volume Weighted Average Price [VWAP]) and allowed Goldcorp to initiate a relatively large stake in Gold Standard. I would like to take a moment to explain the importance of not just being able to raise cash at a premium, but raising it from one of the industry's most respected companies. Goldcorp usually has a conservative investment approach and the company most definitely isn't acquiring stakes in companies on a daily basis. In fact, Goldcorp has been selling some non-core assets in the recent past, but now seems to be in buying mode again. . .with a mid-tier and a senior gold producer having taken strategic stakes in Gold Standard Ventures in the past few quarters, the project continues to be derisked and Gold Standard Ventures now has ample cash to drill quite a lot of meters. Gold Standard has spent years putting together the second largest continuous land package in the Carlin Trend after Newmont Mining, which sets up the possibility for a meaningful size discovery. . .2016 will be a very important year for Gold Standard as a new large drill program will increase the company's understanding of the mineralized zone. And even after drilling 40,000–50,000 meters, Gold Standard should still end the year with in excess of CA$15M in the treasury (assuming OceanaGold does not exercise its anti-dilution rights), which makes this company stand out from the crowd." read more >

"Gold Standard Ventures Corp.'s flagship project is Railroad-Pinion, a large Carlin Trend property with three defined deposits. It's a land package that was splintered for years, which stymied systematic exploration. . .all three deposits remain open for expansion, and the property offers a good number of other targets. And now the company has a refilled bank account to expand those deposits and test those targets, following a CA$16.1M buy-in by Goldcorp. . .altogether, 2015 was a very successful year for Gold Standard—and apparently Goldcorp thought so too."

Chen Lin, What Is Chen Buying? What Is Chen Selling? (2/2/16)
"Gold Standard Ventures Corp. received an investment from Goldcorp; this is probably the most successful gold exploration company during this downturn. It received investments from OceanaGold and Goldcorp, two of the most successful gold miners; this tells you how good its assets are."

Brien Lundin, Gold Newsletter (Jefferson Financial) (1/21/16)
"Gold Standard Ventures Corp. has been bucking the broader market in recent months, as excitement mounts over the drill results coming in from its Railroad-Pinion project. . .which suggest it may hold the trend's next elephant-sized gold deposit. . .with three significant gold deposits and one of the largest land positions along the Carlin Trend, Railroad-Pinion is a target-rich environment with a lot of exploration upside still left. The company's stock remains a Buy."

Haywood Securities (1/21/16)
"Gold Standard Ventures Corp. has successfully consolidated a highly prospective gold exploration portfolio along the southeast end of Nevada's extremely prolific Carlin Trend. The consolidation has allowed the company to discover and delineate a number of gold deposits within this land package, including the North Bullion sulfide gold project discovered in 2010 and the Pinion and Dark Star oxide gold projects, located approximately 10km to the south of North Bullion. . .Gold Standard has successfully defined NI-43-101-compliant resources for both Pinion and Dark Star. . .drill results are expected from Dark Star and Pinion over the coming weeks."
