Item 7.01.
Regulation FD Disclosure.

On April 29, 2021, Contango ORE, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), issued a press release announcing: (i) the renaming of the Peak Gold Project, the primary exploration project of Peak Gold LLC, a joint venture owned 30% by the Company and 70% by Kinross Gold Corporation, to the “Manh Choh Project”, a traditional Athabascan name; (ii) the receipt by the Company of a resource report relating to the Company’s 30% interest in the Manh Choh Project; and (iii) the Company’s acquisition of the Shamrock Property, consisting of 368 Alaska State mining claims covering approximately 52,920 acres.

A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01. The information included in this Item 7.01 and in Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act.

The terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” as used in the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K are defined terms under Subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K, promulgated under the Securities Act. The estimation of measured resources and indicated resources are not reserves. Resources have greater uncertainty as to their existence and the legal and economic feasibility of extraction than the estimation of proven and probable reserves. Conversion of mineral resources to proven and probable mineral reserves requires a further economic study, such as a preliminary feasibility study or definitive feasibility study. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Many of the statements included or incorporated in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the furnished exhibit constitute “forward-looking statements.” In particular, they include statements relating to future actions, strategies, future operating and financial performance, ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the recent transactions with an affiliate of Kinross Gold Corporation and the Company’s future financial results. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events. Readers are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future operating and financial performance or results and involve substantial risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified, and, consequently, the actual performance of the Company may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, factors described from time to time in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” contained therein).
