Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial Obliga

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

(All Dollar Amounts Are In Canadian Dollars)

On March 28, 2013, Vista Gold Corp. (the "Registrant") entered into a credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with Sprott Resource Lending Partnership ("SRLP") for the purpose of establishing a credit facility (the "Credit Facility"). Pursuant to the terms of the Credit Facility, SRLP agreed to lend to the Registrant an aggregate amount of $10,000,000 at an interest rate of 8 percent annum, compounded monthly and payable monthly. The Credit Facility has a maturity date of March 28, 2014 (the "Maturity Date") which may be extended for one year by the mutual agreement of the Registrant and SRLP (an "Extension"), provided that SRLP is satisfied in the Registrant's capacity to repay the loan and that the Registrant's assets are not, or are not about to become, impaired. In exchange for an Extension, the Registrant agreed to pay SRLP an extension fee, payable in common shares of the Registrant, equal to 3.5% of the outstanding balance of the Credit Facility as at the date of such notice of the Registrant to SRLP of its desire for an Extension.

On September 20, 2013, pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement, the Registrant and SRLP entered into a Credit Modification Agreement (the "Credit Modification Agreement") to extend the Maturity Date to March 27, 2015. In exchange for the Extension, the Registrant agreed to issue to SRLP 486,382 shares of the Registrant's common stock ("Extension Shares") with such issuance of Extension Shares expected to take place on October 4, 2013. In addition to extending the Maturity Date, the Credit Modification Agreement also amended the Credit Agreement to: (1) grant a first priority interest over all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of Midas Gold Corp. held by the Registrant pursuant to a share and pledge agreement to be entered into prior to closing;
(2) issue a guarantee of Vista Gold US Inc. ("Vista US") to SRLP pursuant to which Vista US will guarantee the payment and performance of the Registrant's obligations to SRLP pursuant to the Credit Agreement and the security agreements entered into in connection with the Credit Facility; and (3) grant a first priority interest over all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of Midas Gold Corp. held by Vista US pursuant to a share and pledge agreement of Vista US to be entered into prior to closing. In addition, as part of the Credit Modification Agreement Vista US, SRLP and Sprott Global Investments Inc., will enter into a control agreement prior to closing regarding the control of the pledged shares of Midas Gold Corp.

The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Credit Modification Agreement is expected to occur on October 4, 2013.

The above is a summary of the material terms of the Credit Modification Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by the Credit Modification Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
