NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
TORONTO, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — G2 Goldfields Inc. (“G2” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GTWO; OTCQX:GUYGF) announces that it proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of 17,000,000 common shares of the Company (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.60 per Share, for gross proceeds of $10,200,000.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance exploration activities at the Company’s 19,200-acre OKO project, Guyana and for general corporate purposes. The Offering is expected to close in July 2022 and is conditional on the satisfaction of customary conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period.
The Company has agreed to pay registered representatives that arrange for purchasers in the Offering a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of amounts raised by such registered representatives and a number of broker warrants equal to a maximum of 6% of the number of Shares sold by such registered representatives. Each broker warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Share at a price of $0.70 per share until the close of business on the date which is 12 months from the close date of the Offering.
Insiders of the Company may subscribe for up to $1,500,000 of the Offering. Patrick Sheridan, G2’s Executive Chairman, has committed to subscribing for 1,700,000 Shares ($1,020,000). Mr. Sheridan stated, “we are delighted to announce this financing, backed primarily by four major institutional investors, which will allow the Company to expand and expedite the current exploration program. The Company will be mobilizing two additional diamond drill rigs to the property to complement the three rigs currently operating. Additional resources will also be committed to the greenfields exploration program currently in progress at the 19,200 acre Oko Project”.
The Offering will be considered a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) as a result of the insider participation. Pursuant to Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval because the Shares trade on the TSXV and the fair market value of insiders’ participation in the Offering will be below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101. The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Offering, but it may be filed less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
