Golden Independence Announces Proposed Spin-Out of Champ Property
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 22, 2021) - Golden Independence Mining Corp. (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 6NN) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved, in principle, a strategic reorganization of the Company's assets pursuant to which the Company would spin off its Champ precious metal property located Castlegar, British Columbia (the "Champ Property") into a newly incorporated subsidiary ("SpinCo"). The Company will continue to hold its interest in the Independence Gold Project.
It is proposed that the transaction will be carried out by way of statutory plan of arrangement (the "Spin-Out") pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). Under the terms of the Spin-Out, shareholders of the Company would exchange their existing common shares of the Company for the same number of new common shares of the Company (having the identical terms of the existing common shares) and common shares of SpinCo. The number of common shares of SpinCo to be issued to each shareholder of the Company under the Spin-Out has not yet been determined. There will be no change in shareholders' holdings in the Company as a result of the Spin-Out.
In connection with the Spin-Out, the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Financing") into SpinCo of a minimum of 6,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.10 per share. The net proceeds of the Financing will be used to fund, among other things, the working capital of SpinCo and exploration at the Champ Property.
The proposed Spin-Out will be subject to the approval of the Company shareholders which the Company intends to seek at its 2021 annual general and special meeting of shareholders (the "Shareholders' Meeting"). The date for the Shareholders Meeting has not yet been determined. The Spin-Out also requires the approval of the British Columbia Supreme Court.
The Company intends to seek a listing of the SpinCo common shares on either the TSX Venture Exchange or the Canadian Securities Exchange but no assurance can be provided that such a listing will be obtained. Any such listing will be subject to SpinCo fulfilling all of the requirements of the applicable stock exchange.
Further details of the Spin-Out, including the date for the Shareholders' Meeting and the number of SpinCo common shares to be granted to shareholders of the Company will be announced in the near future. Shareholders are cautioned that the final details of the Spin-Out are still to be determined and there is no certainty that the Spin-Out will be completed on the terms currently proposed or at all.
