Toronto, Ontario, Jan 28, 2019 (Newsfile Corp via COMTEX) — GoldSpot Discoveries Inc. (“GoldSpot”), is pleased to announce that the closing of the proposed offering (the “Offering”) of subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”) of GoldSpot, has been scheduled for January 30, 2019.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Haywood Securities Inc. (together, the “Agents”), have been retained as agents in connection with the Offering of 453,173 Subscription Receipts at a price (the “Issue Price”) of $16.55 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $7,500,013.15. The total number of Subscription Receipts to be sold includes 90,635 Subscription Receipts that the Agents had the option to exercise. Each Subscription Receipt will be automatically converted, without payment of any additional consideration and without further action on the part of the holder thereof, for one common share in the capital of GoldSpot (each, a “GoldSpot Share”) upon satisfaction of the escrow release conditions, subject to adjustment in certain events.
The GoldSpot Shares to be issued upon conversion of the Subscription Receipts will be exchanged for common shares of Duckworth Capital Corp. (“Duckworth”), a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), on the same terms as the other GoldSpot Shares in connection with the proposed acquisition (the “Transaction”) of GoldSpot by Duckworth. As previously announced by Duckworth, the Transaction is intended to constitute Duckworth’s “qualifying transaction” pursuant to the policies of the TSXV. Details of the Transaction are set out in Duckworth’s press release of June 21, 2018, and its filing statement filed on SEDAR on October 31, 2018. Duckworth has applied to the TSXV for an extension to the January 30, 2019, deadline for completing the Transaction.
GoldSpot Enters into Mineral Interest Purchase Agreement
In addition, GoldSpot has entered into a strategic Mineral Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Triple Flag Mining Finance Bermuda Ltd. (“Triple Flag”), a company that focuses on financing and investing in the mining sector. In connection with the Agreement, Triple Flag will acquire 50% of certain Mineral Interests held or to be acquired by GoldSpot, and certain rights with respect to future Mineral Interests that are acquired by GoldSpot, for cash consideration of $100,000.
Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Triple Flag will be granted:
50% of any mineral interests (i.e. streaming, royalty or similar agreement interest or a right or option associated with such an interest, each a “Mineral Interest”) currently held by or entered into by GoldSpot with any third party in the 60-day period following close of the Mineral Interest Purchase Agreement, as well as 50% of any future Mineral Interests entered into within 24 months with the same counterparties; a Right of First Refusal (“ROFR”) to purchase a 50% interest in any Mineral Interest (excluding those Mineral interests for which 50% was granted as per above) that GoldSpot desires to transfer for 50% of the corresponding purchase price.
GoldSpot is in advanced discussions with several counterparties that are anticipated to be included as Mineral Interests transferred under the Agreement. The Agreement is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close in the near term once such conditions are satisfied.
Triple Flag also anticipates subscribing to GoldSpot’s Offering in connection with the Transaction.
