DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2021 / Gold Resource Corporation ( “ GRC ” or the “ Company “) (NYSE American:GORO) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive arrangement agreement (the “ Arrangement Agreement “) with Aquila Resources Inc. (“ Aquila “) (TSX:AQA)(OTCQB:AQARF) providing for the acquisition by GRC of all the issued and outstanding common shares of Aquila by way of a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “ Transaction “).

As announced by GRC on September 7, 2021, pursuant to the Transaction GRC will, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, acquire all the issued and outstanding Aquila shares for 0.0399 of a GRC share per Aquila share (the “ Exchange Ratio “). Based upon the 20-day volume-weighted average price (“ VWAP “) of GRC’s shares on the NYSE American stock exchange on September 3, 2021, being the last trading day prior to the date of the announcement of the Transaction, the Exchange Ratio represents a 29% premium to the 20-day VWAP of Aquila’s shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange as of such date. The Exchange Ratio represents consideration of C$0.09 per Aquila share (the “ Per Share Price “), reflecting a premium of 12.5%, based upon the closing prices of the Aquila shares and the GRC shares on September 3, 2021. The Per Share Price implies an aggregate acquisition price for 100% of the outstanding Aquila shares of approximately C$30.9 million.

Upon closing of the Transaction, the existing GRC and Aquila shareholders will own approximately 85.1% and 14.9%, respectively, of the combined company on a fully diluted basis.

Allen Palmiere, President and Chief Executive Officer of GRC, said: “This Transaction offers an attractive opportunity to the shareholders of Aquila and GRC to develop the Back Forty Project using GRC’s strong balance sheet and cash flows. In addition, the combination of our complementary gold-rich assets will enhance both our mineral inventory and jurisdiction diversification. The announcement by Aquila yesterday, that it had closed the sale of its Bend and Reef exploration properties, was an important step in the process for signing the Arrangement Agreement. With this Transaction, we look forward to becoming a new intermediate gold producer with a peer leading growth profile.”

Strategic Rationale for the Transaction
As previously announced on September 7, 2021, the benefits of the Transaction to GRC and Aquila shareholders include the following:

  • Accretive Transaction for GRC Shareholders. The Transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to GRC shareholders on a net asset value basis.
  • Significantly Improved Gold Resource Profile. Based upon the parties’ respective public disclosure and GRC’s technical due diligence to date on the Back Forty Project, GRC anticipates that its gold resources have the potential to increase by in excess of 500% upon completion of the Transaction.
  • Growth Profile and Financial Strength of Combined Company. The combined company is expected to benefit from a peer leading growth profile, a robust balance sheet with no debt and cash of US$30.2 million at June 30, 2021, free cash flow generation from its Don David Gold Mine and the synergies that generally accrue from scale in the areas of general and administrative expenses, from less duplication of salaries, wages and other public company expenses, improved concentrate sales and marketing and supply chain efficiencies. Its position of financial strength is expected to result in an improved ability to access required additional financing to fund the Back Forty Project’s capital expenditures.
  • Enhanced Project and Jurisdictional Diversification. Each of GRC and Aquila is currently a single-asset, single-jurisdiction company. Through the Transaction, GRC and Aquila shareholders will have the opportunity to participate in the ongoing growth of a multi-jurisdictional, diversified precious and base metal producer with exposure to gold, silver, zinc, copper and lead through GRC’s producing Don David Gold Mine in Oaxaca, Mexico and Aquila’s Back Forty Project in Menominee County, Michigan.
  • Enhanced Market Presence and Re-Rating Potential. GRC currently benefits from inclusion in the VanEck Junior Gold Miners ETF (the “ GDXJ “) and from an average daily trading volume of approximately 1 million shares, trailing three months. The Transaction is intended to result in the Back Forty Project being placed into production on a more accelerated basis, funded by cash flow generation, thus elevating the combined company to intermediate producer status. Following the completion of the Transaction, GRC is expected to continue to be included in the GDXJ and to benefit from an enhanced capital markets profile in the United States and Canada, as well as increased trading liquidity and broadened appeal to global index, resource, and generalist investors. This offers the potential for a re-rating to a multiple more in line with other intermediate gold producers.
  • Experienced Management Team. The combined company will benefit from GRC’s and Aquila’s technical and operational teams’ expertise in polymetallic open pit and underground mines. The GRC executive team has a demonstrated record of success in developing and operating mining projects in the Americas.
  • Immediate and Significant Premium to Aquila Shareholders. Based on the 20-day VWAPs of the GRC shares and the Aquila shares, the Transaction offers an immediate and significant premium to Aquila’s shareholders of 29%. Given the current market environment and lack of liquidity for the shares of Aquila, GRC continues to believe that this a compelling value proposition.

Demonstrated Consistent Dividend History. Post-Transaction, GRC intends to continue to pay dividends in accordance with its past practice. The recent dividend of US$0.01 per GRC share, paid to shareholders on September 30, 2021, continues the more than ten years of consistent dividend payments by GRC.

Support for the Transaction from Key Aquila Stakeholders

  • Each of Orion Mine Finance and Hudbay Minerals Inc., which hold 28.3% and 10.4%, respectively, of the issued and outstanding Aquila shares, has entered into a voting support agreement with GRC pursuant to which they have agreed to vote their Aquila shares in favour of the Transaction. In addition, all of the directors and officers of Aquila holding approximately 1.9% Aquila shares in aggregate have also executed a voting support agreement.
  • Osisko Bermuda Limited which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd and a party to gold and silver stream agreements with Aquila relating to the Back Forty Project, has also reiterated that it considers GRC to be an approved purchaser under those agreements, and that it is supportive of the Transaction.

Board Approvals
The Arrangement Agreement has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both GRC and Aquila. The Aquila board’s approval of the Arrangement Agreement was based in part on the unanimous recommendation of a special committee of independent directors of Aquila which was appointed to consider the Transaction. The board of Aquila has received an opinion from one of its financial advisors, PI Financial Corp., that based upon and subject to the assumptions, limitations, and qualifications set forth therein, the consideration to be received by Aquila shareholders pursuant to the Transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to Aquila shareholders.

Transaction Summary
The Transaction will require the approval of 66⅔ percent of the votes cast by Aquila shareholders at a special meeting of shareholders (the “ Aquila Shareholder Meeting “). The Aquila Shareholder Meeting is scheduled to be held on November 17, 2021. The Transaction is also subject to approval by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) and applicable stock exchange approvals. The Transaction does not require the approval of GRC’s shareholders.

In addition to shareholder, court and regulatory approvals, the Transaction is also subject to the satisfaction of certain other closing conditions that are customary for a transaction of this nature, and each of GRC and Aquila has provided appropriate interim period covenants regarding the operation of its business in the ordinary course. The Arrangement Agreement includes customary deal protection provisions pursuant to which Aquila has agreed not to solicit any other acquisition proposal (subject to customary fiduciary out rights), has agreed to grant GRC the right to match any superior proposal, and will pay a termination fee of US$1,000,000 to GRC if the Arrangement Agreement is terminated in certain circumstances.

Vancouver, British Columbia, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — St. James Gold Corp. (the Company) (TSXV: LORD) (OTCQB: LRDJF) (FSE: BVU3) is pleased to provide a corporate update on its activities for 2021.


  • Completion of 2021 drill exploration program on its Florin Gold Project in the Yukon Territory
  • Successful capital financings of $10,000,000
  • Expansion of stock listing in the FSE and OTCQB markets
  • Successful DTC listing on the OTC market
  • Commencement of work exploration activities on its Newfoundland claims

Following the successful participation of last week’s New Orleans Gold Conference, one of the first large scale in person conferences of its kind in the past 20 months. The Company is awaiting the core drill sample results of its recently completed field season drill program at the Florin Gold Project in the Yukon Territory, Canada. In spite of a late start in the season, the field team completed 3,613 metres of diamond drilling intended to test the projected extensions of mineralization adjacent to the 2.47 million ounce inferred gold resource (170,993,000 tonnes grading 0.45g/t Au with a 0.30g/t Au cut-off).

The current inferred resource extends approximately 900 metres along strike of the Jethro fault which has been traced for five kilometres and is the site of three further, significant geochemical anomalies. In addition to the assay results expected to be received in the coming weeks, the field season saw soil geochemistry surveys completed to fill in previously unsampled areas of the Property, both of which will assist in guiding targets for the proposed 2022 drill campaign.

In addition to the acquisition of the option agreement on the Florin Gold Project, the Company is preparing to explore its properties – Grub Line and Quinn Lake – in Newfoundland, Canada. The Grub Line property, in particular, is situated adjacent to the licenses held by New Found Gold, a company that recently announced a $45 m. non-brokered private placement by Eric Sprott, and an expansion of the current drill program at the adjacent Queensway Property to a total of 400,000 metres. As a result of the proliferation of activity in the region, St. James Gold is pleased to announce that it has amended option agreement terms for both the Grub Line and Quinn Lake properties, specifically offering additional payments to the vendors if it obtains an NI 43-101 Report estimating an inferred mineral resource of not less than 750,000 oz Au, up from 100,000 oz Au.

The Quinn Lake project is well situated along strike from the Valentine Lake gold project operated by Marathon Gold Corp. and is surrounded to the northwest by the highest gold anomalies found in tills by Noranda in 1989. In addition, mineralized boulder trains were reported along the boundary to the southwest by the predecessors of Marathon Gold Corp., and new discoveries were made on adjacent ground to the northeast. Due to complex glacial history of the area and the nature of surficial materials sampled (e.g. gold-rich boulder trains), it is possible that the bedrock sources of gold are located on the Quinn Lake property.

The proposed fieldwork activities planned for Quinn Lake will be the first systematic and interdisciplinary approach to unravel the geology of the area and identify gold mineralization targets that will be drill-tested this summer. A site visit, performed to comply with NI 43-101 reporting on the Quinn Lake property, confirmed good access, moderate topographic and climate conditions and presence of local amenities, all of which are considered conducive to conducting cost-effective exploration programs.

While the Company has been active undertaking field activities, it has also expanded its market outreach by listing on the FSE public exchange and obtaining DTC approval in the US, the latter an important milestone towards broadening its market presence across the United States and enabling securities to be traded over a much wider selection of brokerage firms. The Company has raised $10,000,000 over several private placements and is initiating steps to increase its profile to a wider base of investors.

George Drazenovic, CEO, St. James Gold, stated, “We are excited to continue to build on the work completed over the past year. As evidenced by our recent site visit to the Florin Gold Project in the Yukon Territory, we are following up with our commitments and previously stated goals to explore our properties and seek to deliver enhanced value to our shareholders. The easy accessibility of our properties, in particular, will serve as a catalyst for further exploration as we look to ramp up our exploration activities in 2022. In the coming weeks, we will look to announce further developments.”

Dr. Stewart Jackson, P Geo, senior technical advisor geologist, and a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Minerals Projects), has reviewed and approved the technical and scientific information presented herein as accurate and has approved this news release.
