WHITE ROCK, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2021 / TDG Gold Corp (TSXV:TDG) (the “Company” or “TDG”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding, definitive agreement (“Agreement“) between the Company and ASX-listed Kingsgate Consolidated Limited (“Kingsgate“) for the acquisition of the advanced stage “Nueva Esperanza” silver-gold project, located in the Maricunga Belt of the Atacama Region of Northern Chile (the “Acquisition“). The Agreement supersedes the non-binding letter of intent announced June 29, 2021. (All dollar amounts are in Canadian Dollars unless specified otherwise.)

Nueva Esperanza
The Nueva Esperanza project is located in the northern half of the Maricunga Belt, 140 kilometres (“km“) northeast of the city of Copiapo, which is a regional mining centre. It is situated at 4,000-4,200 metres (“m“) elevation and encompasses three mining areas, Arqueros, Chimberos and Teterita, with permits for development and comes with associated water rights. On April 13, 2016, Kingsgate published a JORC prefeasibility study[1], including estimation of a mineral resource and mineral reserve titled “Nueva Esperanza Pre-feasibility Study” (see Kingsgate’s announcement of the prefeasibility study on April 13, 2016).

In July 2020, the Nueva Esperanza project was granted Environmental Impact Assessment approval allowing the pre-development, construction and operation of the project (see Kingsgate’s news release dated July 14, 2020).

TDG has completed extensive legal and technical due diligence reviews on the Nueva Esperanza project and concluded that the project offers an opportunity for significant value creation for TDG shareholders and other stakeholders, with the objective of transforming TDG into a silver-focused advanced exploration and development company.

As part of its due diligence, TDG commissioned Sue Bird, P.Eng. of MMTS (Moose Mountain Technical Services) to undertake an independent mineral resource estimate for the Nueva Esperanza project in accordance with NI 43-101. On July 08, 2021, TDG announced a current mineral resource estimate for the Nueva Esperanza supported by an independent NI 43-101 technical report.

Binding Agreement
Under the terms of the Agreement, the Acquisition is subject to certain closing conditions including, but not limited to, the concurrent equity financing being co-led by BMO Capital Markets and RBC Capital Markets (see TDG’s news release of July 27, 2021), and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Upon closing, the Acquisition would be transformative for TDG, creating a leading pure precious metals focused company with the ambition to rapidly advance both the Nueva Esperanza project in Chile and TDG’s Shasta project in BC’s Toodoggone Production Corridor to production decisions.

As a condition to the closing of the acquisition, TDG has agreed to raise a minimum of $35,000,000 in an equity financing (the “Concurrent Financing“). Further announcements will follow in due course regarding the financing arrangements.

Key Transaction Terms
Under the terms of the Agreement, in exchange for 100% ownership of Kingsgate’s Chilean subsidiary that holds the Nueva Esperanza project, TDG will pay to Kingsgate the following consideration:

  • $25,000,000 cash on closing, subject to certain working capital and other adjustments.
  • 14.0% of TDG’s outstanding common shares calculated on a post-closing basis (inclusive of any shares issued in a concurrent financing).
  • Up to $25,000,000 in future milestone payments, again subject to certain adjustments, of which up to $10,000,000 may be settled in TDG common shares at TDG’s discretion, with the applicable milestones as follows:
    • a cash payment of $6,250,000 on or before the date that is three months following the date that TDG completes a feasibility study in respect of the Nueva Esperanza project;
    • at TDG’s election, either a cash payment of $5,000,000 or the issuance of 10,000,000 common shares on or before the date that a construction decision is made in respect of the Nueva Esperanza project;
    • at TDG’s election, either a cash payment of $5,000,000 or the issuance of 10,000,000 common shares on or before the first anniversary of the commencement of commercial production at the Nueva Esperanza project, as defined in the Agreement (“Commercial Production”); and
    • A cash payment of $8,750,000 on or before the second anniversary of Commercial Production.

In connection with the Agreement, the Company will enter into an investor rights agreement with Kingsgate (the “Investor Rights Agreement“) to grant Kingsgate certain rights to be set out in the Investor Rights Agreement, including that:

  • So long as Kingsgate owns 10% or more of the issued and outstanding shares of TDG it will be entitled to designate one nominee to the Board of Directors of TDG.
  • For 24 months following closing of the Agreement, Kingsgate will have the right to participate in the issuance of securities offerings to maintain its percentage interest and/or to increase its percentage ownership interest to up to 19.9% of then outstanding shares of TDG.

The Acquisition is subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“) review and approval as well as other conditions precedent, including the completion of the Concurrent Financing. Subject to receiving confirmed orders to the Concurrent Financing in the amount of at least $35,000,000 by October 31, 2021, and the payment by TDG of a non-refundable deposit to Kingsgate in the amount of $500,000, the outside date for the completion of the Acquisition will be November 30, 2021, which date may be extended to December 15, 2021, if factors outside the reasonable control of TDG have prevented closing before November 30, 2021.

Stroud Resources Updates Drilling at Santo Domingo Silver Project, Mexico

TORONTO, Oct. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stroud Resources Ltd. (TSXV-SDR) (“Stroud” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update to its…

TORONTO, Oct. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stroud Resources Ltd. (TSXV-SDR) (“Stroud” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update to its 2021 Phase 1 drilling program at its Santo Domingo Silver Property (“Santo Domingo” or the “Property”), located in Hostotipaquillo, State of Jalisco, Mexico.

To date, the Company has completed 5,725 metres in 14 diamond drill holes as part of its Phase 1 exploration drilling program (Table 1). The drilling program was designed to explore the extent of known vein-hosted silver mineralization on the Property and to begin to define additional silver mineralized zones and vein systems which are anticipated to run parallel to the existing La Raya and Guadalupe silver vein systems. The Company’s Drilling Permit covers 13 drill pads (drill setups) located across the Property and from which 50 diamond drill holes were planned.

Drilling has been slow due to difficult topography, poor ground conditions, and COVID-19 related challenges. In addition, significant historical mine workings throughout the Property have also required slow and careful drilling. Five additional holes to those listed in Table 1 were abandoned after encountering mine workings and being unable to recover the hole (Figure 1).

Table 1. Summary of drill holes completed to date, Phase 1 drilling program.

Datum/Coordinate system: WGS 84 / UTM zone 13N

The first two setups (1 and 3) of the drilling program explored the western edge of the Property stepping out about 200 m south from existing mineralization in the Guadalupe Vein System (Figure 1). Holes SD-21-46, SD-21-47 and SD-21-48 were drilled from setup 1 and holes SD-21-53, SD-21-54 and SD-21-56 were drilled from setup 3. These drill holes intersected the silver vein host rocks (agglomerates) but did not produce significant mineralization. However, the geological continuity of the structure was confirmed as evidenced by quartz ± calcite veinlets and breccias with traces of fine pyrite.

Setup 12 is located 300 metres west of setup 1 and was chosen to explore for any lateral movement of the system in that direction, evidenced by the historical Santa Fe and Santa Clara mines. From setup 12, hole SD-21-80 remained in the cover rocks (grey crystal-lithic tuff), suggesting that the mineralized target rocks are located much deeper in this area, perhaps due to faulting. Hole SD-21-80 did intersect a narrow vein of mainly silver-bearing galena and lesser iron-poor sphalerite at about 264 metres.

Hole SD-21-81 was drilled parallel to hole SD-21-80 but with a steeper dip, intersecting two mineralized zones of grey quartz veining with abundant pyrite and hematite at about 140 m and 180 metres.

Hole SD-21-82 tested a parallel vein system west of Guadalupe and east of SD-21-81 by drilling in the opposite direction. It hit favourable rock but did not intersect significant mineralization.

Figure 1 is available at

Sampling and assaying of the drill core has begun. The Company was delayed awaiting electrical repairs to its core saw and approval from the electrical authority. The Company anticipates sending its samples to the lab this week and will report on results as they become available.
