VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xali Gold Corp. (TSXV:XGC) (“Xali Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it intends to carry out a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) to raise gross proceeds of approximately Cdn$500,000.   Approximately $250,000 of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to further our permitting and targeting for drilling programs on our gold-silver projects and approximately $250,000 will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Private Placement will consist of the sale of approximately 8,333,333 units (the “Units”) at a price of Cdn$0.06 to raise gross proceeds of approximately Cdn$500,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Unit Share”) and one-half share purchase warrant (each whole being a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable for one additional share of the Company’s common stock (a “Warrant Share”) for two years at a conversion price of $0.12, subject to an acceleration provision. If at any time after March 30th, 2022, the Company’s common shares have a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange at or above a price of Cdn$0.20 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may give notice by news release that expiration of the Warrants will be accelerated to 40 days from the date of providing such notice. Both Unit Shares and Warrant Shares will be subject to a mandatory four month and one day hold period commencing the day of closing of the Private Placement. The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval. There is no minimum offering size.

If aggregate subscriptions for Units under Private Placement exceed the maximum number of Units to be sold, Xali Gold may, subject to TSXV approval, increase the size of the Private Placement or subscriptions will otherwise be accepted on a “first-come, first-served” basis. The Company may pay finder’s fees in connection with a portion of the Private Placement.

Joanne Freeze, CEO and a director of the Company, and other directors of the Company are expected to subscribe for a portion of the Private Placement, which in total will be for less than 25% of Xali Gold’s market capitalization. The Company is therefore intending to rely upon exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.

The Private Placement is being offered to both accredited investors and existing shareholders of Xali Gold who, as of the close of business on October 15th, 2021, held common shares of the Company (and who continue to hold common shares of the Company at the time of closing) pursuant to the prospectus exemption set out in British Columbia Instrument 45-534 and in similar instruments in other provinces of Canada.

Unless the Xali Gold shareholder is a person that has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment and, if such shareholder is resident in a jurisdiction of Canada, that advice has been obtained from a person that is registered as an investment dealer in such jurisdiction, the aggregate subscription cost to such shareholder for the Units subscribed under the Private Placement cannot exceed $15,000 (250,000 Units).

About Xali Gold
Xali Gold has launched a comprehensive growth strategy to acquire gold and silver projects with near surface exploration potential, near-term production potential and previous mining histories. Xali Gold plans to advance our growing bank of gold and silver assets internally and/or with industry partners.  

El Oro, remains as our flagship asset, as it is a district scale gold project encompassing a well-known prolific high-grade gold-silver epithermal vein system in Mexico. The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total, from which approximately 6.4 million ounces of gold and 74 million ounces of silver were reported to have been produced from just two of these veins (Ref. Mexico Geological Service Bulletin No. 37, Mining of the El Oro and Tlapujahua Districts. 1920, T. Flores*). Modern understanding of such systems indicates that several of the El Oro district’s veins hold excellent discovery potential.

Xali Gold is dedicated to being a responsible Community partner.

Tantalex Resources Corporation Provides Exploration and Corporate Update

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – December 3, 2021 – Tantalex Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX) (CNSX:TTX.CN) (“Tantalex” or the “Corporation”),…

 

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – December 3, 2021 – Tantalex Resources Corporation (CSE:TTX) (CNSX:TTX.CN) (“Tantalex” or the “Corporation”), is pleased to provide an update on its exploration and corporate activities.

Manono Lithium Tailings Project

 

Drilling on the Manono Lithium Tailings Project (the “Tailings Project”) is now completed with a total of 9,279m of aircore drilling and 980m of Cobra drilling. Sample preparation is ongoing and being sent to the ALS laboratory in Ireland for assaying. Initial batch of 1080 samples have arrived in Ireland since mid November but results are still pending due to extended delays in customs clearance.

 

Exploration on Pegmatite Corridor

 

Tantalex would also like to confirm that road and drill pad preparation to begin drilling on the near surface pegmatite occurrences along the Corridor are completed and that drilling is expected to commence in the coming days.

 

The objective with this drill program is to test near surface pegmatites in areas of known tin and tantalum occurrences for potential lithium content.

 

As indicated in our press release of November 1st, the pegmatite corridor is downstrike from the historical Manono Kitotolo mine where AVZ Minerals have recently published a 400M ton resource report with average Li2O grades of 1,65%. (AVZ Minerals, Definitive Feasibility Study, Manono Lithium & Tin Project, April 21,2020).

 

The Manono region is set to become an important tier one supplier of lithium with AVZ Minerals recently announcing an investment of USD $240 million dollars for a 24% stake in their Manono Lithium project from CATH, a private investment entity jointly owned by Mr. Pei Zhenhua and Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited (“CATL”),

  

MOU with XIMEI

 

Tantalex is also pleased to announce that it is currently in ongoing discussions with Ximei Resources Holding Ltd. (“Ximei”) to enter into a definitive agreement that will replace and supersede the memorandum of understanding (the “MOU”) previously announced on February 18, 2021. Completion of such negotiation shall be subject to XIMEI’s formal confirmation and public announcement. The definitive agreement will provide the framework for a strategic partnership between Tantalex and Ximei, whereby the parties will collaborate in conducting a feasibility study and ultimately establish a tantalum refining plant in the Manono region, Tangyanika Province, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “Region”) should all underlying requirements set forth in the definitive agreement be fulfilled. The refining plant will be intended to treat the tantalum concentrate produced by Tantalex and other local cooperatives in the Region with whom Tantalex has established business partnerships.

 

The Region is richly endowed with coltan and cassiterite, which is often closely associated to the numerous lithium pegmatites. Based on Tantalex’s exploration and resource definition activities on the Tailings Project and along the Pegmatite Corridor, Tantalex considers that an annual production of 50-80t of net metal is achievable on its concessions. Given the eluvial and alluvial nature of the coltan and cassiterite, semi-industrial production of tantalum and tin concentrate could potentially start as early as Q3 2022 on Tantalex’s concessions.

 

Corporate update

 

Tantalex is pleased to announce that it intends to amend its articles of incorporation to give effect to a name change of the Corporation to “Tantalex Lithium Resources Corp.”, which will allow for an accurate reflection of the nature of its lithium exploration and development objectives and short-term endeavours. The name change and the amendment of the Corporation’s articles of incorporation will be subject to the approval of the shareholders and will be a matter to be voted upon during the Corporation’s next annual general and special shareholders meeting set to occur no later than as of the 3rd week of January 2022.  

 

The company also confirms that AfriMet Resources has fully exercised their 50,000,000 warrants and, as a result, their current shareholding in Tantalex stands at 28%.

 

An additional 5,000,000 warrants have been exercised and a $100,000 convertible debenture issued in 2018 in consideration of a loan has been converted into 2,520,000 common shares of the Corporation at a per-share price of $0.05, the whole in accordance with Canadian Securities Exchange guidelines.  

 

Qualified Person

 

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Gary Pearse MSc, P. Eng, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).
