2022-01-06 10:23:13

TORONTO, Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — G2 Goldfields Inc. (“G2” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GTWO; OTCQX:GUYGF) announces that it has closed the first tranche (the “First Tranche”) of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”). In connection with the closing of the First Tranche, the Company sold 2,250,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.45 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $1,012,500. Each Unit consisted of one common share (“Share”) of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder, on exercise, to purchase one Share for a period of two years following the closing date of First Tranche at an exercise price of $1.20 per Share. The entire First Tranche was purchased by G2’s Executive Chairman, Patrick Sheridan, who stated: “I am delighted to continue to invest in this exciting high grade gold discovery and am highly encouraged with the excellent drilling results to date. I look forward to Dan Noone (CEO), and his exceptional exploration team, delivering the maiden resource in Q1 2022.”

The proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance exploration activities at the Company’s 19,200-acre OKO project, Guyana and for general corporate purposes. The Company anticipates completing a further closing of the Offering on or about January 14, 2022 to raise total proceeds of up to $2,025,000.

The securities issued pursuant to the closing of the First Tranche of the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period. The Offering is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”).

The Offering is considered a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) since Mr. Sheridan participated as the only subscriber in the First Tranche. Pursuant to Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval because the Shares trade on the TSXV and the fair market value of insiders’ participation in the Offering will be below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101. The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Offering, but it will be filed less than 21 days in advance of the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances so as to be able to avail itself of potential financing opportunities and to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.
