Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 8, 2022) – Gold Tree Resources Ltd. (CSE: GTX) (“Gold Tree” or the “Company“) announces that it has signed and closed a share purchase agreement dated July 7, 2022 (the “SPA“) with 1314836 BC Ltd. (“BCCo“) in respect of the Company’s previously announced transaction (the “Transaction“), whereby the Company has acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of BCCo. BCCo’s principal asset and undertaking is its wholly owned subsidiary Lithium Valley Holdings Corp., which owns the McDermitt Lithium Property located in Nevada, USA (the “Property“).
Adrian Smith, Gold Tree’s CEO commented, “We see the potential for the Property to host large-scale, long-life sources of lithium, occurring near-surface and falling within the lower end of the global cost curve. The project is located in a mining friendly jurisdiction with significant domestic lithium demand that is currently satisfied by imported material. We also see the opportunity to rapidly advance the project through the exploration stage to create significant value for the Company.”
Pursuant to the SPA, the Company has issued an aggregate of 3,000,000 common shares (the “Consideration Shares“) to the shareholders of BCCo at a deemed price per Consideration Share of $0.20, representing aggregate consideration of $600,000. The aggregate consideration paid under the Transaction was based on a report to confirm the economic geology potential of the McDermitt Lithium Property owned by BCCo dated June 27, 2022, which was prepared by a professional geologist.
The Transaction was completed pursuant to available prospectus exemptions in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The Consideration Shares are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from issuance pursuant to applicable securities laws. The Transaction was an arms-length transaction for the Company and did not constitute a fundamental change or result in a change of control of the Company, within the meaning of the policies of the CSE.
Adrian Smith, Gold Tree’s CEO further commented, “We see this as a strategic acquisition of a key North American property located within one of the most sought-after lithium basins in North America which already hosts two of the largest lithium deposits in the USA.”
