Corvus Gold Inc. (TSX: KOR) (NASDAQ: KOR) announces it has entered into a USD $20M loan agreement with AngloGold Ashanti North America Inc. to fund the ongoing permitting and pre-development work at the Company’s North Bullfrog project as well as ongoing exploration at its Mother Lode and Lynnda Strip projects. Highlights of the agreement for the USD $20M unsecured loan include:
The Loan constitutes a “related party transaction” under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 — Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) as AngloGold is a related party of Corvus given its greater than 10% beneficial shareholding. Pursuant to Section 5.7(1)(f) of MI 61-101, the Company is exempt from obtaining minority approval of the Company’s shareholders in respect of the Loan because it was determined that the Loan is on reasonable commercial terms that are not less advantageous to the Company than if the Loan was obtained from a person dealing at arm’s length with the Company and because the Loan is not convertible into, or repayable in, equity or voting securities of the Company or a subsidiary of the Company or otherwise participating in nature. The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Loan. However, the material change report will be filed less than 21 days prior to the closing of the Loan, which is consistent with market practice and which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances. This transaction remains subject to TSX acceptance.
