MAS Gold Corp and Kitsaki Management Limited Partnership Sign Memorandum of Understanding

 

 

 

 

 

MAS Gold Corp. (TSX-V: MAS) is pleased to announce it has entered a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with Kitsaki Management Limited Partnership in respect of MAS’s exploration efforts in the La Ronge Gold Belt region. Kitsaki has managed the economic development activities for the Lac La Ronge Indian Band since 1981.

 

The MOU establishes a basis for maintaining a cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship between MAS, Kitsaki, and its shareholder, which respects the rights and interests of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band and Kitsaki while supporting MAS’s exploration and development activities. Through this collaborative approach, MAS can work towards consent for its exploration and evaluation activities.

 

Although subject to form binding agreements being entered into and any regulatory and stock exchange approvals and notices being obtained, the MOU provides that in consideration for the services to be provided by Kitsaki, MAS will provide Kitsaki with certain compensation that may, at the option of MAS be payable through the issuance of common shares of MAS.

 

Kitsaki will also invest $150,000 into MAS in the form of a convertible 5-year note carrying a zero-interest coupon and be convertible into MAS common shares at maturity or cash at MAS’s option. However, Kitsaki will have a right to convert to common shares at market on each anniversary date of the agreement, and subject to the exchange.

 

Kitsaki will also have a right to appoint one person to MAS’s Board of Directors subject to regulatory and stock exchange requirements and such appointment being authorized at the MAS Annual General Meeting in 2023.

 

Jim Engdahl, MAS Gold’s Chief Executive Officer commented:

 

“I am extremely pleased to have Kitsaki as part of our team in our effort in consolidating the gold play in the La Ronge Greenstone Belt area. I have known members of Kitsaki over my many years of business in Saskatchewan and I can say that having them on our team is a game changer for MAS. I am looking forward to working with Ron Hyggen and his team in our pursuit.”

 

Ron Hyggen, Kitsaki’s Chief Executive Officer commented:

 

“This investment in MAS represents the beginning of a resource development partnership in the traditional territory of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. There are several economic development opportunities associated with resource development and represents the foundation of Kitsaki’s long-term success. We look forward to working with the leadership team from MAS on their efforts to sustainably develop the resource-rich area in the La Ronge gold belt.”
