TORONTO, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angus Gold Inc. (TSX-V: GUS) (“Angus” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to settle CAD$70,000 of debt owed to Steve Burleton, Angus’ Interim CEO, in consideration for the issuance of 86,420 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of CAD$0.81 per share (the “Debt Settlement”). The debt is payable to Mr. Burleton in respect of consulting fees accruing since April 7, 2021. The closing of the Debt Settlement is expected to occur immediately following approval from TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). The Company expects that the proposed Debt Settlement will assist the Company in preserving its cash for working capital.

Mr. Burleton is an insider of the Company, and accordingly, the issuance of common shares to an insider in connection with the Debt Settlement is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transaction (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on the exemption from the requirement for a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval under MI 61-101 on the basis of the exemptions contained in section 5.5(1)(a) and section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the consideration of the shares to be issued to Mr. Burleton in connection with the Debt Settlement does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Debt Settlement has been approved by all of the independent directors of the Company.

All securities to be issued pursuant to the Debt Settlement will be subject to a four month and one day from the closing date of the Debt Settlement, and is subject to the receipt of regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSXV.

About Angus Gold:
Angus Gold Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of highly prospective gold properties. The Company’s flagship project is the Golden Sky Project in Wawa, Ontario.

Insiders currently own approximately 47% of the Company and New Gold Inc. (TSX: NGD) approximately 9.9%, each based on the number of issued and outstanding common shares.

On behalf of Angus Gold Inc.,

Steve Burleton
Chief Executive Officer and Director
