TORONTO, April 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- G2 Goldfields Inc. (formerly Sandy Lake Gold Inc.) (SLAU.V) (the “Company”) announces that it has filed articles of amendment to (i) change its name from “Sandy Lake Gold Inc.” to “G2 Goldfields Inc.” (the “Name Change”); and (ii) consolidate the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one (1) new common share for every two (2) existing common shares (the “Consolidation”), all effective as of April 4, 2019.  Shareholder approval of the Name Change and Consolidation was obtained at the Company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders held on February 12, 2019. 

In connection with the Name Change and Consolidation, the Company has sent letters of transmittal to holders of its common shares for use in transmitting their existing share certificates (“Existing Certificates”) to the Company’s registrar and transfer agent, TSX Trust Company, in exchange for new certificates (“New Certificates”) representing the number of post-Consolidation common shares to which such shareholder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation, and reflecting the Name Change.  No delivery of a New Certificate to a shareholder will be made until the shareholder has surrendered its Existing Certificates.  Until surrendered, each Existing Certificate shall be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of post-Consolidation common shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.

The common shares of the Company reflecting the Name Change and Consolidation will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange effective as of April 8, 2019, under the new symbol “GTWO”.
