In accordance with the terms of the Agreement, the Vendors will sell the Assets to GOLD in exchange for the following:

  • C$575,000 paid in cash by GOLD, to WSM on the closing date of the sale of the Assets (the "Closing Date"); and

  • the issuance of such number of common shares of GOLD ("GOLD Shares") equal to C$575,000 at a per share issue price equal to the volume-weighted average price of the GOLD Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") for the five trading days immediately prior to the Closing Date (the "Payment Shares").


The closing of the Transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, such as the receipt of applicable governmental or regulatory approvals, including conditional approval from the TSX for the issuance of the Payment Shares.

Akiba Leisman , CEO states, "the sale of Almaden converts a non-core asset acquired as part of the Terraco acquisition in August 2019 into cash and securities that will supplement cash flow from the El Compas royalty until cash flow from the San Albino gold steam comes online later this year. Additionally, Sailfish will have the ability to purchase the remaining shares under its amended normal course issuer bid announced on September 5, 2019 , which allows for the repurchase of up to 2,974,522 shares."

Although the Vendors believe that the expectations reflected in forward-looking statements are reasonable, they can give no assurances that the expectations of any forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. Except as required by law, the Vendors disclaim any intention and assume no obligation to update or revise any forward looking statements to reflect actual results, whether as a result of new information, future events, changes in assumptions, changes in factors affecting such forward looking statements or otherwise.
