Newrange Gold Signs Non-Binding Term Sheet for Business Combination with Mithril Resources to Create a New Americas-Focused Exploration & Development Company

06.03.2023 | 15:55 Uhr | The Newswire

- Newrange Gold Corp. (“Newrange”) has entered into a non-binding term sheet with Mithril Resources Limited (ASX: MTH) for the friendly, at-market business combination of the two companies, whereby Newrange will acquire 100% of the issued capital in Mithril Resources via a reverse takeover (the “RTO”).

- The non-binding term sheet is conditional upon a number of standard conditions, including completion of satisfactory due diligence by each of the parties on each other, completion of financings, the acceptance of the RTO by the shareholders of Mithril Resources and the TSX Venture Exchange, and the negotiation and execution of a formal Definitive Agreement.

- As a result of the RTO, the companies will expand and diversify their project portfolios under development and enhance their management teams to benefit from their collective discovery and mine development experience underpinned by a track record of value-creation.

- The combined Board and Management from Mithril and Newrange will result in a strong team with considerable years of experience and success operating in the prolific Sierra Madre gold-silver belt of Mexico, where Mithril’s high-grade, district-scale, epithermal gold-silver Copalquin Project is located.

- Mithril will enhance its market presence with a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, thereby broadening research coverage and trading liquidity, while Newrange shareholders will gain exposure to a district-scale gold-silver property that already hosts a substantial high-grade gold-silver JORC-compliant resource in just one of several targets, with significant growth potential.

- At the El Refugio target area, within the Copalquin Project, there is a Historic Maiden JORC-compliant Mineral Resource Estimate (Rodney Webster, principal Consultant, AMC Consultants Pty Ltd, 16 November 2021) comprising 691,000 tonnes @ 5.43 g/t gold, 114.2 g/t silver (7.06 g/t Au eq) for 121,000 oz gold plus 2,538,000 oz silver (157,000 oz Au eq) in the Indicated category and 1,725,000 tonnes @ 4.55 g/t gold and 151.7 g/t silver (6.72 g/t Au eq) for 252,000 oz gold plus 8,414,000 oz silver (372,000 oz Au eq) in the Inferred category, using a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au eq.

- Newrange’s existing projects in the prolific Red Lake District of northwestern Ontario will provide geographic diversification with the potential for new discoveries and the depth extension of the past producing Argosy Gold Mine (1931 to 1952 - 101,875 ounces of gold and minor amounts of silver from 276,573 tons of ore at an average grade of 12.7 g/t Au), only 10 kilometres from the Springpole deposit being developed by First Mining Gold Corp.

1 Newrange is not treating these estimates as current mineral resources as a qualified person on behalf of Newrange has not done sufficient work to classify these estimates as current mineral resources. As a requirement of the RTO, Mithril will be producing a NI 43-101 compliant technical report that will incorporate the JORC-compliant resource for the purposes of the Resulting Issuer.

2Au eq. = gold equivalent calculated using a gold:silver price ratio of 70:1. That is, 70 g/t silver = 1 g/t gold. The metal prices used to determine the 70:1 ratio are the cumulative average prices for 2021: gold USD1,798.34 and silver USD25.32.

VANCOUVER, March 6, 2023 - Newrange Gold Corp. (TSXV:NRG), (OTC:NRGOF), (Frankfurt:X6C) ("Newrange" or the “Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding term sheet with Mithril Resources Limited (“Mithril”) dated March 6, 2023, for a proposed friendly business combination of the two companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Newrange will acquire 100% of the issued share capital of Mithril, resulting in Newrange remaining as the surviving entity. The arm’s length transaction will be classified as a Reverse Take Over under the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “RTO”) and the Resulting Issuer will be a Tier 2 mining issuer.

"This is an exciting opportunity and marks a new beginning for Newrange shareholders," stated Robert Archer, Newrange's President & CEO. "The proposed combination with Mithril will result in a new Americas and precious metals focused exploration & development company with a highly experienced management team, enhanced market presence, a solid resource foundation, and significant growth potential. The grades at Copalquin are impressive and the 7,000 hectare district-scale property has excellent potential for resource expansion and additional discoveries. Our existing North Birch and past-producing Argosy Gold Mine properties in the Red Lake District provide geographic diversity and further discovery and resource development potential."

At the present time, Mithril and Newrange are undertaking due diligence on each other's assets and negotiating the final terms of the RTO. The parties intend for the RTO to proceed by way of a scheme of arrangement between Mithril and its shareholders (the "Share Scheme") and a separate concurrent scheme of arrangement between Mithril and the holders of unlisted options (the "Option Scheme") (together, the "Scheme").

The Scheme will be subject to shareholder and Court approval in Australia in accordance with the requirements of Part 5.1 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), as well as the satisfaction of various other conditions that are considered standard for transactions of this nature. The RTO will also be subject to approval by Newrange's shareholders.

Under the Scheme, should it proceed, the companies have agreed to a share exchange ratio of 3.71:1. Newrange will consolidate (the "Consolidation") its share capital on the basis of 12 old shares for one new share, to be conducted in two parts. The first part will be implemented immediately and consist of a 6:1 consolidation in order to effect the Bridge Financing (see below). Shareholders will then be asked to vote on a second consolidation of 2:1 to take effect immediately prior to the closing of the RTO. As a result, on the closing of the RTO, Newrange will issue:

  1. 18.08 Newrange shares for every 1,000 Mithril shares held by Mithril shareholders, for a total of 60,919,214 (subject to final adjustments) Newrange shares, based on a maximum equity value for Mithril of CA$10,965,459, such that Mithril shareholders will hold approximately 78.8% of the resulting issuer and Newrange shareholders will hold approximately 21.2%; and

  2. 7,039,583 warrants to acquire Newrange shares (the Newrange Warrants) in exchange for 389,285,714 options held by Mithril option holders (the Mithril Options), with the Newrange Warrants to be issued on the same terms as the relevant Mithril Options being exchanged at completion.
