EDMONTON, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Golden Predator Mining Corp. (TSX.V: GPY) (formerly Northern Tiger Resources Inc.) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed the merger with Redtail Metals Corp. (“Redtail”) and the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Brewery Creek Project, Yukon, as originally announced on October 28, 2013 and December 17, 2013.
At closing, the Company issued an aggregate of 4,773,405 common shares to former Redtail shareholders, representing approximately 17% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares on completion of all related transactions. As a result of the closing, Redtail is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and has ceased trading on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Following completion of a concurrent reorganization of Americas Bullion Royalty Corp. (“AMB”), to Till Capital Ltd. (“Till”), Golden Predator acquired all of the Yukon assets previously held by AMB in exchange for 1,571,429 common shares of the Company having an aggregate value of CDN$550,000, and a convertible promissory note in the principal amount of CDN$4,700,000 bearing interest at 6% per annum and payable over a period of three years (the “Acquisition”). The balance of the purchase price was satisfied by the grant to Till of a royalty interest in each of the Company’s properties held at closing. As a result of the Acquisition, the Company acquired AMB’s Yukon mineral properties, including Brewery Creek, and AMB’s accumulated tax losses in the amount of approximately CDN$40,000,000.
In the course of the transaction:
- Till subscribed for 6,428,571 common shares of the Company for proceeds of CDN$1,800,000 pursuant to a concurrent private placement;
- Till converted certain outstanding debts of the Company and Redtail owed to Till in exchange for 2,414,774 common shares of the Company issued at a deemed price of CDN$0.21 per common share;
- 3,809,524 common shares were issued to Till at a deemed price of CDN$0.21 per common share upon conversion of the convertible promissory notes issued as partial payment for the Grew Creek project acquired in December 2013; and
- The Company issued an aggregate of 357,143 “flow-through” common shares to certain other subscribers for gross proceeds of $100,000. The “flow-through” common shares are subject to a four month statutory hold period expiring on August 18, 2014.
Following these transactions, Till owns, directly and indirectly, 14,963,584 shares, or approximately 54% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. This number includes shares which Till received in its capacity as a former shareholder of Redtail.
