VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 7, 2014) - Animas Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ANI) has mailed to its shareholders a Directors' Circular as required by applicable securities laws in response to the unsolicited offer (the "Offer") by Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. ("Marlin") to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of the Company for $0.10 per common share in cash. Animas previously stated its recommendation to shareholders to not tender their shares to the Offer on December 30, 2013. A copy of the Directors' Circular is available online at www.sedar.com. Marlin has stated that the Offer expires at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on January 28, 2014 (unless the Offer is extended, withdrawn or varied).
In addition, Animas was scheduled to have a special meeting on February 7, 2014 to seek shareholder approval of the sale transaction of the Santa Gertrudis Gold Project to GoGold Resources Inc. ("GoGold"). As GoGold announced its intention on December 30, 2013 to acquire all of the outstanding common shares and warrants of Animas, the Board of Animas has determined that it is in the best interest of the Company to cancel the special meeting and not incur associated costs for the time being.
